This 40-year-old health care worker was seeking a breast lift because she felt her breast size was sufficient in a good push-up bra; however, in swimsuits and evening wear her breast tissue had taken on what she referred to as a "pancake" appearance.

The patient had viewed photos of the older style anchor incision and desired minimized scarring. Dr. Malhotra performed a vertical breast lift and was able to maintain her breast volume by removing only extra skin, leaving the breast tissue. In addition, she had liposuction of the tail of the breast that lies under the arm that the patient humorously called her "arm boob".
