Breast Augmentation Northern Virginia + Silicone + 280cc

Procedure Details

29 year old 3 months after a breast augmentation using 280cc high profile silicone filled breast implants with under the breast incisions going from an a to A to a C cup. She is young and wants only a very modest increase in size. The scar is still fresh and is very small due to the use of a Keller Funnel.

Breast Augmentation

My approach and philosophy on breast augmentation depends on the patients age, the patient’s wishes, and the patient’s anatomy.  I have a different conversation if the patient is young and has not previously had children. Young patients need to be more conservative in their choice of size as having babies later will distort their breasts more than the usual.  


Silicone is available for patients over 21 years old.  If the patients choose a silicone implant, I can make my incisions close to half the size of most plastic surgeons as I regularly use a keller funnel to place the implant.  This also decreases the risk of infection, damage to the implant, and capsular contracture.


All implants are placed using a dual plane technique under the pectoralis muscle ( submuscular plane ).  This allows a more natural contour, decreases the ability to see and feel the implant, as well as decreases the risk of certain complications like capsular contracture.  


A breast lift might be needed for older women or women who have had children.
