Mastopexy or Breast Lift

Mastopexy is a surgical procedure used to raise the sagging breasts. During the process, the size, contour, and volume of the breasts are modified by plastic surgeons.

Sagging or drooping breasts are caused by the stretching of the skin. This can be due to weight loss, pregnancy, ageing, the breastfeeding process, or genetics. Breast lift surgery provides an excellent solution for the sagging breasts. It can restore your young age and provide natural, long-lasting results.

But before making such a major change in appearance, it is better to research well about the procedure and its side effects. Finding a good surgeon will be the first step towards it. The specialists at Apollo Spectra, Jaipur are highly trained and have years of experience in the field. Discuss your requirements well with them so as to avoid conflicts afterwards.

How is Mastopexy performed?

Before the surgery, the doctor will mark the new lifted position of the nipple on your breast while standing. You will be administered general anaesthesia to curb the pain.

After that, the surgeon will cut open the nipple area down to the crease of the breast. Next, stitches will be made to reshape and lift the breasts. This also includes shifting the excess breast tissue to a higher position, which will reduce the size of your nipple.

After the adjustments are made, the surgeon will close the incisions and bring together the breasts with sutures or skin adhesives. Bandages and gauze will be used to cover the breast after the surgery. Small tubes may also be adjoined to drain excess blood or fluid.

Benefits of Mastopexy

Breast-lift is beneficial for those women who want to feel confident about their bodies. The advantages are pretty obvious for this surgery. They include:

  • Firmer Breasts
  • Smaller nipples
  • Voluminous appearance

Side Effects of Mastopexy

After a mastopexy, it is advised to take proper rest to recover from the surgery. It usually takes two weeks for the breasts to recover and 2-12 months to take their final shape. Below mentioned are side-effects of the surgery:

  • Permanent Scarring
  • Change in nipple
  • Difficulty in breastfeeding
  • Partial loss of nipples
  • Asymmetrical shape and size of the breast
  • Allergy to the surgical tape
  • Reaction to anaesthesia
  • Bleeding
  • Soreness in the breasts
  • Unable to produce milk
  • Extended healing period
  • Hard to touch

Choose wisely before getting a breast lift. Even though it is commonly used as Mommy-makeover, the make-over might not turn out to be what you have expected. And this may result in living with imperfect breasts for a very long time.

Who is the Right Candidate for Mastopexy?

Mastopexy is a suitable procedure for women of any age. It is a common procedure sought after childbirth to get rid of sagging or drooping breasts. To determine if a woman is qualified for a breast lift, they should have either one of the following:

  • Nipples seeming to point downwards
  • Nipples sitting below the crease of the breast
  • Uneven Breasts
  • Unusually shaped breasts
  • Small breasts according to the body proportionate

Mastopexy Vs. Breast Augmentation

Mastopexy is generally confused with breast augmentation. Both the process results in bigger breasts, but they are different in procedure and reason. Mastopexy is the re-adjustment of the existing breasts to make them perkier. At the same time, breast implants are the external substance that are used during breast augmentation.

Breast Augmentation requires the surgeon to insert the implants into the woman’s breasts, giving it a fuller look. Another difference is that breast augmentation is undergone by women with very small and uneven breasts. The Mastopexy process is chosen by women who have sagging breasts due to ageing or breastfeeding.
