Breast Augmentation – Inframammary Fold Adjustment


This 28 year old patient has nicely shaped breast but also has a rather significant difference in the position of the fold under the breast, This anatomic position is called the Inframammary Fold.  Small differences in breast size, nipple position and inframammary fold position are very common.  In this patient, she found it difficult to position her bra as it tended to ride up her chest and ribs on right side. On the right breast, the Inframammary fold was slightly lowered 1cm and on the left side the fold was raised 1 cm (1/2 inch).  325 cc silicone implant on the left and 350 cc silicone breast implant on the right.
