This 26-year-old woman was frustrated with the contour of her breasts and decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. Andrew Smith to discuss her options. He explained various breast augmentation techniques that would enhance the size and shape of her breasts in accordance with her goals for her appearance. After weighing the benefits of a few different implant types, sizes, and surgical approaches she decided on a breast augmentation procedure using silicone implants in Orange County with Dr. Smith.
Before any breast augmentation, or “augmentation mammaplasty,” Dr. Smith will work with you to understand your goals so that together you can determine the implant shape and size that would be most suitable for your figure. Implants are placed either under or above the chest muscle, depending on the patient’s desired breast shape and individual body characteristics. This patient decided on silicone implants because they look, feel, and move more like natural breast tissue, and in her procedure Dr. Smith used an incision method that they had both agreed would most appropriately camouflage any scarring.
This patient’s surgery has clearly supplemented her breasts, most noticeably in her profile-view post-operative photos. Her breasts now appear suppler and fuller as well as more elevated. Immediately after surgery patients will wear bandages to ensure good healing and limit any discomfort. Mild swelling is not uncommon and will subside gradually, allowing the breasts to “settle” in a natural position. This woman is very satisfied with her enhancements and will continue to see her results develop as the healing process continues.
