Breast Augmentation Revision w/ Areolar Lift Beverly Hills
Some women seeking breast revision surgery are also seeking “breast reshaping” and/or “breast lifting” procedures. The circum-areolar breast lifting technique (also known as the Benelli procedure) lifts and reshapes moderately droopy breasts during a breast augmentation without the need for placement of a vertical scar on the breast mound. Dr. Motykie has vast experience in combining these procedures and he has engineered a technique that provides consistent results while significantly reducing the resulting scar that surrounds the areola. The Benelli technique can also be useful for areolar reduction, tubular breast deformity correction, asymmetry improvement, “double bubble” correction, “snoop dog” correction and overall improvement in breast shape during revision breast augmentation surgery.
Performing simultaneous revision augmentation and periareolar mastopexy is effective in improving breast shape, correcting breast deformities, enhancing breast volume and repositioning the nipple. This approach is effective because augmentation of the breast with an implant fills out the breast while the periareolar mastopexy removes any remaining skin and repositions the nipple higher on the breast mound. The Benelli portion of the procedure is critical in order to prevent the creation of large droopy breasts and the avoidance of developing a “double bubble” or “snoopy dog” deformity which can develop if a breast augmentation is attempted by itself in breasts that have droopiness prior to surgery. Patients should be careful not to fall victim to the common myth that a breast implant can lift a breast by itself. Let me be clear on this point. An implant CANNOT lift a breast by itself. If an implant is placed into a droopy breast it will only create a large droopy breast. If breasts are droopy prior to surgery, a lift technique must be added in order to reshape the breast mound and lift the areola in order to avoid the creation of large droopy breasts during the recovery process.
During your consultation, Dr Motykie will address your desires from breast augmentation with a Circum-areolar lift and he will give you a clearer understanding of how revision surgery may best be able to meet your own needs and expectations. Dr Motykie will also give you an opportunity to ask him any question you may have about revision breast surgery as well as its possible benefits in your particular case. When going into your consultation, it is wise to come with questions written down and have a general understanding of the overall procedure so you can be prepared to learn as much as possible during your visit with Dr Motykie. Sometime during your consultation Dr Motykie may have you look through a “breast book” that contains numerous photographs of different types, shapes and sizes of breasts in order to help you determine what type of breast you personally find attractive as well as which type of implant and revision augmentation technique may best help you to achieve your desired outcome from surgery. You are also encouraged to bring in photographs you may have obtained on your own from magazines or various internet websites which show the desired “look” you would like to achieve from surgery. Dr Motykie has found that looking through these types of photographs as well as reviewing his personal breast augmentation portfolio is much more helpful in determining the true breast size and shape you desire from surgery rather than techniques that employ stuffing bras with various filler materials, trying on misleading sizing implants or undergoing visual imaging techniques.
There are a great deal of variables to consider when undergoing a breast augmentation so it is important to make sure that your desires from surgery our expressed to your surgeon as well as making certain that your surgeon is listening to you and understands exactly the look, shape and size breasts you want to achieve from surgery. If this is not done effectively, your desired results from surgery and your surgeons desired results from surgery may not match and you may end up with the breasts the surgeon wanted to create and not the breasts you had envisioned from surgery. This is why Dr Motykie spends a great deal of time talking to you about your specific goals from surgery as well as having your look through photographs of different breast surgery results. By the conclusion of your consultation, the possible options available to you for your revision breast surgery should be discussed and will typically include: the types, shapes and sizes of currently available breasts implants, implant pocket placement and your breast reshaping or lifting procedure.
