What is it?
Over time, the effects of gravity and the loss of natural skin elasticity begin to reflect the appearance of a woman's breasts. It is a surgery that aims to reverse the sagging of the breasts (mammary ptosis), repositioning the areola and skin with sagging, raising the breasts to their original position, ensuring symmetry.
The other most common situation is the breast ptosis, which is the sagging breast.
How is it done?
The traditional technique for this procedure results in a scar that surrounds the areola and continues downwards an inverted T shape. Through the incisions are removed excess skin, glandular tissue and fat. Afterwards, breast remodeling and repositioning of the nipples are done, resulting in a firmer consistency and less flaccidity. The conical and rounded shape of the breasts should be sought. Liposuction can be associated to remove fat from the lateral chest wall to the breasts, aiming at a more harmonic final body contour.
New techniques with reduced incisions and smaller scars can be used in selected patients, and their adequacy is evaluated during the consultation. Proper planning and execution are critical to good patient outcome and satisfaction.
