By Dr. Michael Tantillo
This woman, age 32, from Rhode Island came to my office to discuss breast augmentation. She is an active mother of two children. She would like to be full in the upper portion of her breasts after her breast augmentation procedure.
During our consultation, we discussed breast fill volume which is the amount of volume necessary to fill the breasts to a smooth upper portion of the breasts. Because she wanted to be round in the upper breast after her breast augmentation, I recommended that she choose an implant larger than her breast fill volume. I estimated her breast fill volume to be 240cc and so she chose breast implants in the low 300ccs. She had a slight breast size asymmetry pre-operatively, so I filled the right implant with 330cc of saline and the left implant with 310cc of saline. The implants were placed beneath the muscle through an incision on the bottom of the breast.
She had a rapid post operative recovery; my patients typically return to normal daily activities the day after surgery. Because I precisely create the pocket for the implant, I do not use drains or tight wraps after surgery. My patients are allowed to shower the day after surgery and are encouraged to go out of the house the day after 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.
