Caring for breast cancer patients requires the expertise of reconstructing a breast following mastectomy and the aesthetic eye and artistic skills to enlarge, lift, or reduce the opposite breast to achieve breast symmetry and balance.
Leesburg, VA (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
According to a recent study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast augmentation procedures rose 2% in the past year, a number Dr. Behzad Parva, a plastic surgeon in Leesburg, VA, says he expects to continue to increase. The ASPS report also states that breast reconstruction procedures increased by 8% in 2010. Dr. Parva says the growth in breast surgery procedures has demanded more specialized focus from plastic surgeons on overall breast care. He adds that a plastic surgeon focused on breast reconstruction has typically undergone the training, and possesses the extensive experience, necessary to provide excellent cosmetic surgical results in the full range of breast care. Through extensive research and understanding of the physiology and anatomy of the breasts, he adds that board-certified plastic surgeons are the most qualified for performing cosmetic procedures and those that are committed to breast reconstruction are often the most experienced to also perform cosmetic breast procedures. “Caring for breast cancer patients requires the expertise of reconstructing a breast following mastectomy and the aesthetic eye and artistic skills to enlarge, lift, or reduce the opposite breast to achieve breast symmetry and balance.”
He also says that, regardless of whether patients are seeking breast reconstruction or cosmetic breast augmentation, they should ensure their surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons before undergoing any procedure. “Board-certified plastic surgeons dedicate years of focused training in both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedures. A rigorous examination process is required and lifelong continued medical education with re-certification exams every 10 years is a significant distinction from non-board-certified surgeons.”
Dr. Parva says his practice is dedicated to providing comprehensive breast care to patients seeking breast reconstruction or breast augmentation in Leesburg, VA. As a reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgeon, he says he has been privileged to aid those affected by breast cancer through reconstructive procedures, as well as providing patients with aesthetic restorations backed by experience and knowledge. “It is most gratifying to serve our patients reconstructive and cosmetic breast care needs and be rewarded by the sense of wholeness and positive self-esteem reflected in their smiles and their warm hugs.”
