I.D.E.A.L.® Breast Lift for Augmentation/Mastopexy

With his innovative staple-first technique for moderately to severely ptotic breasts, Dr. Eisenberg tailor tacks the breast tissues together in order to previsualize the final results – prior to making an incision and removing the excess stretched skin. This approach takes the guesswork out of how much tissue needs to be resected and permits a one-step en bloc resection, regardless of degree of ptosis or implant size. It simplifies a very challenging breast lift with implants procedure.

The technique was first published in the Fall 2009 issue of the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery; in April 2012 it appeared in the Innovative Techniques section of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the journal of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Participates will learn how to:

  • Correct even the most severe ptosis
  • Adjust for any asymmetry of the breast
  • Create symmetry in one simple step
  • Produce maximum lift and tightening without compromising circulation to the tissues
  • Have the confidence to do the procedure regardless of implant size

Breast Augmentation Gems: Minimizing Complications, Maximizing Results

Dr. Eisenberg will demonstrate his technique and share insights gleaned from his experience with over 7,000 submuscular breast augmentations – from pre-surgical planning to intraoperative techniques to post-operative management.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Choose implant/cup size
  • Understand the advantages of saline vs. silicone implants
  • Do surgical markings using relevant anatomy
  • Choose the incision, specifically the advantages of the inframammary incision and placement in the submuscular dual plane
  • Reduce operative time and complications

Instruction highlights:

  • Close-up observation of live surgeries in a hospital operating roomSimulation with a hands-on surrogate model
  • Mock patient consultations
  • Patient selection and management
  • Ample time for questions and answers
  • Tuition includes the Staple-First DVD

teddiscIn his instructional video, Dr. Eisenberg performs and narrates the live surgery step by step. Chapters include preoperative markings, bilateral submuscular breast augmentation with saline implants, mastopexy stapling, new nipple and stapling markings, staple removal and deepithelialization, reapproximation of tissues, and final closure and dressings.

“Dr. Eisenberg’s video was easy to follow. I’ve introduced his elegant technique into my own practice, and my revision rate has dropped dramatically.”
