Corona Plastic Surgeon Tailors Breast Augmentation for Each Patient

Dr. Chung Delivers Custom Results Through a Variety of Surgical Techniques and Implant Styles

CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - Dr. Christopher Chung, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Corona, operates his private practice with an in-house surgical facility. At Renaissance Aesthetic Surgery, patients are offered a wide variety of cosmetic procedures, ranging from laser-assisted liposuction to breast augmentation. As one of the most popular plastic surgeries performed in the United States, Dr. Chung believes breast augmentation yields the best results when tailored to meet an individual patient's needs and expectations.

Dr. Chung highlights that implants are not intended to alter the shape of the breasts. If a patient is dissatisfied with the shape of the breasts (due to sagging or asymmetry between the two breasts), then breast augmentation surgery with implants will not significantly alter this shape -- the breasts will simply be larger.

According to Dr. Chung, the best candidates for breast augmentation surgery are those patients who like the shape of their breasts, but simply desire them to be larger. In order to alter the shape of the breast, some form of breast contouring -- either in conjunction with or without implants -- is needed. Dr. Chung incorporates this discussion into his patient consultation process. He considers the surgery itself to be the easiest part of the breast augmentation process; the challenging part is discussing and deciding upon the best options to ensure patients receive the results they desire.

While every surgeon operates with different degrees of efficiency, breast augmentation surgery takes an average of 30 minutes. In general, all implants are placed "under the muscle." Implants can be placed via various entry points:

  • Periareolar
  • Inframammary
  • Transaxillary

Dr. Chung does not believe there is one single "best" method and tailors his techniques depending upon the needs of the individual patient. He notes that the decision about which specific implant is best for each patient requires the same level of discussion, as each type has pros and cons. Patients can choose between different implant options including:

  • Saline filled vs. silicone gel
  • Regular vs. moderate vs. high profile silhouettes
  • Smooth vs. textured

One of the most common reasons patients cite for reoperation is choosing a size that did not yield their desired results during the first surgery. Dr. Chung provides his Corona plastic surgery patients with his customized sizing method to properly ascertain the desired results. He is proud to say that, in the past five years, he has not had any patient request a reoperation due to size dissatisfaction.
