Breast Lift

A breast lift is also called mastopexy, which is a surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons in India at CARE Hospitals to alter the shape of the breasts. Excess skin is removed and breast tissue is reshaped during a breast lift to raise the mammary glands.

If your breasts sag or your nipples point downward, you may want to consider having a breast lift. These lifts may also improve one’s confidence and comfort.

A breast implant will not significantly increase the size of your breasts. A breast lift, on the other hand, can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation or reduction.

Risks 

Breast lifts can include many risks like-

  • Scarring- While scars are permanent, they will soften and fade within one to two years. Breast lift scars are usually concealed by bras and bathing suits. Scars can become thick and wide as a result of poor healing in rare cases.

  • Nipple changes or breast sensation- While sensation usually returns within a few weeks, in some people loss of feeling may be permanent. Typically, the erotic sensation is unaffected.

  • Size and shape irregularities- This could occur as a result of changes that occur during the healing process. In addition, surgery may not be able to correct pre-existing asymmetry. 

  • Partial or total nipple loss- During a breast lift, the blood supply to the nipple or areola is rarely cut off. This can cause damage to the breast tissue in the area, leading to the partial or total loss of the nipple or areola. 

  • Breast-feeding difficulties- While breastfeeding is usually possible after a breast lift, some women may have difficulty producing enough milk.

Symptoms 

There are no signs and symptoms that may ask you to opt for breast lifts. This is the type of cosmetic surgery that is optional.

A breast lift can reduce sagging and raise the position of the nipples as well as the darker area surrounding the nipples (areolae). The size of the areolae is also reduced to keep them in shape with the new mammary. 

The signs you may need the surgery-

  • Your breasts sag — they've lost shape and volume, or they've become flatter and longer. 

  • When your breasts are unsupported, your nipples will fall below your breast creases. 

  • Your nipples and areola point downward. 

  • Your areolas have grown out of proportion to your breasts. 

  • One of your breasts is sagging..

It depends on

  • Pregnancy- A breast lift is not for everyone. If you plan to become pregnant in the near future, you may want to postpone getting a breast lift. During pregnancy, your breasts may stretch and negate the effects of the lift. 

  • Breast-feeding effects- Although breastfeeding is usually possible after a breast lift because the nipples aren't separated from the underlying breast tissue, some women may have difficulty producing enough milk. 

  • Size- While a breast lift can be performed on breasts of any size, women with smaller sagging breasts will likely see longer-lasting results. Larger breasts are heavier, making them more likely to sag again.

Diagnosis 

  • One of the top plastic surgeons in Dubai will conduct a physical examination- to know about the blood pressure and blood glucose levels. 

  • Further, the blood levels and other biological analyses will be done before the surgery at CARE Hospitals in India.

  • Examine your medical history- Prepare to answer questions about your current and previous medical conditions. If you have a family history of breast cancer, tell the doctor. The mammograms or breast biopsies will be analysed. Doctors should be thorough with the medications (ones recently taken). Your doctor should also know about the past surgeries. 

  • Physical exam- The doctor will examine your breasts, including the position of your nipples and areolas, to determine your treatment options. The doctors will also evaluate the skin tone and quality. The photographs will be recorded for further analysis and during the operation.

  • Know expectations- Explain why you want a breast lift and what you hope to achieve in terms of appearance after the procedure. Doctors will make you thorough with the risks and benefits, including scarring and changes in nipple or breast sensation.

Treatment 

  • A breast lift can be performed in a hospital or an outpatient surgical facility at CARE Hospitals. Sedation and local anaesthesia are sometimes used to numb only a portion of your body during the procedure. In other cases, general anaesthesia (which renders you unconscious) is advised.

During the surgery 

  • The techniques used to remove breast skin and reshape breast tissue differ. 

  • The technique used by your plastic surgeon at CARE Hospitals will determine the location of the incisions and the resulting scars. 

  • Your doctor may make the following incisions: 

  1. Areola area- it is the dark area surrounding the nipples 

  2. Extending lower at the areolae to the breasts.

  3. Horizontally along the breast creases 

  • Your doctor may place stitches deep within your breasts to reshape your breast tissue and, if necessary, reduce the size of your areolae.

  • He or she will remove excess breast skin and raise the nipples. Your doctor will then stitch the breast skin together and close the incisions with stitches, surgical tape, or skin adhesives.
