A mastopexy is a breast lift. As a breast ages, the breast is effected by gravity, breast feeding and activity. The skin stretches, the nipple drops and it doesn't look the way it did in youth. It requires a bra to lift it. Surgically, the skin can be changed to create a bra to support the breast There are many different techniques to do this. All require a scar, however, depending upon the severity of the ptosis, it might be that the scar can be hidden.
It is most important for patients to know that there are specific indications for hidden or short scar procedures. If the wrong procedure is performed, the breast can end up being deformed and not be cosmetically pleasing.
Dr. Bain takes care to use the proper procedure for the proper patient. Here, you will see short scar mastopexies, and the standard "Weis Pattern" or inverted "T" mastopexy. In time, post-operatively, scars are well tolerated.
