Breast Lift

Compare 29 clinics

Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a type of mammoplasty in which a patient’s sagging breasts are raised on the chest to a more aesthetically pleasing level. Breast lift surgery can modify the elevation, contour, and size of a patient’s breasts. Mastopexy surgery can also remove excess skin tissue, excess fatty tissue and overstretched ligaments from the patient’s bust area.

There are two main types of breast lifts. The types of breast lifts depend on whether the patient wishes to reduce or enlarge her bust:

● Breast lift with augmentation
● Breast lift with reduction

Breast Lift Candidates

Mastopexy is recommended for any patient suffering from ptosis. Breast sagging or ptosis is part of the natural aging process, but several factors influence the degree to which breasts sag. There are several types of ptosis, depending on the severity:

● Grade I – Mild ptosis
● Grade II – Moderate ptosis
● Grade III – Advanced ptosis
● Grade IV – Severe ptosis

Am I Suitable for Breast Lift?

Breast lift procedure or mastopexy surgery is not recommended for patients with underlying health conditions such as heart problems and lung disease. Individuals suffering from obesity and diabetes are not good candidates for breast lift surgery.

Preparing for Breast Lift

Heavy smokers should be aware that smoking can have an ill effect on the body’s capacity to heal and regenerate. If the patient is a smoker, she should quit smoking at least a month before going in for surgery. Blood thinners, herbal teas, and vitamins are prohibited at least 10 days before mastopexy surgery.

How is Breast Lift Performed?

The breast lift surgery technique depends on a few factors:

● Breast shape
● Breast size
● The position of the areola
● The grade of ptosis
● The amount of extra skin

Once the surgeon decides on the technique that will be used and the incision spots, the patient is administered anaesthesia. After the proper incision is created, the doctor can begin the breast lift procedure. The breast tissue is then reshaped with the nipple being repositioned higher on the chest wall. Larger areolas can also be reduced at this point. Excess skin is also removed in order for the breast to maintain its position. The area is then wrapped in bandages and the recovery period can begin.

Breast Lift Recovery

The average breast lift recovery period lasts a few weeks during which the patient needs to take certain precautions in order to ensure the success of the procedure. A special medical bra will be provided to the patient by the clinic. The medical bra will need to be worn during the full breast lift recovery period. Sleeping on the stomach is not allowed during the breast lift recovery period as it can have a negative effect on the surgery’s outcome.

Patients usually return to work and normal activities such as sports in 1-2 weeks. Most of the post-operatory side effects occur during the first week after breast lift surgery.

Breast Lift Risks and Complications

Breast lift surgery complications can include:

● Infection
● Bleeding
● Asymmetry scarring
● Decrease in nipple sensitivity

Breast Lift Side Effects

The patient can feel pain, discomfort, swelling and a loss of nipple sensitivity after the surgery. Side effects after breast lift surgery are usually stronger in the first 4 days but will gradually subside. Nipple sensitivity usually returns back to normal in around 6 weeks to 6 months.

Breast Lift Success Rates

The average success rate based on mastopexy surgery patient reviews is around 95%.

Before and After Breast Lift

The results of mastopexy (breast lift) surgery can be seen immediately but the final results of the breast lift surgery will slowly become apparent during the course of a few months. Some time is needed for the swelling to fully subside and for the tissue to fully heal. Mastopexy surgery results are long lasting but the patient’s bust will continue to change as more time passes. The patient should maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to keep this newfound youthful appearance.

Breast Lift FAQ

?
Does mastopexy surgery leave scars?

Mastopexy surgery usually leaves a circular scar in the areola. In some cases, patients can also have a scar in the crease under the breast. Breast lift surgery implies removing skin and tissue, so scarring is unavoidable.

?
Should I have mastopexy surgery if I plan on having children?

Mastopexy surgery does not impair breastfeeding. In rare cases, nerves or ducts can get damaged during the surgery and it may lead to reduced milk production. If you are planning to have a baby it is best to delay the breast lift surgery.

?
Will mastopexy surgery change my bust size?

There will be no significant gain or loss in bust size from regular mastopexy surgery. You can opt for breast lift with augmentation or breast lift with reduction to achieve the desired result.
