This 38-year-old woman noted drooping in her breasts since she got older. She desired slightly smaller breasts with more upper pole fullness. She underwent bilateral mastopexy with only a small amount of removal of breast tissue and mostly just excess skin. She noted significant improvements in shape with smaller breasts and more fullness Patients desiring mastopexy are concerned about the large areolas and low position of the breasts. Elevation of the nipple and narrowing of the breast width are key elements of this procedure. If much larger breasts or significant upper pole volume is desired, implants are necessary. If the patient is happy with her cup size, Mastopexy alone is all that is needed. Some degree of cup size reduction is often achieved . Patients always wish to have shape change without scarring but this is not always possible as skin removal is necessary in many cases to reshape the breast.
