Breast augmentation with anatomical implants offers several potential advantages. Tissue-based planning is patient specific and essential in choosing the correct dimensions of an implant, thereby providing greater control in breast shape following augmentation. This video vignette demonstrates tissue-based planning in a patient with a constricted breast, allowing the surgeon to accurately choose the proper implant dimensions, which correct the constriction while providing aesthetic control of breast shape. Operative techniques of precise pocket formation, prospective hemostasis, and judging the aesthetic contour following implant insertion are demonstrated.
