Breast correction (mastopexy)
Breast size increases already from the beginning of pregnancy, and in the process of breastfeeding it becomes heavier, the skin stretches. At the same time, the bundles that support it are no longer able to cope with their task as well as before. There is ptosis of the breast, that is, its omission. How noticeable this will be depends on the initial state of the breast before pregnancy and childbirth. The younger the woman, the breast tissue is more elastic. The more trained the pectoral muscles, the “higher” the chest. After the completion of lactation, the breast returns to its former size, but its elasticity is often lost. In this case, it makes sense to contact a plastic surgeon. Help to correct the deformation of the breast can only mastopexy – surgery for breast lift.
Indications: Omission and change in the shape of the breast.
Contraindications: If you are planning to have another child, the operation is better to be postponed, since the breast will increase again during pregnancy and lactation.
What is the essence of the operation?
There are several ways to perform mastopexy. However, regardless of which method is used, the essence of the operation is that the surgeon moves the nipple to another place, while removing some of the excess skin. The difference between the methods of mastopexy lies in the shape of the incision and the place of its application. With full mastopexy, an incision is made, having the form of an anchor beginning at the base of the areola. Full mastopexy is the most traumatic type of breast lift surgery and is indicated for strong forms of breast deformity. Other types of mastopexy, for example, sickle, are less traumatic, require for the implementation of the application of cuts of small length and are used for women with unexpressed deformation. The operation takes about two hours; it is performed under general anesthesia. After the operation, special cosmetic stitches are placed, which leave behind almost imperceptible scars.
