There are many techniques for breast lift. The most common breast lift procedure begins with the surgeon making a three-part, anchor-shaped incision.
The first incision circles the areola; the second moves vertically down from the areola to the crease beneath the breast; the third moves horizontally beneath the breast, following the natural curve of the crease.
When the incisions are made, the surgeon removes the unwanted skin, moves the nipple and areola up to a higher position, and brings the skin that was above the areola (in its old position) down and together, to reshape the breast.
At the end of the operation, the surgeon may temporarily put a small, thin drainage tube under the skin of each breast to drain blood and fluids that collect there. Finally, the surgeon closes the incisions with small stitches and puts a bandage on the area to protect it from infection.
Local anaesthesia and complementary sedation, or general anaesthesia.
Between 1H30 and 3 hours.
After surgery, you’ll wear an elastic bandage or a surgical bra over gauze dressings. Your breasts will be bruised, swollen, and uncomfortable for a day or two, but the pain shouldn’t be severe. Any discomfort you do feel can be relieved with medications prescribed by your surgeon.
Within a few days, the bandages or surgical bra will be replaced by a soft support bra. You’ll need to wear this bra around the clock for three to four weeks, over a layer of gauze.
You should be able to return to non-physical work about 10 days after surgery.
You’ll need to limit your exercise and activities during this time.
You’ll also have to avoid sex for a week.
You may find that your breasts and nipples are less sensitive, or have no feeling at all. Sensation usually returns after several weeks.
Your breasts will probably be sore for two or three days. The pain is greatest within the first 48 hours, but improves with each day and is usually relieved by pain medications.
Your stitches will be removed within one week to ten days.
Most bruising, swelling, should subside within three to six weeks.
This surgery does leave permanent scars. But they will fade in time and are easily hidden by clothing.
You may hear promises of no scar breast lift surgical methods from various plastic surgeons, you should understand that there is no way to avoid scarring in any surgical procedure that incorporates incisions within its method. This is true of obtaining a pacemaker and it also applies to breast lift plastic surgery.
Luckily, there have been new developments in breast lift techniques that can minimize the amount of visible scarring. There’s no such thing as a no scar breast lift yet, but depending on the choice of technique, you could be virtually scarless. Breast lift surgery is still the only way to go when it comes to fixing saggy breasts.
Most scarless breast lift techniques are just variations on the classic breast lift incision. The common incision is a cut around the nipple and extending down to the base.This results in the largest change in breast firmness and shape. It tends to leave extensive scarring though, so other incisions were developed.
There is the periareolar incision that is only around the nipple, the short scar that is vertical from the base of the breast with extensions to the side, and the inverted-T cut which goes along the base and up the center to the nipple.
All of these techniques essentially isolate one part of the traditional incision and use it to perform a breast lift with less dramatic results.
It’s a compromise that can win out if scarring is a big issue and the severity of the sag is not as great.
Depending on the kinds of clothes and undergarments you prefer, one particular kind of incision may be right for you. Most of the no scar breast lift techniques attempt to hide the scars in the lower portion of the breast, allowing women to wear low-cut tops without embarrassing scars.
