The procedure of breast lift, also known as mastopexy, reverses the negative consequences of aging, pregnancy and weight loss. Flat and ptotic breasts are transformed into young looking ones. Dr. Stavrou recommends the use of silicone implants in selected cases so as to augment the volume and sustain long-term results.
Skin incisions are hidden around the areola and in more ptotic breasts a vertical incision might be necessary, extending down towards the infra-mammary fold.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia and an overnight stay may be required, especially when combined with other procedures.
Return to everyday tasks begins from the 1st post-op day with more normal activity within 1-2 weeks.
Results are long-term although changes in body weight, pregnancy and aging may alter your appearance.
