Breast lift procedure mostly performed on women who have smaller breasts, or breasts that are saggy. The most common form of such a surgery is known as mastopexy. During a mastopexy, the nipple is re-positioned higher on the chest wall. During such a process, the patient does not have to spend the night in the hospital. The overall surgery takes about 3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
Breast Lift Procedure is also quite famous, since it can be integrated with breast implants. Women who want to grow their breasts in size tend to incorporate breast lifts along with breast implants so their skin looks tight and their breasts can be enhanced as well.
Before the surgery takes place, there are a few things that the patient needs to take care of. The surgeon will most definitely take care of all hygienic and health-related issues.
The main complications that may arise from such a surgery are bleeding, infection and scarring. All instructions will be given to you prior to the operation. For instance, you will not be allowed to smoke or take alcohol or any medications at least 2 weeks prior to such a surgery.
The whole operation takes place inside a hospital setting, just like any other surgery. This can, however, also take place in the personal room of the doctor; depending on how the surgeon wants to handle things.
At first the surgeon is going to mark a proper position where your nipple should be placed. Later, you’ll be given a general anaesthesia and you will be carried to the operation theatre.
All the extra skin will be removed by the surgeon in order to gift the perfect lift to the breasts. In case of implants, however, the process will involve other incisions.
Once the operation is complete, you will have to take care of a lot of things. In case of incisions, you are not supposed to expose them to the sunlight. Moreover, make sure that you take a shower after 48 hours. And make sure it’s a shower and you’re not putting yourself into a bath tub because that is going to damage any stitches on your body.
You will be able to return to your job after a week if it’s not very physical. In case it is physical, you will be going back after four to six weeks; so make sure that you prepare leaves in advance.
The cost of this process ranges between $6000-$9000.
