Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Pap (http://www.drpap.com) says that the top procedures over the past year at his Boston area cosmetic surgery practice are breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction. The popularity of those procedures mirrors the results of a recent survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, which revealed that the five top surgical procedures in 2010 were breast augmentation, liposuction, eyelid surgery, tummy tuck and breast reduction.
"A better economy has motivated many men and women to consider improving their appearance and self-confidence with these types of procedures," says Dr. Pap. "For example, my female patients often say that they have wanted to enhance their breasts for some time and now have the financial means to fulfill those goals."
Women may opt for breast augmentation in the Boston area for many different reasons. For example, for some women, breast implants offer a way to restore the volume lost after pregnancy, nursing, and weight loss. In other cases, women may feel that their breasts have always been too small and that breast enlargement can provide a solution.
"In addition to breast augmentation, breast lifts have become increasingly popular," notes Dr. Pap. "For some of my patients, combining augmentation with a lift offers both the enhanced size and more feminine profile that they want."
By combining breast augmentation with a breast lift at his Boston area practice, Dr. Pap also can provide women with the benefits from both procedures with only one recovery period needed. "Combining procedures can provide many benefits for my patients, which is why I take the time to discuss these options during the consultation," Dr. Pap says. "For example, to accentuate her results I may perform liposuction on the hips or stomach for a woman who is having breast enhancement."
During the consultation, Dr. Pap discusses the patient's specific goals to determine how to customize the treatment plan for attractive, natural-looking results. Many patients choose liposuction to complement another cosmetic procedure such as a face lift, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation for a complete rejuvenation.
