Breast Lift , Mastopexy , is a choice in female patients whose skin is not strong or resilient enough to support the weight of their breast, causing the breasts to have sagged. With this situation, called ptosis, there is too much skin compared to breast tissue. To give the breast a lift, the excess skin might be removed. There are several surgical techniques utilized such as :
a Wise pattern in which the incision, in the shape of an anchor, goes around the chest and below the breast.
a Le-Jour in which the incision goes around the areola and down.
and a Donut or peri-areolar that the incision goes around the areola only.
