A Novel Technique Of Mastopexy… Intrinsic Mastopexy
August 23rd, 2012
It is not uncommon to lose breast volume in the upper part of the breast subsequent to childbearing and breastfeeding. Furthermore, as women age the breast and the nipple tend to gravitate to a lower level on the chest wall. This is known as breast ptosis. Ladies wishing to have breast augmentation want an augmented perked breast to correct this.
In order to achieve the perfect cosmetic result after breast augmentation, it is of paramount importance that the nipple position is also raised on the chest wall so that the nipple is sitting at an ideal height (at the level of the infra-mammary crease, or at the level of the junction of the upper two-thirds and lower one-third of the arm). Breast implants, chosen appropriately, will raise the nipple and the breast to the desired position in most cases, but at times it is not possible to achieve without performing as additional procedure called mastopexy.
Mastopexy is traditionally done with either the Wise pattern or vertical pattern technique, both of which involve further scarring. To avoid additional scarring, a novel technique of intrinsic mastopexy is possible to undertake for certain ladies who only have pseudo-ptosis. This technique is extremely valuable when the breast has lost all the volume from the upper pole and the nipple position has dropped 3 or more centimetres from its ideal position. There is no additional scarring and the procedure is performed through the same incision as for breast augmentation (5-6cm incision under the breast).
