Procedures Performed
  • Breast Augmentation

This lady is a twenty four year old woman from Tucson, Arizona that came to Rao Plastic Surgery to discuss having a breast augmentation. She wore a B cup bra and was interested in being a C cup. She had not had any prior breast surgery and had not noticed any breast cysts or masses. Her family history was negative for breast cancer. During our consultation we discussed options for implant type, implant shape, and location of the pocket. I explained that she was an excellent candidate for either saline or silicone breast implants since she was over twenty two years old.  I explained that silicone breast implants feel more natural, and that with saline breast implants there is a higher incidence of rippling of the implant (the ability to see the contour of the implant in a patient’s chest).  Based on her physical exam and her desire for upper pole fullness, I recommended that a smooth round silicone implant would be perfect for her.  Her frame was very petite and I explained that I would place her implant behind her pectoralis major muscle to prevent the implant from being discernable.  Her surgery was performed at an outpatient surgery center in Tucson. I used an inframammary incision in her breast fold and her breast implant was placed in a subpectoral pocket.  With all breast augmentation cases where I use a silicone breast implant, I utilized the Keller funnel, which allows the implant to be placed in the most sterile fashion possible.  This decreases the risk of capsular contracture when the implant is not touched. After her breast augmentation she was discharged to home from the surgery center. She is now four months out from her breast augmentation surgery and she is very happy with the way her new breasts look.
