Dr. Vijay Bindingnavele joined us on 3 News First Edition to talk about plastic surgery, specifically about breast augmentation. Optimizing the appearance of breasts are a very frequent reason for visit to the plastic surgeon. The first thing is to make sure that your plastic surgeon is board certified and a member of the American Board of Plastic Surgeons.

Then during a consultation the surgeon will determine the optimal procedure to get the results desired by the patient. These procedures can include a breast lift, reduction, implant placement and a combination of the above. Fat transfer to the breast can also be considered.

The above procedures all have benefits and risks and when done in combination, the risks are additive.
