Following motherhood and breastfeeding many women experience a change in the appearance of their breasts. The skin becomes stretched because of breastfeeding, they loose their firmness and begin to take on a droopy appearance. Over time the gravity pulls the breasts down further. At the same time, the ageing process and changes in weight, particularly excessive weight loss, can also have the same effect. As a result, many women begin to feel very self concious about their breasts and dislike the appearance they have taken on.
A Mastoplexty, or breast lift, is the answer for many women. It is a cosmetic surgery procedure that lifts sagging breasts to create a new firmer shape. It restores the breasts to a more youthful appearance, lifts the nipples back to their normal position and reshapes the breast volume.
The procedure does not increase or decrease the size of the actual breast since only skin is removed, not breast tissue itself and in general, women with small saggy breasts tend to see the best results (although breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long on very large cup sizes).
There are different types of Mastopexy and Mr Chana will advise on which procedure will best suit you at your consultation.
