  • Breast Augmentation

This 30-year-old female had an athletic body type and wanted to enhance her femininity with a larger breast size. She started searching for board-certified plastic surgeons in Columbia and found Dr. Chang. After reading though his bio and resume, she decided to make an appointment and meet him in person.

During her consultation, she explained that although she was happy with her overall body shape, she wanted to have a softer, more feminine appearance. Dr. Chang agreed that breast implants could give her the look she wanted and discussed her options with her. He explained that breast augmentation in Columbia is an important surgery that requires many decisions, including the implant size, type and style as well as the incision location. He performed a physical evaluation and then gave her his recommendations for surgery. Together, they decided on 325/350 cc silicone implants.

The day of her procedure, Dr. Chang inserted the implants through the inframammary crease, which is located in the breast fold. The breast implants were placed partially under the muscle using a technique known as the dual plane approach. This method is believed to reduce the risk of complications and visible rippling after surgery. Now, her breasts are more proportional to her body and complement her frame nicely. She loves her curvy new shape and couldn't be more pleased with the results.
