Is a Donut Mastopexy Right for Me?

Published on December 21, 2017

A breast lift surgery can improve the look of the breasts in a number of different ways. Also known as a mastopexy, this surgical procedure can help you get firmer, more beautiful breasts. There are different types of surgical techniques available to perform a breast lift surgery. These different techniques can address specific problems with the breasts. One such technique is the donut mastopexy.

What Is A Donut Mastopexy?

Donut mastopexy is a breast lift surgery that can address the problem of mild sagging. The technique involves making a circular incision around the areola. It is also often used to reduce the size of the areola. This plastic surgery procedure is ideal for women who experience drooping or sagging breasts that are small or medium in size.

There are a number of different factors involved in the formation of saggy breasts. These factors include age, genetics, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. A donut mastopexy can help remedy these issues and give you the beautiful breasts you desire.

What to Expect During The Procedure

To begin the procedure, an incision will be made at the edge of the areola, right where the colored skin of the areola blends with the rest of the breast skin. A second incision is made around the first cut. Through this process, your doctor will make a circular cut to gain access to the underlying tissues.

Your doctor can access the tissues from underneath the incision. It is from this incision that excess skin and fat is removed. Once the necessary tissue are eliminated from the body, the remaining skin is tightened. The end result will be firmer and perkier breasts.

Once the treatment is completed, you will need to take some time off your normal schedule to rest and relax. Recovery from a donut mastopexy depends on the individual and the amount of correction needed. Your doctor will guide you through the entire process and provide you with post-operative care instructions.

Benefits of a Donut Mastopexy

A donut mastopexy can provide women with a number of great benefits. The procedure leads to minimal post-surgical marks. The surgery can be done using a small number of incisions that are strategically placed along the curves of the breasts. They will remain hidden from sight so you don’t have to worry about hiding your body.

A donut mastopexy imparts a natural look to your breast. Your breasts will become firmer and more beautiful after the surgery. Once the desired correction is performed, your breasts will retain their natural and alluring look.

A breast lift can also be combined with other cosmetic breast surgeries such as an augmentation procedure. You can get both procedures done at the same time without having to undergo two separate procedures.

A donut mastopexy is ideal for those who don’t require drastic changes to their breasts. For larger breasts, or for breasts with extensive drooping, your doctor may recommend a different type of breast lift surgery.
