Are you looking to undergo a mastopexy operation?
If you are looking to invest in a mastopexy operation in the country, a good place to start is to determine whether you actually need mastopexy surgery and actually benefit from the procedure.
Of course the real key to getting a mastopexy is to be careful about where you actually get the procedure from. Many offer surgical mastopexy operations overseas at the fraction of the cost compared to local surgeons but it’s a risky proposition – most of those procedures are performed by junior surgeons that lack the skill and experience necessary to handle the operation. Not to mention the possible gap in communication as those surgeons often don’t speak fluent English making it less likely for them to understand let alone comprehend your needs.
You can easily find tragic accounts of patients who’ve taken the risk only to end up with tragic and sometimes irreversible life-threatening consequences. Hence, you should take the time to check the surgeon’s mastopexy before and after photos, undergo a thorough consultation and ask all the questions that come to mind.

More about mastopexy surgery
Now if you hope to benefit from a mastopexy operation, you would do well to know everything that you can about the operation. Most mastopexy operations concern the surgical repositioning of the areola to a higher position.
Most patients undergo the operation on an outpatient setting which means that there is no need for the patient to stay overnight after the procedure unless the breast surgeon specifically says otherwise. A mastopexy operation takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete and performed with general anaesthetics. To achieve the desired results, your surgeon may need to make use of breast implants in addition to the mastopexy procedure.
Make sure that your surgeon discusses these options and informs you of the procedure in great detail before committing to anything. To qualify for the surgery, a good candidate for the operation would have to be at least 18 years of age with fully developed breasts.
It is also possible to opt for the procedure following pregnancy. Sometimes, mastopexy operations may be covered by insurance companies as a part of reconstructive breast surgery although this is certainly not the case when performed as a cosmetic surgical operation.
