Your at the plastic surgeons office planing on having your breast enlarged. Your breast bone is 3.5 inches down. You are trying to figure out a way to increase the size of you breast without affecting where your sternum is. If your sterum bone is located at 60 degree angle of elevation, where would the incision need to be made?

    It's an interesting question, but not a particularly good one. Sorry. In the first place, there is no such thing as a breast bone so the idea of it being 3.5 inches down (down from what, specifically?) is silly. In the second place, no breast enlargement procedures involve anything so drastic as repositioning the sternum. Typically, it involves making an incision in the breast and inserting little baggies of silicon. I read the brief discussion of this in the chat room and see that this is a question 'for you' as well as for school. By that I assume you mean you're considering this procedure for yourself? Given the pain, the generally bad aesthetic results (lumpy, crooked boobs) and the very high rate of serious (as in seriously painful and seriously dangerous) long term complications - tearing the collagen and previously healthy connective tissue in your breast, bag slippage, leakage and other bad things, you don't need your doctor to look at your boobs. You need him (or her) to look at your head if you're considering having this done. And they're unethical. In this country where so many people can't afford necessary health care procedures - when I was in college once I cut open my own leg and dug a bent pin out of my own femur because I couldn't afford to have it done by a surgeon - because quite a few doctors are busy cashing in on unnecessary cosmetic procedures on those who can afford them, boob jobs are just plain wrong. In fact, so many women who have boob jobs hate them that 85% have the implants removed within five years and 96% have them removed within ten years. So why have it done in the first place?

    also, boob enlargement is no one-time thing. in every case (!), you will need to redo the surgery to 1) change the implant because the membrane get thinner over time and you don't want silicone leakage because of cancer and/or 2) get bigger implants as your boob skin adapts over time and will look very saggy. recently, it was found out that ALL implants of a certain brand need to be taken out asap because the membrane became porous and the cancer risk shot through the roof. also, i prefer the feeling of natural boobs - but that's not everyone's taste. :-) michael jackson would disagree, but: think twice!

    First of all it was a made up question not for actual work being done
