A mother of 1 in her late 30’s who is bothered by a deflated and drooping appearance of her breasts after weight loss and pregnancy. She wanted to be fuller and less droopy in appearance. She is shown before and again, 7 months after augmentation mastopexy ( a breast at the time of breast implant placement.)
Discussion: She is 5 1 ½ and 120 lbs. She had Sientra High strength round smooth cohesive gel 350 cc high profile implants placed in a partial subpectoral position at the time of an inverted T mastopexy. She did not want a larger implant that might draw to much attention in her workplace and likes the natural but fuller look.
