Information about our Breast Lift surgery
 
What is Breast Lift surgery?
Droopiness of the breast can be a result of motherhood, nursing and the force of gravity taking their toll.  All this can cause fibrous bands which support the breasts to begin to break down resulting in stretching of the skin.  Alongside this subsequent shrinking the unsupported breasts settle into the stretched skin and gravity pulls them down.  A drop could also be caused by putting on weight and then losing it.
Breast lift surgery which is also known as Mastopexy surgery is an operation to remove extra loose skin from the breasts, and to lift and reshape them, to make them look more youthful.

Why have Breast Lift surgery?
Having a breast uplift should make the breasts firmer and higher. After a breast uplift patients should be more comfortable socially and this should improve their self confidence. The best results are with women with small, saggy breasts, but breasts of any size can be lifted.  The results of a breast uplift may not last as long with heavy breasts.

How is the procedure performed?
It is not possible to recreate the fibrous support of the breasts.  However, breasts can be reshaped by removing extra skin, remodelling the breast tissue and moving the nipples up to the best position on the new breasts. Other options are to reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin around the nipple), or to have the breasts enlarged at the same time.

After your doctor makes the incisions: 
  • The underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve breast contour and firmness.
  • The nipple and areola are repositioned to a natural, more youthful height.
  • If necessary, enlarged areolas are reduced by excising skin at the perimeter.
  • Excess breast skin is removed to compensate for a loss of elasticity.
  • After your breasts are reshaped and excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened as the incisions are closed.
