Breast Surgery – Before and After
Below are before and after pictures of Dr. Severinac’s patients in no particular order. All patients have saline implants (Mentor 2000, moderate plus profile) placed under the pectoralis muscle. Here are some important issues to consider:
Patients will often bring in photos of breasts and say “I like these breasts”. Dr. will sometimes say “If your breasts were made of clay, I could make them exactly like that.” He explains half of the result is what he does in placing the implants in the best possible position in a given patient and half of the result is what the patient has to cover the implants with. Notice that the patients who have the best looking results are those that have the best looking breasts before surgery. This has to do with the patient’s own tissue covering which is not directly altered but just expanded under the forces of the implant.
The most common issues in regards to a patients breast tissue coverage is with nipple position and the gaping between the breasts. Low set nipples can be most often improved with an augmentation alone. Really low or asymmetric nipple positions can be corrected with a breast lift procedures. With gaping, however, the breast implant augmentation can only make the breasts as close as a given patient’s anatomy allows. If these tissues are released between the breasts, synmastia can occur where the breasts are connected down center, a very difficult problem to repair.
In any case, Dr. Severinac will guide you through these issues and expectations leading to the best possible result…
