drawing surgical breast lift


There are a lot of available surgical techniques based on the degree of ptosis, the areola, nipple position, breast volume, and the volume of excessive skin.

During breast lift surgery, the surgeon makes an incision which is usually in a keyhole pattern ¦ a circle around the areola and two incisions down the breast which will be closed to make one line. The surgeon after that re-positions the nipple and areola to a higher placement and eliminates excessive skin from beneath the breast.

Closing the rest of the skin lifts the breast mound to a higher placement and reshapes the breast. No breast tissue is removed, which means you will remain the same size, although your breasts will look bigger as the skin is tightened.

Some patients, especially those, who have small breasts and minimal sagging may be candidates for modified procedures requiring less extensive incisions.

For example, one such procedure is the "doughnut (or concentric) breast lift," in which circular incisions are made around the areola, and a doughnut-shaped area of skin is removed. If patients having an implant inserted along with their breast lift, the surgeon will be placed in a pocket directly under the breast tissue or deeper under the muscle of the chest wall.

In case you (the patient) choose, a breast implant can be positioned at the same time (see breast augmentation). Sutures close the incisions.

After surgery, patient will be wrapped in elastic bandage or a gauze dressings or surgical bra. A small tube may be placed in each breast to drain blood and fluids for the first night. The extent of the post-operative swelling and bruising is depending on whether you tend to bruise or swell easily. The amount patient can expect vary for each individual but past surgeries should be a good indication.

For the first time in cosmetic surgery with breast lift, there be some soreness and discomfort which is easily controlled by medication.

Swelling and skin discoloration around the incisions generally will subside in a few days.  There may be a temporary loss of sensation in the nipples and breast skin.  These condition will improve in times.  Sutures will be removed on day seven to day ten of surgery date.

Scars remain highly visible for a year following surgery, then fade to some degree.  Since incisions were made around and below the nipples, scars should not be noticeable even in low-cut clothing.

Since no two breasts are the same size and shape before surgery, usually a slight variation will exist after surgery.
