Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This 25-year-old San Diego mom was unhappy with the look of her deflated breasts after breastfeeding her 2 children. Wanting her breasts to be full again, she began looking for a La Jolla breast augmentation specialist to enhance the look of her breasts.
Following breastfeeding, this patient's breasts were at a small B cup and sagged mildly. In medical terms, she had grade 1 ptosis, where her nipples were slightly sitting above the inframammary crease. Often a breast lift is recommended to treat sagging breasts, but since her sagging was only mild, Dr. Chaffoo determined that a breast augmentation alone would address her concerns. Additionally, since her breasts were relatively symmetrical in size and shape, Dr. Chaffoo recommended that she have 400 cc silicone implants placed in each breast to make her breasts look fuller.
In her postoperative photo, the patient's breasts are noticeably larger and have a more feminine contour. The shape and size of her nipples has been restored as well; they are much smaller and rounder and sit at a better position on her breasts. Many La Jolla plastic surgery patients experience a boost in confidence following procedures like breast augmentation. This patient was very happy with her results and felt more confident in her breasts' new appearance.
