Share Article

Dr. Remus Repta, who specializes in breast augmentation in Phoenix, questions why media would call the L.A. coroner’s findings that Whitney Houston had breast implants “surprising” when breast augmentation is the top cosmetic procedure in the U.S.

Dr. Remus Repta of Advanced Aesthetic Associates says he's not surprised that the Los Angeles County coroner found scars associated with breast implants on Whitney Houston’s body, since breast augmentation in Phoenix and across the nation is extremely common.

What Dr. Repta finds interesting is the spin the media put on the results of the coroner's report, which indicated there were small scars associated with breast implants on Houston’s breasts.

"Whitney Houston's tragic death was covered by news sources across the nation, but I was shocked to see that evidence of breast implants was considered by the media to be a 'surprising detail'” Dr. Repta says.

"While she may not have been overly open about having had cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation is very common and continues to be the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States."

American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics show that breast augmentation is the top cosmetic plastic surgery procedure in the country, with more than 300,000 augmentations recorded in 2011 alone.

"Breast augmentation is also one of the most popular procedures at our Phoenix plastic surgery practice," Dr. Repta says. "It has become the most common cosmetic procedure because it can be such a positive change in how a woman looks and feels about her body. When performed properly, breast augmentation is a straight-forward and safe way to create a natural-looking enhancement that helps women feel more confident and better about themselves."

Dr. Repta and the other board-certified plastic surgeons at Advanced Aesthetic Associates pride themselves in providing personalized solutions for each of their patients.

"People may have been surprised to discover that Houston had breast implants at some point in her life because she did not look like she had had cosmetic surgery," Dr. Repta says. "With modern techniques, natural-looking results are easy to achieve through plastic surgery in Phoenix and across the nation.    

"Advances in technology continue to help patients look and feel their best, and I hope Whitney Houston had a positive experience with her procedure, as well."
