Superficial Fascia Suspension Connective Tissue Support and Parenchyma Pillars are Internal Elements of Breast Lift Mastopexy

The female breast consists of gland, ducts, fat, connective tissue, and skin. The breast parenchyma is the functional tissue of the breast. Breasts suspend from the chest muscles and are held by supporting tissues such as Cooper's Ligaments which are part of the SFS (Superficial Facial Suspension System).

Age, gravity, weight gain / loss, and pregnancy can stretch this support resulting in breast ptosis, sagging, and drooping. With this stress, the skin expands.

With Breast Lift Mastopexy Suspension Surgery, the breasts are suspended at a more natural height and excess skin sculpted to this more youthful contour. Skin sculpture scars and incisions are part of the design of breast lift surgery. Breast lift mastopexy depending on skin lifting and tightening alone tended to fail and droop.

Cooper's Ligaments Superficial Fascia Suspension and Deep Fascia can help shape and support breasts and are part of Internal Breast Lift Mastopexy.
Internal Breast Lift Mastopexy Surgery Sculpture and lifting sagging breasts

Incorporating internal suspension sculpture seems to slow future sagging. Dr. Bermant prefers to individualize his Internal Breast Lift Surgical Sculpture for each patient. He prefers his Dynamic Technique selecting from an Artist's Pallet of surgical techniques depending on the problem as found in the operating room. Elements of his Artist's Pallet can include:

  • Breast parenchymal tissue sutures
  • Folding the gland
  • Medial Pillar and Lateral Pillar Sutures
  • Chest Fascia Supporting Sutures
  • and SFS (Superficial Facial Suspension System) support
  • Liposuction Contour Refinement

Internal Breast Lift Surgery is an art form where Dr. Bermant blends these various elements into a more youthful proportionate breast.

This internal breast lift surgery results in immediate "Perky" projecting breasts that then tend to relax somewhat as tissues heal as seen in these photos of Dr. Bermant's Tumescent Technique Vertical Breast Lift Sculpture.

Internal Breast Lift Mastopexy is best individualized for each patient and may involve pillar and fascia deep sutures
