Mastopexy — Breast Lift Incision Patterns
The symptoms of aging can take their toll on our bodies as the breasts and nipples begin to lose firmness and sag. These changes in the body can be amplified with pregnancy and weight fluctuations. For those who are concerned about excessive sagging of the breasts or would just like to increase the volume and overall size, a mastopexy can be the solution.
A mastopexy is a surgical procedure that lifts and reshapes breasts that have sagged. Typically, incisions are made around the nipple-areola complex, where excess skin is removed to reshape the breasts. There are many variations of incision patterns, such as the anchor pattern, inverted-T incision and the lollipop pattern. The type of incision depends on the specifics of each patient’s body type.
