|Before||After Breast Augmentation|
This mother in her mid 30s from Joliet, Illinois, visited our office with the desire to increase her breast fullness and contour, which had decreased considerably due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. She also wanted to improve the position of her right nipple, which appeared slightly lower on her breast than her left.
During our consultation for breast enlargement in the Naperville, Illinois area we reviewed this patient's medical history and discussed her goals. I also explained the options available, including implant type (saline or silicone gel), placement (above or below the pectoral muscle), and incision placement, recommending those options that would most effectively deliver the look she wanted.
Women who elect to undergo breast augmentation have three main options when choosing incision placement. The peri-areolar incision is made along the lower outer edge of the patient's nipple, allowing optimal access for the surgeon. The scar also blends well with the nipple tissue. The trans-axillary incision is created in the arm pit. Endoscopic equipment allows the surgeon to visualize the implant pocket, and the incision can be well concealed in the armpit. The third most common incision is in the inframammary fold, or along the lower crease of the breast, where it meets the chest. This placement affords the surgeon excellent control over positioning of the implant, and the final scar is difficult to detect in most patients.
This patient and I ultimately chose an inframammary incision for positioning her saline implants below the pectoralis muscle. The surgery and recovery went smoothly, and she is now quite pleased with her new, more feminine appearance, wearing a C cup instead of a pre-operative 32A. As you can see from the photographs above, both breasts, including the nipples, look symmetrical and proportional to her frame and general body type.
