Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy surgery, can restore your breasts to firmer, perkier more youthful looking breasts. With breast lift surgery, the nipples and areolas are moved to a higher location on the breast mound. The underlying breast tissue is tightened and droopy loose breast skin is excised. Depending on your desires, the nipple areolars may also be reduced at the same time as your breast lift.
At Dr. Corbin’s office there are many breast surgery options to give you the prettiest breasts. Dr. Corbin can perform any type of breast lift. He generally evaluates your individual anatomy and surgery goals to determine which breast lift will give you the patient the best results.
Dr. Corbin performs crescent lifts, Binelli breast lifts, circum areolar breast lifts, Lajour breast lifts, Spair breast lifts or inverted T breast lifts. After evaluating your needs Dr. Corbin tries to suggest a plastic surgery procedure that will give each patient maximum lift with minimal scarring.
If a woman’s breasts are very droopy and the nipples are at or below the breast crease it is very likely they would benefit from a circum vertical breast lift. The saggier the breasts and the lower the location of the nipple or nipples the more detailed the breast lift should be.
Not all Surgeons perform the many different breast lift techniques. Beware of “the too good to be true” surgery options. The majority of the breast lift revisions we correct from other surgeons work is usually due to the patient needing a major breast lift and the surgeon only performed a minor breast lift procedure to try and correct the breast ptosis. Remember, minimal breast lift = minimal results.
For example, a patient who has droopy breasts with nipples at or below the breast crease would not benefit greatly from a crescent lift (A lift with the incision only at the top of the nipple) .If a crescent breast lift is performed on this type of patient with a lot of excess skin , minimal to no breast lift can be expected and because the incision is at the top of the nipple areolar only, generally the nipple will be pulled up slightly and the weight of the breasts can cause the nipples to be misshapen and or to become enlarged, elongated and stretched out.
A better candidate for the crescent lift is a patient who has nipples at different heights and needs a slight lift on one nipple to match the other nipple height or a patient who would benefit from a slight nipple lift on both sides. Sometimes women who have had pregnancies and or breast fed have pseudo ptosis where there is a lot of extra skin, less breast tissue and nipples that sit above the breast crease. These women may also be good candidates for crescent breast lifts with breast augmentations to restore fullness to the breast and give them a more youthful appearance.
The basics on how breast surgery is performed
The mastopexy technique Dr. Corbin will recommend for your breast lift will be based on your breast size and the size and location of your nipple/areola complex. In evaluating your surgical needs Dr. Corbin looks at the degree of your breast ptosis (sagging), the elasticity of your skin, and the amount of excess skin that he plans to remove.
Breast lifts surgery in most cases is performed on an outpatient basis. Surgery takes place in a fully accredited surgery center. For some women from out of state, a one or two night stay in an aftercare facility stay may be recommended if they do not have appropriate aftercare. Dr. Corbin’s staff can also arrange private nursing at your hotel if you wish to be pampered following your breast lift surgery.
