Breasts can sag and the surrounding skin can loosen due to drastic changes, like weight loss, pregnancy, or simply the effects of gravity over time. Sagginess can affect your physique and even have a psychological impact. A breast lift repositions your existing breast tissue and tightens the skin around it to return your breasts to their former appearance. In case of loss of breast tissue, it can be combined with implants.

Procedure

Breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy, removes excess skin in and around the breast that has been stretched during pregnancy or weight fluctuations. Breast implants may also be used in conjunction with this procedure to achieve the desired result. 

 

LENGTH

RISKS

Unfavorable scarring with keloid formations is possible. In addition skin loss, infection, unevenly positioned nipples (asymmetry), and the possibility of permanent loss of feeling in the nipples and/or the breasts.

RECOVERY

The patient can return to work within one week or more and may resume strenuous activities after one month. The fading of scars may take several months to one year.

RESULTS

The outcome varies from patient to patient. Other factors that may influence results are gravity, pregnancy, aging, and weight changes which may cause new sagging. Results may last longer or be enhanced when breast implants are inserted as part of the procedure adding support to the newly positioned breast tissue.
