Breast Augmentation

Before And After Photos


This is a 23 year old female, 5’5″ and 143 pounds who desired a breast augmentation. As you can see from her pre-operative photos, she had small, narrow and laterally displaced breasts. She definitely liked the larger implant sizers that we tried on during her consultation. The problem I had with larger implants is that I was concerned about lateral movement of the implants over time as her breasts are naturally lateral, and the implants have to go behind her breasts. If she does not wear a very supportive bra that keeps them “up front”, there will be a good chance they will settle to the sides.

She is seen here about five months after her breast augmentation with 375cc high profile silicone implants placed beneath the muscle through an incision below the breast. Her result is quite nice overall. You can certainly tell that she is pleased.

Here are a few of her comments:

  1. When I go to the gym I no longer need to wear two bras-a regular padded bra below a sports bra. Now I wear as little as possible!
  2. I no longer need to worry about tops. I wear whatever I want.
  3. My breasts are a great distraction from my other problem areas.
  4. My posture is a lot better-I keep my shoulders back because I am proud.
  5. Swimsuit problem issues are a thing of the past for sure!

From my perspective, I think it is impressive how the narrow appearance of her breasts have been corrected with the implants. I also have included photos above and a video below of her moving her breasts to the middle and showing impressive cleavage.

If you peek at her pre operating photos, she has an almost 7 inch gap between her breasts. Cleavage can be made my massaging and molding your breasts post operatively (move them to the middle). This expands the muscle and implant pocket which results in cleavage. You never want your surgeon to cut the muscle along the midline to make immediate room right after surgery. This is a not the way to make cleavage.
