Mastopexy Treatment & Diagnostics in Nehru Enclave, Delhi
Mastopexy is another name given to the medical procedure of breast lift. This procedure is conducted to give the breasts a fuller, rounder and firmer look. The surgery also cuts off the extra skin around the breasts that might sag and makes the areolas (the circles around the nipples) smaller.
This procedure is more commonly done on older women because your breasts can start to sag or droop as you get older. They might also lose their firmness or elasticity. This can be due to several reasons like pregnancy, breastfeeding or fluctuations in weight. Usually, if someone undergoes a breast augmentation that increases the size of their breasts, they might also get a mastopexy done.

What happens during a mastopexy?
A breast lift can be performed using different methods and procedures. The procedure usually depends on your breast shape, size and how much lift you require in your breasts.
Generally, the procedure begins with the surgeon marking the amount of lift the breast requires. They will mark the new position of the nipple after the lift. After the marking is done, you will be administered anesthesia. This will numb the area of the surgery or put you to sleep. After anesthesia starts working, the surgeon will make an incision around the areola. The cut will generally extend from the front of the areola down to the crease of the breasts. After the incision is made, the surgeon will lift the breasts and reshape them. Then the surgeon will move the areolas to their new positions. They might also reduce the size of the areolas during this process. When the breasts are lifted, the surgeon will remove any extra skin around the breasts. This will help give the breasts a firmer look. After the procedure is complete, the surgeon will stitch the incisions back together.
