This is a 35 year old woman who is very active and has a very low body fat percent. She desired to be a full C-small D. Because of her lean frame, we decided to use Allergan 410s, 425cc anatomical implants. Post-op she has no rippling, a very natural upper slope and loves her result.

This patient is a good example of a question that comes up frequently. If a patient has a natural orientation of her breast to the outside, will that mean her breasts will point out or have a big space between?
This patient presented with a more outward orientation to her nipples. We matched the width of her breast with her implant (Allergan 371cc mid profile) and she went from a B cup to a full C. Her nipple/areola still will have an outward orientation, but by using a matching width implant, an acceptable space can be obtained. This also is an example where a high profile implant would not be recommended.
Although we are placing more silicone implants than saline, there are still a number of patients that prefer saline. Both implants can give a very different look from each other and in this patient, the roundness of saline is well demonstrated. She is very thin (5'8" and 118lb) and was looking for a round full breast with saline implants. She had 390cc style 68mp implant filled to 450cc, done endoscopically through the underarm.
This 25 year old woman had thought about breast augmentation for 3 years before moving ahead. At 5' 6" she originally had thought about a regular C cup, but after doing the "rice test" she bumped up a bit into the D range. We placed 421cc Allergan mid profile implants through the underarm. She started out with a very good breast shape before surgery and this is a great prediction of a great result after.
At 5'7" and 112 lb, this 30 year old was looking for a more natural breast, wanting to minimize the fullness at the top. Considering that, and her thin frame, she decided on a silicone gel anatomic shaped implant, wanting to be on the full C-small D border. Using the "rice test" she decided on an Allergan Style 410 FM Implant, 395cc bilateraly. She is naturally a little larger on the right, but not enough to place different size implants. Her result shows a very soft, natural upper pole of the breast, helped by the 410 implants.
This 25 year old has 2 small children and before kids felt she was a B cup but now, more of a deflated B. She is a great example of how in the right patient, implants can help fill out deflated breast tissue. She did bilateral transaxillary breast augmentation with saline, 330cc style 68mp filled to 360 bilateral. Even though her normal breasts are more on the lower side, her result is very natural sloping breasts.
This is a lean 31 year old woman who is very active and started with a B cup, and was looking for an athletic smaller size C. She decided on silicone and this was one patient that I used a sizer in, because we didn't want her to be too big. We ended up with 304cc Allergan Natrelle Gel Implants bilateral and a very natural result.
This 45 year old woman presents with one of the more challenging body types, being very lean with little breast tissue or body fat. Implant rippling and capsule irregularities are very common with thin patients. Saline implants usually won't work in these cases, and even standard silicone can be tough. So in this patient, we decided on the "highly cohesive" teardrop option. In most other cases I can get a natural tear drop result using a round implant, but every so often, I need a teardrop implant to get a teardrop result, and this is that case. We placed Allergan Style 410 implants mf 295 cc with an incision under the breast, and she was VERY happy, and no rippling!
This 37 year old woman went from a B cup to a "B minus" (as she put it) after childbirth years prior. She now wanted a much more full breast, closer to a full D. She went with Allergan 457 mid profile through the underarm, using a keller funnel. Post op pictures at 3 months show a soft result with a natural slope.
I think it's helpful to show all shapes and sizes of patients and breasts, and this 42 year old is a good example of more dense breast tissue with a bit of droop as well. She wanted a full breast and we did Allergan 533cc mod profile silicone gel implants through the underarm using a keller funnel. She is a good example of how a lower breast and nipple can be pushed out giving a lifted look!
