The article is stating that if the patient is awake, than she will be able to inform the surgeon if the implants are the desired size. I have issues with this, as size should be confirmed and agreed upon by both parties prior to any incisions being made. I also do not like this practice as other factors must be accounted for, like swelling.
Seems dangerous and unethical to me.
