To correct the size, contour and elevation of sagging breasts, a breast life (also known as Mastopexy) is performed. With aging comes the loss of elasticity of the skin, especially in the breast area. Breasts tend to lose their perkiness and volume, which can ultimately become undesirable for many women. To gain their self-confidence, youthful look and overall appearance, women opt for a breast lift surgery.Read more

A breast lift surgery is not an extremely invasive one. In fact, it is performed as an outpatient surgery not requiring patients to stay overnight. It is performed under general anesthesia and its duration is between 1.5 to 2 hours in length. The two method options used are either the Lollipop or Wise pattern as both tend to provide the most dramatic results. Following the surgery, patients are transferred to a recovery room and are kept there for 1 to 2 hours for monitoring purposes. The breasts will be wrapped in a thick bandage and the incisions covered with gauze. Guided instructions will be given to you by the nurse or the plastic surgeon in order to be aware of the way you will need to care for your breasts for the following few days post procedure. Pain medication and antibiotics, if necessary, will also be prescribed to help alleviate any discomfort or an infection.

Based on several factors, plastic surgeons have methods to choose from when performing a breast lift. These factors include the size of your breasts, the amount of excess skin, the size of the areolas, and the level of elasticity of the breast skin. The different techniques include:
Women who are looking to increase the volume and the lift of their breasts will choose to have implants. Usually, no incisions are required depending on the placement of the breast implant. However, those who have a moderate to severe breast droop, both incisions and the insertion of the implants will be required for a more dramatic result.
With a breast lift surgery, incisions are made in the most easily concealed location with minimal scars. Over time, the scars tend to fade away although that is not always the case. If scarring is an issue for you after some time has passed, then you have the option of undergoing some treatments which will reduce their visibility. It is important to note that no scars mean less lift.
Breast lift surgery is a relatively safe procedure when performed by experienced plastic surgeons. However, we cannot forget the fact that with any surgical procedure, there is some degree of risk associated with it. Patients are asked to read and understand the pre and post-surgery instructions in order to alleviate potential complications.
Recovery time is usually quick with patients being able to return to their daily activities within a few days after the breast lift surgery. However, recovery time is dependent on your overall health! Also, the swelling can take up to several months to subside but the overall results will leave you smiling every time you see and feel how perky and youthful your breasts have become!
