WHAT IS A BREAST LIFT SURGERY?
Breast Lift Surgery is an entirely safe and simple cosmetic surgery. It aims to remove sagging or excess skin and reshape the breasts to make them appear tighter and lifted. The surgery can also be made to resize the nipple and areola or lift the nipples by tightening the breast tissue. The Plastic Surgery field for Breast Lift has developed and included many methods doctors and plastic surgeons use to conduct the operation. The doctor determines the best way according to the patient’s condition and the type of skin tissue they have.
A Breast Lift surgery can be combined with other breast surgeries, such as Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction, to change the breast size while lifting it. The surgeon will recommend how to conduct the surgical procedure according to the patient’s condition. Although most people believe that breast surgeries cause or increase the chance of breast cancer, keep in mind that it is nothing more than a myth. Breast cancer occurs due to abnormalities that start in the breast tissues.
CANDIDATES FOR BREAST LIFT OPERATION
Many women desire to get a lifted breast, but the candidates for Breast Lift operation should meet some conditions. These conditions are as follows:
Women with sagging breasts or breast creases in the breast area. Women who had a significant weight loss, which resulted in breasts being sagged. Women suffer from nipples falling below the breast level. Women who had changes in breast shape due to frequent pregnancy, lactation, and changes in hormones. Women who face cases of areola expansion (the areola is the dark halo on the breast skin surrounding the nipples).
With aging, breasts become saggier, and their shape change entirely, so a Breast Lift Surgery can be conducted.
PRE- BREAST LIFT OPERATION TIPS
Following the instructions dictated by the doctor before the Breast Lift Operation is one of the most critical factors that lead to a successful operation. Such instructions are as follows:
Refrain from applying moisturizing creams for at least two days before the Breast Lift Operation. Refrain from having stimulants of all sorts, such as caffeine or Arabic coffee, for at least two weeks before the Breast Lift Operation since they affect the anesthesia process and make it difficult to anesthetize the patient who drinks stimulants frequently. Refrain from smoking entirely for a month before Breast Lift Operation since it narrows the veins and reduces the rate of oxygen in the blood. Refrain from using any type of blood thinners, such as alcohol and vitamin groups (because they contain vitamin E), for at least two weeks before the surgery to avoid bleeding during the surgery. Stop having any medications that cause blood thinning, such as Aspirin. Ensure a healthy and balanced diet for at least two weeks before the Breast Lift Operation.
POST-BREAST LIFT OPERATION TIPS
Remember that after the operation, you should have a companion who will drive you home.
There are some instructions that you must adhere to after the operation in order to reach the best results. These instructions are as follows:
Adhere to wearing a supportive surgical bra for six weeks after the Breast Lift Operation, especially after removing the bandages, for it helps speed up the healing process. Refrain from itching or pressing on the breast area for a month after the operation. Refrain from any stressful physical exertion or exercise, and it is recommended to adhere to complete rest for at least two months. Refrain from carrying heavy objects for four to six weeks after the operation. Ensure having a relatively stable weight and eating healthy and proper food by following some of the diets dictated by the doctor. Refrain from exposure to harmful sunlight for a month after the surgery. Keep away from high temperatures for at least six weeks, and avoid a Turkish bath or sauna.
STAGES OF BREAST LIFT OPERATION
Breast Lift Operation is conducted through a few stages, which can be listed as follows:
First Stage: Conducting Clinical Examination
The doctor examines the patient’s breasts and determines the final shape desired from the Breast Lift Operation.
Second Stage: Conducting the Necessary Tests
Mammography is performed along with the necessary blood tests. These tests identify the blood sugar rates and ensure that the woman is free of diseases that hinder Breast Lift Operation.
Third Stage: Preparing the Patient: The medical staff prepares the patient. The doctor layouts the breast and determines the proper place where the nipple is going to be. The anesthesiologist then anesthetizes the patient with general anesthesia to prevent them from feeling pain.
Fourth Stage: The Surgery: The plastic surgeon conducts the surgery; reshapes and lifts the nipples and breasts.
Everything is to assure you that you are in safe hands…
