Breast Lift- Mastopexy
Breast lift is needed when the place of the nipple is low compared to the submammary fold. There are several Grades and Types of breast ptosis. So a patient can have ptosis when the nipple is at the level of submammary fold or lower and when the nipple is facing downwards. A woman can have also a condition called pseudoptosis, where the nipple is at the right height but the mammary gland (volume of the breast) is all concentrated on the lower part of the breast, hanging lower than the fold.
Technique: According to the Grade and Type of ptosis, one technique is indicated. We have the Donut mastopexy thechnique, where the scar is placed only around the areola. This is minimum scar technique and is indicated for small ptosis. The Lollipop technique has a scar arround the areola and plus one vertical towards the submammary fold, indicated for medium grade ptosis. The Inverted T technique has a round scar a vertical to the submammary fold and an horizontal one. All scars are placed to be hidden inside the bra.
The revolutionary Ribeiro Mastopexy Technique
The Ribeiro Technique is the most sophisticated breast lift technique. It is indicated for patients that have a sutisfying breast volume but very ptotic (Grade 2 or 3). Its advantage is the restoration of the volume of the upper pole of the breast witch means a full and round decolte. The plastic surgeon Markos Hatzipieras has profound knowledge of this innovating technique wich has shared through international publications and reasearch.
