BT was a 29-year-old mother with three children; twins aged four and a 14-month-old baby. She was happy and followed a healthy lifestyle.
The Effects of Breastfeeding
Following the births of her children and subsequent breastfeeding, BT found that the size and shape of her breasts had changed, a problem that is common in women following childbirth. As for many women, these changes were a concern for BT and were having an impact on her enjoyment of life.
Prior to her pregnancies, BT had been comfortable wearing a swimsuit but this was no longer the case. She also found that many of the clothes that she wanted to wear were not a good fit so was unable to dress as she wished.
BT had a desire to increase her breast size so consulted with me regarding a bilateral breast augmentation to increase her preoperative A cup to her desired C/D cup.
Working together to come up with a solution
On examination, I found BT to be a valid candidate for a bilateral breast augmentation.
During the consultation process, we discussed her options and decided on cohesive silicone gel anatomic, or teardrop-shaped, implants which would be inserted underneath the pectoralis muscle. The incision site would be in the inframammary fold at the bottom of each breast, where the scars would be well hidden.
BT’s surgery was performed as a day procedure. Her recovery was uneventful, with no problems experienced, and she was able to return to her normal daily duties after a week.
Transformation leads to a more confident lifestyle
Six weeks after her surgery, BT had been able to fully return to all activities.
Her new C/D cup-sized breasts had the natural appearance that she desired and also gave her body a balanced look.
I too was happy with the result and assured her that I did not anticipate any problems for her in the future and encouraged her to pursue whatever activities she desired.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health professional.
