PLASTIC SURGERY CLINIC
If you have ever stood in front of the mirror and wished that your breasts were firmer, higher and more youthful- looking, breast lift surgery may be a good option for you. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure by restoring the lift and shape that is often lost as gravity takes its toll.
In breast surgery, also called mastopexy, the breasts are raised, the nipples are repositioned and the areolas may be reduced in size. If you have lost breast volume over the years and you want to add more fullness, implants may be inserted during breast lift surgery to increase breast size.
Breast lift can be performed at any age, but plastic surgeons usually recommend waiting until breast development has stopped.
The milk ducts and nipples are not affected during breast lift surgery, so usually the procedure will not alter your ability to breast-feed.
In many cases, women seek breast lift surgery to correct inherited traits or asymmetry- one breast may be firm and well developed while the other is not. Breasts of any size can be lifted.
Your anatomy, your surgeons preferences and your desired results will determine the specific method chosen for your breast lift. The most common method of breast lift surgery involves three incisions.
One incision is made around the areola. Another runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast. The third is a horizontal incision beneath the breast that follows the natural curve of the breast crease. After the surgeon has removed the excess skin and shaped the remaining breast tissue, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position.
After surgery, the breasts are higher and firmer, with temporary stitches usually located around the areola, below it and in the crease under the breast. Scars will fade with time.
Breast lift surgery is performed under a general anaesthesia.
When surgery is completed you will be taken to a recovery area.
Gauze dressings will be placed on your breasts and covered with an elastic bandage or surgical bra.
Staff of the clinic will take care of you until the healing process is complete.
