By Dr. Michael Tantillo
This woman in her late thirties from Rhode Island came to my office to discuss breast augmentation. Her goals from breast augmentation included correcting breast deflation she noticed after pregnancy and nursing. In order to achieve her goals I recommended contour (teardrop shaped) implants and an implant volume near her fill volume of 325cc. 310cc moderate profile textured contour silicone implants were placed under the muscle through an inframammary incision. Contour implants are textured so that they do not rotate; textured implants also have a lower risk of capsular contracture than smooth implants. Note that she elected to not correct the nipple height asymmetry with a mastopexy.
The surgery takes about an hour, and patients are ready to go home shortly after the surgery is finished. I do not use drains of tight wraps and patients often do not require narcotic pain medication. Patients generally resume normal activities within one or two days following surgery.
If you are interested in breast augmentation that will reliably give you the aesthetic result you wish with minimal post operative pain and recovery time, please contact my office by phone at 617.505.6818 or click request a consultation. You and I will discuss and define your goals from surgery so that you will make the best decisions for yourself. As part of our consultation we can use three dimensional photography which allows us to simulate the look of the breasts after surgery as one tool to help in your decision making process.
