Breast Reconstruction / Mastectomy: Case 2 (02209)
Breast Reconstruction / Mastectomy: Case 2 (02209) This 46 year old mother of 3 children consulted Dr. Graham about improving her breast shape. She was not aware that she had a significant breast deformity. Her breasts had asymmetric size, areolar protrusion, very narrow base constriction -- all characteristic of a condition known as tubular breast deformity.
Correction necessitated a combination of procedures: implant augmentation to provide volume and contour, and periareolar mastopexy to reshape the central breast. The incision removes excess pigmented areolar skin, and leaves a scar around the areola. Internal work was also done. 350-380ml subpectoral saline implants seemed to provide a nice breast shape and volume.
