What Dr. Bucko Considers the Ideal Breast

Dr. Bucko is a San Diego plastic surgeon who is well known for a concept he refers to as the “ideal breast.” The ideal breast varies by woman and specifically refers to the breast size and shape that makes her feel the best.

Individual results may vary

Dr. Bucko collaborates with each patient and discusses her concerns, lifestyle, goals and other relevant factors. Then, the patient is sent home with an Enhance sizing kit containing a special bra with various implant inserts to try out under her clothes for two weeks. She is able to “test drive” different sizes to find the ideal implant that best meets her aesthetic goals and lifestyle needs. With the chance to preview the outcomes, most patients are very satisfied with the long-term results.

More about Breast Augmentation in San Diego

Breast Implant Surgery San DiegoLa Jolla plastic surgeon, Dr. Bucko has performed thousands of breast augmentation procedures in San Diego with great success. He is trained in the most advanced surgical techniques to give patients the customized results they desire. In addition to simply increasing the size of the breasts, he is also able to lift the breasts into a more desirable, youthful looking position, provide fullness in the upper portion of the breast and improve the appearance of the nipples, if needed. Dr. Bucko has extensive experience with the newer form-stable “Gummy Bear” implants. These implants can often give a more natural look to the upper breast shape or create a more lifted look than the traditional implants.

A breast augmentation operation involves placing silicone implants in front of or behind the chest muscle (depending on the amount of existing breast tissue). Implants are inserted through an incision around the nipple or in the breast crease. They may be round or teardrop shaped, according to the patient’s desired result.

Individual results may vary

After a swift recovery, the breasts look larger and fuller. Typically, round implants provide more fullness on top of the breast, giving the breasts a “push-up bra” look that many women covet. On the other hand, teardrop-shaped implants have a gently sloping curve that closely mimics a natural breast shape. Patients are encouraged to discuss their personal breast shape preference with Dr. Bucko during the pre-operative planning stage, so he can ensure the chosen implants provide the desired results.

Individual results may vary

Breast augmentation can be combined with breast lift techniques to reposition sagging breasts higher on the chest wall. This combination is popular in mommy makeover treatment plans designed to address pregnancy and breastfeeding-related problems.
