So we all know the feeling of wanting a specific hair cut or colour after spotting it on a celebrity or friend. Usually, the next step is bringing that photo in to your salon for your stylist to reproduce the same design on your head. However, it certainly doesn’t work that way with breast enhancements! (although many have already brought in their photo inspirations pre-operation during their consultations).

This idea of photo referencing doesn’t work in the realm of surgery for a plethora of reasons, one being that we can’t always decipher or make out the bra size simply from reviewing a picture. What someone thinks is a C could easily be a DD, and this in turn, makes it really hard to agree and communicate on specific dimensions with your surgeon based on these assumptions. That being said, there are exceptions to the rule! For example, if you have a similar build or body to the person you’re referencing in the photo, then you can expect resembling results after the surgery.

Photo referencing aside, the most essential part of your surgery is that it’s individual and personal to each client. Consultations are held before any procedure to ensure satisfaction and avoid any complications or undesirable outcomes. The variety in breast size, circumference or materials all contribute to the result of your enhancement. Everyone is different whether they want the surgery for corrective or cosmetic purposes, it’s crucial to realize that what looks right on Pamela Anderson won’t necessarily suit you.

So why bring in photos?  Photos do help Dr. Jugenburg better understand what you like and what you do not like about breasts.  Size, proportions, shape concepts can be better understood by visually representing what it is that you want.  So do bring in photos, but understand they are used to demonstrate what you like, not what may or may not be possible to create for you.

During your consultation with Dr. Jugenburg, you will have a chance to clarify what results you are looking for, and Dr. Jugenburg will be able to tell you what he can create for you and how it will be done.
