Breast Augmentation

Before And After Photos

This is a 20 year old female who is 5’7″ and 120 pounds interested in a breast augmentation. Her pre-operative anatomy is perfect for an enhancement-her chest and breasts are very symmetrical, she has no sag to her breasts, she has firm, thick skin and she has a great attitude.

She is seen here after a bilateral breast augmentation with 250cc smooth walled silicone implants of moderate profile placed under the muscle through an incision at the bottom of the breast.

She is quite pleased with her result. I asked her what the single most important benefit of the procedure was and she told me that it made her feel more like a woman and not a young girl. She looks better in clothes and a bathing suit fits a lot better now.

Her case represents a “classic” augmentation-a moderate sized implant used in a patient with ideal anatomy. Most patients aren’t like her in that they have breast asymmetries, changes in the breasts over time and with childbirth, weight changes and asymmetries in the ribs underlying the breasts.

We tend not to focus on the predictable, beautiful results of a modern breast enhancement. It seems that the unusual or bizarre results make the headlines. When you consider that over 300,000 breast augmentations are performed every year, you can imagine lots of happy women when they had it done right.
