The Donut Mastopexy Procedure

A donut mastopexy is performed by Dr. Timothy Janiga in an outpatient surgery center. The surgery involves an incision around the areola only, with the removal of excess skin through this small incision. The areola is then repositioned on the breast and sutured closed.  Breast implants can be placed at the same time with the donut mastopexy also if desired.

This procedure takes one to two hours with another hour for recovery before being allowed to go home.

Breast Lift

Breast lifts are performed to help rejuvenate a woman’s physique.

At Janiga MDs, Dr. Timothy Janiga specializes in plastic surgery and Dr. Jennifer Janiga specializes in dermatology, giving their practice a unique, comprehensive perspective on their patients’ cosmetic needs in the Reno, Nevada area.

The Crescent Mastopexy Procedure

A crescent pexy is performed in an outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia. It involves a crescent-shaped incision involving about half of the nipple, an island of skin is removed, and the areola is repositioned.

Though this procedure may be performed on its own, it is often combined with breast augmentation surgery for complete results.

This procedure takes one to two hours with another hour for recovery before being allowed to go home.

Recovery & Results

The recovery and final results for all three types of mastopexy are comparable overall. Swelling and minimal bruising may last up to three weeks. Return to work can be expected within five to seven days.

You will notice results right away, with the breasts having been elevated. Signs of improvement will continue to appear as the incisions heal.
