This 50 year-old woman wore a B-cup bra and desired to regain her fuller breast shape from her youth. To find out more about how Baltimore plastic surgery could restore her former shape, she planned a consultation with Dr. Chang. She appreciated how much effort Dr. Chang and his staff put into her consultation, and particularly enjoyed the way the Columbia Aesthetic staff demonstrated real commitment to a high standard of care. After her consultation, this patient was confident with her plastic surgery decision-making process and her plans for a new shape.
In her procedure Dr. Chang placed two 325cc silicone-gel implants in the "dual-plane" position, under the mammary gland and behind part of the pectoralis muscle of each breast. This approach has numerous advantages over standard submuscular placement. Because the surgeon does not need to reposition the entire pectoral muscle, the implant is easier to position, and since the implant pocket is created mostly in soft tissue, patients typically recover faster and more comfortably with this approach.
This patient's new breast shape nicely fills out her upper half, and she is very pleased to be able to wear a full C-cup bra. In these photos taken one year after her procedure, her results significantly enhance her overall appearance and look very balanced and natural for her frame. She had put time and thought into her decision to be sure that she developed healthy goals, and as a result she is very happy with the results of her Baltimore breast enhancement.Surgeon: Eric Chang, MD
