When it comes to breast surgery, many women are confused about which operation is right for them. Although every individual’s breasts are different, here is a useful algorithm that will help to serve as a general guideline:
1) Breast volume and fullness are adequate when you wear your bra, but your breasts sag significantly when you take your bra off: MASTOPEXY ALONE IS THE CORRECT OPERATION.
2) Breast volume and fullness are inadequate, whether or not you wear your bra, and your breasts do not sag when you take off your bra: BREAST AUGMENTATION ALONE IS THE CORRECT OPERATION.
3) Breast volume and fullness are inadequate, and your breasts sag when your bra comes off: BREAST AUGMENTATION WITH A MASTOPEXY IS THE CORRECT OPERATION.
4) Breast volume is excessive causing back pain, bra strap grooving, rashes in the breast folds: BREAST REDUCTION IS THE CORRECT OPERATION.
Although this algorithm seems very easy and straightforward, there are many subtleties to breast rejuvenation surgery. If you are not sure which category is right for you, then your next step is to discuss your concerns with Dr. Brenner during your private consultation.
