ThermiBreast Port St. Lucie
We are pleased to offer you ThermiBreast, a minimally invasive procedure that can raise your nipple areolar complex. This may be an alternative to a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure for certain women with a mild droop of the breasts.
Up until ThermiBreast, women with droopy breasts either had to “live with it” or undergo a mastopexy- a breast lift procedure. Unfortunately, a breast lift procedure is a major surgical procedure and leaves scars on the breasts and may interfere with your nipple sensation.
ThermiBreast is minimally invasive and performed under local anesthesia only- no sedation is required. Thru 4 tiny 1 mm needle opening in the areola, the ThermiRF electrode is inserted just beneath the skin. Heat is applied thru the electrode while the skin temperature of the breast is carefully monitored below as well as on the skin surface.
The increased temperature is well tolerated and the heat serves to immediately realign collagen fibers & to stimulate the body’s production of new collagen. These changes result in tightening of the breast skin which has been shown to elevate the nipples.
The 4 tiny needle openings in the areola heal very well and blend in with the tiny glands along the outside of the nipple areola complex, the Montgomery glands, so no scars develop.
Because your body’s production of new collagen takes time, it may take several months for you to get your final result.
