CASE STUDY
“TUBULAR BREAST, BREAST ASYMMETRY AND GRADE 2 PTOSIS”

A patient presented recently with severe tubular breast deformity on the right, grade 2 ptosis on the left and asymmetric breasts.  She desired implants, however, was too young at the time to undergo a breast lift and declined to have any scarring.  The breasts were corrected by placing implants of slightly fills, 330 filled to 400 on the right, 330 filled to 380 on the larger left side in the dual plane.  A breast lift was not required, as the pocket was made very conservative laterally beyond the lateral border of the areola.  The implants were placed in a very tight and conservative manner which allowed for beautiful cleavage as well as allowing for a nice lift on the left breast, as can be seen on the before/after photograph.

This is an excellent example of how in certain cases an internal breast lift can occur if the pocket is not made too large and symmetry can be obtained by over-filling one implant slightly more than the other.  The tubular breast can be released by radial striation of the bottom of the breast, as seen on the right side.  The lifting is beautiful bilaterally and once again, the only scars are under nipple (periareolar approach).
