Pregnancy, breastfeeding and our constant gravity over the years have an impact on the appearance of female breasts. With age, when the skin becomes less elastic, the breasts change their appearance, firmness and begin to sag. Breast lift surgery is a surgical procedure where the breasts acquire a new look, firmness and position. Breast lift surgery can be done together with breast augmentation surgery.
About the procedure
Breast lifting can be done using a variety of breast enhancement techniques, depending on the breast shape and the desired result. The location of the nipples and the folds under the nipples help determine the level of breast maturation. The nipples of a young, rigid chest are over the fold.
The first step before the surgery is the primary consultation with a plastic surgeon. You will learn more about the main steps of the preparation process, you will discuss your health condition and expectations. Your breasts will be examined and measured by a surgeon, so that it would be easier to select the surgical technique for your case, evaluate the option of implants and discuss other questions you may have. If you are unable to attend the initial consultation, we can always consult you remotely by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Am I a suitable candidate?
The surgery is perfect for women with relatively smaller, saggy breasts, and realistic expectations.
There are several main requirements before the surgery:
Good health condition – women’s immunity and co-diseases are very important, as it can affect the general condition;
Age – younger women recover faster after the surgery, and can expect better results. Also, age can affect the type of implant you want to choose;
Expectations – they have to be realistic. It is important to understand that each woman is an individual, and that the imaginary ideal breasts do not look exactly the same on a particular body;
Understanding of the process – you must evaluate the risks and advantages of the operation with the surgeon, to understand the potential consequences, before any surgical intervention.
Before the procedure
During the procedure
After the procedure
Before the procedure, a comprehensive anamnesis of your illness and life – the diseases you are suffering from, the current state of health, the use of medicines, allergy medications, lifestyle, diet, etc. – will be collected. All of this is important to ensure the best results and the safe state of your health during and after surgery. Before the surgery, you will also need to perform certain tests (mammogram, blood tests) – all the details will be explained during the consultation.
The breast lift surgery is performed using general anesthesia, the surgery lasts from 1 to several hours depending on the size of the breast, and if implants are added together with the breast lift, since that takes longer. During surgery, excess skin is removed and nipples and areas around them are raised (arthritis). This area is formed to create a beautiful breast image. The stitches are usually made around the areola to be less visible.
If breast augmentation is also needed, the implants can be placed under the breast tissue or under the chest muscle (more on this – “Breast augmentation surgery“)
The postoperative phase of the healing process depends on the patient’s personal characteristics and other variable factors. During the first days you are likely to feel pain, the body temperature and swelling can rise up, which will disappear later on.
Typically, a day after the surgery the patient stays in the clinic and medical professional postoperative care is ensured. If everything is going smoothly and you are feeling good after the first day – you can go home. On the first day you can feel stronger pain which will gradually decrease and later on there will be only an ache. For some time, your breasts will be more sensitive, particularly in the nipple area.
The stitches will be removed and your postoperative health condition will be evaluated one week after the surgery. Further visits to the surgeon will be discussed. If the breasts are dry after the operation, a neutral cream can be applied several times a day, leaving a dry area around the seams. The increased sensitivity of the nipples and breast skin will slowly diminish, but will not completely disappear for half a year after the procedure.
Since the results are visible right after the surgery, no doubt, that the recovery period will be pleasant and certainly will not take long.
Each surgical procedure has a risk of complications that may be associated with anesthesia, infection, bleeding, and swelling. However, these complications are rare and are usually avoided. The team of Sapiega clinic will provide all the necessary tools for your recovery and the risks will be minimal as long as the patient cares for herself after thesurgery, as well as contributes to both risk reduction and breast beauty and well-being.
