By Dr. Michael Tantillo
This woman in her early thirties from Boston came to my office to discuss breast enhancement surgery. Her goals from breast augmentation included achieving modest fullness in the upper breast while enhancing her breast size. She chose textured silicone gel filled implants placed under the muscle (dual plane) using an incision beneath the breast (inframammary). The texturing of the implants has been associated with a decrease in the incidence of capsular contracture. The 325cc high profile implants used are slightly above her fill volume which I estimated to be 275cc.
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 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.
