This active 20-year-old woman was considering breast augmentation to help her obtain fuller, rounder breasts and a more feminine profile. She also felt somewhat dissatisfied that her left nipple appeared slightly higher on her breast than her right. During her private consultation with Dr. Chaffoo at his La Jolla plastic surgery
office, they thoroughly discussed her unique goals and the best way to achieve them. Dr. Chaffoo also explained in detail all of her breast augmentation options, including size, type of implant, and profile.
After careful consideration, this patient selected saline implants, which can be custom ordered to create a patient's ideal breast size. Because she had very good existing breast symmetry and wanted her breasts to have a natural appearance, she received 375 cc saline implants for both breasts, which increased her bra size from a 34A/B to a full 34C.
Saline implants are filled with a salt water solution. Improved surgical techniques, such as placing the implant behind the chest muscle and slightly overfilling it, have improved overall patient satisfaction with saline implants. Dr. Chaffoo also offers silicone gel breast implants, which are a popular choice for many of his patients.
This patient is very happy with the outcome of her La Jolla breast augmentation
. As you can see, the added breast volume gives her the more feminine contour and profile that she desired. In addition, her nipples now appear aligned and well proportioned with her breasts.
