This is a very pleasant 54 year old Mom who did not like the drooping of her breasts and wanted more "perky" breasts with a slight reduction of tissue.

  There are many ways to do this procedure and each case presents itself with varying details that will enable the plastic surgeon and the patient to make the best decision as to the approach.  A glandular pedicle approach was taken with the intent of getting as much projection and youthfulness as possible.  With this in mind, the nipple needed to be raised and the skin envelope of the breast decreased in surface area.  The nipple complex needed to be above the crease and more centralized and smaller/rounder than its pre op presentation.  Just imagine the nipple complex being the cherry on the cake and you will understand the importance of the nipple complex on all breast surgery.  I sometimes will take 30 minutes to get things in place on one breast and if needed another 20 minutes on making the nipple complex as close to ideal as possible.  The beauty is in the details !!

  The patient is seen at two months post op and she is very happy.  You can imagine what happens when you start with the "rock in the sock" breast heaviness and end up with the breast tissue close to the chest.  It is a good analogy to think of extending your arm holding a weight as compared to having your retracted arm holding the same weight.  No flopping (yes, the patients do use this word) around and shifting and hitting the mattress with the pre op presentation.  Tight to the body and a youthful look.
