Simultaneous mastopexy (breast lift) and breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic breast procedure. With this operation, we lift the breast by removing skin and reshaping the breast, while increasing its volume and size.
These two procedures exert opposing forces on the tissues and the skin, so it is necessary to make good planning to avoid complications and problems.
Mastopexy re-introduces a more conical shape to the breast, removing loose skin and repositioning the nipples higher. At the same time, depending on the size you want, a silicone implant will increase the size of the breast.
Dr. Ioannis Giannas performs the Mastopexy surgery with the technique of “vertical small incision”, which has the following advantages:
- the incision in the breast is 50% smaller than the classic incision of the traditional technique; and
- gives a better shape for longer time
What is the appropriate age for surgery?
Breast lift can be done at any age; it does not pose any risk for future pregnancy or poses a problem with breastfeeding.
What kind of anaesthesia is required?
The surgery is under general anaesthesia and it is necessary to stay in the hospital for one night.
Is it painful surgery?
As with all other cosmetic surgeries it is no longer acceptable to be in pain at all.
How long will it take to recover?
Recovery is rapid. After two weeks the wounds have healed and you return to every activity.
