The Peri-Areolar Lift Technique In Miami
Learn More About Breast Lift Surgery
Over time, as a result of a number of factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, and the natural aging process, many women begin to notice undesirable changes in their breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often begin to droop or sag, which causes them to lose their shape. Unfortunately, droopy or deflated breasts can make women appear older than their age, which can have a detrimental affect on their self-esteem.
Luckily, a breast lift or mastopexy in Miami can help to restore the appearance of your breasts by improving their shape and contour and returning them to a more youthful position. There are three different techniques used for mastopexy, including the peri-areolar lift technique, the vertical or lollipop breast lift, and the inverted T breast lift. The most suitable technique for you depends on your individual needs and goals for the procedure; thus, it is advisable to consult with an experienced and qualified board certified plastic surgeon in order to determine your candidacy for the peri-areolar technique.
What Is A Peri-Areolar Lift Technique?
The peri-areolar or benelli lift is a breast lift technique which is best suited to women with relatively small breasts who have minimal sagging but hope to enhance the size and shape of their breasts, while also improving the position of their nipples. This procedure, which is frequently combined with a breast augmentation, involves making circular incisions around the areola, which enables the areola to be reduced in size by up to 1.5 inches in diameter.
In the event that this procedure is combined with a breast augmentation, the implant is placed in a pocket below the breast tissue or under the muscle of the chest wall. Once the outer layer of excess skin has been removed, the areola is repositioned and sutures are used to carefully close the incision. While the length of the procedure will vary depending on the patient’s needs, in most cases, it can be completed in as little as two hours.
The peri-areolar technique is a minimally invasive breast lift procedure, due to the fact that it requires less extensive incisions than the alternative techniques. However, it is important to recognize that not all patients are eligible for this technique, as patients who have considerable sagging will require a larger lollipop or inverted T incision.
Outcome Of The Procedure
The results of this procedure will not be immediately visible because the breasts will be swollen and the skin surrounding the areola may appear slightly puckered following the procedure. However, within a few weeks, the swelling will gradually subside, the breasts will soften and the skin will flatten, revealing breasts that are firmer, more elevated, and youthful in appearance.
