Breast Lift Procedure in Dubai
They may not be discussed as frequently as breast augmentations, but breast lifts are still an enormously popular cosmetic procedure – a woman’s breasts change over time and tend to lose their natural shape, be it because of weight loss or gain, pregnancy, breastfeeding, gravity, ageing and genetics. A breast lift can often rejuvenate a woman’s figure.
Women usually get the misconception that having a breast augmentation will make their breasts stand out. If you also want to raise the level of your breasts so they look more youthful and enhanced, then breast lift is the only procedure you need.
WHAT IS BREAST LIFT or MASTOPEXY?
Mastopexy (or breast lift) is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts, or to reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. Breasts that have lost volume or firmness can be enhanced by a breast lift in conjunction with breast implants. The goal is to move the nipple back to a higher position and to reshape the breast. Patients who are planning a pregnancy should consider waiting because pregnancy is likely to offset the results of the procedure by stretching the skin even more. While future breast feeding ability is not usually disturbed, some extensive procedures may cause the nipple complex to not heal correctly for breast feeding purposes.
WHO NEEDS TO GET A BREAST LIFT?
There are certain reasons why you might need a breast lift. When you are passing through pregnancy, your breast size increases as the mammary glands in your breasts start preparing to produce milk for the baby. This is the reason; your breasts get heavier and look fuller. After the end of pregnancy, the breast size further increasing when you are nursing your baby. In such an instance, the skin of your breasts stretches and they become saggy.
Your breasts might also become saggy due to the changes in your weight. If you were slim and you gained sudden weight, or you were obese and lost some weight drastically; both of the conditions will make your breasts sag. Apart from pregnancy, nursing and weight fluctuations, aging is also a major factor that makes your breasts sag with the passage of time. Breast lift will help you regain the smoothness and tightness of your breasts which will add special touch to the elegance of your personality.
A woman’s breasts change over time, and start to sag, thus losing their youthful shape and firmness. Breast Lift is a surgical procedure which helps improve the looks of your breasts, making them look younger, perkier, more attractive, and balanced by adjusting their position on your chest wall. It also repositions sagging or low-lying areolas and nipples to a more central position, higher up on the breasts.
Before the procedure, the surgeon will usually order pre-operative tests to confirm the status of the patient’s health. Certain medications may need to be stopped prior to the procedure. The patient may be asked to have a mammogram.
Breast lift is usually performed under general or twilight anesthesia as an outpatient procedure (patient can go back home the same day). In some cases, an overnight stay at hospital or clinic may be required. In this procedure, a breast surgeon, will make a delicate incision usually around the areola, and lift the breast by removing the excess skin and lifting and reshaping breast tissue. In cases where a large amount of excess skin is to be removed, a larger incision will have to be made by the breast lift surgeon.
It is important to note that a breast lift surgery does not change the size of your breasts. For larger or smaller breasts, you will have to combine it with a breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.
To do this successfully, a well-trained and experienced team, like ours at Fattan Polyclinic, is needed. Our top surgeons have done breast surgeries with amazing results.
