Who Is It For?
Nice firm breasts do not necessarily need to be a privilege of young childless women. Even though breasts usually droop - they lose their shape, the skin is loose and the mammary gland decreases - because of hormonal changes, pregnancy or breast feeding, there is a surgical solution to the problem which is called mammaplasty or breast uplift. If there is enough mammary gland left, the operation involves only breast lifting, if there is not, the breast lifting surgery can be combined with breast augmentation with implant.
How Is It Done?
Incisions are made around areolae, down into the under breast folds and then in these folds. The glands are remodelled, excess skin is removed and areolae are repositioned up in the centre of newly well-shaped breast. If the breast lifting is combined with an augmentation, the implant is placed under the mammary gland.
The operation takes approximately two to three hours and is performed under general anaesthetic.
The breast lift treatment requires two, sometimes three, overnight stays at the clinic and a two-week rest period. A re-bandage is done at the clinic on the second to third day before leaving the clinic. Then special compressive bra is worn. It is not advisable to sleep on the side and also all movements involving lifting arms up should be avoided (no heavy lifting, limit use of arms for 4-6 weeks). In the first two months after the operation, it is not recommended to go to a swimming pool as there is a high risk of acquiring infection.
