Here is a list of the most popular questions asked about breast lift surgery.
What is ‘breast lift’ surgery?
Breast lift surgery or ‘mastopexy’ is the name given to the procedure which lifts and firms the breasts. It does NOT increase the size of the breasts. If you are looking to enlarge the size of your breasts then visit our section on breast augmentation (enlargement).
This is usually performed to correct sagging or drooping breasts: this can happen as a result of childbirth which causes a loss in breast size as well as stretching the skin. The breasts will also start to droop due to the effects of gravity and the ageing process. Over time they lose their tone and elasticity.
It can be performed as a stand alone technique or in conjunction with breast augmentation. In the latter case, this means that the breasts become firmer as well as bigger. Lifting the breasts means a return to a more youthful and shapely appearance. However, this is not a permanent affect as the ageing process can not be held off for ever. So, you may need to repeat this surgery at a later date.There are several techniques for breast lift surgery which are based upon different types of incisions. These range from the most popular ‘anchor’ shaped incision through to the ‘doughnut’ shaped incision. Some women will require more extensive incisions whereas others will be suitable for smaller, less extensive incisions.
This procedure usually takes around two to two and a half hours and is performed under a general anaesthetic. You will experience some bruising and slight swelling afterwards but this will ease. You will be prescribed painkillers to control any discomfort.
