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 27 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 under-developed breast glands bilaterally. The surgical advice was to
bilaterally place partial sub muscular, smooth wall, silicone gel implants to enhance appearance, as well as a peri-areolar lift to help improve nipple areola complex positioning.
Surgery: Smooth wall, high profile, silicone gel implants, fill volume of 400 cc bilaterally with peri-areolar breast lift “mastopexy”.
