Case-6697

Details:

Breast Augmentation and lifting in a when you are in your fifties.

Procedure

Bilateral Breast Augmentation with Bilateral Breast Lift

Procedure Notes:  

This is a 56 year old professional woman who was concerned about the small size and increased laxity of her breasts.  Following nursing of her children, she noticed a decrease in breast volume and had wanted to address this concern for several years.  She found it difficult fitting into clothing.  The patient wanted  to have both a breast lift and breast augmentation to achieve a similar look to her breasts as they had looked prior to having children.  

She stressed that she did not want to be too big and did not want it to be noticeable when she walked into a room.
 
The breast augmentation and lift surgery was performed using intravenous sedation anesthesia avoiding general anesthesia.  Intercostal nerve blocks were used to ensure the surgery be pain free as possible and to keep the patient  comfortable  following the procedure.
 
Breast implant sizers were used in the operating room to help determine the implant size that would best artistically match the patient’s body proportions and have it be SAFE.  Her right breast was smaller and was augmented using a 286cc silicone gel-filled Natrelle® Style 15 implant and her left breast was larger and augmented using a 265cc silicone gel-filled Natrelle® Style 15 implant.  The implants were placed under the muscle.  Her breasts were lifted using a periareolar incision, a circular incision which traces the edge of the areola to hide the incision.

Dr. Sullivan is happy to announce he has resumed elective surgeries!

We are also now seeing patients in the office again following all guidelines and taking every precaution possible to provide an incredibly safe environment for all patients and staff.

Due to cases being moved back from the spring and the pent up demand for our services we are expecting to be FULLY booked out for the summer soon, limited spots are available. If you have any interest in summer surgery or services, please call us or contact us immediately so we can help you coordinate this before those spots become unavailable. Further, if you are seeking any services or surgery in 2020, we are anticipating an increase in price soon to deal with operating room fee increases.

We are here for any surgical or cosmetic questions you may have. Get in touch with us to see if there is any way we can help you.

We will continue to be here virtually for all those who prefer to have consultations in the comfort of their home.

Our online virtual consultations have been a very popular option for patients from as far away as Asia as well as usual coast to coast patients from New York to California, Oregon to Florida and many in New England.

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.

We welcome you. Please come - we are open & here for you. If you would like to have a VIRTUAL CONSULTATION or an IN PERSON CONSULTATION or have any questions at all, please give us a call at 401-214-5121 or contact us via the website to set up your virtual consultation today!
