Raise Your Drooping Breasts With Breast Lift Treatment at Dr. Kayle Aesthetic Clinic, Dubai!
Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity affect a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume – for example, after pregnancy – breasts implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.
Before Breast Lift Surgery
Depending on your age and family history, your surgeon may ask you to have a mammogram (breast x-ray) before surgery, in addition to some blood tests.
Breast Lift Procedure
Breast lifts are usually performed under anesthesia in a hospital where you can expect to stay one or two days. Mastopexy usually takes three to five hours depending on the technique used. The smaller procedure consists of just a circular incision around the areola, the excess skin within that circle is excised and the resulting wound is closed in a purse-string fashion. Depending on the case, a more extensive approach may be needed and this involves an anchor-shaped incision following the natural contour of the breast.
When the excess skin has been removed, the nipple and areola are moved to a higher position. The skin surrounding the areola is brought down and together to reshape the breast. Stitches are usually located around the areola, in a vertical line extending downwards from the nipple area, and along the lower crease of the breast.
Some patients, especially those with small breasts and minimal sagging, may be candidates for modified procedures requiring less extensive incisions.
A breast lift is normally safe. Nevertheless, as with any surgery, there is always a possibility of complications, bleeding, and infection, which, even if they take place, can be controlled.
After Breast Lift Surgery
The pain lasts for one day and is very bearable. You can expect some numbness in your nipples and breasts, caused by the swelling after surgery. This numbness usually fades as the swelling subsides over the next six weeks or so. Don’t plan on returning to work for a week or 10 days and avoid lifting anything over your head for three to four weeks. Our plastic surgeon performs the treatment effectively without affecting your ability to breastfeed or a reduction in your sensation.
