Breast Lift

Home Breast Breast Lift

OVERVIEW

Common natural causes such weight loss, pregnancy, breast-feeding, and aging can manipulate and cause stress to the breasts over time. A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, elevates and firms the breasts by removing sagging skin and reshaping the surrounding tissue to support a more preferred breast contour.  Tunisian plastic surgeons offers several breast lift techniques to refresh and create firmer, shapelier breasts that can ultimately restore confidence and comfort to one’s body. Lifting can be performed with implants and without implants.

INCISION PATTERNS

A breast lift requires incisions to shape and firm the breasts. The most common incision patterns used during a breast lift procedure are:

Incision around the areola

Incisions around the areola and then vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease

Incisions around the areola and then vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease and finally extending horizontally in the breast crease

The size and shape of the breasts, size of the areolas, and extent of sagging are factors that will help our surgeon determine the best technique to use.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 Following this comprehensive assessment, the surgeon will advise on the most appropriate surgical technique, taking into consideration your preferences about the size and shape of the breast.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

NIPPLE REPOSITIONING

In some breast lift cases, the nipple may need to be repositioned so that it looks proportional to the newly shaped breast. When excess skin is trimmed away during surgery, a portion of an overly stretched areola is trimmed away at the same time. The goal during surgery is to reduce the size of the areola and create an even, natural appearance.

SCARRING

With the majority of breast lift procedures, there is some scarring associated with the surgery. This is because when incisions are made to trim away the loose skin, scars are an inevitable part of the process. During surgery, the latest breast lift techniques are incorporated to minimize scarring. A post-surgery scar care program will be provided, and patients are strongly encouraged to follow the plan so that healing can be healthy and quick.

AFTER SURGERY

After breast lift surgery, patients are placed in a surgical dressing that may include a support bra. Swelling is expected and patients should take it easy for a few days. The swelling will start to resolve within 1-2 weeks after surgery and most patients are able to resume modest activities within about 2-3 weeks. A breast lift typically takes about 6-8 weeks for a full recovery.
