Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift (Palo Alto)
This woman has undertaken a major transformation in her life. She determined to have gastric bypass surgery several years ago, and has since lost approximately 130 pounds. With the great loss of weight, comes a resulting loss of volume, everywhere in the body, leaving loose and sagging skin.
This patient came to Dr. Lepore, to address some of these issues. She wished to begin with her breasts. She noted the sagging, 'deflated' appearance. She decided to undergo Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift surgeries. For her augmentation, she chose to have silicone gel, form stable implants, the so-called "gummy bear breast implants." These were inserted subglandularly. She also had a Donut Mastopexy, a breast lift in which the inciscions are made around the areola.(* Note that the "highlighted" appearance of the areola, the reddish circle, is the incision area. The "after" photos are taken not long after the surgery. In time, months to a year or more, this scar line will fade.)
The patient is now very pleased with the restored volume of her breasts, and their lifted appearance, to a more normal position. She intends to return, to discuss her options for further restoration of her abdomen.
