The appearance of the breasts can change due to a number of factors, most of which are out of one’s control. Aging, pregnancy and a loss of skin elasticity can results in breast ptosis, also known as breast sagging. To treat this, there is the mastopexy procedure.
The mastopexy is a procedure where excess breast tissue is removed to create a lifted, youthful appearance for the breasts. The technique used typically involves incisions around the nipple-areolar complex.
Examples of major techniques are periareolar and vertical, terms which refer to the shape and location of the incisions. The right incision technique will depend on your personal goals and anatomy.
Speak with Dr. Jaime Schwartz to learn more about the mastopexy procedure.
