What is a Breast Lift Surgery?

A breast lift operation, also known as a mastopexy or breast uplift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. This procedure can also improve the position of the areola and nipple, resulting in a more youthful and perky appearance.

Breast sagging, or ptosis, can occur for a variety of reasons, including aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. The operation can help to restore the shape and firmness of your breasts, improve your confidence and self-esteem, and enhance your overall body contour.

Types of Breast Lifts

There are several types of the operation, and the specific technique used will depend on the degree of sagging and the desired outcome. Here are some of the most common types of breast lifts:

  • Crescent lift: This technique involves removing a small amount of skin above the areola and repositioning the nipple slightly higher.
  • Peri-areolar or “donut” lift: This technique involves making an incision around the edge of the areola and removing a donut-shaped piece of skin. The remaining skin is then pulled together to lift the breast.
  • Vertical or “lollipop” lift: This technique involves making an incision around the edge of the areola and down the center of the breast to the crease. The excess skin is then removed, and the remaining skin is reshaped and tightened to lift the breast.
  • Anchor or “inverted T” lift: This technique involves making an incision around the edge of the areola, down the center of the breast, and along the crease. The excess skin is then removed, and the remaining skin is reshaped and tightened to lift the breast.

Am I a Candidate for the Surgery?

If you’re bothered by sagging breasts and are in good overall health, you may be a candidate for a breast lift surgery. It’s important to have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure and to understand the risks and benefits.

During your consultation at Aktif International, your surgeon will evaluate your medical history, examine your breasts, and discuss your goals and concerns to determine if this surgery is the right procedure for you.

How is the Surgery Performed?

A breast lift operation is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take two to three hours to complete. The specific technique used will depend on the degree of sagging and the desired outcome.

During the procedure, your surgeon will make incisions in the breast tissue and remove excess skin. The remaining skin will then be reshaped and tightened to lift the breast. If necessary, the areola and nipple may also be repositioned to a more youthful location.

After the breast tissue has been reshaped and tightened, the incisions will be closed with sutures. You will then be moved to a recovery room, where you will be monitored until you are ready to go home.

What are the Risks and Benefits of the Operation?

While the operation carries some risks, including bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in nipple sensation, the potential benefits such as improved breast shape, enhanced symmetry, increased self-confidence, expanded clothing options, and long-lasting results often make it a worthwhile procedure. However, the benefits can outweigh the risks, including:

  • Firmer and more youthful-looking breasts
  • Improved breast symmetry and contour
  • Boosted confidence and self-esteem
  • Enhanced clothing options and overall appearance
