Breast Lift Surgery: An Ideal Procedure to Correct Sagging  or Drooping Breasts

Breast lift surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can correct sagging   or drooping breasts. An experienced surgeon can provide the best aesthetic   results. The breasts droop or sag due to reasons of pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss  and aging, and this usually has a negative impact on a woman’s self confidence.  Sagging or asymmetrical breasts can be corrected through breast lift surgery which  restores   the   natural   appearance   of   the   breasts.   Breast   lift   surgery   can   also   be  emotionally rewarding apart from the physical improvement ensured. The procedure  involves removing excess skin on the breasts thereby giving them a more youthful  and attractive appearance. The Breast Lift Surgery Procedure Breast lift surgery is provided under general anesthesia which results in the patient   sleeping   for   at   least   3­   4   hours,   which   is   the   duration   of   the   procedure.   In   this  procedure,   the   underlying   breast   tissue   is   raised   and   reshaped   to   improve   the  firmness of the  breasts and their contour. The nipple and  areola  are raised  and  placed  in  a  more  youthful  position. If required, enlarged  areolas  are  reduced by   removing skin at the perimeter. Any excess breast skin is removed to compensate  for loss of elasticity. The remaining skin is tightened and the incisions are closed.   The incision lines are permanent, but in most cases these fade and improve over   time. The complications associated with breast lift surgery are minimal, with the patient  not   requiring   any   further   treatment.   In   case   the   breasts   are   small   or  underdeveloped, breast lift is combined with breast augmentation. The option has  proven   to   be   of   great   help   for   women   who   have   undergone   weight   reduction  procedures or gastric bypass. Following are the benefits of the surgery: •

Attractive and more proportionate bust line 

Achieve  firmer and higher breasts

A more feminine and younger appearance

The Recovery Phase When the procedure is over, the surgeon would apply dressings or bandages. The  surgeon may advise you to wear a support bra or an elastic bandage to minimize  swelling   and   provide   support  to   the  breasts  as they  heal.  Follow   the  instructions  provided by your surgeon as regards taking care of your breasts post surgery. Make  sure that you apply the medication provided for the purpose, and consume those you  have to take orally to facilitate healing and reduce the risk of infection. Consult a Reliable Plastic Surgeon To find out whether you are a candidate for  breast lift surgery, consult a reliable  plastic   surgeon.   An   experienced   plastic   surgeon   will   listen   to   your   aesthetic  concerns and expectations and customize the surgical procedure to help meet your  cosmetic goals. Ensure that the plastic surgery will be performed at an AAAASF­ accredited plastic surgery center. This is of great importance from the point of view   of your safety and to ensure an effective procedure.
