What is masteopexy?

Masteopexy (Greek μαστός mastos "breast" + -pēxiā "affix")is known as a cosmetic surgery used to raise sagging breasts upon women's chest. This type of plastic surgery is done by modifying the size, contour, and elevation of the breasts. During a breast lift surgery or masteopexy the plastic surgeon re-establishes an aesthetically proportionate bust for the woman, the critical corrective consideration is the tissue viability of the nipple-areola complex which is known as NAC and that's too important to ensure the functional sensitivity of the breasts for necessary usages like lactation and breast-feeding.

The process of breast lift is done for correcting the sagging bust by removing excess tissues including glandular, adipose, and skin (overstretched suspensory ligaments, excess skin from the skin-envelope, and transposes the nipple-areola complex higher upon the breast hemisphere). Masteopexy can be only performed to a discrete breast lift or it can be a combined procedure with the breast augmentation process. One type of masteopexy is suitable for oversized breasts that are done by reducing mammoplasty. Psychologically, a mastopexy is a process for correcting breast ptosis that is not indicated by medical causes or physical reasons, but by the self-image of the woman; that is, the combination of physical, aesthetic, and mental health requirements of her self. Sometimes it's necessary to ask for psychological consulting to improve the patient's self-image. you may receive a mastopexy without breast implants. In fact, a breast lift is designed to remove excess skin and fat tissues, raise and/or reposition the nipple-areolar complex, and reshape native breast tissues in a way similar to a small implant in those that don't want to have implants.

Masteopexy candidates

The patients who are a candidate for masteopexy are mostly women who ask for changing their bust including changing the size, elevation, and contouring. Different reasons can cause breast ptosis, especially postpartum volume losses of fat, milk gland tissues. For masteopexy there are some indications presented by the woman like the degrees of laxness of the suspensory Cooper's ligaments; and of the breast skin-envelope (mild, moderate, severe, and pseudo ptosis)—determine the suitable rhytidectomy surgical approach for lifting the breasts.

The usual mastopexy candidate is the woman who asks for the restoration of her bust (elevation, size, and contour), because of different reasons like the post-partum volume losses of fat and milk-gland tissues, and the occurrence of breast ptosis. The clinical indications presented by the patients—the degrees of laxness of the suspensory Cooper's ligaments; and of the breast skin-envelope (mild, moderate, severe, and pseudo ptosis)—determine the applicable restorative surgical approach for breasts lifting. Grade I is mild and breast ptosis can be corrected solely with breast augmentation, surgical and non-surgical procedures. Severe type breast ptosis can be corrected with breast lift techniques, such as the Anchor pattern, the Inverted-T incision, and the Lollipop pattern, which are performed with circumvertical and horizontal surgical incisions; which produce periareolar scarring, at the periphery (edge) of the nipple-areola complex (NAC), and a vertical scar, descending from the lower margin of the NAC to the horizontal scar in the infra-mammary fold (IMF), the site which the breast meets the chest; such surgical scars are the aesthetic disadvantages of mastopexy. Home remedies are effective to minimize the appearance of breast lift scars, but you have to know that the scars will not completely go away. The scars might even become more visible and worse if you discontinue your home remedies or OTC therapies. Your dermatologist may suggest professional scar removal treatments if your breast lift scars are severe and you are not satisfied.

How long is recovery from mastopexy?

Breast lift recovery or masteopexy surgery mostly lasts for one to two weeks, depending on your general health condition and whether you decide to combine any other procedures with your Masteopexy. Recovery may also take longer or have different results than usual situations, depending on the kind of breast lift you may have.

How expensive is a mastopexy process? How Much Does Mastopexy Cost?

Most breast lift procedures are considered aesthetic surgeries. Health insurance companies mostly do not cover them unless they are done as part of a mastectomy reconstruction procedure. Based on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for the procedure is around $4,693 last year.

Is getting a breast lift worth it?

The answer to this question depends on your expectations. Lifting the breasts and correcting their form means a return to a more youthful and shapely appearance. You have to know that a breast lift will not increase the size of your breasts unless the procedure is combined with a breast augmentation procedure. There are many benefits to having a breast lift that will help give you a boost in self-confidence.
