In the most recent
study from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the top
five most performed procedures for women in 2009 were breast augmentation,
liposuction, eyelid surgery, abdominoplasty, and breast reduction. Steven H.

AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) February 08,
Of the more than 10 million cosmetic enhancement procedures performed in
2009, the most recent statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic
Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) show more than 113,000 women decided to undergo breast
reduction surgery. At the Arizona Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Scottsdale
plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Turkeltaub recently discussed the possible benefits
associated with this procedure and answered some of the most common questions
that his female patients have concerning a breast reduction.
Dr. Turkeltaub stated that the most common reasons many women pursue a
breast reduction are for the neck, back, and shoulder pain associated with
having very large breasts. He also noted that having overly large or
asymmetrical breasts can have a significant and detrimental impact on a woman's
self-esteem and must not be disregarded. During each female patient's
consultation, Dr. Turkeltaub reviews the various reasons she is considering a
breast reduction, and will discuss the procedure in detail, including risks,
complications, and general expectations.
Whether Dr. Turkeltaub is performing nonsurgical procedures such as BOTOX®
injections or dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®, or a surgical
procedure such as the tummy tuck, he states that he always discusses the
various risks and benefits of each procedure as well as each patient's own
unique expectations and goals for their aesthetic enhancement. He notes that
women considering a breast reduction tend to feel more comfortable knowing how
common and effective the procedure is, as well as the extremely high
satisfaction rate associated with the results. Dr. Turkeltaub adds that in over
23 years of practice, he has never had a patient express regret over their
decision to undergo a breast reduction, with many actually stating they should
have pursued the procedure years ago.
