Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
Although some people feel that women in their early twenties do not think much about their long-term health, this has not been the experience of Dr. Robert Cohen. At the Scottsdale Center for Plastic Surgery, Robert Cohen, M.D., has seen a steady increase in the number of younger women carefully considering their breast augmentation options in Scottsdale and looking for a high-quality result that will provide them a natural look for years to come. To help these women research their options, Dr. Cohen offers several augmentation resources on his Web site (http://www.scottsdalecenterforplasticsurgery.com).
"In the past," says Dr. Cohen, "many younger patients were not fully aware of their breast augmentation options, and many would end up with a less natural final result that can occur with placement of overfilled saline implants above the chest muscle. But now, more and more of my younger breast augmentation patients from the Phoenix area are very well informed about their choices, and are looking for a result that is as beautiful and natural as possible."
Part of the shift may be attributed to the increased interest in the latest generation of cohesive silicone gel (gummy bear) breast implants. Women quickly realized that this implant type both looks and feels more like natural breast tissue than the saline implants that had been the dominant option for most women during the 1990s and early 2000s. Another reason younger women may be turning to a more natural look is the societal shift in styles and sensibilities that favors a more proportionate and refined approach to beauty.
"I've always been a proponent of natural-looking breast augmentation for my Scottsdale area patients," says Dr. Cohen. "Whether a woman wants to be in the more modest size range or in a fuller size range, it is still very important to maintain a natural breast shape and to ensure that the implant fits the proportions of the body. Size is a very personal decision, but a natural shape and softer feel should be the goal of any breast augmentation."
Given the current slowing of the U.S. economy, cost continues to be a factor for all women considering breast augmentation, particularly younger women who are just starting to build their finances. However, young women are now putting greater emphasis on long term value - finding a surgeon who can help them create an ideal look that they can enjoy for many years to come.
"I truly understand that aesthetic surgery can be a significant financial investment, especially for younger patients," adds Dr. Cohen. "But that is exactly what breast augmentation is; an investment in your body. If a patient seeks out a 'bargain basement' surgery, she will not only be more likely to get an inferior result, but she also may be getting a lower level of safety. I believe that using the highest quality silicone implants, combined with the latest techniques and a board-certified M.D. anesthesiologist gives my patients the safest surgical experience."
To help make plastic surgery more affordable for all his patients, Dr. Cohen offers cosmetic surgery financing through CareCredit, the nation's largest healthcare financing company. He welcomes women of all ages and backgrounds to his comfortable, state-of-the-art office, conveniently located in Paradise Valley.
