Breast lifting: how to lift the breasts?

Have you ever heard of breast ptosis? It’s actually the phenomenon by which the chest collapses. Women often have a very bad experience of it, so they tend to resort to breast surgery to improve the appearance of their breasts and give them a more rounded shape. Breast lifting allows them to regain a redesigned chest in accordance with their figure.

Breast lifting: What is it?

With time, pregnancies, but also weight variations, the breasts end up sagging. Ptosis is the result of a fall of the mammary gland to the lower part of the breasts. The submammary fold is then hidden. This phenomenon can occur at any age and in women with opulent or, on the contrary, small breasts.

For women whose sagging breasts become a source of psychological discomfort, there is a solution: a breast lifting. Breast lifting aims to restore the shape of the breasts and to lift the breasts. The intervention also allows to eliminate the excess skin and to redrape the breasts.

Breast lifting: the process of the operation

Before the operation, you will have the opportunity to see your surgeon during a first consultation. This is then the opportunity to know your needs and to examine your breasts in detail. Thus, the surgeon will be able to propose you a treatment adapted to your morphology but also to the importance of ptosis.

  • During the operation, the practitioner begins by making traces of the incisions on your body using a surgical felt-tip pen.
  • He then makes the incisions, which must be as short as possible, and replaces the areola and nipple.
  • He then goes up the mammary gland and removes the excess skin and redrapes the skin around the mammary gland.
  • Finally, he sutures the incisions with absorbable sutures. Drains may eventually be placed.

Depending on the extent of slackening, the surgeon may perform different types of scars:

  • Inverted T-shaped scars when the sagging of the breasts is moderate.
  • In the shape of a marine anchor for a significant slackening.
  • Around the areola for minimal sagging (round-block).

The first results of a breast lifting are visible immediately. The breasts are reshaped and reshaped. Nevertheless, it will be necessary to wait until the swelling and bruising have subsided to see the final results of the breast lifting.

Breast lifting: anaesthesia, duration, hospitalization

A breast lifting lasts between two and three hours and is performed under general anaesthesia. An overnight hospital stay in the clinic is then necessary for your breast lifting.

The results

The result of a breast lifting is immediately visible after your operation. The breasts are rounder, firmer and positioned higher and symmetrically. You will have to wait about six months to appreciate the final result of your breast lift, while the swelling and bruising subside.

The lifting is truly definitive after a year, when the scars have gradually faded to become fine white lines almost undetectable. It is nevertheless important to pay attention to your breasts, as they remain sensitive to hormonal variations and excessive weight gain.
