Breast Lift Surgery

The breast lift surgery, also known as mestopexy or breast uplift, is designed to provide with women just that. Breast uplift operation involves moving the nipples up and tightening the skin around the breast tissue. This way the breasts look much shapely and voluminous than before. This operation can also help resolve any issues with symmetry if one breast is much lower or saggier than the other.

Mestopexy operation can also be performed in combination with other breast altering operations such as breast reduction or implants.

Another important issue that bothers most women is asymmetrical breasts. Of course, no two breasts can look exactly the same. However, breast lift surgery can correct the discomfort of imbalanced breast sizing.

Women who have gone through a breast lift say that it worked wonders on their confidence. Achieving your dream body shape can make you feel comfortable in your own skin.



Breast lift procedure steps

Before your breast lift surgery, your surgeon will make sure that your expectations are understood correctly. You will also decide on the new positioning of your nipples and the shape of your breasts with your surgeon. 

The mestopexy operation is performed under general anaesthesia in a qualified operation room.

Your surgeon will make incisions where necessary depending on your condition and remove the excess skin around your breast.

Then your breast tissue will be moved up so that your nipples are at the predetermined place. Small drains might be placed to get rid of the excess fluid or blood after the surgery. 

You will need to have these drains in for 24-48 hours after your surgery.

Before surgery

How to prepare for your breast lift operation?

Fortunately, breast lift operation does not require much preparation. Similar to any other surgery you will be asked to avoid taking blood-thinning medication such as aspirin. If you are a smoker, you will also be asked to stop smoking for at least 3 weeks before your surgery.

Also, if you fall into any breast cancer risk groups you might need a mammogram to ensure your breasts are in a healthy condition.

It is also a good idea to familiarise yourself with possible risks and complications before you go through with any surgery.

Recovery time after breast lift surgery

Understandably, you might be anxious about the recovery period and how long it will last.

As with any other surgery, you will need to go through some downtime to allow your body to heal and adjust.

Even though the recovery period is highly personal, it follows roughly the same steps for anybody. 

After a few days you are discharged from the hospital, you will need to pay a visit to your surgeon for your first check-up. Your surgeon will check the condition of your scars and nipples. Any drains that were placed during the surgery can also be removed during this check-up depending on the intensity of the drainage.

Your stitches will be removed in 2-3 weeks after your surgery. Usually, your surgeon will remove your stitches in two sessions. During these first few weeks, you might feel some discomfort and pain. Your surgeon will prescribe you some pain killers to help with the discomfort. 

In order to provide good support during the recovery period, you will be asked to wear a sophisticated bra for up to 6 weeks. Furthermore, you should avoid exercising or excessive movement of the arms to avoid disrupting the healing process

Frequently asked questions

The amount of time that a breast lift will last varies for each individual. After, the factors that caused the sagging in the first place will still be effective. As the years pass, your breasts might start to lose their shape. But don’t worry, this process takes at least over 5 years and can be as long as 10-15.

Yes, if you want to alter the size and shape of your breasts at the same time both breast lift and breast augmentation surgery can be performed. Your surgeon will insert the implants before moving up your skin to eliminate sagginess.

Yes. Because milk ducts and breast tissue are usually left untouched during breast implant, you can still breastfeed after a breast lift with implnt operation. Still, you should confirm your condition with our surgeon.

Larger breasts are especially susceptible to sagging due to these factors. There can be a number of reasons for saggy breasts:

  • Decreased skin flexibility with age
  • Long periods of breastfeeding
  • Significant weight fluctuations
  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy

Even if none of these factors is involved, gravity and ageing show their effects as you get older.

Most women feel lost while trying to decide on which operation suits their expectations the best.

The difference between a breast lift and breast reduction is quite an important one. A breast lift can only change the shape and positioning of your breasts while breast reduction has direct effects on the size of your breasts. If you are actually happy with your breast size but would like to get rid of the saggy look, breast uplift is the suitable option for you.

But if you are unhappy with the size of your breasts due to excessive back pain or appearance, you might want to consider breast reduction.
