Pigeon Chest Deformity

The preoperative photo to the left indicate the patient has Pectus Carinatum Deformity. Pectus Carinatum is a congenital anomaly of the sternum (anomaly congenitally is often referred to as a pigeon chest).
I performed a breast augmentation to this 27 years old patient by placing subpectoral implants in the dual plane technique using 306cc moderate plus silicone gel implants. I encourage all patients to use a compression bra (Linder Bra) for six weeks postoperative in order to maintain the medial breast pocket shape.
The patient has done extraordinarily well as you can see by the before and after photo below.
