Breast augmentation for a woman with scoliosis may require special expertise
Breast augmentation patients with scoliosis need sizers during surgery.
About 5 % of women who want breast implants have significant enough scoliosis that they have apparent (not real) breast asymmetry. This happens because one side of the rib cage is pushed forward.
So they may need slightly different sized implants and slightly different implant pockets on each side. To eliminate any guess work, we put sterile disposable implant sizers into the breasts during surgery before making a final decision about the best permanent implant for each side.
