San Francisco Plastic Surgeon Gives Breast Augmentation a Woman's
As a Female Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Karen Horton Can Relate to the Goals
Women Have for Their Breast Augmentation, Breast Reconstruction, and
Other Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Procedures
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Dr. Karen Horton, a
board-certified Plastic Surgeon in San Francisco, says approximately
half of the patients that visit her office each day are interested in
some form of breast augmentation. She says many of these women are
mothers who would like to rejuvenate their breasts after childbirth,
as well as address permanent changes including deflation, loss of
volume, and sagging.
According to the blog post entitled, "Dr. Horton Outlines Breast
Augmentation from Consultation to Recovery," the San Francisco
Plastic Surgeon's female patients generally fall into two main
pulations: "Women who have finished having their children, are
healthy and relatively fit, and are ready to focus on themselves and
welcome an improved body image; or women who are seeking breast
cancer reconstruction after breast cancer treatment."
Regardless of the population in which they are classified, Dr. Horton
says each patient often strives for one -- or more -- of three common
1. "To achieve greater breast fullness that will enable her to be
more proportional to the rest of her body curves or body shape."
2. "To regain breast fullness or volume that was lost after she has
3. "To achieve better symmetry than her current appearance."
No matter their goals, Dr. Horton encourages women who are seeking
breast augmentation, or even a more comprehensive mommy makeover
procedure, to "not feel guilt about considering doing something for
themselves as a woman, a mother, or a wife." She educates mothers
that Cosmetic Plastic Surgery can be an empowering and positive
experience. For example, she says breast augmentation surgery has
many benefits for women such as:
-- Boosting one's self-esteem
-- Regaining breast volume and fullness
-- Improving breast symmetry
-- Improving fit for bras and clothing
-- Feeling comfortable and natural in one's own skin
In regards to the comfort and care she is able to provide her patients,
Dr. Horton says, "As a female Plastic Surgeon who shares the same
anatomy as the great majority of individuals I see in the office,
most of my patients confide that they feel comfortable sharing their
thoughts and concerns with me not only as their surgeon, but as a
woman." She adds that as a mother of twins, a healthy individual, a
wife, and a full-time professional career woman, she only recommends
procedures that she would have performed on her own body.
