This 40 year old patient was unhappy with her sagging breast. She did not want breast implants and was a great candidate for a breast lift (mastopexy) with nipple reduction. She describes her result by Dr. Lee as, “FABULOUS!!” and adds that she is much, “more confident.” Dr. Lee performs the vast majority of breast lifts and reductions with the short scar technique. He believes in getting the best possible results with the smallest incisions possible.
This 26 year old patient wanted her breast volume reduced and the overall look of her breast improved. Both of these goals were accomplished through a slightly extended lollipop incision. This incision extends around the nipple and then down to the breast fold. It continues towards the outside of the breast if there is excess skin in this area. Scars towards the middle of your body do not always heal well so Dr. Lee tries to avoid this as much as possible.
From having children and having implants in for a decade or more, breasts can start to sag. This patient wanted her implants removed and to be as small as possible, while still achieving the most aesthetic result. Excess breast tissue was removed then sculpted into a much more symmetrical and fitting size. At three months postoperatively, the incisions are healing and will continue to fade over the next year.
Patients often come in seeking to change out their implants because the tissue becomes saggy and the implants are no longer in their perky position. With an implant exchange and breast lift, this patient was able to achieve better symmetry while restoring more upper-pole fullness. The selected implant fills out the footprint of the breast mound more appropriately, creating beautiful cleavage.
This patient wanted to exchange out her old implants and to have a breast lift to correct “snoopy deformity”. This is a term used to describe saggy, droopy breast tissue that hangs off the breast mound. A breast lift with an implant exchange was performed using a slightly bigger implant. Her breasts are now in a more youthful position and have a nice fullness.
