Breast Lift. Pregnancy or significant weight fluctuations often result in a weakening of the connective breast tissue and decline of the mammary gland. Sometimes it is also simply part of the natural ageing process of the female breast to drop. With a breast lift (Mastopexy) an aesthetic and natural external form and solid consistency of the former 'hanging' chest can be achieved. By resection of the excess breast skin and displacement of the nipple and mammary gland before the operation, an attractive and streamlined shape of the breast can be restored.
Depending on the extent of the lesion, individual scar-saving incisions are used to pull around the nipple, or so-called I- L- or T- incisions are used. This procedure can be carried out in combination with the introduction of a breast implant, so that in the absence of autologous tissue, the breast shape can increase in aesthetic.
The surgery is performed under steady conditions almost always under a general anaesthetic and takes between 1-3 hours. A short in hospital for 1-2 days is necessary. In most cases a drip will be inserted for a short time. The removal of this soft plastic tubing is not painful. A special brasier is worn for a few weeks after the breast augmentation in order to enable the most attractive result. Although movement is allowed after the surgery, intensive sports should be avoided for several weeks. The stitches used will dissolve naturally in a few weeks, eliminating the sometimes painful procedure of pulling them out. Regular follow up meetings are naturally available until everything has healed to your satisfaction.
For every operation:
Do not take blood thinning drugs such as aspirin, ASS, Plavix, Warfarin etc, 14 days before the elective surgery!
