Breasts Lifted and Filled to Look Perfect with a Minimal Scar - Saint Louis, MO

I had implants placed submuscularly 13 years ago before I had kids. After having kids, my implants had subsided, I had little breast tissue, and very loose skin. I am thin, fit and very conscious of my appearance. Breast lifts and implant revision surgeries cannot be done by anyone. I wanted a surgeon who had completed a one year cosmetic fellowship after plastic surgery training, and focussed his entire practice on cosmetic surgery. I visited many surgeons for there opinions. Some wanted to stuff a larger implant in and avoid the lift (the easy solution). Most did not have the experience or skill needed to perform a revision, with a lift and a stratus graft. The stratus graft was used to hold the implants up since I was thin with very little tissue in the area. I am 4 months out now and they look great with a scar that is minimal.


That is so great you did such thorough homework to find the right doctor.  Was the scar a small vertical one on the lower side of your breast?  Did you stay the same size with your implants?


Thanks so much for sharing!

If you want a cosmetic procedure done right, you need to find a plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery only. It helps if they have had additional training in cosmetic surgery, such as a cosmetic fellowship. A complex implant revision, with a lift and a stratus graft required an expert.
