By Dr. Michael Tantillo
This 29-year-old woman from Quincy came to my office to discuss breast augmentation. She is an avid runner who works in the health care field as a physical therapist. She was interested in achieving a natural appearance to her breasts after her plastic surgery.
We discussed in detail the concept of breast fill volume – the volume that will maximally fill the breast tissue to give a smooth upper breast. Based on physical examination, I estimated her fill volume to be 275cc. She wished to maintain a smooth transition in the upper breast and thus choose a 275cc implant. She chose silicone gel-filled implants. The surgical procedure was a peri-areolar approach to placement of the Moderate Plus Profile 275cc breast implant beneath her chest wall muscle.
She had a rapid post operative recovery; my patients typically return to normal daily activities the day after surgery. Because I precisely create the pocket for the implant, I do not use drains or tight wraps after surgery. My patients are allowed to shower the day after surgery and encouraged to go out from the house the day after 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.
