Constricted breast is a challenging aesthetic problem for the patient who desires a breast augmentation

breast augmentation in Bryn Mawr, PA | Claytor/Noone Plastic Surgery

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 that fit comfortably. She desires a more natural shape and would like to feel comfortable in a bikini.

The challenges for the surgeon are to achieve symmetry and place the implants in the area behind the nipple-areola complex. The inframammary fold is too high and the base of the breast is constricted.

Treatment for her includes lowering her inframammary fold, and 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.
