Mastopexy – Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted and keep your confidence up. Breasts change over time, losing their firmness and youthful shape with loss of skin elasticity.
Women who are unhappy with the shape, volume and/or firmness of their breasts may consider having breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy. Mastopexy helps raise the breast removing excess skin and tighten the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast. A breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation surgery to increase both, the firmness and size of the breasts.
Breast Augmentation is a highly individualized procedure, that should be chosen only if you feel the need for it and not to fulfil other’s desire. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. Breast lift also repositions the nipple higher on the chest wall.

Your surgeon will check on your general health and explain the options available based on your individual condition. He/she will also discuss the procedure, the risks and the recovery with you.
You can get a breast lift at any age after complete development of your breasts. It can be done before or after you are pregnancy. Breast lift surgery will not affect breast feeding after this surgery.
This procedure is done on an inpatient or outpatient basis, depending on the patient’s condition and the choice of the surgeon. It is usually done under general anesthesia and takes about three hours or so.
The extra skin will be removed to lift your breast tissue up into the proper location. If you’re getting implants, they will be inserted, then closed and breasts will be bandaged. You can expect tiny drains in your breasts for 24 to 48 hours.
On the same day as your surgery you can be out of bed. You can do light activities after one weeks, and should be back to normal exercise in 4- 6 weeks. It takes at least two to three weeks post-surgery to recover. Your breasts will be sore and swollen for a few weeks after the operation. The fading of scars may take about one year.
