Can I get the look I want (500cc) when I have very little breast tissue and a slightly uneven chest wall?


Will I be able to achieve the look I want? I’m guessing I’ll need 500-600 cc because of how small I am. My measurements are 28,24,33 and I’m 5’8″ 110lbs. Would you recommend under the muscle and if so why? And will round or shaped implants give me the look Im trying to achieve? Thank you

Answer from Dr. Anton

Your children have probably stretched your breast skin out during pregnancy and therefore you skin should be able to embrace 500-600cc implants. Implants should always be placed under the pectorals major muscle and this means that only the upper and inner implant would be covered as there is no muscle below this level. Putting the implant in this submuscular space decreases the risk of capsular contracture (hardening), creates a smoother upper breast pole and creates a better cleavage. Smooth round gel implants are optimal in my opinion as I believe the textured (shaped) implants have higher contracture and revision rates. Regarding the breast contour postoperatively, the shape of your breast is determined by your skin envelope and not the shape of the implants.
