WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TRADITIONAL BREAST LIFT MASTOPEXY METHOD?

HELP MAKE YOUR BREAST MORE TONE AND YOUTHFUL

When your breasts are lifted, you will notice that your breasts are firmer. Especially at AVA Hospital, our doctors combine technology such as Embrace RF or Morpheus - these are modern body shaping technologies using 3-D Bipolar wave energy. (energy emitted with very high frequency, 1 million rpm). The technology was developed by Inmode, and has been FDA approved. This energy has the effect of shrinking fat cells while promoting collagenization to create skin firmness. Therefore, your breast will not only become firmer but also look younger.

 


DOES NOT SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE SIZE OF YOUR BREAST

Breast lift through the Mastopexy method does not significantly change the size of the breast or if it does, the breast tends to be 1-2 cm smaller after surgery due to excess skin removal. If you desire to have a larger breast, you can discuss with your doctors for augmentation with breast implants.

IMPROVE THE SHAPE OF THE BREAST

When the breasts lose their perkiness and become saggy, the Cooper ligaments that support the mammary glands are stretched too much, losing their elasticity, leading to a poor ability to support the breasts. At the same time, the skin tissue is no longer firm, causing the nipple from the straight forward position to gradually direct downwards along with the body. During Mastopexy procedure, the doctor will remove the excess skin in the sagging breast area to help the breasts lift up and become fuller.


LIFT UP THE NIPPLE TO THE RIGHT POSITION

Nipples that are positioned lower than the inframammary line instead of being above and pointed straight ahead is the most obvious sign of a ptosis (saggy) breast. With breast lifting Mastopexy method, it will help bring the nipple back to its original position.


BREAST LIFT VIA MASTOPEXY SURGICAL PROCESS

The first and most important step of any surgery is consultation with a plastic surgeon. Talk to your doctor about the goals you want to achieve through this surgery. Or if you have a desire for a specific breast size or shape, you can prepare pictures of your desired breast in advance. Your doctor will help you analyze and provide you with the right surgical solution.

And as usual, you are thoroughly medically checked before you can enter the operating room.

CAREFUL MEASUREMENT AND MARKINGS PRIOR TO SURGERY
