Breast Augmentation: Patient 71

Breast Augmentation: Patient 71

Breast Augmentation: Patient 71

This case demonstrates several issues which I believe are important for the prospective patient to understand. Almost all ladies have some degree of breast asymmetry. Sometimes it is caused by two very nicely shaped breasts of simply different sizes. Sometimes the breasts are very differently shaped combined with different sizes. Sometimes the asymmetry of the breast is due to the chest wall and ribcage having significant asymmetry. This can be due to the ribs having different shape from side to side, it can be due to a sternum (breast-bone) that is more or less developed/prominent than usual. Sometimes the chest wall asymmetry is due to scoliosis or curvatures in the spine. Due to these many different causes there are many different approaches to handling the asymmetry. Sometimes differently sized implants are used. Sometimes a breast lift is needed either on one side or both sides in order to reshape the breast tissue. Sometimes it is best to accept some asymmetries. In this case the major asymmetry which you can see in the photos is that the left breast (her left looking down from her perspective) has less fullness to begin with in the lower inner quadrant. This is due to a significant asymmetry in the ribcage. It is very difficult to correct this type of asymmetry. In this case we accepted the asymmetry and did nothing to correct it which is why it is present both in the preoperative and postoperative photos after placement of 400cc implants.
