5 Breast Implant Before-and-After Stories (And How to Get the Same Results)

Breast augmentation with implants is a very common procedure. In fact, it's the most popular plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States, with over 300,000 breast augmentations performed every year.

Still, it requires due diligence before making an informed decision — from nailing down your specific breast augmentation goals to finding the right plastic surgeon.

If you’ve been overwhelmed with too many choices, and things to consider before getting breast implants, we truly understand how it feels. We encourage everyone to research as much as they can before deciding on breast augmentation surgery. We've noticed that patients who do their homework before surgery are more likely to be happy and pleased with their results.

5 Striking Breast Implant Results to Learn From - With Before and After Photos

Reviewing before-and-after photos and reading up on patient stories, is a good starting point to help narrow down your choices.

The following are breast implant examples and stories from actual patients of our practice in San Francisco. We hope these stories and photographs help bring the breast implant outcomes you've envisioned for yourself.

Case Study # 1: Miss K


  • Patient Age: 26
  • Gender: Female
  • Ethnicity: Mixed
  • Height: 5'6"
  • Weight: 100 lbs

“The size and shape are just perfect!”

On her first visit at our practice, 26-year-old Miss K was already clear about her breast augmentation goals — she wanted womanly curves complemented with natural proportions and balance. At first, she was adamant about having too large, fake-looking breasts and looking like someone else.

We helped her make the decision, and through careful assessment and evaluation, she finally decided to undergo a breast augmentation with 350 cc smooth round silicone implants placed in the dual plane subpectoral position (under the chest muscle) through an inframammary (below the breast folds) incision.

Miss K is exceedingly happy with the results. After having breast augmentation, her natural, gorgeous curves accentuated her stunning multi-ethnic look.

Case Study # 2: Miss C


  • Patient Age: 28
  • Gender: Female
  • Ethnicity: Asian
  • Height: 5'5"
  • Weight: 110 lbs

"I love my new breasts, and the experience couldn't have been better."

During the consultation, Miss C openly admitted that her biggest doubt about having breast implants had to do with her Asian heritage. She’d done a bit of research and discovered some surgeons find working with Asian women a challenge, because of anatomical differences.

After several face-to-face consultations, Miss C decided to work with us. Her decision came after learning of Dr. Fan’s extensive experience in both the technicalities of breast implant surgery and in the delicate art and creative aspects of attaining great results.

Instead of making augmentation goals based on the quantity of breast implant volume, we encouraged Miss C to plan for her surgery in terms of her desired aesthetic outcomes.

Miss C decided to have 375 cc smooth round silicone implants inserted in the dual plane subpectoral (under the chest muscle) position through an inframammary (below the breast folds) approach. She highly recommends Dr. Fan for Asians who are interested in breast implants in San Francisco.

Case Study # 3: Miss X


  • Patient Age: 32
  • Gender: Female
  • Ethnicity: Caucasian
  • Height: 5'6"
  • Weight: 120 lbs

"I am very pleased with my results and got exactly what I wanted."

When she was a teenager, Miss X underwent a breast reduction to reshape her breasts. At 32, she wanted to improve the appearance of her small, deflated breasts but was reluctant because she knew that having breast implants could be more complicated—and dangerous—in someone who had undergone previous breast reduction surgery like she had. Additionally, she wanted to get extra-large (XL) sized implants, which further made her surgery more complicated.

Fortunately, Dr. Fan’s extensive knowledge and skill made it possible to insert XL breast implants in place via her existing inframammary (below the breast folds) scar, while preserving the vascularity and sensation to the nipple. She went from a 36A to 36DDD size using XL 650 cc smooth round silicone implants placed in the dual plane subpectoral (under the chest muscle) position.

Ms. X was equally pleased and relieved to find out that she could get fuller, shapelier, XL breasts after having had a breast reduction in the past.

Case Study # 4: Miss Z


  • Patient Age: 29
  • Gender: Female
  • Ethnicity: East Indian
  • Height: 5'7"
  • Weight: 130 lbs

"I'm very happy with my results."

Miss Z is a 29-year-old mom of East Indian descent who visited our San Francisco practice because she was worried about her deflated breasts following childbirth.

To help fill her deflated breasts, and restore a perky look, Miss Z opted for 435cc of round silicone implants placed in the dual plane subpectoral (under the chest muscle) position through an inframammary (below the breast folds) incision. After her surgery, the mother of two is beyond thrilled with the boost in her breast shape and appearance — transforming from a 36B to a 36D.

Case Study # 5: Miss M


  • Patient Age: 32
  • Gender: Female
  • Ethnicity: Caucasian
  • Height: 5'6"
  • Weight: 110 lbs

"I didn't want large or obvious implants. Dr. Fan and his team were excellent."

Ms. M is a 32-year-old Caucasian who wanted fuller, shapelier breasts. As a fitness buff, she didn’t want her new breast implants to interfere with her workouts or look very obvious.

After a careful physical assessment, and discussion of her unique goals, we came up with a customized breast augmentation treatment plan — 235 cc round silicone implants placed in the dual plane subpectoral (under the muscle) position through an inframammary (below the breast folds) approach.

Ms. M’s bra size increased from a 32A to a 32C, and she’s extremely pleased with the results. Her flattering workout clothes still fit, despite the new implants.
