Breast Lift Mastopexy Tumescent Technique

breast lift mastopexy with tumescent technique anesthesia and heavy sedationThe wet technique can result in breast lift sculpture with:

  • Less blood loss and bleeding
  • Less bruising
  • Less swelling after surgery
  • Less after surgery discomfort
  • Lower chance needing drains after surgery

Deep sedation means that patients are heavily sedated and asleep during their Tumescent Breast Lift Surgery.

Tumescent breast lift mastopexy picture during surgeryBreast Lift Mastopexy surgery can be done with a tumescent technique. A dilute solution of local anesthetic and epinephrine injected early during the operation changes the nature of the surgery. This is similar to the methods used during tumescent liposuction or super-wet suction lipectomy. This is also similar to male breast reduction with tumescent technique (warning graphic images). Dr. Bermant has adapted the wet technique for use with breast lift mastopexy alone or when liposuction is part of the surgical sculpture.

When Dr. Bermant can use a tumescent or superwet anesthesia, there seems to be even less bruising. In breast list surgery. Full super-wet or tumescent techniques can result in too much distortion of sculpted tissues. It is a balancing act between distortion and tissue sculpture. However, Dr. Bermant has found using the wet technique before breast lift mastopexy surgery has made a major change in his results and patients' comfort.

Tumescent Technique Mastopexy Breast Lift under Heavy SedationAlthough Dr. Bermant has been using low blood loss techniques for years, this Tumescent Breast Lift further decreases bleeding during surgery. Less bleeding translates into less swelling and bruising after surgery. When drainage after surgery is limited, after surgery drains are often not necessary increasing patient comfort.
