I knew Dr. French was the one

  • Was it worth it? Yes
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr. French and his staff. I had consultations with 5 other plastic surgeons, mind but I knew Dr. French was the one. I had a breast augmentation in May and they look completely natural! He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to answer all of your questions and make you feel at ease. His patient coordinator Sherry is awesome! She knows a lot and is able to answer many of your questions too. Also, many of his nurses have had procedures done and are very helpful in helping you out and telling you about how the procedure is. I will be back to see him if I plan on having anymore work done in the future!

What is an ideal fill for breast implants for...
There is no certain number that is an "ideal fill" for breast implants for a patient's skin envelope. The concept is to have a breast implant that is the appropriate size such that the skin envelope is filled out. Sometimes, this is not possible and requires a breast lift or mastopexy. Also, sometimes the skin envelope can be better filled if the implant is placed above the muscle rather than below the muscle. This is typically done in a patient who has a moderate amount of breast tissue and does not want a mastopexy. Again, the amount of the fill or the size of the implant would vary with each patient and the amount of the skin envelope.

What will you do if you get a scar from breas...
Every patient who has a breast augmentation will have scars. The scars are either around the nipple areolar complex, near the inframammary crease, or in the armpit. I do not perform the operation in the armpit, or axilla for various reasons. If the scar around the nipple areolar complex or the inframammary position does become unsightly, there are multiple things you can do regarding revision of the scars. However, we try to prevent unsightly scarring by doing certain things at the time of the surgery and during the healing process.

Hi, I'm very interested in getting breast im...
First of all, I believe that the doctor should be board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery. There are multiple boards that have the word "cosmetic" in the name; however, the only recognized board for doing this type of surgery is the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Secondly, one should look for the amount of experience the surgeon has and how often he performs the operation. Also, I think it is important where the operation is performed. That is, is it performed in a hospital or an accredited outpatient surgical facility. It is also helpful to have references from either the prospective patient's friends or other patients that have been treated by the surgeon. Finally, I think that a comfort level with the surgeon following the initial consultation regarding his philosophy, his plan of approach, and how he and his office address your concerns are all important.

If the breast implant is in fact under the muscle, the pectoralis major muscle will "squeeze" the implant with certain exercises. This is more evident in some patients than others. This is more apparent when the exercise performed is designed specifically for the pectoralis major muscle. This action does not create a problem other than the temporary distortion of the muscle.
