As the years pass by youthful breasts may sag for numerous reasons (breastfeeding, weight changes) and may loose their shape. Many people say that they have also lost from their effeminacy because of this and feel that their self-estimation have decreased.
Breast lift is the possibility with which regaining the beauty and tightness of your breasts you can feel a sterling, attractive woman again.
For whom we recommend
We recommend breast lift for all those whose breasts have sagged after childbirth, breastfeeding or due to body-weight fluctuation as well as with the passing time.
Hanging breasts may take shape due to physical conditions or developmental abnormalities that can be corrected also with breast lift. The breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation; as well as asymmetric discrepancies of the breasts are curable during the breast operation.
Before the breast lift
At the first meeting you can discuss with your doctor what your expectations are, what result you would like as depending on this the plastic surgeon plans the technique of the breast operation, the location of surgical scars. Depending on the type of the surgery these can be just around the areola (this is the rarest), around the areola and under it vertically, or in the fold under the breast (in case of a sag to a bigger extent).
In some cases the breast lift is necessary to be combined with breast augmentation as well to achieve the expected result. The explanation for it is that if the quantity of breast tissue is less than it is expected, after the breast lift breasts would be tighter though but the operation does not raise the volume of the breasts on its own so the proper, full, tight shape can be achieved only with the combined surgery.
You will make it clear with the plastic surgeon if the correction of the areola or relocation of the nipple is needed.
During the consultation before the breast lift we explore if you have any health problem (diabetes, varicose, etc.). These illnesses influence the surgical preparation so the operating plastic surgeon must know about them by all means.
Before the breast lift more screening and breast examinations have to be done for the sake of your health.
What happens during the breast lift?
We always carry out the surgery in an operating room equipped with modern, reliable equipments and with a professionally prepared and experienced group of doctors and assistants.
The breast lift is done under general anesthesia and requires cca. 1,5 2,5 hours. The core of the intervention is the lift of the nipple – areola, removal of the excess skin and the reshaping of the breasts.
After the breast lift
After the breast lift you usually have to spend 1 -2 nights in the clinic, in one of our comfortable rooms. We place on a bandage after the breast lift that would be replaced by a special bra after a few days, which you have to wear for 6 weeks at least, but wearing the bra is recommended later on as well. The surgical area can be painful for a few days that we reduce with painkillers.
The stitch removal is done on the 3. week after the surgery.
You have to treat the body part indulgently in the next 1 month after the breast lift; you must avoid physical work, strong strain. After the surgery 2 – 3 months is needed for the breasts to achieve their final, youthful and again feminine shape.
