Many women might have sagging and loosened breasts. This might occur after childbirth and feeding to child, due to sudden variation in weight and even due to heredity. This leads to awkward and elder look that women try to avoid.
Cosmetic surgeons can perform breast lift that raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to have a new breast contour with sufficient support and reshaping.
This surgery is clinically known as mastopexy. This surgery can also be useful to reduce the enlarged shape and size of areola. With an uplifted breast profile women can have much youthful looks. This surgery turns the sagging and drooping breasts to much firmer and perkier breasts that provide better aesthetic looks and also helps women to wear their bra and swimsuit much comfortably.
This surgery is performed administering general anesthesia. However it is an outpatient procedure and patient doesn’t need to stay overnight in the hospital. Usually a breast lift surgery is completed within three hours. Cosmetic surgeons create a youthful breast contour by removing excess stretched out skin, reshaping breast tissue and raising the nipple and areola into a much forward position. Proper emphasis is given to reshape the overall breast in suitable proportion with other body parts.
Types of breast lift:
- Crescent Lift: Cosmetic surgeons use this process if the woman has very less sagging skin. Surgeons make a small incision running halfway on the top half of areola. This can be performed in combination of breast augmentation. This is suitable to correct minimal sagging.
- Donut Lift: This involves a circular incision along the edge of areola. This can be useful for reducing the size of areola as well. The resulting scar traces the edge of the areola.
- Lollipop Lift: This involves two incisions, one along the edge of areola and the other running down vertically from areola to inframammary fold. Thus this procedure allows the surgeon to remove excessive sagging skin and reshape the entire breast in a better way. This is suitable for moderate level of sagging skin.
