After pregnancy and breastfeeding, most women feel low about their droopy breasts. For some women, the breasts become saggy after losing some bodyweight. Similarly, some women simply love to have a contoured and firmer breast. If any of these points are your concern, you should opt for breast lift or Mastopexy surgery. This surgery is advisable for any woman who is less-confident about their breasts and needs to lift the boobs.
Breast lift surgery, also known as Mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that helps to reposition the breasts to a higher position. This cosmetic surgery removes the excess loose skin and reshapes, tightens the surrounding breast tissues to give the breasts a firm shape and youthful look.
Before undergoing breast lift surgery, you should consult with your surgeon. The surgeon will consider your medical history and will assess whether you are suitable for breast lift surgery or not. General anesthesia is used for this surgery. It is a day case procedure. The patient needs to stay overnight at the hospital.
The procedure helps to get rid of the excess and loose skin while tightening the remaining tissue. Moreover, it helps to get a youthful appearance and a toned look.
Generally, the surgeon makes an incision on each breast. The incisions are made around the areola, and vertically as well as horizontally down the crease of the breast. The surgeon will then remove the surfeit skin from around the breast. In case, the patient lacks natural breast tissue and wants to achieve fully developed breasts, the surgeon might suggest combining a breast lift with breast implants. A fuller-breast could be achieved with breast implants.
This surgery helps to raise the droopy or saggy breasts, while tightening the breast tissue surrounding it. This, in turn, helps to reshape as well as contour the boobs.
