On exam, she has an underwire chest wall measurement of 32" and a breast base diameter of 12.3 cm. She underwent a submammary (on top of the muscle) breast augmentation with 370 cc smooth, round, moderate projection saline-filled implants through an inframammary based incisional approach. She is seen here at four months following that surgery now wearing a 36 - D cup bra.
