This case depicts a 55 year old woman who after losing almost 100 pounds had developed sagging skin in the upper arms. Because of the significant skin excess that remained after such dramatic weight loss, liposuction alone was not possible as a method of arm contouring.
Although this procedure involves an incision beginning in the arm pit or axilla and extending down toward the elbow, the results allow individuals to fit into items of clothing in which they could not prior to their surgery.
This case depicts a 52 year old woman who was happy with her breast size, but wished to have more shapely breasts. She underwent a short scar or "lollipop" incision breast lift. No implant was needed to achieve the breast size and shape she ultimately achieved.
The post-operative photographs depict her appearance at 9 months after surgery.
If a woman wished to have only a slightly larger bust size or slightly more fullness in the upper half of the breast, then a small implant may be added at the same time that the breast lift is performed.
This case depicts a 37 year old woman who had borne one child and had noted that her breasts had begun to sag and develop a deflated appearance.
She underwent a vertical or "lollipop" incision breast lift along with placement of 300 cc smooth, round saline implants beneath the pectoralis muscles. Her post-operative photographs depict her appearance approximately one year after surgery.
This case study also demonstrates how the nipple and areolar positions located too low and too close to the midline in this case, can be improved as part of the procedure.
This case depicts a 24 year old woman with a tuberous breast deformity who underwent breast augmentation with 330 cc smooth, round, saline implants placed beneath the pectoralis muscles via a periareolar approach.
Her areolas were reduced simultaneously, necessitating an incision completely around the perimeter of the areola.The post-operative photographs depict her appearance at two weeks after surgery.
