Breast Lift with Implants Patient 2**
About This Patient
This 29 year old, whom Dr. Parker had operated several years ago for rhinoplasty, presented with several concerns. She had undergone the insertion of saline breast implants several years ago with another plastic surgeon. She feels they are too large, too heavy and sag. Additionally, she is bothered by the fullness of her lower abdomen and irregular c-section scar. Finally, she is concerned about the fullness in her outer thighs, knees and desires more fullness in her buttocks. The patient is 5′1″ and weighs 129 pounds. At surgery, Dr. Parker removed the patient’s 400cc saline implants, replacing these with 325cc implants. In addition, Dr. Parker performed a vertical mastopexy to lift the patient’s breasts higher on her chest. Additionally, Dr. Parker performed a lipoabdominoplasty along with SAFE liposuction of the lateral thighs (350cc fat removed from each side) and knees (75cc of fat removed from each side). He also injected 300cc of fat into each buttock to lift them and create more fullness. The patient recovered somewhat more slowly than most patients, with a little more pain (5-6 on a scale of 1-10). Following her recovery, the patient is now wearing a size 2 dress from a size 4 before surgery. She is delighted with her attractive figure.
