Breast Reduction (Mammaplasty)

Overview

Over time, breasts can develop ptosis, or sagging, with the nipples descending from the anatomical location above the inframammary fold.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is an operation designed to remove excess skin tissue restoring the nipple above the fold. While somewhat similar to a mastopexy, a breast reduction not only removes excess skin, but also excess breast tissue (parenchyma) to reduce the size of the breast.

A breast reduction, or mammoplasty, is an operation designed to move the nipples to a more aesthetic area, while removing breast tissue to eliminate shoulder grooving, back pain, intertrigo (rashes) under the breast, and improve self-confidence.

Dr. Anup Patel Advantage

Dr. Anup Patel provides an in-depth consult where the patient and him develop a tailored operation to get the optimal result. During the operation, Dr. Patel measures precisely maps your breasts to get you the best result.

He often utilizes Galatea, or an absorbable mesh to reinforce the result as this material acts as an internal bra.

He dubs it “white gold” and adds support to the underlying breast tissue to circumvent the forces of gravity. Then, he uses plastic surgery techniques to close the tissue in a tensionless manner to mitigating scarring.
