This 37-year-old woman was satisfied being a C cup before having children. She worked hard to regain her pre-pregnancy shape by exercising regularly and eating right. Finally, she sought the assistance of Dr. Chaffoo at his San Diego cosmetic surgery office because no amount of exercise would give her the full, youthful breasts she once had.

This patient wanted to learn about her breast enhancement options and the safety of breast implants. Dr. Chaffoo told her that many of his patients choose breast augmentation to regain the breast fullness they had before childbirth. After reviewing her health history and performing a physical examination, he determined that she was a good candidate for the procedure. Because her breasts and nipples were stretched to the point where they simply could not regain their original shape, he recommended a breast lift as well.

To return the patient's 34B breast size to a 34C, Dr. Chaffoo used moderate plus profile, saline filled implants in both breasts filled to 400 cc. To conceal the implant edges and produce a smooth, natural look, he placed the implants under the pectoralis major muscles. He performed a vertical breast lift, where the incisions are mainly concealed along the edge of the areolas and extend down to the breast crease.

After her La Jolla breast enhancement procedure, the patient recovered quickly and readily resumed her regular activities. She now is happy and more confident than ever, having gained full, youthful looking breasts that compliment her toned and tanned body.
