Inframammary Silicone Breast Augmentation

Procedure Details


Breast Enlargement Los Angeles

This female patient from Los Angeles, CA had a breast augmentation performed through an Inframammary Submuscular approach using a Natrelle, silicone implant, to improve the appearance of her breasts.


The inframammary submuscular approach was used because it allows the implant to be positioned without touching the breast tissue.  The incision is a slighly less than 2 inches and  facilitates identification of the pectoralis major muscle.  Placing the implant under that muscle is believed to lessen capsular contracture or hardening of the implant because it lessens the potential for the development of a biosphere on the implant surface.  Biospheres are small colonies of bacterial and are believed to stimulate the inflammatory process promoting capsular contracture.


Preoperatively her breast size was .  Her goal was to achieve balance better balance and have an aesthetically pleasing body line.  The breast implant choice, after sizing on the operative table, was a Natrelle 330 cc implant filled to 330 cc.
