Considering a Breast Lift? Here’s Everything You Need to Know

Before and after breast lift surgery

Have you noticed changes in your breasts that leave you feeling less confident? Perhaps your breasts have become saggy or lost volume due to aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. If so, you might be considering a breast lift.

For this procedure, choosing the right surgeon and clinic is crucial. Nirunda Clinic is a leading aesthetic clinic in Bangkok for breast lift surgeries, and we are home to board-certified and experienced professionals like Dr. Poonpissamai Suwajo, who has extensive expertise in breast lifts and other cosmetic surgeries.

However, before you make any decisions, let’s get you acquainted with all you need to know about breast lift surgery.

What Is Breast Lift Or Mastopexy?

Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical method for reshaping and lifting sagging breasts. During the surgery, excess skin is removed, and the remaining tissue is tightened to create a more youthful breast contour. This procedure can address concerns like:

  • Drooping or sagging breasts
  • Stretched or loose skin
  • Loss of breast volume
  • Nipples that have pointed downwards

Several factors can lead women to consider a breast lift. As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity, which can cause breasts to sag and lose their perkiness. Significant weight loss can also contribute to this issue, leaving behind loose skin and decreased breast volume. Additionally, pregnancy and breastfeeding, while beautiful experiences, can cause lasting changes in breast size and shape, leading some women to seek surgical correction so that they can feel confident about their bodies again.

Types Of Mastopexy

Now, let’s get acquainted with the different types of mastopexy. Mastopexy utilizes various surgical techniques tailored to your individual needs and desired outcomes. Some standard types include:

  • Periareolar lift: This technique focuses on removing excess skin around the areola (the darker circle surrounding the nipple) and lifting the nipples to a higher position.
  • Lollipop lift: This technique involves a vertical incision around the areola and down the crease beneath the breast, allowing for more extensive skin removal and reshaping.
  • T-anchor lift: This technique utilizes a T-shaped incision to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying tissue for a more dramatic lift and reshaping.

Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery

There are several benefits to undergoing breast lift surgery. These include:

  • Enhanced breast shape and contour: The surgery can create a more defined and perkier appearance.
  • Improved breast symmetry: Mastopexy can correct unevenness in breast size or shape.
  • Restored youthful appearance: The lifted and reshaped breasts can create a more youthful overall look.
  • Increased confidence and self-esteem: Feeling good about your appearance can significantly boost confidence and self-esteem.

The Procedure

Before breast lift surgery, you’ll have a detailed consultation with your doctor. During this consultation, your doctor will:

  • Discuss your goals and expectations for the surgery
  • Evaluate your overall health and medical history
  • Perform a physical examination of your breasts
  • Explain the different surgical techniques and recommend the most suitable option for you
  • Discuss potential risks and complications associated with the surgery

The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. The specific steps will vary depending on the chosen technique but generally involve:

  • Making incisions around the areola, down the breast crease, or in a T-shape
  • Removing excess skin
  • Tightening the underlying breast tissue
  • Repositioning the nipples to a higher position (if needed)
  • Closing the incisions with sutures

Recovery and Aftercare

Following your breast lift surgery, it’s normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. This is a temporary side effect of the healing process and will subside gradually. Your doctor will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

These instructions will likely involve wearing a special surgical bra for the first few weeks. This bra provides essential support and compression, minimizing swelling and aiding proper healing. You’ll also be given specific instructions on how to care for your incision sites, which may involve gentle cleaning, applying prescribed ointments, and keeping the area dry. You will also need to limit any strenuous activity for a specific period to allow your body to concentrate on recovery. Pain management medication will also be prescribed to manage any post-operative discomfort.

If you experience any unexpected pain, excessive swelling, or signs of infection, don’t hesitate to contact your doctor or the clinic staff. Most patients fully recover within a few weeks, with swelling and bruising gradually diminishing. By diligently following the aftercare instructions, you can optimize your healing process and enjoy your beautiful new results.
