A woman in her early 60’s who is bothered by breast hypertrophy and describes herself as a 36 double D cup. She has had symptoms for many years of neck, back and shoulder pain, grooving and irritation of her shoulders from the bra straps, a rash under the breasts in the summer months, and problems with her posture. She also has fatty deposits in the anterior axilla ( armpit area)
She is shown before and again, 5 months after bilateral breast reduction along with power assisted liposuction using the S.A.F.E. technique ( suction aspiration fat equalization) to the lateral breast and anterior axillary area. Scars typically will continue to fade and improve for the first two years. Her symptoms are gone and she loves the new contour and looks forward to wearing evening dresses the show the upper breast and shoulders without the unsightly bulges in the anterior axilla.
A woman in her early 50’s who wears a 36 DDD bra and is bothered by back pain, shoulder pain, difficulty exercising and postural problems. She is also bothered by axillary lipodystrophy- extra fat in the anterior axilla that makes it difficult for her to wear halter tops or dresses. She is 5’3” and 197 lbs and is shown before and again, just 4 months after bilateral breast reduction with the removal of more than 1300 gms of tissue from each breast as well as Power assisted liposuction of the anterior axilla using the S.A.F.E. technique. (Suction Aspiration Fat Equalization) Scars will typically continue to fade and improve for the first 2 years adfter surgery- she is already thrilled with her result and no longer has problems with back and shoulder pain or her posture. She looks forward to wearing summer dresses that show the top of her breasts and that she could never wear before.
A mother of 2 in her late 30’s who is bothered by the shape of her abdomen and flanks in clothes. She feels like “sponge bob square pants”. She “carried big” with her pregnancies and gained over 60 lbs. She is currently 5’ 10” and 158 lbs. She is shown before and again, nearly 6 months after abdominoplasty combined with External ultrasound assisted/power assisted liposuction of her flanks and back roll. In order to keep her abdominoplasty scar low, in the “thong” position” she has a small vertical scar in the lower abdomen that was previously around her umbilicus and has been pulled lower, but was not able to pulled down entirely below the abdominal scar. The alternative would have been to place the abdominoplasty scar higher where it would have been more visible.
