Breast Augmentation and Lollipop Lift
Surgery: Benelli Lift
Full Anchor Lift
After losing 75 pounds - I decided to have my breasts "fixed up".
I first had the Augmentation with the Lollipop lift. I decided
on 300/330 cc's of saline, textured implants under the muscle. When
my surgery was done originally, November 2005 - my surgeon had a lot
of reconstruction to do and one of my areolas was left larger than
In January 2006, my plastic surgeon did the Benelli lift with the
permanent purse-string suture to even out the areolas and reduce
them as well as lift my breasts up more. That left me with little
lift at all and some severe puckering that she thought would resolve
itself. However, this never did. And, the areolas stretched right
Then in May of 2006, due to the puckering and
significant scar tissue, she did a revision where she cut completely
around the areola and removed the thick scarring then sewed it back
up. Puckering was still there and so was scarring. I went back to
her in September 2006 and she had seen that my boobs, again, had
drooped and said she recommended the full Anchor lift. Probably what
we should have done in the first place but who knew??
On my 40th birthday I had a full Anchor lift and couldn't be
happier. I see no puckering whatsoever. With the Benelli the
puckering was there right away. For me, even though this has been a
long process, my surgeon was never satisfied with the outcome and I
was only charged the anesthesia charge for my final Anchor lift. I
was lucky to have her and always felt comfortable. I never had
to say - hey, I want this fixed. She knew things weren't right and
offered to fix them. I did seek another consultation though just for
my piece of mind.
This has been a long process but well worth it. My suggestions
to anyone seeking cosmetic surgery would be to research, research,
and research, ask questions, join forums, go on multiple
consultations, and make sure you're aware of your surgeon's revision
policy and ultimately, be patient and have reasonable expectations.
My mistake was researching "after" I had my surgery done. I
regret not getting slightly larger implants - but I'm okay with it.
At almost 2 years post op - I've lost another 25 pounds and my boobs
are still in good position.
