What is it? The procedure consists of elevating the areola/nipple complex to its normal position, correcting also the decreased breast tissue in the underside of the breast. This is achieved by removing excess skin and rearranging the internal breast tissue. If breast volume is large, some of the breast tissue can be removed to complement the lifting. If the breast volume is small, lifting, together with a breast prosthesis implant can be done to achieve a fuller shape and reduce the size of the scars. This procedure, done as an outpatient, takes about three hours and is done under general anesthesia. Benefits of the procedure
- It improves breast physical appearance.
- Invisible scars.
- It increases the volume of the breasts so that they look natural conserving the original form.
- It relieves physical discomfort (in reduction cases).
