BEVERLY HILLS BREAST ASYMMETRY AND GRADE 3 PTOSIS

Posted On: March 24, 2014 Author: Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Asymmetry, Breast Lift, Breast topics

The patient presents with very severe breast asymmetry.  Her breasts are different in size and shape.  Notice the left breast is larger and lower.  There is more skin laxity.  It was decided she would undergo high profile saline implants with two different sizes with a 465 cc high profile placed on the left and a 425 cc high profile placed on the right.  She underwent a bilateral formal mastopexy.  Her postoperative results show that the cleavage is excellent, the inframammary folds are even and the nipple positions are quite symmetric.  The volume of her breasts in a bra is now quite even.  There is a little bit of flattening in the left upper pole, but this is due to her thoracic cavity preoperatively and cannot be corrected completely.  The patient has maintained Bio Corneum twice a day for the last six weeks, regular underwire bra and a Dr. Linder bra at night for sleep.

Correcting breast asymmetry is significantly easier with saline implants because they can be filled to different amounts and the ability to correct is more apparent.  Also notice her bra bulge greatly reduced, right greater than left, softening the right lateral breast tissue and the left bra bulge.
