CHICAGO BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY & ENHANCEMENT WITH BREAST IMPLANTS

Dr. Speron has a tremendous amount of surgical experience with Chicago Breast Augmentation. Breast Enhancement is the procedure he performs most commonly. Dr. Speron is able to offer all types of options to his patients:

  • he performs all of the various approaches including minimally invasive and no-scar approaches
  • he uses all types of implants including Mentor and Allergan as well as saline implants & silicone implants
  • he does not use drains for breast implant surgery
  • he offers the pain pump, if patients request it (his patients typically take narcotics for < 24 hours even without this)
  • all patients receive "nerve blocks" during surgery when they are asleep, which means the pain cycle is controlled from the very beginning

Dr. Speron is one of the leading breast enlargement surgeons in the Chicago area and offers a wealth of expertise with both saline implants as well as newer silicone implant


CHICAGO BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY PHOTOS

Breast Augmentation

35 year old female patient before and 7 years after bilateral breast augmentation (275cc round silicone high profile implants). Notice the maintained lifted appearance even though she did not undergo any lifting procedures and only has a periareolar scar that blends in nicely.


Breast Augmentation

39 year old female patient before and 6 months after bilateral breast augmentation (175cc round saline implants).Notice the old left breast biopsy scar from a surgery 2 years before her enhancement and augmentation. Compare it to her periareolar breast scar (close-up picture at the end of this page with all the other close-up scar breast augmentation photos).

Breast Augmentation

23 year old athletic female patient before and 6 months after bilateral breast augmentation (275cc round saline implants). Notice the great shape


Breast Augmentation

31 year old female patient before and 2 years after bilateral breast augmentation (175cc round silicone high profile implants). Notice the nice improvement with the small sized breast implant (what she wanted). This breast surgery was performed thru an Infraareolar scar - this decreases the areolar to crease distance which you can see clearly from this picture and gives the breast a more youthful appearance.


Breast Augmentation

34 year old female patient before and 6 months after bilateral breast augmentation (300cc round saline implants). Notice the lift without the breast lifting scars.


Breast Augmentation

41 year old female patient before and 6 months after bilateral breast implants (325cc round saline implants). Notice the natural contour.


Breast Augmentation

24 year old female patient before and 6 months after bilateral breast augmentation (350cc round high profile saline implants). Notice the asymmetry before and after her surgery. She certainly looks equal and great in a bikini or bra, but the slight asymmetry is noticeable when she is naked. Without a lift (where you cut out extra skin but have more scars), it is impossible to correct breast shape asymmetries with just breast augmentation.


Breast Augmentation

24 year old female patient before and 6 months after bilateral breast augmentation (350cc round high profile saline implants). Notice the natural tear-drop shaped breasts.

Breast Augmentation

43 year old female patient before and 6 months after bilateral natural Breast Enhancement (450cc round high profile silicone implants). This patient specifically wanted as much cleavage as possible and wanted her breasts to be fuller on top. Notice the natural result even with her arms pulled back and even though the implant is located under the muscle


Breast Augmentation

43 year old female patient before and 6 months after bilateral breast augmentation (450cc round high profile silicone implants). Notice the fuller breast


Breast Augmentation

36 year old before and 4 months after breast augmentation with areolar lift (210cc round high profile silicone implants). Notice the tremendous lift with minimal scarring. It does take at least 3 months for the breast to bottom out and look more natural.


Breast Augmentation

19 year old female patient before and 4 days after bilateral Chicago breast augmentation (175cc round saline implants). Notice the minimal swelling and bruising. The implants are always initially "top heavy" and "bottom out" to look more natural or tear drop shaped within 1-3 months


CHICAGO BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY SCARS:

Anytime a human being gets cut (with surgery or trauma), scars heal the following way: Initially they are red, raised and hard. Within 6-12 months, they are flat, white and soft. Younger people ( <18 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for up to 2 years. Older people (>65 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for less than 3 months.
Inframammary Scars (Most plastic surgeon's make this 4-5 cm but mine are usually 2.5 cm since I use the endoscope)

Breast Augmentation

21 year old female 1 year after breast augmentation by another surgeon. This patient had her surgery performed by another surgeon in the area - not by me! Notice the right side. The implant has been placed too low. This is a frequent problem seen after this procedure because plastic surgeons are traditionally taught to place the implant 2 cm below the crease - which is not correct, especially in older patients! Unfortunately this is a very difficult problem to correct. That is why it needs to be done correctly the first time.


Breast Augmentation

21 year old female after correction with an internal breast lift. No new scars were added and the same crease scar was used. This procedure is successful about 50% of the time. The best way to correct this problem would be a vertical breast lift - but this adds significant scarring.


Breast Augmentation

236 year old before and 1 year after breast augmentation (150cc round high profile saline implants). Notice the nice shape.


Breast Augmentation

36 year old before and 1 year after breast augmentation (150cc round high profile saline implants). Notice the maintained projection.

Breast Augmentation

48 year old before and 2.5 years after breast augmentation (240cc round high profile saline implants). Notice the natural look.


Breast Augmentation

41 year old female before and 3 months after revision of her breast augmentation with exchange to silicone and internal breast lift. The same inframammary fold scar was used (it was also repositioned higher because it was too low). The left picture shows her 2 years after two separate breast augmentation procedures by two other plastic surgeons. This patient had her surgery performed by two other surgeons in the area - not by me! Notice the right side. The implant has been placed too low and too far to the side. This is a frequent problem seen after this procedure because plastic surgeons are traditionally taught to place the implant 2 cm below the crease - which is not correct, especially in older patients! Unfortunately this is a very difficult problem to correct. That is why it needs to be done correctly the first time. This is a great result, especially considering no breast lift scars were used!


Breast Augmentation

41 year old female before and 3 months after revision of her breast augmentation with exchange to silicone and internal breast lift. She had her old 450cc saline implants removed and exchanged with bilateral 650cc silicone high profile implants. Notice the dramatic difference in shape.


Breast Augmentation

41 year old female before and 3 months after revision of her breast augmentation with exchange to silicone and internal breast lift. Notice the improved fullness of her upper breast. The internal breast lift is successful about 50% of the time. The best way to correct this problem would be a vertical breast lift - but this adds significant scarring.


Breast Augmentation

25 year old before and 1.5 years after breast augmentation (260cc round high profile saline implants). Notice the much improved symmetry and lasting natural appearance.

Breast Augmentation

23 year old before and 3 months after exchange of implants from saline to silicone with internal breast lift (250cc round saline implants replaced with 200cc round high profile silicone implants). Her first surgery was done by another plastic surgeon in the area and not by me! Her implants were previously placed under the breast but I exchanged them and put them under the muscle. She had a lot of rippling and wrinkling of the implant especially when she leaned over. She complained that they did not feel natural and were very palpable. These are the complaints I usually hear from women who have implants under the breast and not under the muscle. She also wanted a slight reduction in size. Only her old periareolar scar was used.


Breast Augmentation

23 year old before and 3 months after exchange of implants from saline to silicone with internal breast lift (250cc round saline implants replaced with 200cc round high profile silicone implants). Her first surgery was done by another plastic surgeon in the area and not by me. Notice the improved projection and decreased nipple to inframammary crease distance, which recaptures her youthfulness and perkiness.


Breast Augmentation

42 year old female before and 3 years after bilateral breast augmentation with saline implants. Patient expressed a desire for cleavage and a fuller look on top.


Breast Augmentation

42 year old female before and 3 years after bilateral breast augmentation with saline implants. Notice the improved shape and natural slope.

42 year old female before and 3 years after bilateral breast augmentation with saline implants. Notice the nice projection and maintained fullness superiorly.


Breast Augmentation

24 year old female before and 6 years after bilateral breast augmentation with saline implants. Notice the maintained natural result with well-concealed scars.


Breast Augmentation

24 year old before and 2 years after breast augmentation (255cc round high profile saline implants). Notice the improved symmetry and lasting result.


Breast Augmentation

38 year old before and 3 months after breast augmentation with areolar lift (250cc round high profile silicone implants). Notice the lift has given the patient more fullness. An areolar lift can always be done or redone in the office under local anesthesia as the patient ages once she feels like her breasts are falling and she would like them to be perkier. In this manner, we are now able to sometimes avoid the longer scars from breast lifts altogether.


Breast Augmentation

45 year old before and 11 years after breast augmentation (240cc round high profile silicone implants). Notice the much improved symmetry and lasting natural appearance without any lifting scars. The patient has only a 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock periareolar scar.


Breast Augmentation

45 year old before and 11 years after breast augmentation surgery (240cc round high profile silicone implants). Notice the lasting lift obtained even without any lifting scars. The patient has only a 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock periareolar scar. The scar can be reused to lift the breast in the office under local anesthesia as the patient ages and she desires a more lifted appearance, while leaving the implant alone.


Breast Augmentation

45 year old before and 11 years after breast enlargement (240cc round high profile silicone implants). Notice the lasting natural result without any additional breast lifting scars.
