Breast Lift with Auto-Augmentation Patient 1
This 51 year old patient was referred to Dr. Parker by her gynecologist and her daughter, who is also a patient of Dr. Parker’s. She told Dr. Parker that her breasts have sagged as she has gotten older. She would like them lifted but was adamant about not wanting implants. The patient is 5’5″ tall and weighs 122 pounds. Dr. Parker discussed options with the patient. She elected to have Dr. Parker perform a lollipop breast lift and transfer breast tissue from the sagging lower portion of the breast to the upper portion. By doing this, Dr. Parker was able to fill the deficient upper part of the breast with the patient’s own breast tissue, which restored fullness and avoided inserting an implant. The patient recovered quickly from this procedure on her breasts. She is pleased with their more youthful, uplifted appearance.
New Jersey Breast Lift with Auto-Augmentation
A breast lift with auto-augmentation allows Dr. Parker to both lift sagging breasts and restore fullness without inserting implants. The “auto” in this procedure is short for “autogenous tissue transfer” (meaning using the patient’s own tissue). With auto-augmentation, Dr. Parker can use breast tissue from the sagging lower portion of the breast to restore fullness to the upper portion.
Dr. Parker performs a vertical mastopexy (breast lift) using a “lollipop” incision. During the same operation, he removes tissue from the lower portion of the breast and transfers it to the upper portion, thus adding fullness while lifting the breasts into a more youthful position.
