This young woman felt extremely self-conscious about her asymmetrical and tubular shaped breasts. Constricted breast shapes occur because the breast tissue does not “relax” during development to accommodate the growing tissue. This can cause a tube or bullet-like shape.
To get the look the patient wanted, Dr. Mahony released the tight fibrous bands, reshaped the left areola, and added modestly sized saline implants to improve her symmetry.
An advantage of saline implants when considering asymmetric breasts is that you can adjust the implant volume 1ml at a time! This attention to detail and thoroughness is essential for any corrective breast surgical procedure.
