(Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011
According to the most recent stats from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), 9.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States in 2010, with breast enhancements accounting for more than 500,000 of that total. At the upcoming 2011 symposium hosted by ASAPS in Boston this May 6-10, Dan C. Mills, MD, FACS will discuss the popularity of procedures such as breast augmentation and breast reduction during a course that will focus on his approach to breast asymmetry at his Orange County plastic surgery practice.
With cosmetic breast enhancement accounting for over 36% of all surgical procedures performed in 2010, Dr. Mills says creating a balanced aesthetic appearance is always the goal. He adds that breast asymmetry can have a significant impact on a woman’s self-confidence, which is why he believes the upcoming course at the ASAPS symposium is important.
By participating in such courses and addressing common patient concerns and expectations, Dr. Mills says plastic surgeons like him can be more prepared for changes in the field of cosmetic surgery, and empower patients as they strive to improve not only their self-image, but their quality of life as well. He adds that regardless of whether a patient is considering surgical or nonsurgical aesthetic enhancement, breast augmentation or breast reduction, plastic surgeons must remember each patient is unique and requires an individual approach.
