New data presented at the 2013 American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) meeting suggests that the inframammary incision (in the fold under the breast) carries nearly a 50% lower risk of capsular contracture than the other incisions (periareolar, transaxillary, and transumbilical).
The overall risk of capsular contracture after breast augmentation surgery is a range of about 10-15%, but new data suggests that the risk can be cut to about 5% with inframammary incisions.

Teardrop shaped breast implants, also know as Gummy Bear Breast Implants, are becoming more popular since they received their FDA approvals recently.
Gummy Bear Implants are great devices, but they aren’t for everyone. They have their own unique set of pluses and minuses when compared to smooth round silicone breast implants, so make sure you have all the facts before you commit to one or the other.
The first photo was taken during breast augmentation surgery. You can see that her new breast implants look good right away… they don’t look as good as they will once they are healed, but they still look symmetric, attractive, and much better than what she has to start with. They are sitting slightly high on her chest because the skin hasn’t even started to stretch, but overall they look nice.
The second photo was taken the day after surgery. She is more swollen, and the implants haven’t settled or dropped at all yet (in fact, they actually look a little higher because of the additional swelling), but they still look attractive and symmetric. She can easily imagine what they will look like after they are healed without having to envision any dramatic changes.
If your new breast implants look so bad to you that you are having a hard time envisioning that they will ever look good no matter how much stretching and settling occurs, then there might be a problem. You should speak with your surgeon right away if you feel this way after your procedure.

This may seem like an easy procedure, but this is actually one of the toughest breast augmentation surgeries. This woman was very petite and in very good shape with incredibly low body fat, but she wanted a larger sized implant. It is extremely difficult to achieve a natural look with this combination of factors, but as you can see, it is possible with a highly advanced technique of implant insertion.
She underwent a submuscular (under the muscle) breast augmentation with a 397cc (full C cup) moderate profile Natrelle silicone implant, and this is the result at only 6 weeks after surgery with only about 80% of the stretching complete. Over the next 6 weeks, her result will continue to improve as the bottom half her breast completes it full stretch and the implants rotate down into an even more natural position.
With the Rapid Recovery technique, she was back to work in less than a week, and back to the gym after only 10 days.

If you’ve spent any time looking at Before & After photos for breast augmentation, you have probably noticed how common it is for the implants to be sitting too high on the chest.
These are photos of a 24 year old woman who traveled to Miami to have her breast augmentation by a “prominent” plastic surgeon, but as you can see in her Before picture (taken one month after her original surgery), she didn’t get a great result. Her implants are sitting VERY high on her chest and they have an unnatural rectangular shape. Her original implants were 650cc high-profile saline that were overfilled to about 700cc. They felt very hard, and looked frozen to her chest when she tried to move them.

Does anyone know the most common complaint after breast augmentation surgery?
Believe it or not, most women wish they had selected a larger size! Choosing a size for your new breast implants is a tough decision, and since everyone is scared of looking fake, most ladies tend to err on the side of caution and go with the smaller sizes that leave them wishing they a little extra volume, and a little extra sex appeal, after the surgery.
That being said, using larger size breast implants does require a special technique that is designed to keep them looking as natural as possible, so if you are interested in a larger size like Playmate & Former Heff Girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson, keep reading to learn more about The Playmate Breast Augmentation!
The Laser Bra Lift is an amazing procedure originally developed in Los Angeles in which a laser is used to create an internal bra.
That’s right, in internal bra! The Laser Bra Lift produces a more natural breast shape that lasts much longer than traditional breast lifts, and it’s all due to the internal support that only the Laser Bra procedure can create.
