Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
In some women, the breasts sag due to certain factors such as gravity, decreased skin elasticity, and breastfeeding. Some of such sagging breasts have an adequate amount of tissue, whereas the tissues of some others are inadequate.
Breasts with an adequate amount of fat become fuller and lifted with the skin procedures.
If the breast has not an adequate amount of tissue (mammary gland and fat), a breast implant is placed for obtaining the required fullness.
Afterward, the lifting procedure is carried out.
Surgeries should be done under general anesthesia.
The surgery may take about 2-3 hours.
While the patient stands, the required location of the nipple and the sections to be removed are marked. The surgery leaves a circular incision scar in the areola, and a fine vertical line extending down from the areola to the under breast line.
These can be accepted in the course of time and can also be unnoticeable within a year.
