A periareolar mastopexy is a procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. Also known as a concentric or doughnut breast lift, the method eliminates the scarring associated with a traditional breast lift by confining a single incision to the darker skin of the areola. This method is well-suited for many women who have lost skin elasticity and breast volume due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, and/or aging, but not every patient is a candidate for the procedure.
Typically, the best candidates for a periareolar mastopexy are women who:
- Have minimal degrees of ptosis, or drooping
- Are finished childbearing and breastfeeding
- Plan to maintain a healthy weight
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure
Any woman considering a breast lift procedure should speak with a Board Certified plastic surgeon to find out if a concentric mastopexy is right for her. Candidates who want to further enhance breast volume and shape can also discuss breast implants with their plastic surgeon.
Women in Tampa, St Petersburg, Naples, Sarasota, and other communities throughout Florida considering periareolar mastopexy can turn to Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Bayshore Plastic Surgery. Dr. Greenwald was trained and educated at Princeton, Yale, Harvard, and the University of Chicago, and has nearly two decades of experience as a breast enhancement surgeon.
