breast lift surgery


Breast lift - Golden Mastopexy - Addresses to sagging or drooping breast. The degree to which the breast has dropped is assessed on a scale from one to three, which depends on the position of the nipple. This will affect how the surgery is performed and will also affect the level of scarring.


Mastopexy with Breast Implant Surgery

Women with large natural breasts may find that their breasts drop earlier in life, simply because they are heavier, and they are more likely to be breastfeeding earlier. However, it can affect all women as a natural part of the aging process, or following pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is also very common to combine mastopexy with breast implant surgery to increase the size and fullness of the breast.

A breast procedure will typically involve the removal of the skin from the breast and the tissue of the breast tissue. This provides an improved shape and better projection. When performed as a standalone procedure, a breast lift will not affect the cup size.

 

Differences in techniques and scarring

Women with a very mild degree of drop will benefit from limited scarring which is confined as a rounded scar around the edge of the nipple and areola. This is called a peri-areolar mastopexy. If the sagging of the breast is assessed to be more severe, a moderate breast lift technique will be used, whereupon a vertical scar will run from the crease under the breast up to the nipple and around the nipple. This is called a vertical scar mastopexy. If you have severe sagging, you may require an inverted ‘T’ shape incision; a horizontal scar along the crease under the breast including and one vertically up to and around the nipple.


There are techniques being promoted for scarless breasts using threads and suspension stitches which are tunnelled under the skin. These are only suitable for very mild forms of breast ‘drop’ and cannot provide dramatic improvements in shape and projection. Furthermore, the results are not long lasting. Although the option of avoiding surgery is attractive, it has to be remembered that this is not an effective long-term solution and does not provide the best results. The vast majority of reputable plastic surgeons will not use such techniques since they are not generally advocated as an effective solution.


Breast lift advice

Most people are eligible candidates for a breast lift, particularly as the procedure lends itself to combined treatment with breast augmentation or breast reduction.

However, if you plan to have children, you need to be aware of it, and you need to be aware of it, and you need to be aware of it, and you need to have an impact on the body and the breasts in particular , and the impact on the breasts a result of being a mother can reverse the effects of a breast lift procedure.

Because of the fact that breast lifts are so popular with patients who have lost a large amount of weight as a result of your surgery. Dramatic weight fluctuations, one way, can affect the results of lifting surgeries, so it is preferable for you to be an ideal weight.

It is also important to acknowledge that a breast lift is not necessarily a procedure that will last a lifetime, and it cannot prevent against the natural ageing process. That said, the results are long-lasting.
