Dr. Robert Rho: Reconstructive Surgeries Pose Complex Questions for Women

Although cosmetic surgery has existed in modern culture for decades, many patients and medical professionals remain undecided about the many issues associated with the procedures. For example, although many have pushed against breast augmentation procedures, others note that such procedures can have a positive effect on a woman's self-esteem. A recent article from ABC News highlights this particular issue among women who receive mastectomies in order to treat breast cancer. It explains that although some women choose to receive breast reconstruction surgery at the same time of their mastectomies, many enter the procedure without fully knowing what the results may look like. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Robert Rho notes that while each patient may display concerns over the procedure, those who pursue it often experience a boost in self-confidence.

According to the article, Kim Sport, a woman who pursued both procedures feels comfortable displaying her result, in person, to showcase the benefits that the reconstructive surgery can offer. Although Sport remains happy with her results, she states, "I felt it was very, very important to share that experience with other women because I didnʼt want them just to have to look at a photo."

The article cites a recent survey conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It states, "Eighty-nine percent of women say they would rather see what reconstruction results might look like before making any treatment decisions. The problem is, not only are some women never shown surgery results, but seven out of ten are not fully informed about their reconstructive options." Dr. Robert Rho responds by noting that no matter what the procedure, patients should always seek out as much information as they need before they make the decision.

Dr. Robert Rho, who is a leading professional in the art of labiaplasty, notes that the feelings associated with breast reconstruction are often similar to those who pursue vaginal reconstruction. Rho explains that while many have different reasons for pursuing these options, they all have the desire to be comfortable with their bodies. Dr. Robert Rho explains, "Labiaplasty can produce beautiful looking female genitalia that can greatly improve a woman's self-esteem." He concludes that breast reconstruction can often offer the same advantages to patients; however, it is essential that a patient find a trusted and qualified surgeon who is willing to explore all options and openly discuss results.
