Who needs breast lift and why?
More recently, silicone forms of beauties from glossy magazines caused a storm of discussions. But since then, not only the use of implants can improve the shape of the breast. In plastic surgery, new, more benign methods have appeared, and one of them is mastopexy.
What is it and who suits?
Mastopexy is a breast lift. It is designed to remove the sagging, which is due to several reasons. The main factors by which the glands lose their shape include: pregnancy, sudden weight loss, breastfeeding and age-related changes.
Tightening recommended for any patient. It is better if initially the breast is not too large, this will save the result of the operation as long as possible. But the force of gravity has not been canceled, and perhaps another operation will still be needed in the future.
The surgeon may refuse to hold the braces if you are under the age of 18, are planning a pregnancy or are currently breastfeeding.In the first case, the breast is still in the developmental stage, in the second - the procedure is better to postpone after the baby is born, and in the third case it is necessary to wait a year after the end of breastfeeding.
Main types of procedure
Depending on the degree of prolapse of the glands, breast lift is performed by one of the following methods.
- With a slit around the areola. This type is suitable in the case of a small omission and is the least traumatic.
- With a T-seam. Recommended for substantial omission and a large amount of excess skin.
- Tightening combined with the insertion of implants. It is performed with a high degree of ptosis, accompanied by a lack of bust volume.
In any case, the scheme of the operation is as follows: an incision is made in the lower part of the chest, shaped like an anchor. The difference in each case represents the size of the cut. It may be relatively small or large.
Features of the operation and the duration of the rehabilitation period
Depending on the method chosen, the operation can last from an hour to three. As anesthesia, local anesthesia or general anesthesia may be recommended.After a brace a couple of days the patient is under the supervision of a doctor, then goes home.
The first month will need to refrain from lifting weights and physical exertion. At this time, it is necessary to strictly follow all the recommendations of the surgeon and wear corrective underwear.
Out of trouble, at first, glandular edema and loss of nipple sensitivity can be observed. All this will pass as soon as the tissue is fully restored. You can learn more about all the intricacies of the procedure by making an appointment with the surgeon.
