boxy square shaped breast

Postby kandygirl007 » Mon Feb 02, 2009 1:41 pm

Hi Dr. Hochstein,

I had a BL/BA (anchor lift) with 200 cc HP mentor over the muscle on 12/5/08 (I am 2 months post op), and have boxy square looking breast.

Will my breast round out after six months and not look boxy squarish anymore? Will time round them out, or will they still have that boxy look forever?!
(I am 5'5" and 125 # My breast were a 34 DD due to Larger implants 550 cc each put in back in 1999, but was a 34 B before the BA in 1999.)
I got the BL to have smaller nicer looking breast, but now feel they look really weird being boxy. :(

Thanks!
9/1999 BA 34DD/32DDD

I cannot give you an opinion without pictures. The only thing I can say is that implants should never be placed above the muscle.

Sorry to butt in, but WHY do you feel implants should never be placed over the muscle?

Where do I begin...There is much more rippling due to less tissue/muscle coverage. There is a significantly higher risk of capsular contraction. There is less tissue/fullness at the superior aspect of the breast. There is typically a delineation of the edge of the implant. The overall appearance is unnatural. I am sure there are other reasons I am not thinking of right now but I think that is enough anyway.
