Breastfeeding and natural aging can cause breasts to droop and lose fullness. Some women are unhappy with the natural aging of their breasts. The aging process can change the way you look and how clothes fit. Mastopexy is a surgical procedure that makes the breast appear more youthful. A breast lift in Bend performed at invMD Plastic Surgery may be the procedure you’ve been looking for.
What does a breast lift do?
Mastopexy removes unwanted breast skin and repositions the nipple to a more youthful level. This is done by rearranging the breast tissue into a smaller skin envelope, giving the illusion of a slightly larger, more youthful breast. Depending on the degree of excess skin, the scar for mastopexy can range from a circular scar around the areola, to a lollipop scar, to an anchor scar.
Mastopexy does not change your breasts’ upper pole fullness. If your goal is more upper pole fullness, you should consider combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation. This is known as augmentation mastopexy.
What are the types of breast lift?
The following are the incision techniques used for breast lifts:
- Circular scar: Around the areola
- Lollipop scar: Around the areola and down to the breast crease
- Anchor scar: Around the areola, down to the breast crease, and along the breast crease
