Grade 3 Ptosis, Breast Augmentation Enhancement
I evaluated a female patient who expressed that she wanted to lift the shape of the breast as well as increase the volume. During her examination, we discussed her slight tubular deformity and grade 3 ptosis. Grade 3 ptosis is where the nipples lie below the inframammary fold and point downward (see the pre-op photo to the left). After setting her expectation, we scheduled her breast augmentation. During her surgery, we placed 350 cc high-profile saline breast implants under the pectoral muscle.
The post-op photo to the far right is 4 weeks out, and she is extremely happy with the shape and fullness of her breasts.
