The Alexandra Breast Lift : this #scarless #breastlift was named after my patient Alexandra. She wanted a lift without scars but she really needed a more aggressive inverted T lift with an anchor scar. So she pushed me and pushed me to think #outsideofthebox. The #alexandrabreastlift is a hybrid breast lift: a #circumareolarmastopexy or #benelli mastopexy on the outside skin, (incision just around areola ) combined with an #invertedT Lift on the breast tissue on the inside. This patient had old implants in for over 10 years. Her breast tissue was starting to droop over her implants. She needed to exchange her implants and wanted to be slightly larger. Other #plasticsurgeon recommend an inverted T (anchor scar) or a #lollipop scar. She did not want those very visible scars. We performed the Alexandra Hybrid breastlift and implant exchange . The breast tissue was first lifted with an inverted T method on the inside The circumareolar mastopexy Is then performed on the skin on the outside. This is a #minimally invasive #breastlift technique that is very difficult to do well and it is why a lot of plasticsurgeons don’t like to do it. The textbook of #plasticsurgery says you can only move the nipple upward by no more than 2 to 3 cm. Any more than that would create excessive skin wound edge that has to be tailored into the circumference of the areola causing too much unsightly pleating in the skin. It’s also hard to make the areola round due to tension and the breast tend to be flattened out and the scars can be thick and wide. However, I love this technique and have #perfected it over the past 17 years. We lifted her nipples by 5-6 cm. The areolas are #perfectly round and #symmetrical. The scars are hardly visible. Best of all, she retained full #sensation of her nipples. I #love making my patients #happy you can see her uncensored #beforeandafter on YOU TUBE: #kaoplasticsurgery channel #breastwisperer #breastaugmentation #breastenhancement #beforeandafter #plasticsurgery #breastrevision #notaonetrickpony
