Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This patient is 33 years old. She is 5’7” and weighs 133 lb. She desired to be a large C cup and was size carefully in the office. She chose 400 cc implants, and therefore we chose the transaxillary approach to insert her moderate plus profile, 400 cc, silicone gel implants in a submuscular position. You will notice that she had a slight asymmetry preoperatively with her right nipple higher than the left. We compensated for this a small amount during surgery, but she still of course has a slight asymmetry afterwards. She is very happy with her results.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This patient consulted with me requesting breast augmentation. She had some natural preoperative asymmetries to her breasts with the left side being higher than the right. She is 33 years old, 5’6” tall, and weighs 118 lbs. Preoperatively she was a large A cup and postoperatively is a large C cup. She chose the transaxillary approach to help keep the scars off of the breast; and we utilized high profile, 350 cc, Mentor, smooth, round, silicone gel implants. She is pleased that we were able to compensate for her natural asymmetry, and she is very happy with her result.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This 36-year-old patient stands 4’11” tall and weighs 85 lb. She’s had 3 children all by C-Section and felt that she would like a mommy makeover. On examining her, indeed she had muscle separation of her abdominal wall with a small hernia of her bellybutton. She had also lost volume in her bustline. We discussed various options and decided on a transaxillary breast augmentation using silicone breast implants, and we chose the size of 250 cc, high profile implants. We also performed a full abdominoplasty keeping the scar very low in her bikini line and using the hooded flap reconstruction technique to recreate her bellybutton.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This 65-year- old female came to me wondering about the possibility of a breast augmentation. Even though she had been pregnant three times, she had never breast fed, and her breasts did not need any lifting. She is 5’1½ “tall and weighs 100 lb. After reviewing her measurements, we decided on 350 cc, high profile, silicone gel implants to be inserted via the transaxillary approach. She is very pleased that she has no scars on her breasts and that they have a very youthful appearance.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This patient desired breast augmentation to a size D and did not wish to have scars on her breasts. She is 38 years old. She stands 5’4” tall and weighs 136 lb. After performing sizing in the office, she chose 600 cc, high profile, silicone gel implants which we inserted through the axillary approach. She is quite happy with her result.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This patient had postpartum breast involution with some breast asymmetry. She is 5′ 6″ and 132 lbs. She preferred to not have scars on her breasts and after discussing all options we decided on a transaxillary (armpit incision) subpectoral approach. She is very pleased with her results.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This 36-year- old patient experienced some involution of her breasts after giving birth to her children. She is 5’7” tall and weighs 142 lb. While it might appear from the preoperative photographs that she would need a lift, we determined that her nipples had not descended far enough to warrant this. Therefore, I elected to perform a transaxillary breast augmentation using 375 cc smooth, round, silicone implants. She is very pleased with her result including the fact that she not have a scar on her breasts at all.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This 23-year-old patient did not like the look of her breasts after breastfeeding her children. She stands 4’9” tall and weighs 100 lb. I discussed with her the need for both breast implants and a breast lift, however, she did not wish to have any scars on her breasts. Therefore, we chose to do a transaxillary submuscular breast augmentation using high profile, silicone gel, 375 cc implants, knowing that she most likely would need a mastopexy or breast lift performed at a later time.
Being very careful with the submuscular dissection, I was able to get the implants in just the right position to fill out the breast envelope without giving her a double bubble. In the postoperative photographs, you can see that her nipples are still a little bit low, but she is extremely happy with her result as it stands and is not wishing to have the breast lift done at all.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This patient presented with “A” cup breasts and wished to be approximately a “C” cup. She has very little body fat, stands 5’7” tall, and weighs 108 lbs. She has a naturally wide cleavage line, and I discussed with her that we would not be able to narrow this too much for fear of exposing the implant under the thin sternal skin. We utilized 355 cc, high profile, Sientra silicone gel implants, and she is very happy with her choice.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This 52-year-old patient stands 5’5” tall and weighs 120 lb. She has always thought her bustline was disproportionate to her shoulder width, and she wished to have a larger bustline. After sizing her in the office, she decided on 275 cc implants, and therefore we placed these via the transaxillary endoscopic approach using silicone, moderate plus profile, Mentor implants. She is overjoyed with her result.
Dr. Kachenmeister discusses this case. This patient stands 5′ 3″ and weighs 108 lbs she had previous silicone breast implants done by another surgeon a number of years ago. Unfortunately they had ruptured and become contracted especially the left side.
