55-64 year old woman treated with Breast Implants
A mother of 2 in her mid 50’s who describes herself as a 34 A cup but does not fill her bra. She feels that her breasts are too small for her body and does not feel feminine. She is a runner and is thin at 5’8” and 117 lb. She would like to regain some fullness in her upper breast but still look natural. She is shown before and again 7 weeks after a bilateral breast augmentation with the dual plane placement (below the muscle in the upper breast and below the breast in the lower breast) placemen of a textured round 300 cc high profile silicone gel implant. An infra mammary incision was used. Texture was chosen to decrease the risk of lateral shifting of the implants with time, but we chose the Mentor texture which is the least aggressive of the three companies and may therefore have a lower risk of pseudo-capsule formation and late seroma.
