Campbell Breast Augmentation-Correcting Breast Size and Symmetry.
This patient is a 50 year old woman who came in interested in improving her breast involution. This is a loss of volume which can occur after pregnancy or weight loss. She decided to have a breast augmentation, and donut mastopexy, or breast lift, using approximately a 375 cc implant. In this case, note also the asymmetry, or uneven appearance of the breasts. The combination of procedures will also address this problem.
The surgeryies are usually performed under general anesthesia, and may take about one and a half, to two hours to perform. For this Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift in San Jose, the procedures were done in a single session, in our own fully-accredited surgical suite. Most patients return to regular activity within a week or two after surgery.
This patient was very pleased with the ease of her recovery, and the outcome of her procedure, performed in our San Jose Surgery Center.
Like many women, this patient has noted significant involution (loss of volume) and sagging of her breasts. She chose to have a breast augmentation with implants, as well as a Donut Lift, a type of Breast Lift in which the incisions are made around the areola. A 'donut lift' will produce less scarring than a Standard, or Anchor Lift, but in general, does not provide as much lift. The decision is made individually. In this case, the patient chose the option of Donut Lift, and is very pleased with the results the lift and augmentation have given her.
