Patient I: Twelve Months After the Implant
Normal wound healing, no scar formation, no fibrosis.
The breast has an anatomical shape with a round implant.
Patient II: This is a 45-year-old patient who had given birth twice. She expressed a desire to have breasts like she had before the births, now that she had finished having children. A supramuscular implantation with a 260-g round, low-profile implant was carried out using the supramuscu-lar access on this patient.
Twelve months after the operation: The breast shows no scar formation and has a natural shape. An outsider would not notice that breast augmentation had taken place.

Patient III: 32-year old patient with breast hypoplasia and thin skin covering with prominent sternum. Implant 290, submuscular. It is up to the experienced surgeon to decide whether a submuscular implant is appropriate. If there is any doubt, then the submuscular implant is the safe option. There has been no definitive scientific clarification relating to the incidence of capsular fibrosis.
