Another benefit of this procedure is that the size of the areola can be reduced as, quite often, it has been stretched out, after breastfeeding.
The traditional technique requires three incisions, the so-called “anchor incisions” consisting of an incision around the nipple, a second vertical which goes down to the fold of the breast and a third one underneath the fold of the breast. More recent developments allow us to accomplish the same operation with only two incisions in most cases and in mild cases only a single incision. The two incisions are one around the nipple and a second vertical (called the “lollipop technique”) while the single incision technique is only around the areola.
Dr Papanastasiou will be in a position to advise you as to which incision is best for you after your physical examination.
Generally, bruising is rare and discoloration, if any, will last approximately two weeks. There may be slight swelling of the breasts for up to three months. You are usually functional after one week and can generally return to work at that time.
“Two years ago I decided to have breast augmentation and a full rhinoplasty. I went to see Dr. Papanastasiou and felt immediately comfortable with him and his staff and confident that he was the best doctor to do the work. It turns out that I needed a revision (to correct minor issues) for both surgeries (breasts and nose) and I was met with understanding and openness. Dr. Papanastasiou and his staff were very accommodating and compassionate! There were no hassles or arguments regarding the need for the revisions and this was very reassuring! I’m extremely pleased with the results of both surgeries and I’m grateful to have been in Dr. Papanastasiou’s care ☺️”
“About 4 weeks ago I had lower eye surgery for bags and wrinkles. I was initially a little nervous about the procedure but after speaking with him he made me feel at ease and I felt this was the right decision for me. The procedure took about 1 hour and I was back at work 1 week later with just some minor bruising on my cheeks. I was very impressed with Dr. Papanastasiou. He was very professional and I am extremely satisfied with the results. After the procedure he also called me that night to see how I was doing. I was extremely impressed. I would have no problem seeing him again for any procedure and would easily recommend him. Thank you again Dr. Papanastasiou”
