Various factors like aging, weight changes, pregnancy and breast-feeding, affect the elasticity of breast skin. When the decreased amount of tissue in the breast is replaced by fatty tissue, the breasts may lose elasticity and bag down by the force of gravity. This may also happen due to improper care of the breasts, such as - not wearing a bra or direct sunlight. Although it is not possible to avoid this natural process, it is clear that no woman wants to have their breasts hanging. Today surgery offers the opportunity to improve the general form of natural breasts by breast lift, correction and tightening procedures. During the operation, excess skin and breast tissue will be removed, as well as the location the nipple will be changed. Breast lift surgery is often done together with breast reduction surgery.
Before the surgery doctor collects detailed information on patient’s health, diseases, medicine taken and other important medical information. Women are assigned to do mammography examinations. The patient should inform the doctor about her menstrual cycle. It is necessary to reduce smoking, but it is best advised to stop smoking at least 4-6 weeks before the surgery. This is needed because smoking prolongs the healing process and overall recovery time. Before the operation patient is not supposed to use medicine, especially blood thinners, such as aspirin.
During the operation the areola is not separated from the nipple. That way the breasts do not lose there sensitivity and it is possible to continue breast-feeding after the operation. But if the patient plans to have more children and continue breastfeeding, we advise not to rush into the surgery. During the pregnancy breasts increase, stretch marks may appear and scars may worsen the result of the operation.
