Candidacy for Breast Augmentation Mastopexy
Droopy breasts or loss of breast volume can happen to anyone. However, it usually occurs right after childbirth, breastfeeding, or losing considerable weight. It is possible that your breasts lose their shape or perkiness because of age related factors. You may be an excellent candidate for breast augmentation mastopexy plastic surgery if you seek to address the following:
- Flattened or deflated breasts
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Areolas on the breasts are disproportionately stretched
- Nipple falling below the breast fold
- Nipple point downwards
What Does the Procedure Involve?
Your plastic surgeon will help you choose the right size and type of breast implants during the pre-operative consultation. Breast augmentation mastopexy is typically performed under general anesthesia. It may take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to complete. This depends greatly on the surgical technique used.
The cosmetic surgeon will create a lollipop incision or an anchor type incision on both breasts. The incision will be around the areolas and from the down end of the areolas to the bust line. This is to create pockets for implant placement. Breast implants are commonly placed beneath the pectoral muscles.
Your surgeon will pull your breast tissues and muscles taut following implant placement. They will excise any excess skin to create a lifted and tighter appearance. The surgeon may also reposition or resize the areolas for a more youthful appearance depending on the customized treatment plan.
Skilled plastic surgeons usually create natural looking results with minimal scarring. You should expect to return home the same day following your breast augmentation mastopexy procedure.
What to Expect After the Surgery?
The shape and size of the breasts will look progressively better as swelling and bruising resolves. The breast tissues will also begin settling into a firmer position. Full results of your breast augmentation mastopexy cosmetic surgery procedure can take anywhere from 6 months to a year to show. By this time, residual scarring should have faded away to thin, white lines.
You should be able to get back to work in about 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery. However, it is important that you refrain from performing any vigorous activities that may cause your incisions to open.
