what is Mastopexy Surgery?
Mastopexy is a surgical procedure to correct drooping breasts and may be done in conjunction with an augmentation with an implant if required. The nipple-areolar complex is returned to the original, higher, more aesthetic location and the breast mound is reshaped and placed in a more lifted position. This procedure is usually undertaken by women who do not intend to breastfeed in the future.
Drooping breasts is categorized according to severity and results in a low-set nipple and deflated, unattractive breasts. The causes may be ageing, the after-effects of pregnancy or breast-feeding. In a subset known as pseudo-ptosis, the breasts appear droopy but the nipple position is relatively well-preserved.
What is the recovery time to expect?
A mastopexy is carried out on an out-patient basis, meaning that there is no need for an overnight stay. Patients are given sedation and will be asleep through the procedure.
Patients experience minor swelling and bruising which will diminish in a few days. You can resume normal activities in a few days. There are usually no visible scars.
