Maternity, lactation, weight fluctuations or just … the power of gravity as age grows, causes the phenomenon of droopy breast, which gets worse over time.
This is a common problem, but it is easily and painlessly treated, in a way that has an excellent aesthetic effect.
With Mastopexy, we reshape a droopy breast to a more conical shape, removing the loose skin and repositioning the nipples to a higher level, so it has more youthful appearance. At the same time, we can reduce the size of the halo (the darker skin surrounding the nipple).
The mastopexy can be combined with augmentation of the breasts, when the size is small. The increase in size is made by using silicone implants or fat graft.
Dr. Ioannis Giannas performs the mastopexy procedure with the technique of “vertical small incision”, which has the following advantages:
- The incision on the breast is 50% shorter compared to the classic incision of the traditional technique and (and or type incision)
- 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 a problem with breastfeeding.
What kind of anaesthesia is required?
This is a day care operation, usually done under general anaesthesia. The patient goes home the same evening by taking the appropriate analgesia.
Is it painful surgery?
As with all other cosmetic surgery, it is no longer acceptable to suffer at all. Pain is controlled with mild analgesics.
How long will it take to recover?
Recovery is rapid. Within 2-3 days you return to office work and after two weeks the wounds are healed and you return to full activity.
