Dr. Schwartz believes the goal in breast augmentation should be “the prettiest breasts possible.” That may sound obvious, yet for most plastic surgeons it is rarely the aim. Often there is no stated goal, or if there is one, it revolves around a certain cup or implant size, regardless of how it looks. Your breast implants need to fit comfortably within the height and width of your chest. That’s why most of the bad breast augmentation you’ve seen is due to overly large implants. When Dr. Schwartz performs this procedure he absolutely pays attention to size but believes that a mere size increase should never replace their overall beauty and relationship to the rest of your body. The prettiest breasts will never be a mistake, they will always be a winner and that is why choosing the right size implants is the most important step in your breast augmentation surgery.
While most surgeons use the same handful of styles over and over again, Dr. Schwartz does not believe in “one size fits all.” He believes that all implant styles have a role and will take you through the process of the perfect style and size of implant for your lifestyle and aspirations. Whether they be saline or silicone gel. Smooth shell or textured. Round or teardrop shaped. Low, medium or high profile. Dr. Schwartz uses the full range of implant types and styles, carefully matching the implant characteristics to your individual needs and goals.
And unlike most other surgeons who bluntly tear open a space for the implant putting more emphasis on their time than your comfort, Dr. Schwartz uses a precise electrocautery technique that gently opens the implant pocket. This method may take a little longer in the operating room, but it is more accurate and results in less bleeding leading to a faster, easier recovery. In fact, Dr. Schwartz’ typical breast augmentation patient resumes her usual daily activities in 24 hours or less and can be back to work in three or four days. Most patients do not even bruise!
Because pretty breasts—not just pretty big—are what we are after. And that is the art of breast augmentation by Dr. Robert Schwartz.
