About Breast Lift

Breast Lift

A breast lift procedure, also referred to as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure used to lift and tighten sagging breasts (also called breast ptosis). The surgery is generally sought after by women have gone through pregnancy, have had breast implants removed, or have lost a lot of weight, which has resulted in the sagging of the breasts.

A breast lift may be performed on patients with breast ptosis (sagging breasts) as a result of age, weight fluctuation or pregnancy, or patients who have stretched their breast skin as a result of breast implants.

The surgery involves the repositioning of the nipple, as well as removing any excess skin. The breast tissue is then lifted and repositioned, creating a new and firmer shape. The surgery is often performed with breast implant surgery.

Patients should consider whether they want to breast feed after the procedure, as sometimes the nipples are separated from the milk ducts during surgery. However, many women are still able to breastfeed following a breast lift.

Before Breast Lift abroad

After consultation with a surgeon, it is wise to have a mammogram before surgery to get an indicator of breast health. If the patient is also having breast implants inserted as part of the surgery, then they should discuss the size of the desired implants.

The patient will likely be advised to stop taking certain medications such as aspirin, and to refrain from smoking ahead of the surgery.

How is it performed

There are different methods of breast lift surgery which may be performed. A standard breast lift involves making an incision at the bottom of the breast which extends up to the nipple. This method of surgery can leave visible scarring.

Another method of surgery involves making an incision at the nipple and removing a patch of skin and the rest of the skin is reattached which creates a firmer look. This type of incision leaves less visible scarring.

The incision may also be made at the nipple and extend down the breast which also incurs less scarring when compared to a standard breast lift.

Once the incision has been made, the surgeon will remove excess tissue, and reposition the nipple. Many clinics offer the procedure in conjunction with breast implants if desired.

Anesthesia

General anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Breast Lift takes 2 to 3 hours.

What to expect after Breast Lift

Post procedure care

After the procedure patients will usually spend the first night in hospital, and may have surgical drains to remove fluid from the surgery site. These are usually removed after 24 hours or so. For the first week patients may have bandages around the breasts, and after that the surgeon will usually recommend wearing a sports bra for the first month.

Possible discomfort

Immediately after surgery, patients should expect some swelling and bruising. The drainage tube is usually removed the day after surgery, but can be a source of discomfort in the meantime.
