Mastopexy surgery is one of the more common procedures as women tend to age. As women age, the nipple areola complex tends to drop below the level of the inframammary fold or breast crease. When the breasts sag, this is called “ptosis”. The only way to correct breast ptosis is to perform a lift procedure. The more standard lift pattern is called a “Wise” pattern or “T-lift” pattern.
It is often common for women to desire a breast lift without additional volume placed. That is, a breast lift without the placement of an implant. The recovery period for this procedure tends to be relatively short and associated with very little pain post-operatively.
