What is breast lift
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy in medical terms, is a surgery that aims to change the shape of the breast. During the breast lift surgery, the plastic surgeon removes the excess skin on the breast and reshape the breast tissue to lift the breast.

Who needs breast lift
If you have sagging breasts or downward-pointing nipples, you can consider going for breast lift surgery. While most women associate having sagging breasts as embarrassing, going for breast lift surgery can help to boost self-image and confidence.
Is breast lift safe
Like any other surgery, breast lift surgery comes with its risks. Some of the risks associated with breast lift surgery specifically include:
Unfortunately, the scarring after breast lift surgery is permanent. However, while the scars leave a permanent mark on the breasts, they will gradually fade within one to two years. The scars from breast lift surgery can be hidden or covered mainly by wearing bras or bathing suits.
Partial or complete loss of the nipples or areolae
The partial or complete loss of the nipples or areolae is a rare occurrence in breast lift surgery. This rare condition happens when the blood supply to the nipple or the areola is interrupted during breast lift surgery, which causes damage to the breast tissue in that area resulting in partial or complete loss of the nipples or areolae.
Changes in nipple or breast sensation
After breast lift surgery, some patients may experience slight changes in their nipple or breast sensation. For most patients, it takes several weeks for the sensation to return. For others, the loss of sensation can be permanent. However, erotic sensation isn’t affected in most cases.
Asymmetry or irregularities in breast shape and size
During the healing process, patients may notice asymmetry or irregularities in the breast shape and size. This can also happen when the breast lift surgery have not successfully corrected the pre-existing asymmetry.
Having difficulty when breast feeding
For patients who have given birth and intend to breast feed, it is still possible to breast feed after the breast lift surgery. However, some patients may have difficulty producing enough milk after the breast lift surgery.
Other than the risks mentioned above, other risks are involved, such as infection, bleeding, or severe reaction to anaesthesia. Some patients may also experience an allergic reaction to surgical tapes and other materials during breast lift surgery.
What to do before breast lift
Before undergoing breast lift surgery, there are a few things you will need to follow:
It is highly advised to stop smoking before breast lift surgery. This is because smoking reduces the blood flow in the body and can slow the healing process after the surgery.
Avoid certain medications
If you are taking medications such as herbal supplements, aspirin or anti-inflammatory medicine, stop taking them as these medications can increase bleeding.
Go for a mammogram
Your surgeon is likely to recommend you to go for a mammogram before breast lift surgery and post-surgery. The mammogram will help the doctor examine the changes in your breast tissues and identify abnormalities as soon as possible.
What to expect from breast lift
Breast lift surgery can be done either at a hospital or a plastic surgery private clinic. Most patients will be put under general anaesthesia, which means you will be unconscious during breast lift surgery.
During the procedure
The surgeon may make incisions around the areolae, along the breast creases or the area extending downwards from the areolae to the breast creases. The surgeon may also put stitches deep within the breasts to reshape your breast tissue and reduce the areolae size. Your excess breast skin will be removed, and the nipples will be shifted to higher positions. The breast skin then will be put together and close the incisions with surgical tape or stitches.
After the procedure
The breast lift surgery typically lasts two to three hours, and you are discharged on the same day. After the breast lift surgery, you will most likely get gauze and a surgical support bra for your breasts. Small tubes may be placed at the incisions areas in your breasts to drain excess fluid or blood.
The breasts are likely to be bruised and swollen for about two weeks, and patients are likely to experience pain and soreness around the incisions. You may also experience numbness in breast skin, nipples, and areolae for about six weeks.
For the first few days after breast lift surgery, avoid bending, lifting, and straining. You are advised to sleep on your side or back to keep the pressure off your breasts.
Ask your doctor about when can your stitches be removed. Note that some stitches dissolve on their own while others need to be removed by a doctor, usually one to two weeks after the surgery.
It is recommended to wear the surgical support bra for at least three days after the surgery. Then switch to a soft support bra for at least three weeks. You might also use silicone tape on your incisions to help with the healing process.
Is breast lift permanent
You will be able to see visible results right after breast lift surgery, but it can take a few months for your breasts to settle into their final result. The breast lift results are not permanent as they can be affected by numerous factors such as weight gain and the size of the breasts. You can consider going for a repeat breast lift surgery that serves as a touch-up.
Conclusion: is breast lift surgery worth the money
Whether going for a breast lift surgery is worth the money is subjective. It is important to consider whether breast lift surgery is affordable for you and consider other non-surgical alternatives. Before going for breast lift surgery or any surgery, it is important to educate yourself about the risks involved and make sure you are okay with it before going for it.
