By Dr. Michael Tantillo
This woman in her mid thirties from Boston came to my office to discuss breast augmentation after pregnancy. Her goals from breast augmentation included restoring her breast volume loss after pregnancy and filling her upper breast. She chose 400cc silicone gel filled implants placed under the muscle (dual plane) using an incision underneath the breast (inframammary). The implants used are 25cc above her fill volume. An incision around the areola would have allowed the areola diameter to be reduced (circumareolar mastopexy); however, this patient did not want an incision on her areola.
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.
