Philadelphia Plastic Surgeon Offers 2 Unique Breast Augmentation Educational Tools

Dr. Louis P. Bucky Releases an Easy-to-Read Breast Augmentation Guide and Uses In-Office Vectra XT 3D Imaging Technology to Help Those Considering the Procedure to Make Educated Decisions About the Specifics of Treatment

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2013) - Dr. Louis Bucky, a board-certified Philadelphia plastic surgeon, performs over 150 breast augmentations a year and has worked with patients from 18-73 years old. A recognized leader in innovative techniques and technology for the procedure, Dr. Bucky has recently released a comprehensive breast augmentation guide for prospective patients.

According to a new blog post on his practice's website entitled, "Our Comprehensive Breast Augmentation Guide," this breast enhancement resource is written in language intended to be easily understood by people without a medical background. Dr. Bucky wanted to create a resource for patients considering breast augmentation to use as an educational tool without the burden of jargon-heavy medical diction. Dr. Bucky says this resource answers many common questions his patients have asked over the years and addresses common concerns they often express throughout the course of the treatment process.

Dr. Bucky's breast augmentation guide walks patients through the process of the procedure from beginning to end, covering such topics as:

  • What to look for when choosing a surgeon
  • Common reasons patients seek breast augmentation
  • Deciding between silicone and saline breast implants
  • Discussing shape and profile options
  • Choosing incision type and implant placement
  • When to consider a breast lift
  • The use of fat transfer as an implant substitute for natural breast augmentation 
  • How 3D imaging technology aids in envisioning potential results
  • Dr. Bucky's "no touch" technique that leads to a gentle recovery

While taking advantage of educational resources to enhance patient understanding before they even enter the office, Dr. Bucky is also committed to offering individuals considering breast augmentation some of the latest advances once they arrive for an in-person consultation. In a blog post titled "Visualizing Breast Augmentation Results With 3D Imaging," Dr. Bucky highlights that, "The more a patient knows -- or more importantly, sees -- directly correlates with their ability to make better decisions." Dr. Bucky's practice uses one of only four Vectra® XT 3D imaging systems in the world to provide patients with an in-office tool to help decide on the specifics of their procedure. The Vectra® XT generates 3-dimensional images that are created using the patients' own body measurements. This projected image allows patients to see how the various shapes, sizes, and profiles of implants will look on a 3D model based off of their own bodies, rather than looking at two-dimensional photographs of the bodies and results of others. Dr. Bucky says that, while even the most advanced technology cannot claim to predict the future with 100 percent accuracy, the Vectra® XT imaging system can give one a general idea of what the potential results may look like. He also highlights that his Philadelphia plastic surgery patients who have used the Vectra® XT as part of their decision-making process have proven to have higher rates of satisfaction with their final results.

Dr. Bucky says the philosophy behind his use of both the breast augmentation guide and the Vectra® XT system are the same: a well-informed patient is better able to make aesthetic choices that align with their natural body type and their expectations.
