When performing a mastopexy, or breast lift, the breasts are reshaped by removing excess skin, replacing the areola, and reshaping the gland.
- Ptosis or sagging breasts
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Falling areola
The surgical intervention
Depending on the indications, several incisions are made, ranging from a single incision around the areola to an inverted T-shaped scar.
- The gland is resuspended and reshaped. The excess skin is removed.
- The threads used are under the skin and dissolve naturally.
- No drain is required and the patient is to wear a sports bra for 4 to 6 weeks.
Patients will then have more aesthetic breasts. In order to be fully satisfied, a period of 3 to 6 months is necessary for the tissues to regain their suppleness and for the scars to fade.
