The typical breast augmentation patient if you look across the country is white, mid-thirties, happily married, two children, wants to look better in a swimsuit, which is kind of surprising because most people do not have that image, but most of the people that I see say that they would like to look better in a swimsuit or sundress and feel more feminine. They feel like they are disproportionately small. Most are successful, athletic, outgoing people who say I just would like to do this for myself. I would like to look a little better in clothes, particularly in the summertime I would like to look a little better in a swimsuit. So, those are the typical patients that I see. We see women in their early twenties. I think the oldest patient that I have ever done this procedure on was 72-year-old but full of life and very appreciative and very realistic and it was a fun thing to do because she was such an unusual patient. But, it has more to do with the patient’s expectations. If I see someone who I think is unrealistic or who wants to be very large or go work as an exotic dancer, I usually send them to another doctor’s office because I do not feel comfortable doing that. Most of our patient’s want to look balanced and proportioned with sort of classic beauty which is really what I enjoy doing, so that is the direction we go with most of our breast augmentation patients.
