BREAST DYSPHORIA, INVOLUTIONAL ATROPHY AND ABDOMINAL LAXITY

Screen-Shot-2013-03-20-at-3.05.18-PMThis patient presents with bilateral breast dysphoria, involution upper pole atrophy, abdominal rectus diastasis and lipodystrophy of the iliac crest rolls.  Her before photo shows complete loss of fullness of the upper poles of her breast as well as lipodystrophy of a muffin top and a lower abdominal skin laxity.  The patient underwent bilateral breast augmentation using the dual plane technique, 425 to 460 high profile saline implants through the subpectoral periareolar approach as well as full abdominoplasty with plication of the midline rectus sheath, and tumescent liposuction of the hips.  Her oblique views show beautiful contouring of the hips from smoothing out with the flattening of the rectus muscle and a nice tight midline.  Her upper pole of her breast on frontal views show excellent fullness which was obtained with a high profile smooth saline implant placed in the dual plane positioned through the periareolar approach.  This patient is now six weeks postop and has an excellent result.  Patients with involutional upper pole atrophy do well with high profile implants that give increased upper pole fullness.
