This 27 year old Asian female wanted to increase her breast from an A cup to a C cup. She wanted to have “significant fullness on top” as she loved to wear cocktail dresses, but wanted to do so without taping or a bra.
This lady has thick and nonpliable skin on her chest, typical of many Asian patients. She is 5 feet 2 in height. The key in successful augmentation for her is to enhance the breasts to harmonise her body. A breast that is too full and too wide for her body will make her look top heavy and disharmonise her body shape.
Our aim was to beautify her breasts and harmonise her whole body and not make her look “fat“. Sadly, this is a fairly common result seen in the communities for those petite females and their surgeons, whom in the quest of achieving certain breast size had lost sight of balancing and harmonising the patient’s overall appearance.
A 300 gm round implant placed subfascial, resulted in full, voluptuous D cup breasts that fit her body shape and give the illusion of a slimmer waist and upper body.
