Commenting on a recent article, Dr. J suggests that size may make a big difference in breast augmentation surgeries and other procedures, but that doesn’t mean that bigger is always better.

Choosing the right size for a breast augmentation is crucial, says Dr. J

While many women believe that they feel and look better with larger breasts, a very significant number of women opt for breast reduction procedures, not only to improve their appearance and reduce unwanted attention, but to deal with back pain,,,,

According to an article published May 17 by the San Diego Union-Tribune, a roadside billboard in Riverside County declaring “Size Matters” next to coffee cups labelled with the letters “B” and “D” is stirring controversy. Specifically, area high school student Anna Gorski is petitioning on Change.org to remove the billboard, which she feels is offensive. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon known more casually as Dr. J, notes that, while he’ll leave it to local residents to determine whether or not the billboard is appropriate for public view, the news story does present a chance to explain more precisely how size really does, in fact, matter in plastic surgery.

The main thing, Dr. J notes, is that while sizes definitely plays a role in breast augmentation surgeries and other procedures, that is not the same thing as arguing that bigger is always better. Of course, the Riverside billboard is promoting breast augmentation, and that remains one of the most popular of surgeries performed by Dr. J and plastic surgeons worldwide. Dr. J notes, however, that while many women believe that they feel and look better with larger breasts, a very significant number of women opt for breast reduction procedures, not only to improve their appearance and reduce unwanted attention, but to deal with back pain that can be associated with oversized breasts.

Indeed, Dr. J adds, even women who want to enlarge their breasts might consider that sometimes a bit less really can be more. All patients are different, Dr. J notes, and the D cups that might look spectacular on some women may appear merely excessive on someone else. The trick for a breast procedure, he notes, is to find just the right amount of augmentation or reduction that best flatters the patient’s appearance and allows her to feel her absolute best. Dr. J adds that this also applies to the buttock augmentation with fat transfer, more popularly known as the Brazilian butt lift. With this kind of augmentation, there is definitely a point where an overzealous use of transferred body fat can result in an appearance that is essentially too much of a good thing.

Of course, Dr. J adds, the primary goal of any plastic surgery should be about making the patient feel that she looks like the best possible version of herself. Patients, he adds, should seek out only board certified physicians who are able to provide the kind of results they desire for themselves as effectively and safely as possible, he notes.

Dr. J is double board certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. For more information, readers can call Dr. J’s office at 310-683-0200 or visit his practice online at http://www.DrJPlasticSurgery.com.
