Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This woman in her mid-30s wanted solutions to multiple concerns she was having about the appearance of her breasts: loss of volume (breast involution) and sagging (ptosis).
After a consultation with Dr. Lepore, she decided to proceed with both breast augmentation and breast lift in his San Jose surgery center. Because lax skin was causing the patient's breast sagging, Dr. Lepore recommended against breast augmentation alone.
Dr. Lepore explained the various approaches possible and our patient chose the following: breast augmentation with moderate profile silicone breast implants (265cc) and a short-scar anchor lift. Among breast lift techniques, this one provides a good, moderate lift, while leaving a "shorter scar." (The standard, so-called "anchor lift" usually produces the greatest amount of lift with a longer incision and scar)
In this case, our patient is very pleased with the choices she made, and the results of her combined procedures.
