PSC Case Files – Avoiding Scars via a Breast Lift with Thoughtful Augmentation


In this PSC Case Files, board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Richard J. Restifo of Orange, Connecticut and Dr. Kristi Hustak of Houston discuss a patient of Dr. Restifo who came in looking for rejuvenation in her breasts. Before consulting with Dr. Restifo, the patient had consulted with a different plastic surgeon who said that her breast situation required a breast lift, or mastopexy. The patient was not enthused by this conclusion as she wanted to avoid scars on her breasts.

Scar avoidance is a common situation that plastic surgeons face. There are conditions where it’s obvious that rejuvenation can happen without a visible scar, and, likewise, there are obvious situations where a visible scar is the only way to get real results. The in between cases are when surgeons show their expertise, as in this case of Dr. Restifo’s. Watch as the two doctors go through his case and identify the markers that suggest they will be able to achieve the patient’s goals without a lift. At the end, Dr. Restifo shares his fantastic final result that also included a mini tummy tuck.
