48. Mastopexy of drooping breasts with silicone implants, by means of two tiny incisions and elastic threads
Today, the appearance of breasts that have silicone implants can be improved through a single 8 mm incision in the areolar margin. Simply by encircling the areola with an elastic thread, which is mounted on a two-tipped Jano needle, we can conize the breast, reposition the implant in contact with the chest wall, reduce the diameter of the areola or make it symmetrical, and lift the breast by a few centimeters. By means of a second, 2 mm long, incision in the axillary column, mastopexy of breasts with silicone implants can also be carried out.
This ambulatory Elastic Plastic Surgery procedure can be used both to give normal breasts a more natural look and to correct the so-called "ball-in-a-sock" appearance of larger breasts.
