KINSTON, NC--(Marketwire - Dec 11, 2012) - Dr. Richard Cummings, a plastic surgeon in North Carolina, understands the cultural correlation between appearance and self-esteem. He works to help breast augmentation patients achieve a look with which they feel comfortable and confident. At Cummings Plastic Surgery, his private practice, breast augmentation and other plastic surgery procedures are tailored to meet each individual patient's needs and goals.
Dr. Cummings has noticed that some patients with smaller breasts experience a lower level of self-confidence. He believes breast augmentation can be transformative for a woman's self-esteem. His patients have said that after surgery, they now look like the women they have felt like inside.
Dr. Cummings believes the transformation provided by breast augmentation surgery is a personal one, and works to educate patients so they may make the best choices possible in regard to the sizing and material of the implant. He knows there is no one technique or breast implant that is best for all women, and tailors each procedure to achieve unique results for the individual patient.
Each year, Dr. Cummings performs hundreds of successful breast augmentation procedures. Using the most advanced techniques available, he places implants behind the chest muscle of the patient for natural-looking breasts and cleavage. He performs the procedure through a tiny incision, which is hidden on the undersurface of the breast.
During consultations at Cummings Plastic Surgery, Dr. Cummings spends a good deal of time talking with patients to articulate their personal goals. He then discusses with each North Carolina plastic surgery patient the different implant types (silicone vs. saline) and styles available. Additionally, Dr. Cummings discusses the results each implant type and style will yield to provide the patient with realistic expectations for their surgical outcome.
