About Breast Lifting Surgery

Breast lifting surgery (Mastopexy) is a procedure that lifts the breast glands and re-shapes the shape of breasts usually chosen by women after pregnancy, breastfeeding and aging for their breasts to look more firm and youthful.

Breast Lifting Procedure

Breast lifting surgery is done using general anesthesia, which means the patient is put to sleep and won’t feel any pain. The surgery usually takes around 3 hours. The surgeon will start the surgery by firstly marking the positioning where the nipple will be repositioned. Then the surgeon will remove excess skin from the breast and lift the breast tissue upper into a better place. Patients can also get implants at the same time while having a breast lifting surgery. Patients may have little drains in their breasts from 24-48 hours.

Suitable Patients for Breast Lifting

Breast lifting surgery is suitable for women at any ages but for better results breast should be fully grown and stopped developing before the surgery. The surgery is also suitable if the patient is

  • Physically healthy
  • Not smoking
  • Have sagging breasts (breasts that lost volume and shape)

Breast Lifting surgery is a good decision if

• Breasts have a flatter

• Breasts are unsupported and the nipple fall below the breast crease

• Nipples and areolas point downwards

• One breast is lower than the other

• Breasts are saggy or have lost shape and volume

Before Breast Lifting surgery

• Patients must completely quit smoking at least 3 months before surgery

• Patients must be at a healthy status and keep a stable weight

• Patients must stop taking any prescribed medication and herbal supplements

After Breast Lifting surgery

• Patients will attend follow-up visits to the surgeon after the first or second day of the surgery where the surgeon will remove bandages and drains in the breast.

• Patients can feel a bit uncomfortable after the surgery for a few days.

• To support the surgery patients will be advised to wear special dressing or bra during recovery.

• Within 2 weeks after the surgery the stitches will be completely removed from the breast.

Risks of Breast Lifting surgery

Like every surgery breast lifting surgery has some risks even thought they are rare.

  • Scarring – scars are permanent but fade away within 1 – 2 years. Rarely poor healing can cause for scars to become thicker and wider.
  • Change in breast and nipple sensation – sensation returns within several weeks but some loss can be permanent, (sexual sensation is not affected).
  • Difficulty in breastfeeding – after surgery, it is usually possible for women to breast-feed but some women may have problems producing enough milk.
