Breast Augmentation Results

q5iZEjBzWueW1Q-aeLj_7bPuVXGjGh8oAc8ubp-zNUQWomen who are considering undergoing a breast augmentation cosmetic surgery should be aware that their natural body shape will have a defining impact on how their breasts finally appear after the procedure. The breasts are located over the muscles of the chest wall, while underneath those muscles are the ribs. These ribs connect to the body at the spine, creating a unique breast anatomy. The shape and position of the breasts is influenced by the woman’s unique body shape. The plastic surgeon should discuss these aspects with the patient at the time of initial consultation. Breast augmentation ‘before and after’ pictures can be used to aid this explanation process. Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing breast augmentation and other procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Spine and Rib Curvature

Ribs and spine will usually have a slight curvature, which influences the appearance of breasts on the chest wall. However, many surgeons may make the mistake of treating it as a less important aspect of breast augmentation plastic surgery. In reality, when the breast implants are surgically placed, it will have a magnified impact on the shape of the breasts. The base on which the breasts rest is constituted of the ribs, spine, and breast bone. If these components are curved in a peculiar way or have asymmetry, then the breasts may point in divergent directions. In such cases, once the breast implant will be placed, it can considerably affect the resulting breast mound. Drooping of one of the shoulders will occur when the woman stands up, if the ribs or spine have a curvature. The patient can understand this aspect better with the help of breast augmentation before and after images. Dr. Seify is a leading cosmetic surgeon who receives patients from Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas for breast implant surgery.

Impact on Posture

When the ribs and spine have a slight curvature, it will usually affect the patient’s posture. One hip or shoulder will typically be higher than the other, making this anomaly easily noticeable. When one shoulder or collarbone is higher than the other, it may cause breast asymmetry or breasts at different heights. All these aspects should be taken into consideration when the breast surgeon prepares a breast augmentation surgical plan.

Anomalies of the Breast Bone and Ribs

Sternum, or the breast bone as well as the ribs typically come together to form a barrel that will be slightly flat on the front. Ribs can create different shapes at times. One side of the ribs might project further than the breast bone. In some cases, the breast bone may not be flat and may project further than the ribs. The breasts will usually sit on the ribs close to the breast bone. Therefore, any variation in the foundation will make the breasts appear differently on the chest wall. When the breast implants are inserted, these aberrations are likely to appear magnified. This makes it imperative for the surgeon to identify and address these concerns prior to breast implant surgery.

Breast Augmentation Results

nudeA woman’s breast anatomy is unique, and it will have a vital role in determining the aesthetic outcome of breast augmentation plastic surgery. The aim of the breast surgeon should be to tailor the procedure in accordance with the unique anatomical and aesthetic requirements of the patient. Board certified and highly experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides breast implant surgery and various other surgical and non-surgical procedures. Dr. Seify believes that optimal outcomes in breast augmentation can be achieved when the surgeon customizes the surgery and combines the best principles of art and science. He provides breast implants to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Anatomical Features of the Breast

It is important to carefully evaluate the breast anatomical features prior to deciding the surgical plan for breast augmentation cosmetic surgery. Skin layers cover the breast area, which include superficial blood vessels and nerves. The deepest and the most important skin layer is the dermis, which provides strength to the skin. Dermis thickness will vary from one woman to another. Patients with a fairly thick dermis will generally have suitable skin for breast augmentation. Elastin fibers in the skin will allow it to remain elastic and supple. Sometimes during pregnancy, the breast skin goes through a long phase of stretching, which can make the skin less elastic and thin. This will result in sagging of the breasts, which may require breast lift in conjunction with implants. Some women may develop stretch marks if the breast expands too fast. The plastic surgeon can combine procedures to reduce stretch marks along with implant surgery. In case of excessive skin laxity, heavier breast implants may not be recommend to avoid lower pole fall-out. All these considerations are important in order to achieve optimal results with breast augmentation. Dr. Seify makes a comprehensive assessment of all anatomical elements before going ahead with the breast implant procedure. He receives patients from Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas.

Nipple-Areola Complex

Nipple-areola complex is a part of the top layer of the breast skin. The areola tissue is of a different color from other areas due to its gland structures. Areolar skin is thinner and stretches more than the skin in other parts. Areola size as well as the position of nipples will differ from one woman to another. In case the nipples are positioned very low or point downwards, the surgeon may recommend a breast lift along with breast implant surgery.

Breast Fold

The inframammary fold (IMF) or the breast fold is a significant part of breast anatomy from the perspective of breast implant surgery. This fold is usually present where the underwire of the bra is placed. Even if the breasts are very small, the anatomical structure of the fold will still exist. The fold is important because the implant will mostly rest on this fold. Adequate attention should be given to the breast fold during the surgery to ensure proper shape and position of the breast implants.
