Before & Afters - Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
This is a 40ish YO lady that is healthy. She liked the size of her breasts but wanted them back up on her chest. She had bilateral nipple sensation which was somewhat important for her to maintain. During the consultation, we discussed the methods available to lift the breasts. Some of the methods had a better chance of maintaining nipple sensation but the shape was not as good. Other methods, which were her preference, created a better shape with a slightly reduced chance of maintaining nipple sensation. She underwent a superior medial pedicled mastopexy. She had a completely uneventful post operative course. She has maintained nipple sensation bilaterally and is thrilled with the cosmetic appearance of her breasts. She has lost less than a cup size with the lift. Shown are before and two months post op photographs.

This is a lady that was seen for consideration for a mastopexy. She liked her size but wanted her breasts back up on her chest. She underwent a superior medial mastopexy which allows for some repositioning of the lower breast tissue to the upper pole to facilitate some better contouring. Her post operative course was entirely unremarkable. She lost about ½ cup size following the surgery but her breasts are back up on her chest, off her abdomen, and have a much better shape.

This is a 40ishYO female that has had saline breast implants over 10 years ago. She went from a D cup to a DD. She subsequently got pregnant and upon presentation to my office was buying G cup bras. She had the complaints typical with someone with large breasts with neck, back, and shoulder pains, rashes beneath the breasts. She was athletic and the size of her breasts was making exercise difficult. On exam, her breasts were large and dense. Probably 60-70% of the breast volume was breast implant. Most of the breast tissue was beneath the inframammary crease. She had numbness and tingling in the fingers from the weight of the breast compressing the nerves in her shoulders. She decided to remove her implants and do a breast lift. Since the majority of her breast was implant, we wanted to use as much of her breast tissue to maintain some breast volume. All the breast tissue within the mastopexy incisions was de-epithelialized (the skin was removed) and this tissue was buried beneath the breast to provide some projection. She has maintained nipple sensation and the breasts are nicely shaped with good upper pole fill. Her neck, back, and shoulder symptomatology has completely resolved. Exercise is not a much more pleasurable endeavor. She measures a large C/small D.
