Breast Augmentation Reduction Lift

Procedure Details

Breast augmentation revision where larger implants are changed to smaller implants requires making the inside pocket smaller and generally a skin tightening procedure (mastopexy). A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. There are many different breast lift techniques. This periareolar breast lift technique: lifts the nipple to a more normal position, creates a more youthful shape to the breast emphasizing minimal scarring (scars only around the nipple). This 45yr old Harrisburg area patient underwent a previous breast augmentation procedure with 350cc saline implants. She wanted to exercise more and said her breasts were too large. She was seeking a procedure to reduce and lift her breasts. She was a 34D, she wanted a reduction to a full C. She likes having implants and would like to have a smaller implants. She had a Mentor Memory Gel Xtra Moderate plus 160cc silicone implant placed with a periareolar mastopexy to reduce the excess skin.
