Breast Augmentation

Before And After Photos

This patient, who is 5’6″ tall and 108 pounds, complained that her breasts “became flat after having kids.” She used to have small but perky breasts and now they are flat and deflated. She is seen here five years after a saline breast augmentation with 350cc smooth walled implants placed through an incision around the lower half of the areola and beneath the muscle.

One can clearly see an obvious improvement. The deflation is certainly gone and the shape is much better (she actually has a shape!). This implant size is larger than would be ideal in her case because she is so small, but she clearly has done well over the years. There is no visible rippling of the implant and the implants are sitting where they need to be and have not displaced downwards or off to the side. She admits to wearing a very supportive bra as recommended. The scar around the areola has healed relatively well. The larger the implant relative to the size of your breast, the more likely you will experience complications such as rippling and implant displacement. Despite all the precautionary information that I provide my patients it just seems that some patients do better with their augmentations than others (this is probably related to their better tissue elasticity). Sometimes it’s just better to be lucky.

In the patients own words: “I am extremely pleased with the results. I was very uncomfortable when I was undressed, particularly in front of my partner. I love how I look with any outfit I’m wearing…I definitely have more confidence, I even took my bikini top off on the Barcelona beach!”
