Breast Augmentation With Lift After Prior Reduction Mammaplasty

Procedure Details


Correcting Pseudoptosis

Pseudoptosis or "bottoming out" of the breast can occur naturally or as a consequence of prior breast surgery as in this case. The nipples may also appear too high on the breast and can sometimes show peeking out of bras or swimwear. Loss of upper pole fullness is often the case as well and can be corrected by breast augmentation with implants or with fat grafting to the breast if the goal is for very modest enlargement( a cupsize or less). Breast implants are necessary if the goal is to increase more than a single cup size. It is important that the implants are in the correct position. Excess lower pole skin was removed in this case to improve the result.
