This 24 year old female presented to Dr. Siamak Agha at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center with a request to undergo breast augmentation with silicone implants. The patient is a cup size A and wished to be a C cup. The patient also wanted to have round silicone implants. On examination, the patient was found to have breast asymmetry with the right breast slightly smaller than the left one. The right breast and the right nipple are also about 1 cm higher than the left breast. Furthermore, the patient's left mammary crease is slightly lower than the right side.
Dr. Agha offered 3 different incision approaches to the patient for implant insertion. These included (1) areolar incision, (2) mammary crease incision, and (3) arm pit incision. Given the fact that the patient has very small areola, Dr. Agha recommended options 2 and 3 to the patient.
The patient underwent a breast augmentation through inframammary crease incisions with high profile 375 cc silicone implants in a submuscular pocket. Patient recovered well after her surgery and ended up with a full C cup. Post-operative pictures are taken at 3 months after her breast augmentation surgery.
