What type of lifts Does Dr.Mosca perform?

Dr. Mosca typically performs a full mastopexy in anyone who needs a lift.  This involves the “anchor” scar pattern. If the patient suffers from Tuberous Breast deformity, Dr. Mosca may perform a Benelli, or circumareolar breast lift only and avoid the vertical scar.  

Can breast lift with implants provide symmetrical breasts
  • Symmetry in breasts is always tricky. No part of our bodies are mirror images. Second, while asymmetry in the breasts can be the result of asymmetry in breast size, breast shape or breast position, it can also be the result of asymmetry in the chest wall, the ribs or a scoliosis (a curvature of the spine).
