What is a breast ptosis cure?

Breast ptosis is defined by a sagging of the gland and a distension of the skin that surrounds it. The breast is in a too low position and more frequently “dishabited” in its upper part.

Ptosis may exist from the start but most often occurs after significant weight loss or during a pregnancy with breastfeeding.

Principle of intervention

The operation consists in reshaping the breast by acting on the skin envelope and on the glandular tissue. The gland is concentrated and placed in the right position. The skin envelope must then be adapted, which requires removing excess skin in order to ensure good hold and a beautiful shape for the new breast.

In the case of very severe ptosis, the scar has the shape of an inverted T with three components: periareolar around the areola between brown skin and white skin, vertical between the lower pole of the areola and the submammary fold, horizontal hidden in the submammary fold. The length of the horizontal scar is proportional to the extent of ptosis.

The procedure may be combined with breast augmentation or breast reduction.

“A center of excellence”

My approach is initially to listen to patients in order to determine if their expectations are realistic and achievable and if the risk-benefit ratio is in favor of an intervention.

Doctor Maxence Thomas performed breast reduction surgery on me in May. I am delighted with the result. Doctor Thomas is very available and very friendly. I felt confident right away and would highly recommend it.

I went to see Dr. Thomas for gynecomastia. He was really kind and very clear in his explanations. 3 months after the operation, and after the follow-up appointment, I am really very satisfied with the result
