Round Or Donut Mastopexy Beverly Hills

Posted On: July 01, 2016 Author: The Office of Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Areolar Reduction, Breast Augmentation, Breast Implants, Breast Lift, Breast topics

The female patient presented was looking to improve her overall breast appearance as well as reduce her areolas. During her consultation, she expressed that she wanted to increase the volume of her breasts as well as give them a slight lift. She also was concerned about the size of her areolas and wanted to see if they could be reduced a little. After discussing her expectation, we agreed to an augmentation, mastopexy, and slight reduction to the areolas.

During her surgery, I performed a round or “donut” mastopexy, which requires two incisions around the areola. The first incision is much like it is for a normal breast augmentation, and the other incision is made a little wider around the first. The skin between the two circles is then removed and the resized areola is stitched into a higher position on the breast. The larger circle is gathered into the areola in a”purse-string.” During the procedure, I placed 435cc high-profile saline breast implants and filled the right breast implant to 450cc and filled the left breast implant to 470cc.

As you can see from the six-week post-op photo, she has achieved nice volume, symmetrical balance, and a reduced areola.
