Dr. Mrs. Nirved Jain – Breast Lift (Mastopexy) Specialist
A breast lift surgery (mastopexy) raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening and repositioning the surrounding tissue to create a more youthful and pleasing breast contour.
This surgery is aimed at the correction of the size, contour, and elevation of sagging breasts which at many times is a reason of embarrassment and chronic pain in upper back and shoulders. A breast lift surgery can also reduce the size of areolas which have become enlarged over time.
There are various types of breast lift surgeries which include Crescent Breast Lift, Benelli Breast Lift, Vertical Mastopexy Breast Lift and Full Mastopexy Breast lift. Your surgeon Dr. Mrs. Nirved Jain chooses the most optimum surgery depending on the patient’s body and her individual preferences.
A breast lift surgery can be performed standalone or in conjunction with the breast reduction surgery for achieving desired results.
Q- When a breast lift is usually suggested and in what conditions it is advised not to opt for?
A breast lift is usually performed after a woman experiences loss of breast tissue and sagging (breast ptosis). Sagging happens for several reasons including pregnancy and breastfeeding, weight gain or loss, the aging process, and the effects of gravity.
Generally if a woman is breastfeeding her child or she’s planning to have children in the future, it is advised to postpone her breast lift or other breast surgery until after she has completed her family or face the prospect of another breast lift.
Q- Is there much pain associated with breast lift surgery & when can I return to work post operation?
Normally, the pain is not severe, with most patients experiencing discomfort and soreness. Prescribed pain medications should alleviate the pain associated with mastopexy.
You may not feel like doing much for a few days postoperatively. If you are at work, the option to lie down and pop a few pain medications is more than likely ruled out, so it’s best to stay home until you are ready physically and mentally to resume your work life.
Q- When will I be able to see the results & for how long will the effects last?
Although the results of a breast lift are immediate, you should not risk taking the bandages off to check. Your surgeon will remove the bandages in a few days at a postoperative visit and you will switch to a soft support bra which will be worn for 21 days.
Breast lift isn’t a permanent solution to breast sagging. The duration of a breast lift is variable depending on size (effects of gravity), pregnancy, aging, and weight fluctuations.
