This 31 year old woman came to us requesting breast augmentation using her own fat. (breast augmentation with fat transfer) She did not want an implant and only wanted a modest ½ cup increase in size if possible. Despite her thin frame, we were able to liposuction her trunk and place 150ml of fat into each breast. She was able to go from an A cup to a full B cup using her own fat and no implant.
Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift San Jose
This is a woman in her mid-40s, who has had children, and is bothered by the current appearance of her breasts. They have lost volume, and she notes some sagging as well. She came to see Dr. Lepore to investigate whether she could see some restored volume, and have her breasts lifted at the same time. After discussions about the various types of breast implants, types of breast lifts, and surgical approaches, our patient decided on the following.
She chose to undergo Breast Augmentation, with silicone gel implants inserted in a transaxillary, subpectoral approach. The implants she chose, are smooth, round, moderate profile, 445cc. She also elected to undergo a Donut Mastopexy, or Breast Lift. In this type of lift, the incisions are made around the areola. The scarring is minimized with the so-called Donut Lift, but our patient also understood, however, that the amount of "lift" that can be achieved with this procedure is more moderate than a 'standard' breast lift would produce.
Both procedures were performed in a single session. Our patient is seen in her After photos, 8 weeks post-surgery. Even at this early date, you can see that the scarring is very discreet, and healing well. She is very pleased with the results of her Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift.
Patient in her early 40s. She wanted more fullness in her breasts, particularly in the upper pole area. To achieve her goals, Dr. Bates performed breast augmentation, with 345cc smooth, round, high profile silicone gel implants- to give her the fullness and projection she hoped for. She's very pleased with her new look.
This is a woman, in her early 20s, who has made a decision about increasing the size of her breasts. She feels that augmenting her B-cup size breasts will 'even out' and enhance her somewhat tall frame. She discussed the different options for Breast Augmentation with Dr. Lepore, and the variety of breast implants available.
After trying on a number of sizes, shapes, and manufacturers' options, she chose a Natrelle Inspira Silicone Gel implant, in a 450cc size. She underwent breast augmentation surgery (transaxial, subpectoral insertion), in our AAAASF-accredited surgical suite,
She is very pleased with her results, shown here 7 weeks post-surgery.
This patient- 40 years old, wanted to enhance her breasts. She was hoping to add fullness to the upper pole of her breasts, as well as adding some projection.
Dr. Bates was able to give her both, with breast augmentation. The silicone gel implants are placed behind the chest muscle; in this case, 385cc smooth, round silicone gel implants. She's very pleased with her new look!
This patient is in her 20s, and wants to improve what she feels is a deflated look of her breasts. She wants volume and lift, as well as a reduction in the size of her areolas. Dr. Maser performed a subglandular breast augmentation, and a so-called 'Donut Lift' - in which the incisions are made around the areola, for a moderate lift, and adjustment of areola size. She has high profile, silicone gel implants, in different sizes to address asymmetry. (385cc on the right- 451cc left. Our patient achieved her goals- and is very happy with her new look.
This young woman, in her 20s, leads a healthy lifestyle and has recently achieved a weight loss of more than 15 pounds. As often happens, she's been having some difficulty reducing and reshaping some "target" areas. When we gain or lose weight, it doesn't always distribute evently, or go where we'd like.
She wanted to discuss her reshaping options with Dr. Lepore. She had goals of increasing her breast size, and removing some of the excess fat in her abdomen, sides (flanks), and inner thighs. She decided to undergo Breast Augmentation surgery, along with Liposuction of multiple areas.
The procedures were performed in one session, in our AAAASF-accredited surgical suite. During surgery, our patient underwent a transaxillary, subpectoral Breast Augmentation. She chose 360cc silicone gel implants - (smooth, round, moderate profile).
The areas liposuctioned, included her upper and lower abdomen, right and left flanks, and both inner thighs. A total of 3,375cc of fat was removed from all areas.
The After photos were taken 8 weeks following surgery. Our patient says she is extremely pleased with her results, and her new body contour.
This woman, in her 40s, wished to 'update' the Breast Augmentation she had over 15 years ago. She was very pleased with her breast aug, but has noted some slight sagging occurring naturally over time. She came to Dr. Lepore to discuss options, and decided on Breast Lift, and Breast Augmentation with Removal and Replacement of her original implants.
During surgery in our AAASF-accredited surgical facility, her original (390cc) Saline Implants were removed, and replaced with Extra High Profile Silicone Implants (650cc). Her Breast Lift, a Donut Mastopexy, was performed with incisions around the areola, a procedure providing a more moderate lift.Our patient is picture in the After photos, 7 weeks post-surgery.

Breast Lift-Short Scar, Breast Augmentation
Breast Lift – Breast Augmentation – Remove & Replace Breast Implants
Patients considering cosmetic breast surgery often tell us they like the look of their breasts-in a bra, but want to have the same appearance (or lift) without one. Often, they will want to achieve the look with Breast Augmentation alone. Sometimes, that can work-but often, it is not the solution. This patient has had saline breast implants for a period of years. She has noticed some sagging of her C to D cup breasts, and wants to replace the current implants with larger, silicone implants. Dr. Lepore advised that switching to a larger size would not produce the Lift she wanted.
After careful consideration, the patient decided to undergo a combination of procedures; short scar Breast Lift, removal of saline implants, Breast Augmentation with high profile silicone implants. (500cc Allergan Natrelle). The after photos were taken about 2 months after the surgery. The patient is very pleased with her choices, and the appearance of her breasts.
