This breast augmentation patient came to us at age 34, after having 4 children. Breastfeeding had led to lost volume, and she wanted to explore how breast implants could restore that volume through surgery in our Tucson, Arizona office.  She was a full A to a small B cup and she was hoping to be a full C cup bra. During our consultation I learned that she had not had any prior breast complaints and did not have a family history of breast cancer.   After an examination I took several measurements of her breasts to help find the implant that best fit her frame. After using our implant sizing system she decided that she liked how she looked with the 450 cc silicone breast implant sizer.  In order to use a 450 cc silicone implant I explained that we had to use a high profile breast implant so the implant would not be too wide for her breast.  After we decided on the implant size we discussed the different types of implant options. We discussed the possibility of saline versus silicone implants.  She elected to go with the silicone implant because it felt more natural to her and because it has less rippling than a saline implant. In our consultation I discussed the advantages of an inframammary incision over the periareolar and axillary incisions. I explained that an inframammary incision allowed for the most direct access to the submuscular pocket and allowed for precise dissection of the pocket.  She underwent her submuscular breast augmentation at an outpatient surgery center in Tucson, Arizona.  I placed 450 cc smooth round high profile Mentor breast implants through an inframammary incision.  I used the Keller funnel for placement of the implants. The keller funnel is a device which allows the breast implants to be delivered into the submuscular pocket without actually having to touch the implants. The keller funnel therefore reduces the potential for implant contamination. She tolerated her breast augmentation very well and was discharged home the same day as her surgery. Her postoperative course was uneventful. She is now five months out from her breast augmentation and is extremely happy with her results.
