Mastopexy surgeries are principally similar to reduction mammoplasties. It involves the procedure of shaping the breasts of
those women that have small size but sagging breasts. Combined techniques are even used with silicone prosthesis for the
small-volume, sagging breasts. These surgeries are carried out under the general anesthesia. Recovery period is
approximately 1 week. Scars similar to the reduction mammoplasties will exist but will reduce progressively.
‘The joint purpose of the plastic breast surgeries is to give patients breasts having aesthetical appearance in acceptable
anatomic sizes and to provide patients with comfortable life’.
What are the techniques to apply augmentation mammoplasties? Are there any risks?
Augmentation mammoplasty is known as one of the most frequently applied plastic surgery interventions. These are the
interventions with all aspects and positive and negative consequences known by surgeons.
The fundamental principle of augmentation mammoplasties is to give new volume to breasts by means of placing breast
prosthesis made of silicone into breasts through small incisions. Prosthesis is placed into mammary glands or pouches
opened below muscle according to the presence of the existing mammary tissue.
The rumors about breast prosthesis is the issue of deflation of silicone prosthesis. By using the current technologies,
quite resistant implants are produced, and this possibility is zero. Although certain issues are reported in relation with
certain implant brands in terms of the relevant production standards, your plastic surgeon will provide you with the best
support on this matter.
The most frequently asked question by women regarding this procedure is whether it has any impacts on breast feeding.
As this is a surgery that does not damage mammary glands and mammary ducts, it does not have any impacts on breast
feeding after pregnancy.
Carcinogenic characteristic of silicon prosthesis remains as a question on the minds of people, however; the increase of
this risk could not be demonstrated in the studies and publications conducted. In fact, plastic surgeons use such prosthesis
for the purpose of breast reconstruction instead of the breast tissue removed from the cancerous patients. By considering
from this perspective, this is actually an application that increases living quality in the patients having breast cancer.
Augmentation mammoplasties are conducted under general anesthesia. The procedure is carried out by means of small
incisions in the inframammary line and below the armpit or nipple. The scars of those incisions are concealed by the surgeon.
Patients can return to normal life within several days after the surgery that approximately takes 2 hours.
Reduction mammoplasties are based upon the removal of excessive breast tissue and skin that causes large size breasts as
opposed to the augmentation mammoplasties. These surgeries involve aesthetical concerns and many other reasons exists
in very large breast patients. These surgeries also provide comfortable life for patients by eliminating chronical back and neck
pains as well as itching and skin rubbing under the breasts.
Reduction mammoplasties are conducted under general anesthesia. According to its technique, surgery scar will remain
below the breasts as single or reverse downward T shape. These scars will progressively disappear in the subsequent years.
The period of recovery for patients after the surgery is 1 week unless contrary complications are observed. Following this
period of time, patients can return to normal life.
2 significant suggestions to increase the success for the patients that intend to have reduction mammoplasties are losing
weight and not smoking during the surgery process. Smoking significantly affects the healing of the wound areas and tissue
nutrition. Also, existence of diabetics affects the recovery process.
