This 45 year old woman from Southeast Virginia had undergone a breast augmentation with a purse string type of breast lift nine years earlier at another practice.  She came to me for a consultation because she was unhappy with the shape that resulted from this type of lift.  During our discussion I explained how a full lift could greatly improve the sagging underneath and flattening that the purse string lift caused. Unfortunately the purse string lift removes extra skin around the nipple which will  result in her breast lift scars being less than optimal.  Still, this type of full lift is an excellent technique to correct the deformities that result from a purse string type lift regardless of whether an implant was placed at this time. Also, the full lift will not bottom out significantly over time and will likely stay stable for many years unless there are big weight fluctuations or pregnancies.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
