Constricted breast is a challenging aesthetic problem for the patient who desires a breast augmentation
- Posted on: May 19 2015
Dr. Claytor discusses the challenges for aesthetic breast augmentation of a 24 year old patient who is self conscious of her small breasts. She is not able to find clothes which fit comfortably. She desires a more natural shape and would like to feel comfortable in a bikini.
The challenges for the surgeon are to to achieve symmetry and place the implants in the area behind the nipple areola complex. The inframmary fold is too high and the base of the breast is constricted.
Treatment for her includes lowering her inframmary fold, releasing the pectoralis muscle with a dual plane technique to achieve an aesthetic curve shape to the lower pole of the breast. The patient requested a silicone implant which is a good option for her anatomic challenge.
