Mastopexy surgery – How Will a Breast Lift Affect You?

Breast lift surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure that raises and reshapes a woman’s breasts. It is designed for women who have sagging breasts because of a variety of reasons. Time and gravity are both influencing factors regarding the shape and size of a woman’s breasts. As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity, which can lead to breasts losing their firmness. Gravity also plays a role, dragging down large breasts to make them sag as a woman grows older. Therefore, mastopexy surgery becomes a feasible option to consider when you want to address the shape of your breasts.

Pregnancy and nursing can also cause the breasts to lose volume and shape. The shape loss can impact the contour of a woman’s body, making her more self-conscious. A breast lift can address this loss in shape and firmness. It can also reduce the size of the areolas. However, there will be some consequences to this surgery. Since the nipple will be relocated to a more desired position once the breast has been reshaped, you will not be able to breastfeed afterwards. Therefore, we suggest that candidates only consider mastopexy after their planned pregnancies.

Mastopexy surgery is a feasible solution for sagging breasts, as the procedure consists of reshaping the breasts to a perkier and more youthful shape. Therefore, the nipple will also be relocated onto the remaining skin once the shape has been addressed. After the surgery, the breasts are firmer and pushed up, resulting in a more desired shape for an enhanced body contour. There will be dietary adjustments required by the patient, since the procedure takes place under general anaesthesia. We also recommend that smokers quit smoking before and after the procedure to ensure optimal results and better cell recovery afterwards.

Cosmetic surgical procedures are tailored to enhance the appearance of your body. Therefore, keeping your expectations realistic and in line with your body is highly recommended for every woman considering mastopexy. By consulting your surgeon before-hand, you can get the necessary information on how to prepare and what to expect from such a surgical procedure. We recommend that a patient is in a healthy physical state to minimise any possible complications and result in optimal recovery time from the surgery itself.
