Patient: 431 Breast Augmentation
This 37-year-old woman came to the office of Dr. David Sayah with concerns about her small breasts. After having three children the patient felt that her breasts had gradually gotten smaller and more involuted with each pregnancy. She hoped that a breast augmentation would restore the fullness to her breasts and help restore the size and shape she enjoyed before having children. She was an A cup but felt that her ideal size after surgery would be a B cup. She wanted the fullness restored to her breasts but emphasized that she did not want large breasts.
During her consultation with Dr. Sayah he explained that the size and shape of a woman’s breasts can change significantly throughout one’s life and especially during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is common for women to lose some of the fatty tissue in their breasts after breastfeeding, causing them to droop or sag. Afer discussing the options for different implants, the patient chose to move forward with surgery for bilateral breast augmentation. She chose 270 cc smooth round saline implants to be inserted through incisions made under the armpit and placed under the breast muscle.
The patient is very happy with the results of her surgery. The patient says that as an athlete she is happy that her breasts are larger but not too large to stay active. She loves the way that they look and feel.
