Sagging, droopy breasts can be discouraging. Many women face this problem because of a variety of changes in the body. Breasts may droop with age, after pregnancy, or due to fluctuations in weight. You may feel like gravity is pulling your breasts to the ground. Fortunately, you can do something about your breasts to have a younger, perkier look again that will make you feel refreshed. A breast lift procedure could be the ideal solution for you.
What is involved in Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery will lift your breasts, raising them up to a higher position through the removal of excess tissue. The tissue can be tightened and shaped as well to give your breasts a boost. It is important to understand that this is not a breast augmentation procedure. You are not going to see a change in the size of your breasts, but you will have breasts that appear to be raised and have that perkiness that is associated with young women.
What Happens During a Breast Lift Procedure?
A breast lift procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Your doctor will use general anesthesia or a form of intravenous sedation before surgery begins. Incisions will be made in your breasts, often around the areolas, to allow your surgeon alter the shape of the tissue and provide it with lift. Excess skin will be removed. At that point, the incisions will be closed, and you will be off to recovery.
Recovery from Breast Lift Surgery
After your procedure, you will be monitored for an hour or two. You’ll be given special bandaging and a support bra to minimize swelling. You may have a drainage tube on a temporary basis to remove any fluids that need to be drained. Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions about caring for your incisions, medications that can help you to feel more comfortable, and restrictions in activity.
