Primary Breast Augmentation

The patient below was requesting a primary breast augmentation procedure. The patient also wanted to have a natural-appearing breasts and after listening to her expectation we selected  320 cc high profile saline implants.   The periareolar incision site was performed and the implants were placed using the dual plane technique.

Her breasts appear to be quite natural and the patient is extraordinarily happy with the shape, size and appearance of her breasts.

High Profile Breast Implants

This patient case example shows a  slight condition called pectus excavatum (sunken chest)  a common congenital deformity of the anterior wall of the chest, in which several rib and the sternum grow abnormally. The patient desired to have natural-appearing breasts which was performed with 425 cc  high profile saline implants.  High profile saline implants are very useful for women who desire increased fullness without a wider diameter implant which can look quite natural.  The periareolar incision site was performed and the implants were placed using the dual plane technique.

The before and after photo below shows her result (after being 6 weeks post op) and the patient wearing one of my SexyShapeWear sports bras (I designed the SexyShapeWear to allow ultimate compression, comfort and perfect fit for all sporting needs and fitness training workouts).



Augmentation Mammoplasty

The patient below was requesting a breast augmentation, also known as a augmentation mammoplasty. She came to my Beverly Hills practice to enhance her breast size, to increase her fullness and appearance. Her goal was to have more confidence  and well-proportioned breast.

After listening to her desires, we selected 320 cc moderate plus saline breast implants for the breast augmentation procedure. A periareolar incision was performed and the implants were placed using the dual plane technique. Postoperative photograph from the frontal view show excellent positioning with well-healed scars along the periareolar and excellent symmetry.

Ruptured Silicone Gel Textured Implant

This is an excellent example of a reconstructive patient with ruptured silicone gel textured implants and an isolated capsule from the parenchyma of the breast. This is a 72-year-old Russian patient presenting from the USSR with specifically severe ruptured silicone Baker IV capsular contracture and a double-bubble breast deformity.

Upon entering into the breast pocket, the entire implant was notably isolated with the capsule and was detached from the parenchyma of the breast tissue. Notice the white capsule attached to the silicone gel implant. This is more likely in textured silicone cases. Why there was no longer contiguity of the capsule with the breast tissue is unknown. In any case, this is an interesting case of a free-floating silicone textured implant with the capsule completely isolated freely and mobile in the breast pocket. Capsules are made out of three components. Notice the white glistening of the capsules made out of high collagen levels, fibroblastic tissues and blood vessels. This extremely thick capsule was most notably interesting because of its contiguity with the silicone implant and its free-floating nature within the pocket.
