Surgery to the unaffected breast - Mastopexy
A Mastopexy, or breast lift, removes a small amount of skin, breast tissue and fat, to lift and reposition the breast and nipple. Similar to the breast reduction, a mastopexy can be done to provide symmetry to the unaffected breast. This would be a possible option for a woman undergoing a one-sided mastectomy with reconstruction. A breast lift may be done to better match the reconstructed breast with the natural breast. Your plastic surgeon would guide you in deciding if a lift would be an option for you. There are multiple techniques with regard to a breast lift. Deciding which approach would provide you with the greatest symmetry and pleasing aesthetic result is a decision for your plastic surgeon.
