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.
