This woman in her late twenties from the North Shore came to my office to discuss breast augmentation. She has not had children. Her goals from surgery included achieving a natural, teardrop shape to the upper breast while enhancing her breast size. As we discussed her natural asymmetries, she ultimately decided to have me place a slightly larger implant in the left breast. She choose to have silicone gel filled implants placed under the muscle (dual plane) using an incision beneath the breast (inframammary). A 325cc mid range profile implant was used on the right and a 350cc mid range profile implant was used on the left. These implants are slightly less than the fill volume which I estimated to be 375cc.
The surgery takes about an hour, and patients are ready to go home shortly after the surgery is finished. I do not use drains of tight wraps and patients often do not require narcotic pain medication. Patients generally resume normal activities within one or two days following surgery.
If you are interested in breast augmentation that will reliably give you the aesthetic result you wish with minimal post operative pain and recovery time, please contact my office by phone at 617.505.6818 or click request a consultation. You and I will discuss and define your goals from surgery so that you will make the best decisions for yourself. As part of our consultation we can use three dimensional photography which allows us to simulate the look of the breasts after surgery as one tool to help in your decision making process.
