Many women in the San Diego area consider plastic surgery to increase their breast size and achieve a more feminine looking shape. This 19 year old woman was very self-conscious about the size of her breasts and lack of cleavage and met with Dr. Chaffoo for a consultation.

Dr. Chaffoo reviewed the woman's health history, performed a physical examination, and answered her questions. Although she was young, San Diego breast augmentation is approved for women over 18 years old, although saline implants are the only choice for the majority of women age 18 to 21. Women who want silicone gel implants currently must wait until they are 22 years old for initial augmentations.

Because this patient had a narrow torso, Dr. Chaffoo recommended moderate plus profile implants that project farther out from the body but have a narrow base. Placing the implants beneath the pectoralis major muscles achieved a natural look and feel. To achieve balance between the size of her breasts, he filled the right implant to 425cc and the left to 375cc. The patient ended up with a modest increase in cup size from 32B to 32C, which is an appreciable enhancement on such a small frame.

After a quick recovery from her San Diego plastic surgery procedure, the patient now is more confident both in and out of clothing. She feels more feminine in form fitting workout tops and bikinis, and can more confidently celebrate her youth.
