This is a great example of how sometimes, breast implants can change, not only the size, but the shape as well. This 33-year-old patient had lateral fullness to her breast that gave a wider look to her chest than she really had. We used 340cc Allergan implants placed through the underarm, using the endoscope and Keller funnel. It really helped give her a more proportionate appearance to her upper body.

This patient has several challenges but still ended with a very nice result. She had her left nipple slightly lower than her right, thin tissue in the cleavage, and she wanted to be a D cup and use cohesive “Gummy” implants. Being only 12cm wide, we settled on 405cc high profile Allergan implants, using a Keller funnel and a sizer. She turned out a great size and shape for her.
This 30 year old, who after being very lean, wanted to have a very natural tear drop shape. After looking and feeling the different implants, she decided on the tear drop gummy bear (Allergan style 410) to be a full C or small D. We did 395cc through an under breast incision. She looks great. No ripples and a very natural shape!
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.
