An 18 yo college student whose breasts never developed. She chose to have breast augmentation after high school graduation and before going off to college. After reviewing the pros and cons of silicone gel vs saline implants, she elected for the off label use of silicone gel implants. She is shown before and again, 2 years after bilateral partial subpectoral placement of smooth round moderate profile plus silicone gel implants placed through an inframammary incision. She is 5’6” and 152 lbs, and is thrilled to have a natural and proportional appearance.
A petite 24 yo who describes herself as a 34 A cup and wanted to be fuller but still natural in appearance. She is 5 ‘ ¼ “ and 112 lbs. Based on careful measurements, including the width of her breast and the nipple to breast fold distance on gentle stretch the largest implant that could be used is a 250 CC implant without giving her an overly unnatural look. She is shown before and again, 10 weeks after a bilateral partial subpectoral placement of smooth round silicone gel 250 cc moderate profile plus implants through an inframammary ( at the breast fold) incision. The breasts will continue to soften in appearance over the next few months as the breast tissues gently stretch to accommodate her implants and will appear even more natural with time.
A petite mother of 2 in her mid 40’s who describes herself as a 32-34 A. She would like to be able to fill our her clothes and bathing suits without padding, but wishes to have a natural look.
She is shown before and again, 4 months after partial subpectoral placement of 250 cc round smooth moderate profile plus silicone gel implants, placed through an infra mammary ( at the breast fold) incision. She is 5’3” and 106 lbs. Based on her measurements, this is the largest implant that can be used without an implant “look” which we would see if the implant is significantly wider than the width of her breast. Her nipple to fold distance on stretch is 7 cm on the right and 7.5 cm on the left. Formulas suggest that an implant base of 11 cm would be perfect on her right and she could go as wide as 11.5 cm base width on her left, without getting significant and unnatural appearing fullness in the upper breast. Her chosen implant has a base width of 11.3 cm. So using her measurements and wishes, we are able to arrive at just the right implant size for her tissues and her wishes.
