From Dr. Lampert:
EXPLANT & BREAST LIFT WITH ASYMMETRY CORRECTION: 1 month post op
This charismatic and athletic 34 year old female had breast implants placed in an
attempt to make her asymmetric breasts more symmetrical.
Implant placement did not seem to help and her implants became very painful.
She felt that the implants also made her breasts droop more.
Her breast implant associated pain and larger pendulous breasts interfered with
sleep, exercise and activities of daily living.
She desired to have her implants and removed and never replaced.
Dr. Lampert performed bilateral total intact capsulectomy and mastopexy, with a
slight right sided breast reduction in order to achieve better symmetry.
True perfect symmetry cannot ever be achieved, but we try our best to strive toward
it as a goal.
Breasts are thought of as a "sisters and not twins" and this applies here especially for
This patient had two very different "breast footprints"
Her right shoulder and right breast fold was much lower than her left side.
She also had very different breast base widths.
Regarding the musculoskeletal foundation go the breast, there are limitations that
we plastic surgeons have to accept.
We also must always respect the blood supply to the nipple, especially with revision
breast surgery. Sometimes it can be "A battle between beauty and blood supply".
This was a more challenging case. The patient had to be sit up at least four times
The operation took longer than was initially expected in order to get the best "on
She's very happy already and so are we!
