This patient presented to me for breast enhancement. We discussed alternatives, including a breast augmentation alone. This would make her breasts larger at the same level where they are now. She wanted her breasts up and youthful. This means a BAR procedure to me (Breast Augmentation and Reduction).

She is seen here after a classic BAR procedure with a lollipop scar and the insertion of 415cc high profile silicone implants placed beneath the muscle and the removal of about 70 grams of saggy breast tissue on both sides.

Check out her outcome relative to the moles on her chest. You can see her breasts have moved up her chest for sure. There is no sag. Surprisingly her nipples are a little on the low side compared to the ideal location but this is because this procedure is so powerful the nipples don’t elevate naturally after surgery like many standard breast procedures. It’s always better to have them lower than higher as they pop out your clothing and it can be a challenge to lower nipples compared to moving them to a higher location.
