This 32 year old patient from Alabama was searching for a doctor who specialized in difficult cases and could correct her great asymmetry while paying close attention to her reconstructed chest wall. She is 2 months post-op repair of pectus excavatum and breast asymmetry. In pectus excavatum, also known as funnel chest, the sternum (breastbone) is depressed relative to the rest of the chest wall. Breast implants can be used to camouflage mild to moderate pectus excavatum. She has 275cc implants on the left and 375cc silicone gel implants on the right side.
