Comments: This patient wore a DD bra. This procedure also represents a small breast reduction. The incisions are the same in either a breast lift or reduction. In a breast lift, only the skin and a small amount of breast tissue are removed. In a breast reduction, a larger amount of breast tissue is removed, usually over 300 grams per side. Using this technique there is no horizontal or “anchor” scar which is associated with the older “inverted-T” technique.

Comments: This 32 year-old mother-of-three felt that her three babies had taken a toll on her body. She did not like her breasts, which she found too large and saggy, the right more than the left. In two operations, the breasts were lifted using the vertical mastopexy, small implants were used to fill out the upper poles of the breasts and restore lost convexity, and liposuction was performed. The pictures of her body before and after liposuction may be found in the liposuction section of this website. This patient was 5’2” tall. This surgery has made her torso appear longer and her body now looks longer and leaner. Her breast incisions have healed nicely and are inconspicuous. With the vertical mastopexy, there is no horizontal scar under the breast.

Comments: This 35 year-old mother-of-four wished to be a full D cup size. This is larger than the size requested most commonly, which is a full C. Her left breast was slightly larger to start with, so a smaller implant was used on this side. There is still some bruising evident on these pictures, taken four weeks after surgery.

Comments: This patient was concerned about her breast sagging. She thought this would help show off her torso. She said she did not need to be a larger size. The day after surgery she was already pleased. One month after surgery she found the incisions almost invisible.

Comments: This patient had significant asymmetry and sagging after her two children and 70 pounds of weight loss after her second pregnancy. She had to wear a D cup bra because of her right breast. After surgery, she wore a C cup. This changed her breasts from a source of embarrassment to pride.

Comments: Women do not like it when their nipples point toward the floor and this 39 year-old mother-of-two was no exception. Her left breast was slightly larger than the right. The benefits of simultaneous liposuction and a tummy tuck are evident. She told me that one morning she was late for work because she spent two hours in front of the mirror admiring her “new body.”

Comments: This patient’s right breast was larger and saggier than the left breast. She had lost volume of the upper poles of her breasts after having children. She did not want to be “really large” but definitely wanted to “get her breasts up.” She had some puckering of the skin below her right breast which eventually flattened out.

Comments: This patient called me from her new home in Texas to report that the right breast had deflated. She elected to have a breast lift the same time the implants were replaced. She had both implants replaced with a slightly larger size (the old ones were 275 cc.). The close-up picture shows a small opening where an absorbable stitch is dissolving. These are common. Sometimes I pluck the stitch out if it is at the surface.

Comments: This patient did not want to be much larger, but wished to have her breasts lifted like they were before she had children. Although this patient was a 1 ½ pack-per-day smoker, she had no complications, likely due to the fact that the vertical technique was used, with no skin undermining, and minimal nipple transpositioning.

Comments: This woman had large, saggy, asymmetrical breasts with large areolae (which women do not favor). Afterward, she commented that her breasts were “perfect.” Her torso has also benefited from a simultaneous tummy tuck. She is seen only one month after surgery. She has started tanning, taking care not to expose her incisions. The procedures compliment her hourglass figure.

Comments: Comments: This 43 year-old stay-at-home Mom works out daily. She wanted to keep her breast size about the same, just have them lifted. To accomplish this goal, excess tissue is removed from the lower poles and the upper poles are simultaneously filled in using implants (that work much better than natural breast tissue). She got back to her same workout routine and felt great about the way she looked.

Comments: This 43-year-old mother of two had a major degree of asymmetry that caused her embarrassment and was difficult to conceal. She understood that a combination of implants and a lift would be most effect in providing more symmetrical breasts. She was not disappointed.
