Breast lift

Over the years, due to a decrease in skin elasticity, loss of fatty and glandular tissue, and due to the effect of gravity, the breasts drop or ptosis. An operation in which the breasts are returned to their original position using implants, reconstruction or a combination is called mastopexy.

Preoperative preparation

The surgeon must be familiar with all health problems, allergic reactions, previous operations, taking medications, sports activities, etc. Checking the general state of health and basic laboratory analyzes is mandatory for all patients. It would be desirable to stop smoking and taking medicines and preparations that affect blood coagulation.

In the first conversation with the operator, your attention will be drawn to the shape, size and position of the breasts, as well as to possible inequalities. During the preoperative preparation, photo documentation is made, which is complemented by photos during and after the operation, as well as during dressing.

Surgery

  • Anesthesia: Mastopexy is always performed under general endotracheal anesthesia.
  • Duration: Depending on the degree of breast ptosis and the chosen method of reconstruction, the operation lasts from 90 to 180 minutes.

Postoperative course

The feeling of swelling, pain, pressure and possibly difficult breathing are normal postoperative complaints that disappear in the next few days. In the next 4 to 6 weeks, a compression bra is worn, which you get at the Clinic, with the aim of keeping the breasts in their desired shape. In the next two to three weeks, you return to normal activities, while six weeks after surgery you can return to training.

Complications

Complications may include bleeding, hematoma formation, swelling, bruises, infection, and minor irregularities. In most cases, the scars mature and turn into white lines that are barely visible. Despite this, some women have an innate tendency to develop large and thick scars that remain red and tender for a long time. There is no scientific evidence that mastopexy or breast augmentation causes breast cancer or reduces the possibility of breast examination during the cancer detection process.
