Mammoplasty is a type of plastic surgery used to alter its appearance. The shape and size of mammary glands affect women’s self-esteem and quality of life. Modern technologies can make every woman’s dream of having beautiful breasts come true. Mammoplasty is not only performed for breast augmentation, but also for breast lift, especially after pregnancy. A surgical consult will help you decide what type of surgery you need.
Breast surgery, just like any other plastic surgery, has a number of contraindications:
- Age under 18 years
- Diseases with a contraindication of narcosis
- Neoplasms on mammary glands
- Oncological diseases
- Pregnancy and lactation
Before performing mammoplasty, several examinations are required:
- Breast ultrasound
- General blood analysis
- Blood chemistry test
- Urine test
- Hepatitis, AIDS, and HIV tests

Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery that doesn’t require medical indications.
Due to the high quality of implants and modern technologies, the implants are guaranteed to last a lifetime. This is one of the reasons why the number of breast augmentation surgeries with implants has increased several times.
Many women across the world enjoy its results.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Mastopexy is indicated for women in the post-lactation period as well as at a more mature age when the breast starts sagging. Mastopexy helps restore the breast’s shape and symmetry.
By the degree of difficulty, breast lift types are the following:
Anchor mastopexy (inverted-T)
This type of mammoplasty is different in its medical indications. Excessively large breast size can cause physical inconvenience and even back pain. The result is reached by removing fat and gland tissues. Breast reduction surgery belongs to the simpler type of plastic surgeries but requires patients to follow all of the surgeon’s instructions during the recovery period.
There are a couple of surgeries, that are often combined with the main types of mammoplasty but can also be performed separately.
Correction of the areola area
Correction of the areola area is often combined with other types of mammoplasty but can also be performed on its own.
The average duration of the surgery is one hour.
Removal of breast implants
Over many years of practice, there have been a number of cases when the removal of the implant was necessary:
- Client’s discontent after implant placement
- Implant rotation or offset over time
- The client’s desire to change the shape or size of the breast after primary mammoplasty
- Implant rupture and, as a result, unpleasant sensation and deformity of the breast
- Formation of hematoma
Reconstruction of the areola and the nipple in case of their absence
May be necessary after cancer treatment.
May be necessary after lactation period.
Retracted nipple correction
Elimination of gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is a pathology of breast tissue in men. Swollen breast gland tissues and fat tissues on one or both sides are the typical features of gynecomastia.
