About The Procedure
About Breast Lifts / MastopexyOver the years, factors such as weight loss or gain, pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts-at least for a time. (No surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity.) Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume, for example, after pregnancy, breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both improve their volume, shape, firmness and their size.
Minimal Incision MastopexyTraditionally breast lifting was performed with the same anchor shaped scars as breast reduction that go around the nipple and vertically from the nipple to the inframammary fold where the scars would follow the fold for a few centimeters or inches depending on the amount of breast tissue and sag. Lifting today, however, can be performed with just a peri-areolar incision around the nipple complex. Through this incision, the tissue can be lifted and tightened, the nipple can be moved to its appropriate position and the breast can be augmented with an implant if desired. This type of minimal incision mastopexy is also commonly known as the Benneli Mastopexy or the Goes Mastopexy after the French and Brazilian surgeons respectively who are credited with the development of the procedure. To perform this type of mastopexy a surgeon must have vast experience in this specific operation as it is more technically demanding than the traditional mastopexy with anchor scarring. Dr. Hodgkinson has this expertise as a cosmetic plastic surgeon and has been performing this procedure for nearly 15 years.
