Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Weight fluctuation, aging, pregnancy, breast feeding, and genetics can cause the breast skin and tissue to lose elasticity and sag. Often, the areola can dilate and become disproportionately large and point downward as well. A breast lift is a procedure that tightens the skin, lifts the nipple and areola, and reshape the breasts for a firmer and more youthful look.
Women who have sagging breasts (breast ptosis) or asymmetrical breasts especially after breast reconstruction following mastectomy are good candidates for breast lift.
Breast lift is typically performed under general anaesthesia as an outpatient day surgery. Patients often experience some discomfort for 3 to 7 days after surgery which can be managed with pain medication. You can expect to return to work and driving after few days of recovery, as you should feel more like yourself. You should take extra care of your breasts for at least 1 month and avoid upper body exercises for at least 6 weeks.
