Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast lift surgery may sag over time due to genetic reasons or due to aging, excessive weight gain, and loss, and the effect of gravity. Even if your breast size is not very large, the sagging seen in the breast destroys the aesthetic appearance. Emptying the inside of the breast and leaving the skin on its own destroys the upright and lively appearance of the breast and brings the breast sagging. With this operation, the breast is not reduced, but the sagging breast tissue is reshaped and brought into an upright shape. Prosthesis can also be applied to patients who want to increase their breast size with this operation.

To give the illusion of younger, perkier breasts, superfluous skin is removed, and the remaining tissue is tightened. The areola and nipple can also be moved higher on the breast during surgery.

According to the patient’s specific requirements and objectives, various procedures might be used during the breast lift procedure. The most typical method entails making a “lollipop”-shaped incision around the areola and vertically down the breast. To give the breasts a more youthful appearance, extra skin and tissue are removed, and the remaining breast tissue is sculpted and elevated. To further lift and contour the breast, a horizontal incision may occasionally be performed along the breast crease.

Depending on the patient’s objectives, the breast lift surgery may be carried out on its own or in conjunction with other treatments, such as breast augmentation or reduction. Usually done under general anesthesia, the surgery could take many hours to finish. Depending on the complexity of the procedure, recovery times vary, but most patients can resume work and daily activities two to three weeks after surgery.

Breast lift surgery has risks and potential problems, including bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in feeling, just like any surgical operation. Before having the treatment, it’s crucial for patients to thoroughly weigh their alternatives, select a qualified and experienced surgeon, and go over any worries or questions they might have.
