Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to change the shape of the breasts. The surgery removes excess skin and reshapes breast tissue to raise the breasts. It can help to raise sagging breasts by modifying the size, contour, and elevation. The surgery can help someone restore their normal bust and give them round and elevated breasts. Note that a breast lift will not significantly change the size of your breast. Some people can choose to have breast implants added as part of the surgery if they want to improve the size of their breast. Most people undergo this type of surgery after their breasts lost elasticity due to age, pregnancy, significant weight loss, or gravity.
Before a breast lift, your surgeon will review your medical history and discuss your expectations. You might also need to schedule a mammogram, stop smoking, avoid certain medications, and be at a healthy weight. There is a variation of techniques used to perform a breast lift. Your surgeon will use a specific technique depending on the location of the incisions. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, but there are also cases where local anesthesia is used. Your surgeon removes excess breast skin and shifts your nipples to higher positions. Then the incisions are closed with stitches, surgical tape, or skin adhesives.
The procedure normally takes two to three hours. After the surgery, you are moved to a private recovery room to be monitored. If everything is fine, you may go back to your hotel on the same day. After being discharged, you may need to stay in the Samut Prakan for at least 7-10 days to attend checkups and for the stitches to be removed. The recovery period is around 2 to 3 weeks before you can go back to work. The success rate for breast life is rather high, with around 80% of women satisfied with the result.
