Breast Augmentation: Patient 6

Before
Breast Augmentation: Patient 6

After
Breast Augmentation: Patient 6

This is a case of a petite young lady who always wanted to have larger breasts. She came to me for breast augmentation. We discussed different options including saline versus silicone breast options. My personal belief as a plastic surgeon is that silicone breast implants give a nicer result in the lady who has small breasts to begin with and is very lean as in this body type saline breast implants tend to look less natural and ripple more. Silicone requires more follow up with MRI to detect leaks 3 years after augmentation then every 2 years. This patient wanted a significant change in size.  The largest I could safely place without causing damage such as stretch marks were 400cc high profile implants.   This size limit varies from patient to patient based on breast tissue elasticity, chest wall width, base diameter of breast and several other factors which only can be determined on physical exam.  She is shown before and 5 weeks after silicone breast augmentation with Mentor high profile silicone gel implants and went from 30A to 30DD.
