Mammoplasty is a section of plastic surgery that deals with the correction of the breast in order to give the breast a more aesthetic shape. Contrary to popular belief, mammoplasty is not only female, but also male-with gynecomastia (too developed breasts in men).

Depending on the type of gland deformity, specialists use various types of surgical intervention-removal of skin and glandular tissues, use of prostheses (implants), etc. However, we should not forget that mammoplasty has both indications and contraindications.

Indications for mammoplasty in women

Among the problems that can be successfully solved by this type of surgical intervention, the following are most often:

  • Micromastia-abnormally small breasts;
  • Macrospathy is the opposite phenomenon: the breast is greatly enlarged and often causes discomfort and even pain, while the elasticity of the tissues and the location of the breast correspond to the anatomical norm;
  • Ptosis of the breast – omission of the breast while maintaining the normal size;
  • Reduction of the glands as a result of prolonged breastfeeding (postlactation involution).

In each of the cases mentioned above, the specialist conducts a thorough study of the body as a whole and the mammary glands in particular, and only then chooses the method of treatment and the type of surgical intervention.

Contraindications to mammoplasty

Any surgical operation has a number of contraindications. In the case of surgery to change and improve the shape of the breast, the main contraindications are as follows:

  • The presence of infectious and oncological diseases;
  • Poor blood clotting;< / li>
  • Finding a woman in the period of breastfeeding;
  • Serious diseases of the internal organs.

In addition, according to the current legislation in Belarus and Russia, mammoplasty is prohibited for girls under the age of 18.

Procedure for preparing for mammoplasty

Before performing the operation, the doctor must prescribe the following procedures to patients:

Before performing surgery, the following studies are performed:

  • General tests (blood, urine);
  • Biochemistry and blood caogulogram;
  • Blood test for the presence of viral hepatitis of any form;
  • Electrocardiogram;
  • Ultrasound examination of the mammary glands.

Only after checking the results of all tests and studies and making sure that there are no contraindications, the doctor sets the date and time of the operation.

Types of mammoplasty

Globally, this type of surgery is divided into three categories: operations to increase, reduce and correct the shape of the breast, including making the glands symmetrical.

For breast augmentation, the doctor prescribes an operation for endoprosthetics-the installation of special breast prostheses. To reduce it, conservative liposuction or resection with further tightening of the glands can be prescribed. For correction, a lift can also be performed while simultaneously correcting the shape of the areola-the pigmented area around the nipple.

Of course, it is impossible to describe all the nuances and features of the procedure in one article.
