Mastopexy Implant Case Study 43
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 has some asymmetry and lacks confidence as a result.
This lady did not wish to undergo a large increase in size and she was torn between undergo a mastopexy implant procedure a mastopexy and autologous fat transfer. A breast augmentation alone would not have given a good result.
This lady chose to have a breast augmentation alongside a mastopexy or breast lift in combination using an anchor scar pattern incision. This incision can allow the fold of the breast to be fixed higher on the chest wall and in Mr Ross’s opinion reduces the chance of bottoming out long term. This mastopexy implant procedure gives a more reliable volume than autologous fat transfer and this lady is very happy with the result. The results are shown at 6 weeks and the scars still need time to settle. 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 aid recovery.
