What is a Full Mastopexy?
A breast lift, also known as a full mastopexy, helps offset the effects of age, nursing, gravity, breast implant removal or significant weight loss. A breast lift from Janiga MDs involves removing excess skin and reshapes the breast tissue to create a more youthful appearance.
A breast lift is performed by Dr. Timothy Janiga at a Reno outpatient surgery center using general anesthesia. It involves an incision around the areola and, depending on the extent of lift needed, may require an anchor shaped incision below the areola and horizontally across the underside of each breast. Silicone or saline implants can be included and are often placed either under the muscle or breast gland to improve the overall breast shape, depending on your desired results and personal situation.
The procedure usually takes one to three hours with another two hours of recovery time before leaving the surgery center.
Full Mastopexy Recovery & Results
Swelling and bruising may last up to three weeks. Return to work can be expected within one to two weeks. Full results are expected within three to six months.
