Jessica was seeking a natural result, to feel feminine, but without people being able to notice that she had breast implants.
After spending time in consultation and trying on a range of implant sizes and shapes, Jessica and Dr Szalay agreed that 330cc medium profile round implants suited the width of her chest and hips and in the mirror Jessica felt it was the ideal “look” that she had been seeking. Medium profile round implants give the appearance of being natural, but still provide fullness.
Dr Szalay recommended that the implants be placed below muscle because that would allow the pectoralis muscle to drape over the implant, softening its upper pole into a gentle and natural curve. Before surgery Jessica was an A cup and afterwards a full C.
Ashley was seeking a full look, whilst still being natural. She wished to have a noticeable difference that she could see in her clothes but without having an “operated on” appearance. Sometimes when implants are placed behind the muscle they can end up smaller than expected.
Taking this into account and after trying on various implants, Ashley and Dr Szalay felt that a 380cc high profile implant suited the width of her shoulders and hips and provided the fullness she was seeking. Whilst Ashley had enough natural tissue to place her implants above muscle, a below muscle placement was recommended as implants tend to hold their position better in that position.
An incision in the crease below the breast was recommended as this provides the most accurate position. Before surgery Ashley was a B cup and afterwards she was a D cup.
Amanda was a very lightly built girl who was seeking a natural result. Because she had minimal tissue it was important to carefully plan her procedure as she wished to avoid looking “fake”.
In this situation, tear drop implants can be ideal as they can provide a gentle slope which blends in a patients upper chest with the upper part of the implant. When using tear drop implants, polyurethane implants have an advantage as they don’t rotate. A further advantage of polyurethane implants is that they reduce the risk of capsular hardening.
After trying on a range of teardrop implants, Amanda and Dr Szalay felt that a 470cc extra-high profile implant suited the width of her shoulders, chest and hips. The implants were placed below muscle in order to ensure a smooth slope to the upper part of the implant. Before the procedure Amanda was a AA cup and afterwards a D cup.
Sarah was seeking an enhanced, full look- something that would look great in a bikini. She was hoping to accentuate the size and upper fullness of her breasts.
After going through a range of options during the consultation, Sarah and Dr Szalay felt that a 505cc high profile round implant suited both her height and shoulder width. The 505 was a size which Sarah could carry well , adding definite fullness to her figure without looking fake. Because her tissues were slim, a below muscle placement was recommended in order to smooth out the appearance of the implants, hold their position better and reduce the chance of rippling.
Rippling is a possible risk when a girl is lightly built and is more likely in these patients when an implant is placed above muscle. Prior to surgery Sarah was a B cup and after surgery a D cup.
Stephanie had breast-fed previously and as a result had lost the upper fullness of her breasts. She said her breasts felt empty and a bit deflated and she was hoping to restore the volume that she used to have, especially in the upper part.
In this situation, round, high profile implants can be helpful and after trying on a range of sizes, Stephanie settled on round, high profile 380cc implants. Dr Szalay recommended dual plane placement of the implant. This is when the position of the muscle is carefully re-arranged during surgery so that the upper part of the implant is covered by muscle, providing a natural appearance.
The muscle is also moved away from the lower part of the implant during surgery and this allows the implant to fill out the lower, deflated part of the breast. The dual plane technique is ideal for women who have breast fed as it provides natural, upper fullness whilst still filling the lower part of the breast.
