By Dr. Michael Tantillo
This 24-year-old woman came to my office to discuss cosmetic surgery. Having recently finished school, she is a very active young woman new to the workplace. She is interested in a breast augmentation that will give her full breasts with a natural but not tight round appearance of the upper portion of the breasts.
During our plastic surgery consultation, we discussed the concept that there is a natural volume which will fill each patient’s breasts fully; above this volume the upper portion of the breast becomes more round and below this volume the upper breast is inwardly curved. I estimated this patient’s fill volume to be 275cc, and this is the implant size she selected. At surgery, Moderate Plus Profile 275cc silicone gel filled implants were placed beneath the muscle through a peri-areolar incision.
Her recovery from surgery was smooth; my patients typically return to normal daily activities the day after surgery. Because I create the implant pocket with surgical precision rather than pulling and tearing the muscle, 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.
