What is a Breast Lift?
Overtime, breasts naturally change shape and appearance. When breasts begin drooping (known as sagging) it could be due to factors such as age, weight fluctuation, post-pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Drooping occurs when the breast tissue is no longer supported by the skin and fibrous ligaments. Unfortunately, fibrous support cannot be recreated within the breast, however, breast lift surgery can be an alternative solution. At Dr Implants our breast lift treatment will help you maintain the youthful appearance of your breasts.
Our procedures involve reshaping the skin using inner breast tissue to reduce sagging and fight against the effects of ageing, gravity, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations and genetic factors. Regardless of what you need from your breast lift treatment, we can tailor a bespoke treatment that suits you.
Procedure of Breast Lift
The surgeon will insert stitches within your breasts. Depending on the state of your breast tissue. The doctor may insert incisions:
Around the areolae — the darker area surrounding the nipples
Extending downward from the areolae to the breast creases
Horizontally along the breast creases
Can I breastfeed after surgery?
While breast implants will not be an obstacle for pregnancy and lactation, we would advise you to not fall pregnant within at least six months of the surgery to ensure you are fully healed. This will prevent any infections from occurring.
