Implant Deflation 01a
Patient 26 year old wanted a fuller breast size in proportion to her body.
She was 5’6” 145 lb. 34 -36 B before her surgery.
Breast augmentation under pectoralis major muscle via periareolar incisions using smooth round saline implants 420cc minimum fill volume filled to 450cc on each side, intermediate profile. IV local anesthesia by surgeon
Post op bra size 36D very soft and mobile.
She had 2 children and gained weight to 200 pounds during the second pregnancy 2 years before these after photos.
She had no problem breast feeding her children after her breast augmentation procedure with periareolar incisions.
Breast were very soft and implants difficult to detect as they moved very easily with the lightest touch within a large pocket.
After pictures 9 years 10 months after surgery when she returned to the office feeling the R breast had become softer and smaller starting about 2 previously but had not gotten any smaller. Exam 5’4” 135 lb. 36 C or D brassiere confirmed R side significantly smaller (~75 cc = 5 Tablespoons) Most likely the R side developed the smallest pinhole leak. As there is minimal pressure on this implant as very lax skin, capsule and very mobile implant, implant did not deflate all the way. She has elected to replace both as she is just within the manufacturers 10-year warrantee period. She restored original implant size plus 30cc (2 tablespoons) more volume to each side. photos not yet available.
