This 24-year-old San Diego woman was self-conscious about her breast size (36 B), which she felt made her hips appear out of proportion with her body. She also wanted to have full, feminine cleavage. She visited me to find out if La Jolla breast augmentation could give her these improvements.

At her initial consultation, I reviewed her medical history and asked her to share what she wanted to improve about her breasts. While her breasts were small, there was no sagging, making her a good candidate for breast augmentation without a breast lift. Because her breasts sat naturally close together, I told her that it was likely that she'd be satisfied with the cleavage she'd attain from breast augmentation. I reviewed the breast implant options with her, including implant material and profile, implant placement, and incision location.

After meeting with me, my patient coordinator helped the patient understand the available implant options and choose the ones best suited for her goals and body type. Patients can feel both saline and silicone implants to help them choose between the two materials. By trying on a variety of implant "sizers" in her bra, this patient was able to get an idea of what she'd look like with a variety of breast sizes. She decided on 375cc moderate plus implants, which project farther from the chest than the standard moderate profile implants.

This patient's surgery proceeded smoothly and she was thrilled with her fuller, more feminine breasts and balanced body. Most women can return to their normal daily activities within 2 weeks of their procedure and more strenuous exercise after about 3 weeks.
