Patient Details

Case 2 – Super Breast Lift

Reason for consultation with OC Breast Surgery specialist
This 51 year old mom of two grown children was a size 32DDD before having children. She breast fed both of her children, now 20 and 22, and afterwards her breasts sagged. She was not as concerned about the size of her breasts as much as the sagging. She measured 27 cm from her sternal notch to her nipple on her right side and 26.5 cm on her left making her a good candidate for a Super Breast Lift. When the surgeon simulated how her breasts would look lifted, she was happy with them being smaller. She said she would be happy with, “a tiny tank top look”. The surgeon determined she did not need an implant for upper pole fullness as her own breast tissue was adequate to create nice shaped breasts. She did mention to the surgeon that she was very concerned with scars. He explained that there is a trade out for lifted breasts but that the tissues in the breast tend to heal very well, though everyone is different.

Surgical Plan – Super Breast Lift

Pre-Op Sizing
Most breast surgery patients are encouraged to submit photos from the OC Breast Surgery or another plastic surgery website that are nude breasts in a neutral position. Anything in a bathing suit or clothes can distort the size of the breast. We suggest 1-2 photos of breasts that are too small, 1-2 photos of breasts that are too big, and 3-4 photos representing the ideal breast size.

Pre-Op Labs
Blood Test

Day of Surgery
The Super Breast Lift is performed under General Anesthesia. Surgical time is 3 hrs 30 min.

Skin marks were placed with the patient in the sitting position prior to surgery. During surgery, the areola was marked at approximately 4.5 cm in diameter on each side. Then, the breast lift incisions were rechecked for appropriate symmetry. These were approximated with staples with the patient in sitting position. The breasts looked symmetric in shape and volume. Staples were removed. The key difference between the Super Breast Lift and other lifts is the triple dermal tightening technique applied in the nipple areolar dermis, lower breast curve dermis, and lower breast fold dermis. The Super Breast Lift also does not require post-surgical drains, making recovery much easier for the patient.

Post Op
The next day at her first post-op appointment, the patient had minimal swelling with some light colored bruising. She was instructed to wear a She-Fit bra to help support her tissues which were thin and more likely to drop. At six weeks the patient was very happy with how lifted her breasts looked. Her scars were thin and pink and healing very well and will continue to improve up to one year after surgery. Post-op photos taken 6 weeks after surgery.
