This 24-year-old San Diego woman was dissatisfied with the overall size of her breasts. She was self-conscious in bathing suits and form fitting tops, in spite of being young and physically fit. Like many appearance-conscious women, she came to Dr. Chaffoo in to find out more about plastic surgery in San Diego.

Dr. Chaffoo carefully explained the many decisions that go along with choosing his La Jolla breast enlargement and cosmetic surgery practice. Patients over 22 years old can choose from both saline and silicone gel implants. There are a variety of sizes and shapes. Also, patients can choose the implant "profile," which describes the amount the implant projects (sticks out) from the chest wall. Dr. Chaffoo helps patients decide on the right implants for their body type during their private consultation.

This patient wanted a noticeable increase in breast size, so Dr. Chaffoo selected moderate plus implants filled with saline to 450 cc in both breasts. He placed the implants under the pectoralis major muscle to create a smooth, natural-looking breast shape. The patient's bra size increased from a 34A to a 34C.

After the outpatient surgery, the patient could immediately see the improvements. With only minimal swelling and bruising, she resumed her normal activities after only about 4 weeks. She is now more self-confident with her fuller bust and natural looking cleavage.
