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!
Many patients wonder what implants might look like 10 years later and even after pregnancy. This is a woman who at 25 underwent bilateral breast augmentation through the underarm with 325cc Saline implants filled to 325cc. Her pre-op photos show a very good starting shape. Her first post-op pictures are at 3 months after surgery. Her last set of photos show her at almost 10 years later AND after childbirth and breast feeding.
28 year old currently an "A" cup desiring to be a mid to full "C" and feeling she was slightly larger on her left side than her right. At surgery, I placed Allergan regular profile implants through an underarm incision, 360cc on the right and 330cc on the left. Two and a half years later she had another child and did not breast feed.
This 31 year old presented with slight assymetry of her breasts, with her left breast being a bit more full and "V" shaped at the bottom than her right. She chose saline implants and wanted to be right on the C-D cup-side border. Allergan 68 LP 350 saline implant were placed through the underarm, and then filled to 370 bilaterally. She is a great example of how saline implants can also give a very natural result.
