Breast Lift Surgery

Mastopexy (is the plastic surgery mammoplasty procedure for raising sagging breasts upon the chest of the woman; by correcting and modifying the size, contour, and elevation of the breasts. In a breast-lift surgery to re-establish an aesthetically proportionate bust for the woman, the critical corrective consideration is the tissue viability of the nipple-areola complex (NAC), to ensure the functional sensitivity of the breasts for lactation and breast-feeding. The breast-lift correction of a sagging bust is a surgical operation that cuts and removes excess tissues overstretched suspensory ligaments, excess skin from the skin-envelope, and transposes the nipple-areola complex higher upon the breast hemisphere. Psychologically, a mastopexy procedure to correct breast ptosis is not indicated by medical cause or physical reason, but by the self-image of the woman; that is, the combination of physical, aesthetic, and mental health requirements of the patient.

Steps taken:

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that takes a woman’s sagging breasts and lifts it up higher to give it a more youthful look. This procedure is sometimes done with the additional help of breast implants to further address the problem of sagging skin and loose, hanging breasts. Breast lifts are often done under general anesthesia, which means the patient will be asleep when this happens. There are a couple of very popular techniques that doctors use these days for breast lifts. One of them is the doughnut breast lift mastopexy and the other one is the anchor-shaped breast lift.

Just like with any kind of surgery, during the first few days of the breast surgery recovery time, it is expected that there will be some discomfort. There will be times though when you have resumed your normal activities, slight pain will be felt, this is normal. Normal activities following breast lift and breast reduction surgery may be resumed after a few days, but lifting heavy objects are not advised until a month after the surgery. Swelling, numbness, uncomfortable sensations, slight Discoloration will be experienced. The proper thing to do during breast surgery recovery is to simply follow doctor’s orders and let body’s natural healing process take charge. Pushing to normalise things might just lead to complications or may result in complications.

Precautions:

The recovery period of most breast lifts, with or without the added increase of breast size that augmentation does, usually takes around a few months for total healing.

Smoking and drinking alcohol is definitely forbidden during the first month or so of the healing process, since these substances hinder proper healing of the wounds and the stitches. The first two weeks of the recovery period are critical and should be the time when the utmost care is taken. Women who just had breast lift surgery are not allowed to sleep on their stomachs, are not allowed to perform strenuous tasks or to do heavy exercises and are not allowed to put any pressure on their chest.

Support bandages and a surgical bra are often worn by the patient immediately after the operation. This is to help keep the breasts from getting deformed while healing.

Advantages:

The breast-lift correction surgeries are intended for youthful body posture and increased sexual appeal in women.
