Mastopexy Case Study 29
This lady has seen a droop of her breast down her chest wall. The footprint is low and the nipples sit a long distance from the aesthetic ideal. She wished to undergo a breast lift or mastopexy and wished to increase the volume of the upper pole of her breast. The results are shown at 6 weeks. It can take 12-18 months for the scars to completely fade and all the sensation to return and massage is important at this stage to help recovery. This lady also had fat transfer to the upper pole and the results of fat transfer can only truly be seen at a year. Although a small amount of tissue was removed from the left side and more fat was injected into the right side this lady did not wish her left breast to be reduced significantly and as such there will always be a slight volume difference between the two sides. She may opt in time to reduce the left side or increase the right side further with additional fat transfer / breast augmentation. She has not started her family and often the best advice in this scenario is to wait until she has completed her family before considering any further surgery. She is very happy with the result at this stage.
