This is a young girl who had never had any children, but had significant breast ptosis (droop). This was treated with a mastopexy, a procedure that lifts the breast tissue back into its normal position. No implants were used in this procedure, and are typically not required unless the woman desires to become significantly larger in addition to correcting the breast ptosis.


This patient opted for both breast enlargement (augmentation) and breast lift (mastopexy).


 


 


 


 


This woman desired a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and a breast lift. She was quite happy with her breast volume, but desired to "turn back the clock" to get the look she had before having children. The results shown are 5 months after surgery; the breast lift and tummy tuck were done at the same time as an outpatient (she went home the same day).


This woman desired a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and a breast lift. She was quite happy with her breast volume, but desired to "turn back the clock" to get the look she had before having children. She did not have implants placed, her post-operative volume is essentially the same as she had before the surgery, but repositioned back in its normal place.

The results shown are 3 months after surgery; Her scars are still pink indicating that they are still maturing. When the scars are completely mature, the pink color will fade completely: this may take anywhere from 6 to 12 months for most people. The breast lift and tummy tuck were done at the same time as an outpatient (she went home the same day).


 


This woman desired a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and a breast lift. She was quite happy with her breast volume, but did not like the sagging appearance that she ended up with after being successful at losing weight. The results shown are 5 months after surgery; the breast lift and tummy tuck were done at the same time as an outpatient (she went home the same day).


This patient desired more breast volume, but the degree of breast ptosis made it neccessary to perform this in 2 steps. The first step was a breast lift, performed in our office surgical suite under sedation with local anesthesia. After she healed from that procedure, she had bilateral breast augmentation using silicone gel 350cc implants under the muscle. Her final results are shown at one year after the breast enlargement surgery.


This patient was very successful at losing weight: she had lost over 70 pounds over the prior 18 months. She was unhappy both with the sagginess of her breasts, as well as the "deflated" appearance and volume loss since she lost her weight. Instead of using breast implants, we performed "mastopexy with autologous augmentation", in which the breasts are lifted in the traditional way, but also the excess fatty tissue from below her arms is transferred to the breast to provide more volume. The pre-op markings are seen in the lower left picture; in the final results (shown at 9 months post-op) her increase in size is due only to the transferred fat (implants were not used).


This woman was happy with her breast size when in a bra, but was very unhappy with the nipple position and overall droop of her breasts. This was corrected in our office facility under light sedation: she was entirely comfortable throughout the entire procedure. She was thrilled with her outcome.


 


 


This patient is a 48 year old who complained that she was unhappy with the saggy appearance of her breasts, but did like how she looked in a good support bra (she was happy with her overall breast volume). Her left breast was slightly larger than her right, so she had a breast lift performed on the right, and a breast reduction on the left (at the same time, under sedation in our office facility).
