Breast Lift Surgery / Breast Firming / Mastopexy
Breasts lose firmness and shape with age. Due to weight
fluctuations, pregnancy and breast feeding, skin of breasts
loses elasticity and nipple areola complex droops southwards.
- To raise and reshape sagging breasts
- To get perkier, more youthful, firm breasts with minimum possible scars
Mastopexy is one of the essential components of Mommy makeover
in which overall rejuvenation of a woman is achieved and includes
procedures for breasts, tummy and vagina. These procedures lead to
tremendous boost up in self-confidence, which has been lost after
pregnancies owing to deranged shape.
Procedure: The breast lift (mastopexy) depends on the size and grade of ptosis
(sagging) of the breasts. Please note that scar less lift can be achieved till grade 2 ptosis
i.e. if the nipple level is at or above the lower breast fold. Usually the breast size is also small
along with sagginess and a small breast implant put through axilla or areola, lifts the breast wonderfully without any scar. Even if the size is not small, the periareolar mastopexy can be done where the scar will be around areola only and practically invisible. Please note that if ptosis is grade 3 (nipple hanging below the lower end of breast), then mastopexy necessitates a tennis racket type scar which settles down with time.
Duration of Procedure: About 2-3 hrs.
Anesthesia: Local or General
Recovery Tim: Return to work with in 7-14 days
