Breast Lift

FAQS

Breast lift is the right procedure for you if you have: Saggy Breasts
Flat pendulous breasts
Nipple and Areola pointing downwards
Stretched skin over breasts
Asymmetrical breasts

It involves lifting the breast tissue along with the nipple at a higher level on the chest. There is removal of excess breast tissue, extra skin and if required reduction of size of areola. It is done under general anaesthesia and takes around 2-3 hours. There are three basic techniques to do breast lift depending on the amount of breast sagging.

Peri-areolar lift : is preferred for small size breasts and sagging. The incision is given around areola in the shape of Donuts, therefore it is also known as Donut Lift.

Vertical lift : is preferred for moderate size breasts and sagging. The incision given is in the shape of a lollipop that starts around the areola running down just above the bottom of breast.

Inverted-T lift : is preferred for large size breasts and sagging. The incision given is in the shape of an anchor/inverted that starts around the areola running vertically down to the crease beneath the breast.

It is important to understand that in all techniques there will be a scar, which gets better with time.

After the surgery, a compressive dressing is placed for 24 hours. Next day, a customized compression garment is to be worn which stays for 6 weeks 24*7. In some cases, a drain might be placed which is removed in a day or two.

Swelling and discomfort will be there for initial few days and it subsides gradually.  After a week you can resume desk job.

The return to activities can be at a gradual pace, that is within two or three weeks of surgery.  You can start light exercise after two weeks, but heavy exercise should not be done before 6 weeks.

Stitches used may be dissolvable. Sometimes if stitches are to be removed, it is usually done between 10-14 days after surgery.

Results can be appreciated immediately and improve over weeks as swelling subsides.

Advancements in surgical techniques and anaesthesia have made breast lift a safe procedure. As with any other surgery there are risks of hematoma, infection, asymmetry, scarring, nipple necrosis, decreased nipple sensation.

Breast lift can be combined with breast implants, breast fat transfer or breast reduction. Dr.Chugh uses a special technique of breast lift i.e. Auto augmentation Mastopexy that involves lifting the breast and adding volume through one’s own breast tissue.
