Yes! I have patients every week asking whether I do breast and body contouring, too, as my website and social media is being updated.

Here is a sneak peek at a recent patient 4 weeks after a fleur-de-lis tummy tuck and mastopexy.

She was interested in increasing her cup size to go with her lift, without use of an implant. Targeted liposuction was done at her waist and flanks, and this fat then transferred to her breasts for a beautiful and natural lift and fill.

Seams and scars are necessary with any surgery to tailor the skin. A bespoke plan is designed for each and every person based on individual goals and anatomy.

At 4 weeks, she can now return to light cardio with her Peloton, and at 6 weeks return to full weights!

This woman wanted a lift and reshaping of her breasts.

As with most of my reduction and lifts, a superomedial pedicle is used. This has reliable blood flow, and often blood flow from other major sources including the intercostal perforators from the chest wall and lateral perforators can be preserved to minimize wound healing problems.

The skin pattern depends on the amount of skin that needs to be removed, though an inverted-T (aka anchor aka Wise pattern) skin excision gives predictable control of the vertical and horizontal skin excess.

Further volume reduction and shaping can be controlled with liposuction.

Drains are sometimes used to help with postoperative swelling and discomfort with larger reductions and/or when a fair amount of liposuction is performed.

She is seen at 1 month post-op.

An augmentation/mastopexy is offered when goals include both breast lift surgery and breast volume maintenance or augmentation.

The further the nipple/areola needs to be raised to reach the goal position, the higher chance of wanting a revision (~30% in some series), or even planning a 2-stage surgery from the outset.

Here, a modest 250cc implant placed under the muscle added upper pole fullness while avoiding an “overdone” look.

A tummy tuck was also done to remove excess skin from the lower abdomen and tighten the abdominal wall.

She is seen at 4 weeks post-op, with scars and swelling continuing to improve every day!

Breast lift and reduction are related surgeries with a lot of overlap, tailored to each patient’s anatomy and goals.

Here, baseline asymmetry was improved, and the weight and downward pull of her breasts made lighter.

It’s always fun when patients tell me they get to go without a bra now (though I have to remind them that gravity and time will win eventually!).

Essentially all breast reductions include a lift, raising the nipple/areola to a more centered position on the breast.

In my hands, a superomedial pedicle combined with a Wise (inverted-T) pattern skin excision gives a reliable outcome with excellent blood flow and sensation for the nipple and areola.

Selective liposuction can contour the lateral breast without needing to directly lift it all away from the chest, also helping to maintain your circulation and sensation. Wound healing complications have also reduced tremendously since I modified my technique.

Immediate breast reduction/lift with trunk liposuction.

The goal was primarily to help reduce neck and back shoulder pain, and also to improve mobility and comfort.

Many of our younger patients also note a lot of unwanted attention and negative assumptions about promiscuity.

Here, 4 pounds of breast tissue was removed, and another 7.5 pounds was liposuctioned from her trunk.

Despite all the surgery, she could immediately feel the improvement, and was looking forward to shopping for some new clothes!

This patient had large breasts since puberty, with the weight of her breasts causing significant neck pain, back pain, and rashes under her breasts. A reduction and lift (mastopexy) go hand in hand as an aesthetic and reconstructive procedure, to remove several pounds of extra weight, while leaving a volume and shape she felt happy and comfortable with.

Breast reconstruction is a core part of plastic surgery that I enjoy more than I expected. Here, a previous partial mastectomy and radiation scar left a deep depression and significant asymmetry in shape and volume.

Revision of the scar with lift and repair of the underlying breast on the right, was matched with a mastopexy (breast lift on the left) to give improved symmetry and comfort, both when trying to buy bras and other clothes, and also out of clothes.

Fat grafting is a nice adjunct for balancing volume. The silver lining in the breast cancer journey is this chance to liposuction fat from stubborn area (like the trunk or thighs) and reposition it to the breasts.

Fat grafting is useful for patients who prefer not to have breast implants. It is also useful for patients with implants, who have thin skin envelopes and would like more camouflage/coverage of the implants.

She is seen here at 1 month post-op, with her scars fading well.

Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. With heavier breasts that have fallen over time, or after a large amount of weight loss, a lift and reduction can help to relieve neck and back strain and pain.

The steri-strips are often still on at this 1-month mark as patients take their time letting their body heal.

After these come off, we usually recommend silicone tape (all brands I’ve seen seem to work just about as well as all the others).

The silicone tape has the best scientific evidence for improving scar quality and speeding up the time to a mature, flat scar.
