Breast Augmentation Using Saline Implants
2 Minute Read:
Dr. Linder explains the process of placing a 380cc saline implant during a primary breast augmentation. He will be using a Mentor saline high profile implant and filling it with sterile saline once implanted underneath the breast muscle into the pocket that he has already created.
Case Study #1
I was presented with a 23-year-old female who was looking to undergo a primary breast augmentation. During the consultation, she expressed that she wanted more enhanced cleavage and fullness to her shape. After discussing her goals, size, and shape, we agreed on scheduling a surgery date.
During the breast mammoplasty (augmentation), I made a periareolar incision along her lower areola and placed 400 cc high profile saline implants with a slight overfill. This type of implant creates spectacular cleavage with projection and fullness, especially around the parasternal angle (beside the sternum).
The post-op photo is now 3 weeks after surgery, and as you can see, the augmentation has achieved an enhanced cleavage and fullness.
Case Study #2
The female patient to the left came into my Beverly Hills office inquiring about breast augmentation. During the consultation, she expressed that her goal was to increase her breast fullness and size. After listening to her expectations, we selected for her primary augmentation 425 cc high profile saline breast implants (high profile implants are excellent for a little more projection).
During the augmentation surgery, I overfilled the right breast implant to 460 cc and the left to 470 cc to achieve symmetry.
The post-op photo is six weeks out, and she is happy with the size and projection.
Case Study #3
I was presented with a 22-year-old female who was looking to improve her volume and cleavage. After listening to her expectation and desires, we scheduled a primary augmentation surgery.
To achieve her goals, I selected high profile 330 cc saline implants. The incisions were created along the breast crease (inframammary technique) allowing me to create an optimal breast pocket. I placed the implants subpectoral, which involved using the dual plane technique: two-thirds under the muscle medially and one-third over the muscle laterally.
The post-op photo is 12 months out, and she is very happy with the overall results.
