Also, known as mastoplexy, a breast lift raises and re-contours saggy and loose breasts. Some patients decide they want breast lift surgery if they feel that their breasts have lost tone after having children.
Patients who have lost a large amount of weight also consider getting this procedure. A breast lift enhances the look of breasts in many ways. It lifts the breast tissue, gets rid of extra skin from the bottom section of the breast, and it modifies the remaining breast skin. All the while, it moves the areola and nipple to a higher place. If the areolas have widened over time, they can be made smaller.
Patients who have had breast lift surgery often also choose to have their breasts enlarged; where an implant is inserted behind the chest muscle.
A well-known breast lift method uses an incision that follows your breast’s natural curve. The scar is permanent, but it will diminish over time. The use of any incision pattern depends on the individual patient and Dr. Scamp or Dr Magnusson’s recommendation.
After surgery, a dressing will be applied to your breasts. Discolouration and swelling occur but will diminish slowly over time. You may notice a decrease in nipple and breast sensation which is normally temporary. Most patients are able to go back to work within a couple of weeks.
