Dr. Paul M. Parker understands there are different causes of sagging breasts. He helps his New Jersey breast lift patients reclaim youth with a limited incision breast lift. He recommends a unique surgery for 4 different types of breast lift patients.
During an initial consultation with a patient seeking a breast lift in New Jersey, Dr. Parker will have the patient stand in front of a mirror and tell him exactly what she dislikes about her breasts. He then evaluates the amount of existing breast tissue, the degree of sagging as well as the location of the nipple to determine proper treatment.
“There are four basic categories in which I will evaluate the breasts to determine if a breast lift is necessary,” says Dr. Parker. “One will have insufficient volume but no sag. The second will have insufficient volume as well sagging. The third will have sufficient volume but the breasts sag. The fourth will have breasts larger than the patient would like and they have sagged. All of these will be treated differently.”
4 Unique Surgical Answers to Dr. Parker’s Breast Lift Patients:
1) For the patient with insufficient volume and no sagging, breast augmentation alone will restore the missing volume.
2) For the patient with insufficient volume and sagging, insertion of a breast implant to restore volume and a limited incision breast lift, or mastopexy, will re-shape the breast.
3) For the patient with sufficient volume and sagging, a breast lift alone will give the breast a more youthful shape.
4) For the patient with too much volume and sagging, a limited incision breast reduction will adjust the volume appropriately and also provide a lift to the breast.
New Jersey breast lift patients who come to The Parker Center usually range in age from mid 20’s to mid 50’s. Their breasts have sagged after pregnancy, weight loss or sometimes from congenital sagging of the breasts. Sagging breasts make a patient look and feel older than she is.
“Not too long ago, I operated on a woman in her late 60’s who is very active and in great shape. She didn’t like the droopiness of her breasts, so I gave her a limited incision lift and added implants,” says Dr. Parker. “She recovered rapidly, as if she were in her 30’s, and is a great example of someone whose chronological age conflicts with her physiological and mental age. She loves the way she looks and feels—much younger than her stated age.”
Dr. Parker and his staff spend a great deal of time with each patient evaluating, educating and getting to know the individual. “Options for the type of breast lift procedure are discussed in detail. If implants are to be used to restore volume, a Sizing and Shaping Session is performed to help the patient determine with which type and size implant she will be most comfortable. Dr. Parker’s Nurse Educator will meet with the patient again before surgery to review pre and postoperative instructions. The Parker Center’s highly acclaimed website, parkercenter.net, serves as a 24/7 educational tool for the practice’s patients as well. At the Parker Center, patient education is at the forefront of an extremely high degree of patient satisfaction.
Due to the Parker Center’s Rapid Recovery Program, patients following New Jersey breast lift surgery, recover quickly and painlessly from the procedure, returning to the normal activities of daily living within several days.
In carefully observing his patients recovery from these surgeries, New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Parker has been gratified by not only the physical transformation of his patients now with more youthful, uplifted breasts, but also their positive emotional feelings of improved self esteem and body image.
