Breast Lift & Augmentation
Improved shape and function at the same time
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure performed to change the appearance and shape of sagging or drooping breasts. This can be due to a number of factors, including general age-related drooping, weight loss, breastfeeding, or pregnancy. During a breast lift, excess skin is removed, and breast tissue is reshaped to raise the breasts making them perter and more youthful.
A breast lift won’t significantly change the size of your breasts; however, a breast lift can be done in conjunction with breast augmentation or breast reduction to improve overall appearance.
A breast lift can benefit women with:
- Women with sagging or droopy breasts
- Women with decreased volume after breastfeeding
- Women with decreased breast volume due to massive weight loss
What happens during the procedure?
Techniques used to remove breast skin and reshape breast tissue vary. The specific technique your plastic surgeon chooses will determine the location of the incisions and the resulting scars. Before treatment, Faceplus’ experienced surgeons will assess the degree of breast ptosis (sagging) to decide on the most suitable surgical approach. The procedure typically takes two to three hours, and you can go home on the same day.
A variety of factors are considered including droopiness, breast size, and preference of scar location. Options are:
a. Breast Augmentation
If you have small breasts with a minor to moderate grade of sagging, breast implants alone can correct the nipple-areola height by 1-2 cm without any lift.
b. Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Where patients are not looking to increase their breast size or have breast implants, the nipple areola can be relocated using a periareolar incision. If there is loss of upper volume in the breasts, this approach can lift the drooping tissue to achieve a fuller, more balanced shape
c. Breast Augmentation & Lift
If the breasts are small and severely drooping, both breast implantation and breast lift should be performed together to increase the breast size and improve the nipple-areola position.
Duration: 2 Hours
Incision: Depends on method used
Stitch removal: 7 – 10 days after the procedure
Recovery period: 1 Day
Grades of Breast Ptosis ( Sagging)
GRADE 1: Nipple is at fold or 1 cm below
GRADE 2: Nipple is 1-3 cm below the fold, but above the lowest contour of the breast
GRADE 3: Nipple is 3 cm or more below the fold and points downward
