  • Dr Dona explains how you can achieve the best possible cleavage from your surgery.

    The cleavage achieved after surgery is dependent on many things. These include:

    • The quality of pre-existing breast tissue ​​​​
    • Pre-existing cleavage skin:
      • Is the skin tight and tethered to the chest bone?
      • Or is it loose and free?
    • The chest muscle or pectoralis muscle is an important consideration in cleavage, as its position and shape is very important when implants are placed under the muscle. This is because certain features of the muscle can affect how close the implants will be sitting to the midline.
      • For example, is the muscle attached close to or far from midline?
      • Or, is the chest muscle thick or thin? In other words, does it have a broad or thin attachment to chest wall near midline?
    • Shape of chest wall can have an important role in the cleavage – is the chest wall flat (which is ideal), is it concave, or barrel shaped?
    • Implant ​style – moderate, high or extra high profile? Extra high implants give the best chance of having a deep cleavage
    • Does the implant make the most of the pre-existing breast footprint or desired footprint? – in other words, is the implant the appropriate width for the diameter of breast footprint?

    Ultimately, surgical skills and experience is vital to assess and work with all these variables to provide the ideal cleavage. However, many times due to the way the person’s natural anatomy is, it is not possible to achieve a tight full cleavage outside of a bra.
