Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Would you like to bring your breasts back to their teardrop, well-rounded youthful perkiness? If so, then it’s time to check in to our clinic for a breast lift surgery. Breast lift surgery (also referred to as mastopexy or breast uplift) is one of the most sensitive procedures done to bring back the natural perkiness of your breasts. Most ladies with nipples hanging lower than the inframammary crease are usually conscious about their appearance. So, come to our cheap breast lift UK clinic, and we’ll get your breasts back to their girlish and bouncy appearance.
At our breast lift UK facility, the procedure can be performed on its own or followed by another surgery like a breast reduction or enlargement based on the results. However, most mastopexy patients prefer to have a breast lift without altering the breast cup size. After being reshaped our breast augmentation London pros, the final outcome is a patient with more rounded breasts and the nipples repositioned where necessary.
Reasons for Breast Lift Surgery
Breast shape and size inevitably change over time, albeit at different rates and degrees of severity. Consequently, the reasons for wanting a breast lift tend to differ from person to person, and patients may voluntarily opt to undergo a breast lift. However, the most common reasons for a breast augmentation surgery for many women are sagging of the breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, ageing, genetics, or having large and heavy breasts that have drooped over time due to gravity.
Experts at our breast lift London clinic may also recommend a breast lift plus a reduction for patients with bigger breasts causing back and neck problems. The breast lift surgery and breast reduction are very similar procedures, except that mastopexy involves the removal of part of the breast’s skin envelope. In contrast, a reduction will have the surgeon remove part of the breast tissue as well.
Preparation for Breast Implant Replacement
During the pre-surgery consultation, our breast lift surgery UK specialists will assess the degree of sagging to see what technique will be more effective for the specific case. The patient will also be briefed on what to expect before, during, and after the surgery.
We perform four main mastopexy techniques depending on breast size, positioning of the nipple-areolar complex, and the degree of droopiness. These are the crescent, circumareolar, vertical, and anchor techniques named after the type of incisions made during the surgery.
The Surgery and Recovery
A breast lift surgery UK lasts between 1 and 2 hours depending on how complex the chosen technique is and whether another procedure will be performed as well. Our surgeon will start by outlining incision guides on the breast to help with precision during the actual procedure. The outline may be made around the areola, above or below it.
General anaesthesia will be applied before the procedure starts. Incisions will be made along the marked area, and the skin between the incisions will be removed. The skin edges are then carefully brought together, and once the breast is in the desired shape and position, they are sutured, pulling the breast tissue and nipple-areolar complex higher.
The procedure primarily works to produce a teardrop-shaped breast, and if a patient would prefer a more rounded look, implants may have to be inserted during or a few months after mastopexy. The patient will need to take time off from day-to-day activities to allow enough time for adequate recovery. This may be anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks, although total recovery time takes at least four weeks. Come to the best breast augmentation UK clinic for the most attractive, natural-looking results.
