Before the operation, you will have the opportunity to see your surgeon during a first consultation. This is then the opportunity to know your needs and to examine your breasts in detail. Thus, the surgeon will be able to propose you a treatment adapted to your morphology but also to the importance of ptosis.
- During the operation, the practitioner begins by making traces of the incisions on your body using a surgical felt-tip pen.
- He then makes the incisions, which must be as short as possible, and replaces the areola and nipple.
- He then goes up the mammary gland and removes the excess skin and redrapes the skin around the mammary gland.
- Finally, he sutures the incisions with absorbable sutures. Drains may eventually be placed.
Depending on the extent of slackening, the surgeon may perform different types of scars:
- Inverted T-shaped scars when the sagging of the breasts is moderate.
- In the shape of a marine anchor for a significant slackening.
- Around the areola for minimal sagging (round-block).
The first results of a breast lifting are visible immediately. The breasts are reshaped and reshaped. Nevertheless, it will be necessary to wait until the swelling and bruising have subsided to see the final results of the breast lifting.
