420g #3 Breast Augmentation

This patient had some tuberous breast features including conical shape, lack of lower breast tissue and a mildly prominent areola (pseudoherniation).  She was 5’7” tall, weighed 130lbs, wore a 34B bra, and preoperative breast width was 14cm. After discussing all of the options we decided to insert textured anatomic implants to help fill out the lower breast, along with radial scoring of the implant pocket to help it expand. This technique involves making internal incisions in the breast tissue that extend from the nipple region to the lower breast crease, to help it stretch out.  If desired, it is possible to reduce the size and prominence of the areola with a periareolar (“donut”) mastopexy, but this patient was already satisfied with the outcome.  It is important to note that even after surgery, the lower aspect of tuberous breasts might appear a little flatter and not as full as typical breasts with implants. The postop photos were taken 11 months after surgery.

Implant type: 420g, textured anatomic implant (moderate height, full profile)
Incision: Inframammary
Pocket: Subglandular
