Breast augmentation with 195 cc saline filled implants

Breast augmentation with 195 cc saline filled implants


This 32 year old woman underwent breast augmentation using saline filled breast inflated to a volume of 195 cc’s and placed partially beneath the pectoralis muscle. 

The individual has a mild pectus excavatum, a condition in which a person's breastbone is sunken into the chest.  She also has a tendency to stand in a slightly kyphotic position, which means that her upper back is rounded and her head is relatively forward.  

Obtaining a natural looking result in a patient who has pectus excavatum and postural abnormalities, as this individual has, can be challenging but is certainly possible.

In the case, the implants were inserted through a 3 cm incision at the lower border of the areola, which is the darker skin surrounding the nipple.  These incisions typically heal quite well and can be difficult to see.
