Breast Lift Surgery

Breasts tend to lose tightness, shape, and volume due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or reasonable weight loss. For some women, the problem lies in genes, and without facing the mentioned scenarios, their breasts look saggy and droopy. Fortunately, to every problem, there is a solution. So for saggy breasts, the solution lies in breast lift surgery.

What is Breast Lift Surgery? 

Breast Lift, also known as mastopexy, involves lifting sagging breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues. While it primarily reshapes the breast tissues and can sometimes result in a minor reduction in breast size due to the removal of excess skin, it’s important to consider your future plans. If you’re considering having more children, this might impact the longevity of the surgery results, as pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause further changes to your breasts.

Breast Lift Types

Breast lift surgery can be performed using various techniques that are explained below:

Crescent lift – is the least invasive technique and involves removing a crescent of skin at the top of the nipple.

Benelli lift – involves making a donut shape incision around the areola to remove skin and tissue.

Lollipop lift or vertical scar lift – involves making the incision around the areolas that extends vertically down to the breast crease.

Anchor lift – the incision is made around the areola that travels down around the breast crease

Following the surgeon’s specific instructions for wound care is crucial for preventing infection and promoting healing. However following these general guidelines to speed up your recovery;

  • Sleep on your back
