This woman had extremely larger, sagging breasts, a familial trait. She wore a DDD bra. She had gone to a chiropractor for years for treatment of chronic pain involving her back, shoulders, and neck. At surgery, over 4 pounds of breast tissue was removed. This case demonstrates the utility of the vertical technique in treating women with very large breast sizes, maximizing safety and preserving nipple function. After surgery, her nipple position is at the desired level of maximum breast projection, not too high on the breast.
