Breast lift surgery is an option for women who, although satisfied with the size of their breast, are unhappy about sagging and loss of tone. A breast lift is indicated to correct sagging breasts, without changing your cup size.
Reasons for Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)
- To reshape sagging breasts and improve contour.
- To increase the firmness of soft breasts
- To increase the volume of breasts, in combination with the insertion of an artificial implant
- To raise the position of downward pointing nipples
- To reduce the size of the areolas.
If you are happy with your size and just wish to correct sagginess or breast droop, then a breast lift alone is the correct procedure. If you are requesting breast augmentation after breast feeding, you may also require a breast lift to correct sagging.
When having a breast reduction, the patient automatically also has a breast lift as part of the procedure.
The surgical scars, procedures, anaesthesia and postoperative care are very similar to a breast reduction (see above). The main difference is that no breast tissue is removed with a pure breast lift, and thus the procedure is shorter, and drain tubes are usually not required.
'Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.'
