Breast lift

Breast lift – also known as mastopexy – is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to change the shape of the breast. During breast lift surgery, excess skin is removed and the breast tissue is transformed to form the breast. Breast lifting can also improve your image and confidence. The procedure will not significantly change the size of your breasts, but breast lifting can be done in conjunction with breast enlargement or reduction.

    Breast lift is also called mastopexy and it is a very popular plastic surgery performed by a plastic surgeon to rejuvenate breasts that look saggy or droppy. Breast lift causes a return to a more youthful and attractive position. The result is reduced sagging and a lifted, younger looking shape. The procedure removes excess skin and reshapes breasts tissue to raise the breasts.  During a mastopexy, a surgeon removes excess skin and reshapes breast tissue to raise the breasts. It can also reduce the size of the areolas if they become enlarged over time. However, a breast lift won’t change the size of your breasts unless it is done with breast augmentation or breast reduction. Some women experience though a slightly increased fullness due to the firmer appearance, and there may be a minimal change in cup size due to an improved fit. Breast lift is a one –day procedure. It takes about three hours and is usually done under general anesthesia.
    For various reasons (pregnancy, weight changes, age) breast change over time and they often lose firmness. If they become less elastic the skin doesn’t snap back into place after being stretched.
    Hormonal changes, genetics, breastfeeding, and age can take its toll on how your breasts look. If you are uncomfortable with the shape of your breasts and want a younger, uplifted appearance, a breast lift may be the right option for you. Following the surgery, you’ll experience firmer, lifted breasts that can help you be more confident in your appearance.
    Women decide to do a breast lift if their breasts sag and they have lost shape and volume; their nipples fall below their breasts, nipples and areolas point downward, areolas have stretched out of proportion or one of the breasts falls lower than the other.
    A breast lift isn’t always for everyone. If you plan to become pregnant in the future, you might delay getting a breast lift for after you have had your baby. Your breasts could stretch during pregnancy and change the results of the breast lift.
    Breastfeeding may be another reason to postpone a breast lift. Although breastfeeding is usually possible after the procedure, it may be more difficult to produce enough milk.
    While a breast lift can be done on breasts of any size, women with smaller breasts will more likely have longer lasting results. Larger breasts are heavier, which makes them more likely to sag again.
    The first step is to find the right medical centre and a plastic surgeon. You need to discuss with them your goals and expectations. You should also discuss your medical history, health conditions, allergies, previous surgeries and mammogram results. It would be also important to mention whether anyone in your family has a history of breast cancer.
    The surgeon will consider your health and describe your options. The surgeon should also explain the procedure in detail and go over the risks and what the recovery will be like. Your doctor will give you instructions for preparing that will help lower your risk of any complications. They will include such things as not smoking, making sure that you are not taking medicine that may make bleeding more likely, and taking antibiotics if necessary.
    Your surgeon will measure your breasts and assess their shape and nipple position. They may also take photos for your medical records. Before your surgery, they’ll mark the position where they’ll make the surgical cuts on your breasts.
    Breast lift surgery is usually done under general anesthesia. You usually should not eat anything for about six hours, and can’t drink anything between two and four hours before your operation.
    After the operation you might expect to feel uncomfortable for a few days. Your doctor will usually recommend that you wear a special bra or have a special dressing in place to provide the support you will need during your recovery time. For the first week after the procedure, you may need pain medication.
    In 2 to 3 weeks, your surgeon will remove all your stitches.
    During your recovery, it is very important to limit your activity as directed by your surgeon and to report any side effects or problems you might be having right away. You will have to avoid heavy lifting for at least 4-6 weeks after your breast lift.  Most of women go back to work and are able to do activities such as walking about a week after the surgery. You’ll probably be able to do light activities after two weeks and be back to your normal activities by six weeks. You shouldn’t have sex for at least two weeks after the surgery.
    Any surgery including breast lift has risks, including infection. Complications after a breast lift are relatively rare. They may include: infection, scarring (typically, these will fade over time), bleeding, changes in nipple or breast sensation.

    How should I choose the right size and type of implant?

    During the pre-procedure consultation, the right type and size of the breast implant is adjusted. It is important to best present your goals and expectations, for example in the form of a photo. You can also bring a flexible sports bra to try on different implants and decide which implants are the most suitable.


    How will you help me choose the right size?

    The right implant size is extremely important because too small implants can be associated with patient dissatisfaction after surgery. On the other hand, too large breast implants can have a negative effect on our health and cause numerous complications after surgery. To avoid this, shoulder width, chest height and chest width are measured during the consultation. Thanks to this, it is possible to choose implants that will match the patient’s figure, meet the patient’s expectations, but above all reduce the risk of complications and increase the level of safety.


    Do breast implants need replacing?

    If the capsule is leaking or contracting (hardening around the implant), the implants may need to be replaced. This is decided by the surgeon during medical consultation.

    Is breastfeeding safe after breast augmentation?

    Yes. Studies show that breastfeeding a baby after implants does not pose a risk to the health of the baby or mother. They also showed that in mother’s milk bought in the store is more silicone than in mother’s milk from women with implants. In addition, it has been shown that the vast majority of women who try to breastfeed after having their breasts enlarged are able to do so successfully.


    Do implants require a massage?

    Depending on the type of implant, you can start massaging your breasts routinely one week after surgery to minimize the risk of hardening. Dr. Marta is a very experienced authority in the field of breast implants and will show you the appropriate techniques. However, if you have an implant in the form of coherent tear-shaped gel joints, a massage is not necessary.


    Can I do mammography or magnetic resonance imaging of the breast after having augmented with implants?

    Yes. However, be sure to inform the technician about your breast implants prior to testing. It is important to be able to see the structure around the implant for a contrast study. Technicians in every hospital will know how to make additional views correctly.
