Breast Lift Mastopexy Procedure
Breast lift is a procedure for lifting and reshaping sagging breasts. It is performed in an outpatient clinic under general anesthesia.
Excess skin is removed from the breast by making an anchor shaped incision starting above the nipple. The nipple and areola are moved up into the position where the skin was removed. Since no breast tissue is removed, the resulting breast is firmer.
What is a Breast Lift Mastopexy Procedure?
The terms 'breast lift' and 'mastopexy' mean the same thing. A breast lift mastopexy procedure is one that many women have had in order to feel better about themselves. It’s also one of the simpler breast augmentation surgeries in that it doesn’t require implants or any changes to the muscle tissue. A breast lift is what women get when their breasts have changed over time and are now saggy or limp looking. The results of a mastopexy are perky breasts that are all your own.
Why Women Have a Breast Lift Mastopexy Procedure
There are many reasons that a woman will consider a breast lift procedure. There are also many ways that a woman’s breasts can become less youthful and firm. From breastfeeding and pregnancy, which change the shape of breasts dramatically, to weight changes and normal effects of aging, breasts change a lot over a woman’s lifetime.
What it Entails
The mastopexy procedure is the process of removing any excess skin below and around the breast, tightening the tissues, and reshaping the breast to be higher and more firm on the chest. The shape should be natural and comfortable.
Who Can Conduct a Breast Lift Mastopexy Procedure?
Plastic surgeons do this procedure often and most will be comfortable answering your questions and making sure you’re the right type of patient for the surgery. However, you should research your options for a plastic surgeon and only choose someone who is well respected and experienced. Any major surgery should only be done by someone who you can trust, as there can be complications and you want to know you’re in capable hands.
