What is Breast Augmentation for Scoliosis Patients?
Over 300,000 women choose breast enhancement surgery each year.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation was exceeded only by liposuction (fat removal) procedures. The latest figures available report that over the last 15 years, breast enhancement has grown by 300%. It is now safer and more attainable than ever before.
How does Scoliosis affect Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Although the majority of scoliosis cases are mild (and often un-diagnosed at the time of consultation) some cases are more severe and can impact the results of Breast Augmentation Surgery, for example:
- One breast may sit higher than the other
- One breast may face more outward than the other
- Nipple height and position can be more asymmetric than average
I have scoliosis – am I a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery?
Although many of the same attributes apply to all patients seeking breast augmentation – e.g. otherwise good health, realistic expectations, stable breast size and shape, a good understanding of the risks of surgery – there are special considerations in the setting of Scoliosis. For example:
- A history of previous rib cage or spinal surgery
- An appreciation of the existing rib cage asymmetries
Although the same implants can be used in patients with Scoliosis, it requires a heightened awareness and experience to ensure the most symmetric result possible is obtained – often this requires using implants in unique combinations that wouldn’t be used in someone without Scoliosis – for example using implants of different profiles or dimensions in the same patient, in order to counterbalance the asymmetries due to their spine or rib cage.
