Breast Lift

Breast Lift

Over time, women lose the youthful shape and firmness in their breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, aging, gravity and heredity and sometimes the areola becomes enlarged. Sagging and drooping breasts can result in aesthetic disproportion and physical obstruction, limiting many of their physical activities in life leading to loss of confidence, along with discomfort like back pain, shaving bra bands, heating and eczemas in breast folds and point down nipples below breast crease.

For a rejuvenated profile and confidence, breast lift also called as mastopexy is a surgical procedure that can be performed to raise and re-shape drooping breasts and reduce the areola size by removal of excess skin and tightening of surrounding tissue to support new raised and firm breast contour. It is important to understand that mastopexy will not significantly change the size of breasts or round the upper parts any such changes if needed will have to go for an additional procedure along with mastopexy.  If there is breast volume loss, mastopexy can be combined with breast implant to increase both firmness and size creating a younger look and if one needs smaller breast, mastopexy can be combined with breast reduction surgery.

Done under general anesthesia, mastopexy will need at least one day hospital stay. The results are almost immediate and satisfying but will have to wear a support bra until swelling is healed, must avoid heavy exercise, lifting heavy weights and might have to stay away from work for at least two weeks. Decreased sensation in nipples for few weeks to months is normal and the incision lines though visible will fade out overtime.
