Breast Augmentation in San Francisco vs. LA
Even seemingly minor decisions, like in which city you get your breast augmentation, can impact your final results. This is why we recommend seeking out a board-certified plastic surgeon you trust to help guide you through the decision-making process of breast augmentation.
I know what you’re thinking, “there are certified plastic surgeons in both cities.” That’s true, which is why you need to consider culture, not necessarily longitude and latitude. It’s the culture and style that impacts a surgeon’s aesthetic eye, and the cultural differences between Los Angeles and San Francisco are quite dramatic.
In this article, we’ll explore how cultural differences could impact the look and feel of your breast augmentation results.
Los Angeles and Breast Augmentations
What do you think of when you think of sunny LA?
Of course, there’s the glitz and glamor of Hollywood, with the beautiful actors and actresses who always seem perfect.
You may also have images of tan and toned women in bikini’s rollerblading along the beach.
The truth is, Los Angeles is the city of the stars, and people who dream of being a star.
Getting noticed is part of the LA vibe. Los Angeles plastic surgeons tend to be more flashy than surgeons in other parts of the country. Just visit their offices for a consultation, a good many of them are geared toward over-the-top results, in some cases they can even be described as gaudy. Looking a little “overdone” can actually be the goal in Los Angeles.
This culture and mindset is especially prevalent in the breast augmentation results they tend to deliver.
San Francisco and Breast Augmentations
The culture of San Francisco is much different.
Where LA is about glitz, San Francisco is more understated. The culture of San Francisco tends to be more substantive, sophisticated, and tasteful.
Less flash, more elegance.
San Francisco plastic surgeons generally prefer a more natural aesthetic, helping their patients look very good, but in a tasteful, natural way.
Why These Differences Matter
The honest truth is, some patients will prefer the Los Angeles style of plastic surgery. It’s flashy, it gets attention, and in most cases, the results are dramatic and beautiful. The fact that the results will look a little fake isn’t problem for some, and others even prefer the overdone look.
Think of stars like the Kardashians, who are drop-dead gorgeous, but obviously overdone. They are examples of the quintessential Los Angeles look.
On the other hand, compare that look with the more elegant Cate Blanchett.
Blanchett is equally as beautiful but decidedly more natural and understated.
Now, of course, we aren’t making the claim you can’t get a natural-looking breast augmentation in Los Angeles. We also aren’t making the claim that a San Francisco plastic surgeon won’t deliver the “overdone” look for you either.
There are obviously exceptions to this cultural norm in both cities.
The point we are making is to be mindful of these cultural differences when choosing where to have your breast augmentation performed. Regardless of the look you prefer, the culture and aesthetic preferences of your plastic surgeon will impact your results.
