Mastopexy is usually performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, and can utilize several different incision options. The most appropriate incision will be determined by a number of different factors, including the patient’s breast size and shape, degree of sagging, size and position of the nipples, amount of excess skin, skin quality and more. Some of the most commonly used incisions for breast lift include:
With either type of incision, Dr. Chaudhari will lift and reshape the breast tissue, forming a new, rejuvenated contour. The nipple and areola are moved to a higher location on the breast. Finally, the excess breast skin that results from poor elasticity is trimmed and stitches are placed deep throughout the breast tissue to support the lifted breasts.
