Case Study: Breast Lift Without Implants

Breast Lift without implant – Case 1

This case demonstrates my technique of breast lift and auto-augmentation. In this technique I shave the skin off the saggiest breast tissue and then during the reconfiguration and lifting process incorporate these elements around the central lifted mount thereby creating a breast which appears to have an implant but is all her own breast! A fine cosmetic result.


Breast Lift without implant – Case 2

I know you won’t believe this but there is no implant here.

This patient underwent my version of auto-augmentation mastopexy (breast lift with conservation of patient’s sagging breast tissue) and relocating it to resemble a breast lift with implant.  An amazing result


breast Lift without implant – Case 3

I’ve already had a number of patients in disbelief that these are before and after pictures of the same woman! But they are!

Here the combination of breast lift with auto augmentation (no implant), abdominoplasty/flankplasty with abdominal wall repair, and liposuction of extended hips and upper buttocks (arrows) combine to create a beautifully shaped youthful body. An outstanding transformation from the effects of childbirth, age and gravity!


Breast Lift without implant – Case 4

This case shows how a woman’s body can be transformed to a far more youthful appearance. I have a unique way of doing auto-augmentation; using the excess saggy tissue to create a round full breast. A dramatic result.


Breast Lift without implant – Case 5

Auto augmentation of the breast is a term I use when I take a sagging breast and lift it but use essentially nearly all the sagging volume in a unique way that simulates having an implant. Therefore creating an idealized breast appearance. Here it was combined with lateral liposuction to help eliminate lateral excess.


Breast Lift without implant – Case 6

Have you heard of my technique of auto-augmentation? Here I took a case of wide, flat, sagging breasts, and liposuctioned the perimeter, minimally excised any tissue, took the lateral and medial sagging elements, lifted them internally and sutured it all together to simulate an implant augmentation! The result is a nice C cup breast, full at the top, lifted, and with no lateral excess! A very nice result.


Breast Lift without implant – Case 7

Auto-augmentation means using the patients own breast tissue without an implant to create an implant type look with a breast lift.

I often use a dissolvable internal surgical scaffold to aid in shaping and support. Here is an amazing photo only 4 weeks later. A beautiful result.



Breast Lift without implant – Case 8

Auto-augmentation mastopexy means saving as much breast as possible, eliminating only skin excess, and then turning the saggiest tissue up and around the central mound. The results shown here are remarkable! No implants whatsoever.


Breast Lift without implant – Case 9

The concept of auto-augmentation breast lift means saving and relocating all of the saggy breast tissue along with remnants of saggy skin to act as internal sling, thus creating a breast shape like an augmentation but without the implant. Here is a great example, hard to tell there is no implant!


Breast Lift without implant – Case 10

Dramatically saggy deflated breasts are generally undesirable, so a lift can help recapture some of the youth a patient’s body had prior to pregnancies. Shown only 12 weeks after surgery, this patient was very happy with her outcome without using any implants.
