Dr. Laurie A. Casas Quoted in WebMD Feature Article

Dr. Casas is quoted in a WebMD Feature discussing “How Will Breast Implants Change Your Life?” This feature discusses the life changing effects of breast implants, realistic surgical expectations and different reasons patients seek-out breast procedures.

“They truly feel they have a deformity,” Casas tells WebMD. “They don’t feel they have a normal body part. It’s a body image issue, not a self-esteem issue. They want that body part to look more normal, to look better in clothes and bathing suits.”

The journey potential patients undertake with this surgery can be a painful and emotional one. Doctors are often pre-screening their patients to evaluate their mental health, emotional state and physical health to better determine if the surgery is right for them. Often times doctors will stay away from treating patients who are going thru major life changes, have unrealistic expectations or show signs of poor self-esteem and body image. Dr. Casas is a firm believer in evaluating whether her patients are in the right state of mind to undergo a breast procedure.

“We stand them in front of the mirror. What do you see? They have to be able to see the real person, not who they think they are. If there are signs of body dysmorphic disorder, they need a true psychiatric evaluation and psychiatric support.”
