Breast Augmentation, 350cc implant for a petite woman in Tucson, Az

Procedure Details

This is a 22 year old woman, that was a competitive athlete,from Tucson, Arizona that came to Rao Plastic Surgery to discuss options for a breast augmentation. She wore an A cup bra and was looking to be a full C cup. During our initial consultation her exam I did not note any masses or abnormalities of her breast. She tried on various implant sizers and liked the appearance of the 350 cc implant. I explained that because of the width of her breast that we would use a high profile implant which would allow for her to have the size implant she desired without the breast implant being too wide. I explained that I use an inframammary incision and that I would place her implant behind the muscle. I explained that there are several advantages to placing the implants behind the muscle including less chance of visible rippling and wrinkling of the implant and decreased risk of capsular contracture. I explained because of her petite build that she does not have enough tissue to camouflage the implant. Also, during our discussion we discussed if having breast implants would affect her ability to compete athletically. I explained that while her implants are under the muscle, she would not lose any strength as a result of surgery. She had 350 cc smooth round high profile Mentor Memory Gel implants place in a submuscular pocket. After six weeks she was able to resume competing. She is now six months out from her breast augmentation and loves her results.
