Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
The surgery to correct the drooping breasts is called Mastopexy. It is a similar procedure as Breast reduction .It is performed in breasts, which are not to large but have sagged producing a situation called Breast Ptosis. In this condition the nipple areola complex and in fact the whole breast is comes down below normal level..This surgery is also combined with implants somrtime when there is requirement of enhancement of volume.
Procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the degree of ptosis, surgical procedure is planned. Some skin excision is planned for shifting of nipple areola complex to a superior level. The glandular tissue is plicated into a more conical shape.
Post Op: Post op care is much same like reduction mammaplasty but the recovery is significantly faster because it is less extensive procedure.
