The patient to the right is a 24-year-old female who was looking to have a primary breast augmentation. During her consultation, she explained that her desire was to increase the fullness and size of her breasts. After listening to her goals, we agreed to use Allergan’s 350 cc high-profile saline breast implants. These implants give an increase anterior/posterior projection and have reduced lateral width or diameter.
During her breast augmentation surgery, we took the 350 cc implants and overfilled them to 370 cc to achieve the right fullness and size.
The postop photo is six weeks out, and she is happy with the size and AP projection.

The patient to the left came into my Beverly Hills office looking to correct a previous augmentation. During her examination, it was apparent that she had capsular contracture (hardening of the breast) due to scar tissue around the implants. After listening to her goals, we scheduled a breast revision surgery.
Treatment of capsular contracture involves multiple steps to decrease the chance of recurrence. First, I remove the current implants and then perform a complete capsulectomy (removal of all the scar tissue). I then put a dermal mesh sling around the right implant to help prevent the risk of scarring again. I replaced the old implants with 560 cc SRX extra-full profile silicone implants, which have a smooth shell surface and will provide the patient with a fuller, rounder look.
The post-op photo to the right is now four weeks out. As you can see, her breasts are balanced (symmetrical), and she has a nice fullness.

Three months ago, I evaluated a woman who was looking to have a breast augmentation. She had a condition called pectus excavatum, which is an abnormal formation in the chest or breast that gives it a caved-in appearance. During her primary augmentation, we used the Natrelle INSPIRA® SCX extra-full profile, highly cohesive silicone breast implants. These implants combine the benefits of the traditional gummy bear implants with an extra-high profile and upper pole fullness.
The patient below is now three months post-op, and, as you can see, she has a nice profile and fullness.

Primary Augmentation 3 Month Post-Op
A few days ago on January 29, 2017, New York Times posted an article by Roni Caryn Rabin titled After Mastectomies, an Unexpected Blow: Numb New Breasts. The article presents a few patients’ stories about having mastectomies and the subsequent loss of sensations in their breasts. As the article states, “While doctors agree on the need for a mastectomy procedure that spares nerves, they note that the goal of the surgery is to make sure the cancer is gone.”
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I believe it is important to share these types of articles so patients can be better informed as they look toward breast reconstructive options.
