Breast Lift (Mastopexy) |, , , ,

Breast lift surgery is a treatment for women who want to enhance the shape, size, elevation, and contours of their breasts by removing excess skin and, in many cases, by reducing the size of their areola.

The effects of childbirth, breastfeeding, weight gain, and/or aging tend to stretch out the breasts and areola. In this procedure, the breast tissue is reshaped to help the breasts look younger and more voluptuous. Breasts will regain their youthful firmness and lift, effectively winding back the clock.

When is the Breast Lift Procedure Advisable?

A breast lift is one of the subtler enhancements to your breasts. If you are generally satisfied with the size and shape but want a more youthful look, this treatment is for you. However, because childbirth and breastfeeding tend to alter the size and shape of the breasts, the best candidates are healthy mothers.  It’s important to have no immediate plans for another child.

For instance, if you are not satisfied with the size of your breasts, then breast reduction and even augmentation are the more appropriate course. Each case presents different considerations. These are discussed in detail at the initial consultation.

The typical candidates are women who have the following breast types:

  • Sagging formless breasts that have lost firmness
  • Elongated, droopy, or flat breasts
  • Stretched breasts and areola
  • Nipples that droop below the crease or point downwards
  • Uneven breasts that are lower on one side

Overview of the Breast Lift Procedure

 

Consultation

The initial step for any breast lift procedure is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with our experienced specialist. Also, you may be asked to do a mammogram to assess breast tissue health.

Different surgical elements are then evaluated to determine how much excess fat and skin must be removed and the degree of sagging. Then, our specialist cosmetic surgeon is often able to provide you with realistic expectations. He can help you visualize the effects of surgery on your breasts in a mock-up of what surgery results can produce.

Procedure 

Most importantly, before breast lift treatment, our specialist surgeon may order various tests to ensure that you’re in ideal health for the treatment.

You should expect the surgery to last 2 to 3 hours as an outpatient procedure. The specialist surgeon has the experience to apply a wide variety of surgical techniques to lift and contour different types of breasts.

Finally, the breast lift requires an additional step of removing the ideal volume of inner breast tissue to join the two-incision lines together tightly. After the new lines are joined and the firm contours are formed, the excess skin is trimmed off, and the areola is reduced and/or repositioned.

Recovery

A special surgical bra or wrap is used post-surgery to limit stress on the sutures for the first two weeks. After the stitches are removed, you will wear a supportive bra for a few additional weeks. Happily, the results are immediate and improve each day as swelling diminishes.

WHICH SURGEON TO CHOOSE?

Firstly, do your homework! Check out Peru’s medical college website (Colegio Medico del Peru) and see if the doctor really has a RNE (National Registry of Specialist) license. Many doctors only have a CMP license, but this is not enough for invasive, specialist procedures.

Finally, talk to us. Make contact and have an in-depth conversation is a good starting point. This is important because you get a feel for the type of clinic we are and the service you can expect to receive.
