This 32 year-old woman had moderate loss of breast volume as well as ptosis (droop) after breast feeding her 2 children. Dr. Tholen performed breast enlargement and facial cosmetic surgery in one outpatient operation under TIVA (Total IntraVenous Anesthesia), which reduces post-op nausea and vomiting, as well as facilitating rapid recovery. She did well after this combination breast and facial surgery. Pre-operatively, this woman came to our office to try on implant sizers a total of 3 times, choosing slightly larger each time, leading her to a final size that she felt was perfect. (480cc smooth, round, cohesive silicone moderate profile). Note in the side view how smooth, soft, round implants are teardrop-shaped when patient is upright (and no capsular contracture). The round, high, "fake" look some women desire is possible with soft moveable implants and a nice push-up bra, but when it occurs nude, this is due to capsular contracture, and the "look" is accompanied by hard breasts and inability to hug without embarrassment.
