SEVERE BREAST ASYMMETRY WITH SKIN LAXITY

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.17.13 AMThis is an excellent case example of a patient that presents with significant skin laxity of the left breast greater than the right. She also has asymmetry with the left breast significantly larger than the right. The patient declined to have any form of significant scars on the breast mound itself except for under the nipple. The operation that I performed included bilateral saline augmentation mammoplasty using high profile saline implants through the dual plane as well as a removal of inferior breast tissue which allowed tightening of the lower pole of the left breast without a vertical scar.

Her postoperative result shows nice symmetry with good cleavage, a decrease in the pectus excavatum that is notable preoperatively, the upper pole shows great fullness and the nipple on the left has come up significantly, although it is not quite as high as the right side. This is an excellent example of asymmetry with skin laxity in which the patient can achieve a reasonable good result using high profile saline implants in a limited pocket without a breast lift.
