S | 18 YEAR-OLD | CAUCASIAN | FEMALE | NEW YORK, USA
WHAT WAS DONE?
- Periareolar Breast Augmentation
- Saline implants
S is an 18 year old young lady who came to seek help for breast augmentation. For her entire high school years, she felt embarrassed with her breast size and shape. She disliked the fact that she could not wear any nice dress or even T shirts without a heavily padded bra. She was graduating from high school and going to college after the summer. She had a strong desire to have a boyfriend but was very self conscious about her body and had no confidence at all. On exam, she had almost no breast tissue and a severe tuberous breast deformity with breast tissue herniated into her nipple like a tube.
After consultation with mom and her, with the goal of releasing her tuberous breast balancing with a well hidden scar in mind, around the areola breast augmentation was performed. Immediately after surgery, she went home with minimal pain and returned to school after a few days of rest.
On subsequent follow ups, she was always very excited, sharing her stories about her trips to the beach, her dress at the prom, and you can see the obvious suntan on her!
BEFORE AND AFTER
My experience was great! I understood everything that was happening very well, you answered all questions and concerns, and you were very easy to reach when needed. I am so happy with my results. It’s been 3 weeks since my breast augmentation and I feel great and they look great!
Other CASE STUDIES
L, 32, Asian
L is petite and always had been flat chested. Her breasts also sit low on her chest wall. She also expressed difficulty in wearing more feminine clothes. Due to the likelihood of scarring in Asian people and her preference not to have any visible scar from the frontal view, transaxillary endoscopic breast augmentation was done.
S, 18, Caucasian
S is an 18 year old young lady who came to seek help for breast augmentation. For her entire high school years, she felt embarrassed with her breast size and shape. After consultation with mom and her, with the goal of releasing her tuberous breast balancing with a well hidden scar in mind, periareolar breast augmentation was performed.
M, 35, Asian
M is a 35 year old Asian lady who is the mother of one child. She desired large breasts because of deflation after breast feeding. She also at the same time wanted her nipple reduced in size because she did not like the enlarged and aged look. After discussion, transaxillary breast augmentation was done and using minimal incision technique her nipples were reduced at the same time both in width and height.
M, 46, Swedish
M is a very beautiful lady from Sweden who used to work as a fashion model in Manhattan. She now is a full time housewife. She came to clinic with desire to restore the volume and shape of the breasts she once had. Because she is about 6 feet (183 cm) tall and has a wide shoulder, she would like at least a D cup size for her breasts.
M, 35, Hispanic
M is a social worker in the hospital. She came for breast augmentation and she wanted the least visible scar possible. After discussion, augmentation through her areola was done to give her a desired C cup.
B, 33, Hispanic
B is a mother of one child. She came to clinic for breast augmentation consult. She had an irregular scar on her right medial chest from radiation in childhood so she was afraid another incision would scar the same way. After discussion, transaxillary breast augmentation was done to avoid any visible scar on the breast and chest.
D, 30, African American
D always wanted bigger breasts since young. She was very flat chested and underwent a breast augmentation one year ago. She now wants to upgrade from a B cup to a C cup. Implant exchange was done through her old incision and she was happy with size afterwards.
D, 40, Indian
D had two kids and since then she felt her breasts had been deflated. She was proud of her natural double D breast when she was young and would like to return to her youthful look. Notice the difference in terms of filling her deflated upper pole of the breast and also the lifting effect for the nipple position after breast augmentation.
