Many women wonder how soon new breast implants start looking good, and here is a great example.
This is a 32 year old woman who had a Playmate Breast AugmentationTM with Natrelle teardrop gummy bear (Style 410, Full Height, Full Projection) 335cc breast implants, under the muscle. This is the result at only three weeks after surgery. The skin below her nipple will continue to stretch and round out over time, the implants will continue to soften, and continue to look better and better all the way to a full two years after her procedure.
Her procedure was quite difficult in that she had so little natural breast tissue to begin with, and because she was using a sizable breast implant with a great deal of projection. Cases like this are our specialty here at MAS, and this is where the Playmate Technique shines as one of our most popular offerings.

New data presented at the 2013 American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) meeting suggests that your choice of incision does affect your risk of capsular contracture.
The overall risk of capsular contracture after breast augmentation surgery is a range of about 15-20%, but new data suggests that the risk can be decreased to approximately 5% with inframammary incisions (in the fold under the breast). The two other most common incisions for breast augmentation are the periareolar incision (around the bottom half of the areola) and the transaxillary incision (through the armpit). This new research suggests that you have a significantly reduced risk of capsular contrature by choosing an inframammary incision for your breast augmentation procedure.
