Patients find it very difficult to decide where to go for plastic surgery. The prominence of advertising, experts on TV, websites and referrals from friends mean patients are often unsure how to tell the good from the bad from the brilliant.
With any element of our lives, it is clearly always going to be better if we go to an expert. Of course, all surgeons claim to be experts. But are they? The human body is an incredibly complex machine and understanding it takes many years of training, courses, re-education and research. After qualification for the prestigious FRCS (plast) surgeons can perform any number of cosmetic procedures. However, a very small number decide to focus very specifically on one area. Patrick Mallucci is one such surgeon. Mr Mallucci decided to focus his work , research and expertise on reconstructive and aesthetic breast work.
As part of this work, Mr Mallucci undertook an amazing piece of research. Mr Mallucci set out to find what people perceived as “The Perfect Breast”. Using feedback from a large group of people, men and women, a picture of the perfect breast was built. This is now known as the 45/55 principle in respect of the relationship between the volume of the breast in the upper/lower pole. This now gives Mr Mallucci a blueprint of the ideal outcome for his patients who want for example breast augmentation. Mr Mallucci believes a natural breast is the result most patients want and his work on the perfect breast has resonated with patients and surgeons all around the world. It was presented extensively on various continents and won awards on the international stage. It is work such as this which sets Mr Mallucci aside from general plastic surgeons who do not focus on specific areas of the body in such finite detail.
Mallucci London is now the new home for Mr Mallucci and The Perfect Breast. Mr Olivier Branford, the co-author of this ground breaking piece of research, is also based exclusively at Mallucci London. All the surgeons and practitioners at Mallucci London focus on their own specific area. Why go to a generalist when you can go for a specialist?
