Common Questions and Answers about Breast lift mastopexy

breast

Avatar n tn A breast lift (or mastopexy) involves removal of redundant skin of the beast to tighten, reshape, and lift it. The procedure generally does not necessarily involve much surgery on the breast tissue itself. An excision of the fibroadenoma can be performed at the same time as a lift. The excised tissue should be sent for pathologic examination.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I am early 50's, contemplating breast lift surgery. I may have implants done at the same time. My main concerns are these: 1) Will the nipple sensation be the same after surgery and recovery? Nipple feeling is a big part of arousal for me and I would hate to lose it. 2) At my age, should I be concerned about the life of implants? I would rather not do anything that will certainly require additional surgery if I live to be elderly. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I recently asked a question about why one of my breast was fuller and higher in one side and you had maybe though it was capsular contracture, well I went to see my dr today and he said that it wasn't that instead one of my breast actually lays lower ( the fold). I paid alot of money for my procedure so I'm upset that they are uneven. When you get a lift and a breat augmentation aren't they suppose to be even or could it take some more time for one to settle?
Avatar f tn Hi i had a breast augmentation over two months ago i was supposed to have a lolly pop lift along with it but the surgeon decided not to do the lift while i was on the operating table in a way i am glad that he did not perform the lolly pop lift as i was not to happy with the idea of the scars. I am happy with the overall results, however i do feel that the look of my breasts would be much better with a lift.
Avatar f tn I had a breast lift with silicone implants and a mini tummy tuck 5 weeks ago. Approximately 2 weeks after surgery the incision area under both breasts opened quite quickly. Within a couple of days the wounds were significantly large and weeping. For the last 3 weeks I have been on oral antibiotics and treating the wounds twice a day with silver sulfadiazine. I don't see any sign of healing and my PS will determine today if I need to be seen by a specialist.
1563771 tn?1299820137 Breast lift surgery may be combined with breast implants for a fuller appearance. A breast lift can also reduce the size of an enlarged, stretched areola (the dark pigmented skin around the nipple). The specific mastopexy technique used will be based on an individual evaluation, but generally two incisions are made: one around the areola and one that runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease under the breast.
1117076 tn?1258945279 It is possible to perform both a breast lift (mastopexy) and removal of your axillary breasts at the same time. You would need to accept residual scarring from the lift. Cost will vary from surgeon to surgeon and be different from similar procedures in California, where I practice. Clearly it would be advisable to obtain one or more consultations with local plastic surgeons to get an opinion about a lift and axillary breast resection along with the associated costs.
Avatar n tn hi, A week and a half ago, I had a breast implant put into my rigt breast and a mastopexy which is a lift on the left. Now, I still have pain in the right breast. I went to get my stitches out the week after, but the nurse said i need to keep them in the left breast vertical incision. I am worried that it's not going to get better by the looks of it. Also, having to wear a sports bra makes it very hard to wear normal clothing when I go, seeing as how it is summer.
Avatar f tn When I had my implants removed, I also had a mastopexy (or breast lift). I was very happy with my results and very glad to have the effects from the silicon gradually disappear. One thing you want to do is get that stuff out of your body and you need to make sure your Doctor understands that. Sometimes a letter to him with all your concerns, wants and needs regarding your surgery is a good idea. If you are dealing with a Doctor who resents being asked questions... FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR.

Avatar n tn This surgery would probably fall under the "breast lift" or mastopexy procedure. I only say this because it sounds like the larger breast is lower than the other. It is great that you don't want implants, they were a disaster for me, had to have them removed after 10 years. Many, many procedures to resolve problems with implants. I don't know how old you are, but as one ages, there is usually a weight gain. So as you get older you breasts will probably enlarge some.
Avatar n tn Hi. I had a breast lift 4 weeks ago. Since then the fibroadenoma I have on one breast gives me stabbing pains and it is twice the size it was before. My P.S. is puzzled too. I will not have another mammogram for another two years. It feels like she might have nicked it while stitiching inside. What concerns me is the size and the stabbing pain. My mom had breast cancer at 37. I am 40.
Avatar f tn As for the use of implants, if you are satisfied with breast volume, but dissatisfied with breast shape, then a breast lift (mastopexy) will be all that you need. If breast volume is lacking and you desire more superior fullness, then placing an implant at the time of the lift would be appropriate.
Avatar n tn Two months ago I had a mastopexy with augmentation. After about five weeks of healing my right breast began to swell and grew hard. Very quickly a small blister developed and began to produce a small amount of discharge and it looked like it was probably infected. They started me on oral antibiotics immediately.
Avatar f tn There are no creams or lotions that will restore your breasts to pre-pregnancy appearance and sensation. A breast lift, or mastopexy can restore your appearance to a more youthful profile, but this may worsen the loss of sensation. I am afraid that the aging process is frequently not kind to us, and some things happen that cannot be reversed with a scalpel or a lotion.

1378404 tn?1278978251 i saw a plastic surgeon not too long ago who specializes in breast implants gone wrong LOL, and he told me he would take off any extra skin that should have been taken off before the implants were put in to begin with, and he would remove these saline implants, give a breast lift and put in new silicone implants of a cup size smaller. this would cost around 15k. i dont have 15k laying around.
