Please, Please, Please, get three or even four opinions. And make sure your doctor is a specialist in the area you want work done on. I used a Dr. who has been on the "Top Doc" lists for years. She even did breast reconstruction. She said I needed an anchor lift for grade 2 ptosis on my right breast. That didn't matter because she didn't take the time to even double check measurements when she put my areola back on, 1.5 inches higher than my left unlifted breast. Needless to say my right areola shows in clothing my right nipple is noticeably higher than the left and the whole thing pops out of bras. On top of all this, I have a bad horizontal scar that is up on my breast and not in the fold. AA cups should never need an anchor lift!! She removed wayyyyy too much skin! I trusted her and she performed an outdated lift on me. The Lejour or vertical lift would have been a better option for me but she didn't do it because I think she doesn't know how. Had 7 month post op with a reconstructive surgeon who actually trained my PS, he said he can fix it and will do a crescent lift on the left for symmetry;but with additional scars above the newly lowered right areola. I don't have the money right now. I'm waiting to hear back from an attorney. Wish me luck.

Didn't tell me she didn't do vertical or short scar techniques, just told me I needed an anchor lift because that's what she knows how to do.
