Before & Afters - Breast Implants (Augmentation)
This is a very slender, statuesque female who weighs about 100lbs. Her preoperative breast size was a 32A. She had never been pregnant and her breasts have always been the present size since adolescence. She wanted to be a C with moderate upper pole fullness. She tried numerous trial implants in the office and ultimately settled on a 300cc implant. This size nicely corresponded with the width of her breasts and ultimately 295cc implants were used in the operating room. This gave her nice projection and the upper pole fill that she desired. Her breasts remain sensate and the implants were soft and mobile. The creases are sharp and symmetry was excellent. She got a very nice result and looks about as you could ask for with implant surgery.

This is a 25YO young female from the Florida area. She desired some cosmetic improvement of her breasts. She has some drooping of the nipple areola complex with asymmetry of the position of the breasts on the chest wall. Also she does not have any fullness in the lower pole of her breasts.
These type breasts are very difficult to do an augmentation and maintain good results. A surgeon must have years of experience in order to understood the pitfalls in trying to enlarge these type breasts.
Post operative views show significant improvement of these breasts. Now the breasts have a normal shape and the nipples are in good position relative to the breast tissue.

This is a pre and post-op pictures on a 42YO female here for consideration for a breast augmentation. She is 5’4” tall and weighs 110lbs. She is a 32A. She has had one pregnancy with no significant change in her breast size. Her breast tissue was firm and ropey but there was a good bit of stretch ability in the tissues. She tried the various sizes here in the office and liked something in the 400cc range. She wanted her breasts full with a lot of upper pole cleavage. Because of her very thin nature and the stretchiness of her skin, we reduced the implant size goal somewhat. She was carried to the operating room and underwent augmentation via inframammary approach. The high 300-low 400cc sizers were clearly too large and you could see the outline of the implant in the upper poles. We ultimately settled on 345cc on both sides. This gave her nicely sized breasts for her frame and moderate fullness in the upper poles. She has maintained sensation in the nipple areolar complexes. She is extremely pleased with the results of her surgery.

She wishes her breasts enlarged to a large C/small D with moderate upper pole fullness (cleavage). In the office on examination she tried the trials that we had available and wished for an implant in the 350cc range. This gave her the projection she wanted to see. We were not sure if that would provide the cleavage. In the operating room, the various trails were placed and she was sat upright to ascertain if the implant would give the moderate upper pole fullness. We ultimately used 375cc implants. I put a little larger one in on the left as compared to the right. She has gotten a very nice result. She has maintained nipple sensation. The breasts are soft and displace well.
