Breast Lift after Massive Weight Loss

This case was presented at the 59th annual scientific meeting of the California Society of Plastic Surgeons in Squaw Creek, Lake Tahoe, California by Dr. Karen Horton as part of a special Mastopexy Panel of expert surgeons.

This patient is a 45 year old woman who lost 150 pounds on her own, without bariatric surgery!

Her goals were to lift her breasts and achieve a natural shape, without implants.

A breast lift (mastopexy) was done using a superomedial pedicle technique. Additional abdominal contouring surgery was also done at the same time.

Below are her early postoperative photos at two months after surgery:
