Breast Lift (Mastopexy) surgery is a procedure to raise and reshape breasts that have lost shape and firmness.
Beautiful breasts mean a lot more than big-sized breasts. When the job is given to a qualified cosmetic surgeon, they do not only focus on the size. By using specially tailored techniques that fit the individual's specific needs, surgeons work on creating proportional breasts that will reduce or fully remove the unwanted breast changes that appear due to numerous factors.
Why Should You Choose a Breast Lift Surgery?
Women opt for breast lift surgery for the following reasons:
- Saggy and stretched breasts following pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Breasts that have lost their volume and aesthetics after a significant weight loss
- Breasts that have a shape that the woman finds unattractive and asymmetrical
- Lost or reduced elasticity and bad breast shape because of aging
Loss of skin elasticity, gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can affect the shape and firmness of your breasts. Some patients may also have lost a significant amount of breast volume over time. In such cases, implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift can increase breast volume while also enhancing the shape and position of the breasts.
Mastopexy is done to stretch out the skin, remove excess and reshape the tissue. The position of the areolas and nipples will be enhanced to become more aesthetically pleasing. In some cases, the stretched areolae may also be reduced to create a more proportioned breast.
Types of Breast Lift
As we said, there are many techniques cosmetic surgeons use to lift the breasts in women. The technique used differs depending on a few factors: the patient's breast tissue, personal goals, and excess skin that should be removed.
After a surgeon has established the goal of the individual and the condition of the breasts, they may choose one of the following types of breast lifts:
1. Crescent Breast Lift
This technique is used on women with very little sagging of their breasts. It is done by making a small incision that runs around the top half of the areola's edge.
2. Vertical Breast Lift
The vertical or 'Lollipop' lift is used to correct a sagging that is considered moderate. In this case, the surgeon removes the excess skin to reshape the breasts of the woman. This technique includes two incisions that, interestingly, create a lollipop shape.
3. Peri-Areolar Breast Lift
The peri-areolar or 'Donut' lift is used in cases of mild sagging and for those who want to reduce the size of the areola.
4. Inverted T Breast Lift
Also referred to as the 'Anchor' lift, this is the most dramatic technique for breast correction. In this case, the surgeon makes three incisions to remove the excess skin and the sagging tissues of the woman.
After a breast lift, women will notice a more youthful contour, and the breast will be firmer and more uplifted. Opting for a breast lift adds a more aesthetic shape and firmness to sagging breasts. This not only restores a woman's youth but also help her feel more confident about her feminine proportions.
