This is a 37 year old woman was considering plastic surgery and came to my practice with complaints of deflated appearing breasts after childbirth. The patient wanted to have fuller, perkier breasts and was very concerned with maintaining a natural look.
I recommended a combination of silicone breast implants placed under the muscle with a circumareolar mastopexy (around the areola tightening) in order to achieve the most aesthetic, natural appearing breasts. I also recommended liposuction in the armpit / bra fat areas to further help with contouring of the breasts.
In the operating room, I placed Mentor smooth round 350cc moderate-plus profile cohesive silicone-gel implants through the areolas and under the chest muscles. I also tightened the breast tissue and raised the areolas by performing a circumareolar mastopexy. I then used power-assisted liposuction to remove 25cc's of fat from each bra fat area.
Following her plastic surgery procedure, the patient did very well and was very happy with her perky, natural appearing breasts.
