This 45-year-old petite woman wore a size 32A bra. She is 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 98 pounds. She wanted to learn about her options for Orange County breast augmentation, so she looked for an experienced plastic surgeon and chose Dr. Andrew Smith.
During her consultation, Dr. Smith talked with her to ensure that her goals were realistic, and he evaluated her health. He takes these precautions with each patient to make sure the procedure desired is appropriate. In this case, Dr. Smith agreed with the woman that breast augmentation could provide her with the enhanced figure she sought. They discussed and agreed upon the best options for the woman’s goals, including the breast shape, size and implant type.
Since the FDA approved silicone gel breast implants, Orange County women increasingly are selecting that option. After discussing both silicone and saline implants with Dr. Smith, this woman decided on semi-solid silicone gel implants.
During the procedure, Dr. Smith placed 300 cc silicone implants under her chest muscles. Known as submuscular placement, this was desirable for this patient because it would result in a more natural-looking chest contour. Based on his discussion with the woman, he selected a round implant shape.
After she had healed, the woman returned for her “after” photos. Now wearing a C-cup bra, the patient is pleased with the results of her breast surgery. Her beautifully full, round breasts allow her new freedom in wardrobe choices, and her augmentation goals have been achieved.
