Breast Augmentation-San Jose
This young woman came to see Dr. Lepore in our San Jose plastic surgery office, with concerns about loss of volume in her breasts. She is involved in competitive sports and body-building. The competition, and emphasis on weight-bearing exercise has altered her physique, building muscle, and eliminating fat. She wished to restore some of the lost volume, through Breast Augmentation.
In this case, she was counseled that a moderate breast lift might help address her concerns about sagging of her breasts, but she chose to proceed with Breast Augmentation alone. Because of the effect weight-lifting has on developing and tightening the chest muscles, our patient had her implants placed in a subglandular, rather than submuscular position. Often, very tight chest muscles can push an implant into an unnatural appearance or shape, when flexed.
Our patient chose full, round, smooth silicone implants, 415cc. She is very pleased with her results, and her restored breast volume and appearance.
