Breast Augmentation Patient # 6


Breast Augmentation


34 yo woman, 5’10” tall, 160 pounds. This woman had an uncomplicated bilateral breast augmentation, through an inframammary fold approach, with McGhan style 468 textured, contoured 380cc breast implants, filled to 420cc. She experienced excessive right breast implant descent about five months later. One year later her initial surgeon placed internal sutures to raise the right inframammary fold about 1 cm; she noted some improvement but still felt there was a lack of inferior support for the right implant. In addition, she remained unhappy with the persistent breast asymmetry - the breasts were different shapes and there was more fullness in the upper pole of the left breast. Her bra size was a 36D-cup following her augmentation and revision, but she wished her breasts were a bit larger. Two years after her initial augmentation she sought to address her persistent dissatisfaction. Seven week post-operative photographs show the result after an inframammary approach for removal of both implants, subtotal capsulectomies with additional capsulotomies, reconstruction of the right inframammary fold with internal sutures, and bilateral sub-pectoral breast augmentation with McGhan style 68 smooth, round, moderate-profile (450cc) saline breast implants filled to 480cc. Her post-operative bra size is a fuller 36D-cup, and she is happy with her improved symmetry. *
