Can Shoulder Lengthening and Breast Implant Exchange Be Done During The Same Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi.. how are you? I’m interested in fixing my shoulders with implants, to make them wider. Also in that surgery I would also like to change my breast implants.

Im attaching some pictures so you can see my problem

If possible we can schedule an online meeting so we can discuss everything.

Thank you in advance and hope you can help me 🙂 

A: Thank you for sending your pictures. Admittedly I have never done shoulder lengthening in a female and presumed that I never would….until I saw your pictures and then the desire for it became very clear. Even if you could get even 15mms per side the shoulders would look wider and less rounded. Usually 15mm widening per side in men has proven to be the limit due to the strong shoulder girdle muscles but perhaps in women this is less of a limiting issue??
