This patient in her late thirties from Boston’s South Shore came to my plastic surgery office to discuss post-partum aesthetic breast rejuvenation. We discussed her goals from surgery and her breast augmentation options. She wanted her breasts to look full with some roundness in the upper breast. She chose silicone gel filled implants, a volume 50cc above her estimated fill volume, an inframammary incision, and placement of the implants under the muscle. I used high profile (Natrelle style 20) implants; 400cc.
At the same surgery she also had liposuction to treat her outer thighs. She was bothered by the fullness in the “saddlebag” area. She was treated with traditional tumescent liposuction.
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.
