Breasts are a symbol of femininity. However, childbirth, weight loss, hormonal changes, illnesses, or age may affect their shape and appearance. As such, women often start feeling insecure and dissatisfied with their bodies. A breast lift is one of the great options to regain beautiful body lines and self-confidence. Besides, breast lift looks natural, and the changes after surgery are not as obvious as after implant augmentation.
Who can have a breast lift?
This type of surgery can be performed when the skin's firmness decreases and affects the youthful shape of the breasts. It is also suitable after childbirth and breastfeeding when the breasts naturally lower or the areolas' size changes. It may also be helpful after losing a lot of weight.
A breast lift can be performed on women whose health condition is good and who are not expecting, breastfeeding, or are not planning to become pregnant in the near future. If the patient is overweight, we recommend putting the operation off until they reach a stable desired weight.
How to get ready for a breast lift?
Consult a doctor
First, the size and shape of the breasts are decided to suit the patient's needs, and all the necessary tests are done. During the consultation, a 3D simulation can also be performed to allow women better understand the size and shape of their breasts after surgery.
Medication use and unhealthy habits
It is advised not to use any anti-inflammatory drugs before surgery as they may increase bleeding. We also recommend quitting smoking for at least six weeks before and after surgery..
How is a breast lift performed?
A breast lift is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes up to 3 hours. It is often performed together with breast augmentation.
