This 32-year-old administrative assistant from Chicago had a problem common among women who have had children: after childbirth, her breasts sagged, the nipples were lower, and the upper part of the breast has become more concave because of the loss of volume following pregnancy. She was interested in breast augmentation in Indiana to achieve a fuller breast shape that would bring her from a 36 B to a C cup. At the same time, she wanted to explore options for breast lift to correct the mild ptosis (drooping) visible in the "before" photo.
This patient exercises regularly, maintains good health, and is very physically active, so she is a good candidate for cosmetic surgery in Indiana. In her consultation, we discussed implant options, and I explained that while breast lift is sometimes necessary, breast augmentation is almost always enough to correct very mild drooping. At the same time, however, I made it clear to her that if the augmentation did not improve the sagginess to her satisfaction, she could undergo a breast lift 3 to 6 months after the augmentation, when the implants would settle into a more natural position.
Three days after her surgery, her implants remained "high" in the breasts and had not yet settled, but as you can see in the "after" photos taken 3 1/2 months after her procedure, her implants have settled in place and her results are quite pleasing. After her breast augmentation, this patient has a good breast contour, and her breasts are well-positioned given the full C to small D cup size.
