53 and 3 Grown Kids - my Time to Spoil Me :) - La Jolla, CA

A friend of mine recommended Dr Brucker who did her breast augmentation and face lift, and I'm glad she did. I have 3 procedures I want done, so I started with the one I'd been wanting the longest - a breast lift. Being older but still athletic, I wanted small breasts and no implants (I was a 32D) so I knew getting the lift and look I wanted would be difficult. But after meeting Dr B and getting his honest feedback and his amazing artistic recommendations, I got my beautiful lift (32C - but I'm only 3 weeks out and am still managing scars) but I am so happy I went to him! Not only are my results beautiful, but his staff is terrific; and the surgery was completely high class with every comfort available. I will be scheduling the other two surgeries with Dr B as soon as possible.

?I got the classic lift….

I got the classic lift using an upside down T incision. So the scars are around the nipple, with a vertical line down to the underside of the breast. The lines are very thin and fading fast (only 7 weeks out now), and most of the scar tissue has subsided as well. I think I'm a couple of months until they're normal and the lines will be faint. As far as ptosis, I never recorded a grade of severity, but I would say they were was moderate or medium severity. I had plenty of chest muscle and fat volume but the skin was too lax. I believe my nipple was below the crease barely.

Oh, and a horizontal scar underneath the breast...

Hi!  I was kind of in the same boat as you--wanted smaller breasts my whole life and I'm athletic.  I was a 32DD and ended up a 32D post-lift.  That was smaller enough for me, since a 32D breast isn't that big (especially since I'm 5'8").  I'd love to know what type of lift you got, and where the scars are.  And also how severe your ptosis was pre-op.

Thank you! :)

Hi TwoPlusOne, Congrats! I got the classic lift using an upside down T incision. So the scars are around the nipple, with a vertical line down to the underside of the breast.
