A breast lift is one of the most common aesthetic procedures for women. Sometimes breast lifts are combined with breast augmentation surgery.
The reasons for doing a breast lift will vary, but the most common is that the woman is experiencing her breasts as being saggy and disproportionate to the rest of her body.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding the breasts are often reduced in size, and lose their shape. A hanging and sagging bust can also be hereditary or arise after more or less significant weight loss.
The operation is performed under general anesthesia, which means you are asleep and pain-free during the entire procedure. If it’s a small lift-procedure, you can go home later that day. However, if it’s a bigger lift or if the breast lift is combined with a breast augmentation you will have to stay for one night after surgery.
The first few days you will feel a tightness and “a pull” in the wounds, but you will not hurt much more than can be handled by mild painkillers. We provide all the medication you need.
Normally you visit the clinic after a week to check on the wounds and after three weeks for removal of stitches.
The surgical technique and hence the location of the scars varies and depends on how much the nipple must be moved up and on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. At the so-called crescent lift some skin is removed above the nipple and areola which leaves crescent-shaped scar in the upper, outer edge of the areola. Sometimes you need to remove more skin around the areola and the scar will then move to the outer edge of the entire areola. If your breasts are saggy and if the nipples are hanging down a lot, even more skin needs to be removed. In these cases, you get a scar around the areola, a vertical scar straight from the areola down to the mammary fold and a short horizontal scar along the mammary fold. The scar is hereby shaped like an anchor, and is also called “anchor scar”.
The scars usually heal very nicely and become small thin, white lines over time.
