Breast Augmentation Case Study 135
This lady has moderate height, moderate projected anatomical breast implants placed above the muscle. She wished to achieve the ideal aesthetic shape with 55% of the volume of the breast being in the lower pole. Where the breast footprint sits at a reasonable height moderate height implants are a good choice. This lady also was very athletic and following discussion about the pros and cons of placing the implants above and under the muscle opted to have anatomical implants placed above the muscle. Her chest wall angled outwards and with increased muscle bulk there is a risk of the implants moving towards the armpit if placed under. Although implants above do not disrupt the muscle and can be placed more in the midline the downside is that the top of the implant can become more palpable over time. The current cohesive gel implants have been developed to reduce this phenomenon. Patients need to be taken through the pros and cons as in this case both round / anatomical / above / under are all options.
Bio dimensionally breast implants should fit the width of the chest wall although the width, height and projection can all be altered slightly to provide differing volumes and results. Consulting with a plastic surgeon with experience of using anatomical implants and 3D technology is in Mr Ross’s opinion essential in being empowered to proceed.
When considering breast augmentation with breast implants it is important to consider all the various breast rejuvenation techniques which include breast lift with fat/implants, breast lift alone and the use of autologous fat transfer.
At a consultation, it is important to run through all the pros and cons and the various options of breast rejuvenation surgery so that you can be empowered to proceed. Mr Ross will show you various preoperative and postoperative results so that you can understand what can be achieved and what is to be expected. Mr Ross uses bio dimensional planning, 3D software and virtual reality to help you through your journey and there is no limit to the number of consultations required prior to surgery.
