This patient presented to Dr. Galante in our Northwest Indiana office located in Munster, Indiana for a consultation regarding breast enlargement (breast augmentation). She was a 25 year old woman that was wearing an A cup bra and desired to be enhanced to a C cup. She had not had children yet, and wanted to fill out her tops better.
She was 5 feet 4 inches tall and had a small chest frame. Individuals such as this benefit greatly from a breast augmentation, but care must be taken to keep the breast implant size proportional to their overall body stature. She was otherwise healthy and was an excellent candidate for a breast augmentation.
She underwent a breast augmentation under general anesthesia as an outpatient in one of the surgery centers in Northwest Indiana used by Dr. Galante. A 310cc smooth, round, saline, high profile implant was chosen for this patient. The high profile implant gave her the volume and projection desired to fit her chest dimensions and give her the most natural result. The breast implant was inserted through a small incision in the crease under the breast and placed under the muscle. This location helps to prevent firm scar tissue from forming around the breast implant and keeps the breast feeling soft and supple.
Her recovery was brief as she was able to shower and dress herself the following day. Within two weeks she returned to all of her usual activities, and these patients can typically return to exercising by three weeks. The before and after photos of this Indiana patient’s breast augmentation result demonstrate the enlargement achieved with this procedure yet keeping her in proportion.
