Breast lift

What is Breast lift? 

Breast ptosis (or breast sagging) is a natural process that occurs due to multiple factors including age, pregnancy, breastfeeding and changes in weight or hormone balance. The breast tissue loses some of its elasticity, as does the skin around the breasts. A breast lift (also called mastopexy) is the perfect solution for those who want their breasts to return to a more youthful shape. The procedure involves tightening and reshaping the breast tissue. In addition, the surgeon removes excess skin and resizes the areola (the pigmented area around the nipple). It is important to mention that mastopexy will not significantly change the size of the breasts.

Types of Breast Lift     

The type of mastopexy is selected depending on the size of a woman’s breasts and the degree of lift necessary. There are two types of breast lift available:

When does a patient need a Breast Lift?

A breast lift has no real medical indications – hence, it is mostly performed for cosmetic purposes. One should consider breast lift if their breasts:

A mastopexy can also be performed after a mastectomy (which is a partial or complete removal of one or both breasts) for the purposes of achieving symmetry.
It is essential to have realistic expectations: even though a mastopexy can be performed on breasts of various sizes, the results turn out best for women with smaller breasts. You should discuss your expectations with your surgeon in order to achieve a satisfactory result.

Preparation for surgery

During the consultation, your surgeon will examine your health and suggest the best surgical treatment for you. You should discuss your expectations or any questions you might have about the procedure. Moreover, you will be asked about any type of medications you take or have taken (including herbal supplements and over – the – counter drugs) and allergies. It is also vital to avoid non-steroidal anti – inflammatory medications before the surgery, as the aforementioned drugs can increase the risk of bleeding. If you smoke, you will be advised to refrain from the habit for at least 6 weeks before and after the surgery.

Combine with gynecological procedure: save time and money by having gynecological procedure at the same time as your plastic surgery. Read more

Recovery after Breast lift surgery 

The recovery time is individual for each patient, as it is dependent not only on the surgical technique and the type of anaesthesia used during the procedure, but also on the body’s natural healing process. Nevertheless, a one night stay at the clinic is needed for all patients who have had mastopexy done under general anaesthesia.

Depending on your job, you might want to take a week off. It is strongly recommended to return to light physical activities only when 2 weeks have passed after the surgery. Your surgeon may also suggest to avoid any sexual activity for about 2 weeks. Additionally, any sort of strenuous exercise should be avoided about 6 to 8 weeks after breast lift. 

In addition to bandages, you will need to wear a compression garment or a surgical bra. Moreover, drainage tubes may be placed near the incisions in order to remove any possible fluids. If so, the drainage tubes should be taken out in a few days by your surgeon.

Medication will be prescribed, including painkillers for pain management and antibiotics in order to prevent infection. 

Explaining aftercare and revision surgery policy

On average, it takes a few weeks for the swelling and bruising of the breasts to subside. On top of that, you should expect your breasts to be sore for at least a few days post – surgery. The results of mastopexy may take a while – a time frame of 2 to 12 months might be needed for your breasts’ final shape to appear. Some scarring can be expected as well. While there are breast lift methods that leave you with minimal scarring, any type of mastopexy that involves a lift of a more significant degree or even larger breasts can lead to more visible scars. However, the incisions made during mastopexy are usually thin, making the scars less noticeable. Furthermore, the scars should fade and flatten over time (usually in 1 to 2 years).    

Most health insurance companies do not cover the cost of mastopexy unless it is a part of breast reconstruction after a mastectomy.

Pros and cons of Breast lift 

Breast lift is the ideal procedure to attain a more rounded and youthful contour of the breasts. Like many other cosmetic procedures, it can help improve one’s perception of their body image and increase overall confidence. Nonetheless it should be noted that the results of mastopexy are long – lasting but not permanent: the shape of the breasts may still change to some extent. It is suggested to maintain a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle to help ensure the results last. Getting a breast lift may also affect one’s ability to breastfeed in the future, as it may diminish the production of breast milk (although this is individual, as some women retain a completely normal production). There is also a small chance for the breasts to be asymmetrical after the surgery – these irregularities may improve over time or minor surgical corrections might be needed.

As with any surgery, a mastopexy also entails a risk possible complications, even though they are rare. Those include:

What type of surgeries Breast lift could be combined with?    

A breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation (surgery performed to increase breast size) or breast reduction:

What is the difference between Breast Lift and Breast Reduction?    

It is important to remember that breast lift and breast reduction are not the same procedures. While a breast reduction instantly and dramatically decreases the size of the breasts by removing excess tissue, a mastopexy is meant to only improve the shape of the breasts without considerable changes in size.
