Corona Plastic Surgeon Educates Patients on Breast Implant Placement Options

Dr. Christopher Chung Informs Patients How Factors Such as Implant Placement Can Affect the Final Results of Breast Augmentation and Makes Personalized Recommendations

CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2015) -  The decision to undergo breast augmentation involves a number of choices regarding the surgical approach that can dramatically impact the final results of the procedure, explains Riverside plastic surgeon Christopher Chung, MD. He suggests that selecting an implant type, size, incision placement, and implant placement can seem overwhelming at first to many women. To help ensure that his patients make well-informed choices about their health, he dedicates much of the consultation process to educating patients about their breast implant options.

With so many different approaches, Dr. Chung says he is able to custom-tailor each breast augmentation in a manner best suited to the individual's unique physiology. Most breast surgery patients, regardless of body type, typically seek results that look realistic and natural, he notes. As a result, he explains that he keeps this goal in mind when making recommendations for the details of each procedure. Using advanced technology such as the Keller Funnel™, he adds, he can often reduce the size of incisions as well as minimize postoperative scarring for exceptionally natural results.

Dr. Chung also endeavors to help his patients select the best implant placement for a natural appearance. He says that choosing whether to place the implant over or under the chest muscle can significantly change the final outcome of the procedure. "Implants placed over the chest muscles can produce superior results for patients who have extra skin around the breast or an ample amount of natural breast tissue," says the Corona plastic surgeon. "However, for patients with thinner skin or less breast tissue, placing the implant below the muscle can create a more natural shape and slope to the breasts." A physical exam to assess the thickness of the skin around the breast, the amount of natural breast tissue, and the laxity of the skin around the breasts will be used to help determine which implant placement can provide optimal results and achieve each woman's individual cosmetic goals, he concludes.

Ultimately, Dr. Chung believes that educating patients about their options for breast surgery, including breast implant placement, offers numerous benefits. As a result, he strives to provide an informative resource about the techniques available that may be able to provide the most natural-looking results possible.
