Mastopexy Case Study 22
This lady has finished her family and has found that her breasts have dropped. She is unhappy how they feel and how they look. She wished to elevate the breasts higher on the chest wall and give her breasts some fullness. She has had a mastopexy in order to tighten the skin and lift the breast tissue and at the same time she has had fat transfer in order to provide some increased volume into the upper pole. Although a mastopexy procedure will provide in the short term volume in the upper pole with time the breast will start to drop and empty. Fat transfer or breast implants are often the only way to provide longer term fullness in the upper pole. Patients need to be taken through the pros and cons as a one stage and a two stage procedure so that they can be empowered to make an informed decision.
