39 years old patient wanted small to moderate breast enlargement with silicone implants. She also wanted breast lift and correction of size of her areolas; her right areola is larger and 1 cm. lower then left one. We have first placed silicone gel implants size 300 ml. underneath the muscles. Next step was to lift left areola for 0.5 cm and right areola for 1.5 cm... Right areola was reduced in size to match left areola. To achieve all of this in a single surgery we have used incision around areola so called “doughnut incision” or “circum-areolar incision”. This type of breast lift/augmentation may create nice improvement in patients who have lost fullness in the upper breast pole so that their breasts look visually lower than they actually are. Size discrepancy between areolas is improved and nipples are on the same level; her scars are still fresh and immature and will improve in time. Before and 8 months after breast augmentation with silicone implants and breast lift. Same patient in oblique view; notice how flat and long her chest looks due to loss of breast tissue in the upper pole and drop of breast due to gravity and aging. After placement of breast implant her chest looks shorter, fuller with nice slope between chest and upper pole of the breast. Droopy appearance of the deflated breasts is replace with youthful, full and perky breast with nipples placed on the top of the breast mount. Before surgery and 8 months after breast enlargement with silicone gel implants, 350 ml. and small scar breast lift.
