What is Mastopexy?
Mastopexy is the medical term for breast lift. A breast lift is a procedure designed to improve the appearance and shape of the breast. Breast lifting is typically done to reshape the breast and lift the nipple with little or minimal decrease in breast volume and size. Breast lift surgery is common for women after having children or women who have droopy breasts. The greatest issues to understand about breast lifting are the incisions or scars. You cannot have a lift through an armpit or with hidden incisions. These scars do fade, however the incisions are important to understand when one is considering this surgery.
Dr. Saunders uses the latest techniques for his breast lift surgery incorporating local flaps and inside suturing to create an “internal brassiere.” He believes this technique gives the longest lasting and most natural results.
Is A Breast Lift Painful?
Dr. Saunders is aware that many patients think this surgery is going to be very painful because the breast is a sensual area of the body. Dr. Saunders assures his patients this is not the case at all. Surgery of this type is easier than most. There is surprisingly little pain after a breast lift. Postoperative instructions involve a one-time bandage and a wrap. Many women go back to work quickly.
