Breasts Shapelier & Rounder
Before, 2 weeks ( High Riding) and 3 months after ( normal position after descent) More
You can see the breasts are much rounder like the patient desired. Her areolas look softer and are not protruding at a point like they were previous to her surgery. From the side, you can see the implants are still high riding a little, but those will continue to fall naturally with time. More
Much rounder and a much more feminine look! Our patient was so pleased with the outcome! Her breasts will continue to fall naturally, as you can see the implant is still high riding. More
High Riding Implants???
Implants, when done correctly, can be a rewarding procedure yielding beautiful results. However, sometimes implants can be considered "high riding" when they are placed too high in the breasts. If they're high riding, they will remain high on the chest even after the period where they usually settle. In many instances, high riding breasts are only a temporary result, as breasts will tend to naturally settle with the help of gravity and time. In some cases, like Mommy Makeovers, women elect to place implants higher in the breast to restore the loss of volume at the top of the breasts (also known as the Upper Pole) that can naturally occur with age and breast feeding.
