Breast lift surgery is designed to correct volume loss or sagginess in a woman’s breasts. There are several reasons and causes for breasts to sag, including age, breastfeeding, and the effect of gravity over time. A breast lift procedure is a corrective surgery to reconstruct sagging breasts and deliver perkier and more youthful results. However, it is not a permanent solution for sagging breasts, but a corrective surgery to reshape the breasts instead.
Should I Consider a Breast Lift?
A breast lift surgery is recommended to women who already had children and want to reclaim their body contours by reshaping sagging breasts. This procedure will result in no more breastfeeding, which is why we recommend it to women who will not need to breastfeed anymore. By booking a consultation with one of our professional surgeons, they can give you an overview on how mastopexy can work for you and the potential results that you can expect from the surgery itself. Our dedicated team can also request a mammogram if they have any concerns regarding your lineage or age.
During a breast lift procedure, the surgeon removes excess fat and skin tissue from the breasts to reshape them. The nipples will be relocated as well once the breasts are reshaped. Therefore, you will not be able to breastfeed anymore. Seeing that the breasts have been completely reshaped, it is crucial that you set aside the necessary time for recovery to allow your breasts to adapt to their new shape without compromising the recovery process.
You can expect some pain and discomfort for a few days after your breast lift surgery. Not to worry, as your surgeon will prescribe specific painkillers that will not interfere with blood coagulation to manage any pain and discomfort during this time. If you are a smoker, prepare to quit smoking for at least 2 months before and after your surgery. This optimises oxygen flow in your body to assist your body and deliver the best results. Your Surgeon can also request that your wear a surgical bra throughout the recovery period.
