Breast Lift / Mastopexy: Case 15 (13457)
Breast Lift / Mastopexy: Case 15 (13457) This 49 year old woman was referred by a friend of our practice for breast and body contouring. She asked Dr. Graham to "put my breasts back where they used to be." She wanted a reduction or lift. She was 5'6" and 135#, wearing a 38 D bra (which didn't fit well). Her left breast was naturally larger than her right. She had breast fed several children. She had breast ptosis, meaning they sagged down onto her upper abdomen. We recommended a breast lift (mastopexy) only on the right and lift plus a small reduction on the left, to improve symmetry. No breast volume was removed from the right, only loose skin.
We also performed a limited abdominoplasty: these procedures together are often called a "Mommy-Makeover." After healing she wore a 36 C-D bra and had better posture and abdominal tone.
