Many women suffer from breast ptosis after several pregnancies or significant weight loss. Dr. Ballieux is a specialised plastic surgeon who informs you about augmentation mastopexy or breast lift in Brussels.
Graduated from an additional training in breast surgery (Breast Academy), she is an expert in cosmetic surgery and also an experienced surgeon in breast surgery.
Breast lift reshapes and lift breasts that are saggy, aligns breasts that are uneven, restores a firm, perky look, reduces large areolas and renews breast appearance after breast implant removal. Woman’s confidence and her sense of femininity are restored.
Following the relaxation of the skin envelope, the breasts collapse and become ptotic. Breast ptosis refers to the sagginess of the breast, it can be related to pregnancy, aging or weight changes.
The breast lift or mastopexy involves to tighten the skin envelope of the breast. During a breast lift, only the excess skin is resected and the breast tissue is preserved in order to keep a maximum volume while raising the breast. The skin incisions are placed in such a way that the resulting scars are the least visible.
Minimal scar breast lift (doughnut mastopexy)
This involves circular incisions around the areola, and provides a modest lift.
Partial lift (keyhole or lollipop mastopexy)
This involves two incisions: a circular incision around the areola, and a second incision that extends vertically from the areola to the base of the breast. No incision is made under the breast.
Full lift (anchor or Wise mastopexy)
This involves incisions that circle the areola, travel down vertically from the areola to the base of the breast, and along the fold of the breast. This lift creates the most significant degree of change.
In some cases, Dr. Ballieux uses the “Internal Bra Procedure”.
We can remodel the breast tissue like a” Internal Bra” on the inside and secure that breast tissue onto the ribs. Sometimes we use a material called “Strattice” which is inserted between the patient’s skin and breast tissue. This membrane become incorporated into the person’s own body; our blood supply grows into the material and create internal support of the breast tissue. Because a breast lift will not increase your breast size, your surgeon may recommend combining it with breast augmentation if your goal is to fill out your breasts.
A breast lift improves the appearance of your breasts for years. The natural aging process, pregnancy and weight changes will likely cause your breasts to sag again.
This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia in a day hospital and requires preoperative mammography.
Before proceeding with surgery, Dr. Ballieux needs to assess your breast shape and size. The first consultation will take place in Brussels. At the same time, she will inform you about the procedure, the risks and complications and the expected scars. At the end of the consultation, you will receive a script for a mammogram or breast ultrasound.
The procedure takes place under general anaesthesia, on an outpatient basis at the Claris Clinic. Dr. Ballieux will first draw the location of your scars before you fall asleep.
