This technique can also be used to remove excess skin or to tighten the surrounding tissue and reshape the breast, giving you a new more favorable breast contour. Sometimes the breast nipple areolar complex becomes thin and effaced and larger than it should be and a breast lift or mastopexy will help with this as well.
Oftentimes a woman’s breasts change over time. This can occur from numerous factors including gravity and aging weight fluctuations breast-feeding pregnancy and sometimes from congenital birth defects as well. Mastopexy is intended to help to correct some of these problems.
The donut mastopexy is a technique utilized to move the nipple up a small amount. This reduces the incision by just having an incision around the nipple and sometimes a small vertical arm on the breast creating a vertical lollipop incision that must less in its length than the normal vertical mastopexy. The donut mastopexy was utilized for ladies that have very little droop of the breast but need to have the nipple areolar complex elevated just slightly possibly 1 cm up to possibly 3 cm. This cannot be utilized for nipples that are below the base of the breast or more than 3 cm or so below the optimal position of the nipple. This is a very safe technique. The disadvantage of this technique is that the nipple areolar complex tends to widen and stretch out over time. This is quite safe and the incisions are usually quite minimal, and the scar is quite favorable.
