Breast Augmentation also known as mammaplasty augmentation utilizes the insertion of an implant to help improve breast symmetry, volume, and appearance. There are two types of implants used: silicone gel and saline.
Case: This patient is a 40 year old female who presented desiring aesthetic enhancement of her breasts bilaterally. After a thorough evaluation and physical examination, it was my opinion that she presented with a volume loss of her breast glands bilaterally following pregnancy and breast feeding. My recommendation was to bilaterally place partial sub-muscular, smooth wall, silicone gel implants to enhance appearance.
Surgery: Smooth wall, high profile, silicone gel implants with a fill volume of 325 cc bilaterally were utilized.
