This 33-year-old patient from Norfolk is shown four months following breast implants with a full lift, or what is also known as ‘mastopexy’.  When she first came in to consult with me, she had severe sag of her breasts. In addition to this sag, however, she was also suffering from a breast deformity known ‘constricted breast’, meaning she was missing some tissue in the middle-lower breast.  To help correct these conditions, I employed a European-style technique I have been using for over 5 years. The powerful lift offered by this technique is accomplished by actually removing the breast tissue that hangs lowest. In her case, we removed 86 grams on the right and 94 grams on the left, and then tightened each breast at a seam on the underside.  You can imagine this as cutting the middle out of a sagging hammock and then stitching the two sides back together to make it nice and tight again.  The significant advance in technique with this European-type lift is the removal of the lowest hanging tissue. The antiquated American-type skin lift does not remove the low-hanging tissue, and this tissue continues to sag further over time. The American-type skin lifts are still by far the most-utilized in this country, and often result in obvious horizontal scarring.  Amazingly, the European technique eliminates most, if not all, of the long horizontal scarring that occurs in the crease below the breast.  This patient has 420 cc implants on both sides and is seen here four months after her surgery. After undergoing bilateral subpectoral augmentation with European-type full breast lift and small reduction, she has a lasting result with reduced scarring.  Additionally, notice the dramatic decrease of skin-on-skin contact beneath the breast.
