What Is Breast Lift?
Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery that raises and reshapes sagging breasts. It is an effective way to restore the youthful contour and position of the breasts.
The breast lift procedure involves removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to raise and support the breasts. Different techniques are used to perform a breast lift, including the anchor, lollipop, and donut incision techniques. The technique used will depend on the degree of sagging and the amount of excess skin to be removed.
The breast lift surgery can help improve the appearance of sagging breasts and restore a more youthful contour. It can also improve the symmetry of the breasts, reduce the size of the areola, and enhance overall breast shape and firmness.
Breast lift surgery is suitable for women who have sagging or drooping breasts due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, aging, or genetics.
After a breast lift procedure, patients may experience discomfort in the breasts and surrounding areas. Therefore, patients should avoid strenuous activities for several weeks and follow the post-operative instructions provided by The One Clinic’s surgeons to ensure thorough healing and recovery. Most patients can return to work within a week or two after surgery, but full recovery may take several months.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How is the breast lift procedure performed?
The breast lift procedure involves removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue to create a firmer, more lifted appearance. The incisions can be made around the areola, vertically from the areola to the breast crease, or in a horizontal line along the breast crease.
Will a breast lift change the size of my breasts?
A breast lift does not change the size of the breasts, but it can make them appear fuller and more youthful. If you are interested in changing the size of your breasts, you may want to consider a breast augmentation or reduction in addition to a lift.
How long will the results of a breast lift last?
The results of a breast lift can last for many years, but the effects of aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can eventually cause the breasts to sag again.
