Case of the Month – February 2017 – Body Builder / Fitness Breast Augmentation

I have seen a number of body builder / fitness lifestyle patients for breast augmentation.  They are often concerned about implant placement and implant type.  I advised placing the implants under the muscle with proper releases of breast attachments.  There is a risk of animation (movement with pectoralis muscle contraction), but there is a relatively greater risk of poor superior soft tissue coverage and capsular contracture in the above muscle position.  Patients with some breast tissue do well with a standard silicone implant, but those with little coverage may do better with a firmer cohesive round implant or form stable shaped implant.  For details on the patients below, see the new category in the photo example section.
