Breast Lift

Breast Lift

A breast lift (which is also known as a mastopexy) is a common cosmetic procedure.  Women choose this procedure when their breasts have lost their shape due to childbirth, weight loss, or as a natural consequence of the ageing process. Most women combine boob lift surgery with breast implant surgery or fat transfer breast augmentation surgery to add extra volume.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of your breasts. Our surgeons remove excess skin and stitch together the remaining breast tissue to lift the breasts upwards. They can cut the excess tissue in such a way that your postoperative breasts are a different shape. 

Your areolas and nipples will move upwards as a result of the surgery. This can help to give your breasts a more youthful appearance. Women choose breast lifts for lots of different reasons. More often than not, patients opt for a boob lift when they want to mitigate sagging and droopiness. 

Our surgeons are known for creating a tailored approach. We understand that each case is different, and we will work with you to achieve your desired outcome. Our surgeons will offer you a mini breast lift or a full breast lift depending on the grade of sagginess you have.

The type of breast lift dictates which incision our surgeons will choose. For mini breast lifts, there are two types of incisions. Our surgeons will opt for a donut lift for slightly sagging breasts. This involves creating an incision around the areolas. They will create an incision vertically in the direction of the breast fold for moderately sagging breasts. This procedure is called a lollipop lift. 

Our surgeons use an anchor-shaped incision for full boob lifts. We recommend full boob lifts for women who have heavier breasts with more sagging than usual. 

Suitable Candidates: How Do You Know If You Need a Breast Lift?

There are lots of reasons why women opt for breast lift surgery. The most common reason is sagging and droopiness. There are different levels of droopiness, which is measured in grades.

 

Breasts are considered to be droopy when the nipple is on or lower than the inframammary fold, where the chest wall and underside of the breast meet. 

We recommend a breast lift with implants for women whose grade of sagginess is above 1. Our surgeons can perform both procedures consecutively.

What To Expect After a Breast Lift?

Boob lift surgery can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours and is performed under intravenous sedation. In most cases, patients will be admitted for an entire day. In some cases, we can perform the procedure on an outpatient basis so that our patients can go home on the same day.

Breast lift recovery is different for everyone. Boob lift surgery is not as intensive as breast implant surgery because it does not involve the use of foreign materials. This does not mean that you can resume your normal day-to-day activities immediately. 

Here are some guidelines for boob lift recovery. 

  • You should take at least 2 weeks off work if you have a job that requires light, moderate, or intense physical activity.
  • We recommend wearing a well-fitting bra with no underwriting for the first few weeks after surgery.
  • Your breasts will be sore and swollen for a few weeks after the operation.
  • You should avoid heavy lifting for several weeks.
  • We recommend abstaining from sex for at least 2 weeks.
  • Do not drive if you feel that postoperative soreness and pain will affect your ability to do so in a safe manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose a breast enlargement or a breast lift?
If you have firm breasts but insufficient volume the areola is not lower than the level of your breast fold, you are eligible for a MIBIS breast enlargement. However, if your breast skin is saggy, if the nipple is at the level of your breast fold or droops even lower, a breast lift will be more effective for you.
Will the nipple still be sensitive after the breast lift?
If the nipple is repositioned, the sensitivity and response of the nipples may be reduced temporarily. This usually returns completely after several weeks or months. Permanent loss of feeling in the nipple may occur, as could circulation problems that may lead to partial or complete loss of the nipple. Smoking may contribute to this. This risk can be avoided by stopping to smoke three weeks before and for three weeks after the operation. Permanent loss of feeling and circulation disorders are rare.
