• Mastopexy

    Breast Lift

     

    One alternative to breast implants procedures that most women don’t consider is mastopexy, more commonly called a breast lift. It’s a lot less invasive, so recovery time isn’t much of an issue, and it’s a great procedure for any woman that might be on the fence about plastic surgery. With that being said, it’s still surgery—and it’s something you should think about carefully.

     

    Ideal candidates for Breast Lift Surgery

     

    Anyone considering a mastopexy should consult with a physician for good measure—but it’s usually a procedure for anyone looking to restore shape and perkiness to the chest. What’s great about a mastopexy is that it can restore shapeliness to the breasts without being very invasive at all. So, if you’re looking for a surgery that won’t keep in you in bed for weeks, this is definitely the way to go.

    Possible risks and complications

     

    Basically, any woman that wants to add either shape or perkiness to their breasts should consider this procedure. Of course, there are some complications and risks that you’ll want to go over your physician with. In fact, every time a patient goes into surgery there are risks involved—and with mastopexy, it’s no different. Loss of feeling in the breast and nipple area can be a result of surgery, but it’s uncommon. And, with most procedures that involve the breasts, scars are likely to occur.

     

    The Procedure

     

    The procedure is basic as far as plastic surgery goes. Mastopexy consists of removing extra skin and fat from the breasts—to the restore shape and lift. Due to the removal of skin, scars are common, but they’re not likely to be noticeable. If you’re concerned about scarring or loss of feeling in the breasts, it’s always a good idea to go over the procedure with your doctor.

     

    The Recovery Process and Your New Look

     

    Recovery time from a mastopexy isn’t as long or as rigorous as other procedures, but a typical patient won’t be fully healed until 3-4 weeks after the operation. While initial discomfort and soreness will persist in the few days after surgery, it shouldn’t last more than a week or two. Either way, recovery time shouldn’t detract from the amazing results of your mastopexy.
