What should you know about breast lift with implants :
Weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding or age can affect the shape of your breasts.
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, lifts and firms the breasts by removing loose skin and reshaping the surrounding tissues to support the shape of the breasts and achieve the desired result.
Often, the use of breast implants alone is not enough to lift the breasts, so a breast lift is also recommended to improve the position and shape.
Our surgeons will study your case and offer you the ideal treatment.
Breast lift is still a popular surgery given the changes it makes to the figure and the overall appearance of the woman as well as its psychological effects on patients who feel better in their bodies and more confident.
Am I a good candidate for the breast lift?
Good candidates for breast lift are women who have one or more of these problems :
- Breasts that have lost volume and shape
- Breasts that are flat or elongated
- The breasts whose areolas have been stretched
- Breasts that have nipples that point down and / or below the crease of the breasts
It must also be known that in order to undergo this operation, it is necessary to have a recent mammogram to check that your breasts are in good health.

Before your breast lift:
A blood test is necessary before your breast lift and this so that your surgeon can assess your health.
A basic mammogram or ultrasound before surgery is also needed to assess the condition of your breasts and they do not present any problems.
You should stop smoking for two to four weeks before your breast lift to accelerate healing, because smoking reduces circulation.
Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, and herbal supplements as they may increase bleeding.
Before your breast lift, your surgeon will carry out a careful and thorough consultation with you to assess your general physical health, the state of your breasts, the elasticity of your skin, discuss your aesthetic goals and answer any questions or concerns you may have about your surgery. This will help your surgeon develop an individual surgical plan.
The progress of a breast lift :
What breast lift with implants require
A breast lift requires incisions to lift and firm the breasts. The most commonly used incision patterns during a breast lift procedure are:
- The incision around the areola.
- The incision around the areola accompanied by another vertical line from the lower edge of the areola to the breast fold.
- The incisions around the areola then vertically from the lower edge of the areola to the fold of the chest and finally extending horizontally in the fold of the breast.
The size and shape of the breasts, the size of the areolas and the extent of sagging are factors that will help our surgeon determine the best technique to use.
In some cases, it may be advisable to add a breast implant to improve the shape and fill the breasts.
Repositioning the nipple
In some cases of breast lift, the nipple must be repositioned so as to be proportional to the newly formed breast. When excess skin is removed during surgery, some of the too-stretched areola is removed at the same time. The goal of this procedure is to reduce the size of the areola and create a uniform and natural appearance for the breasts.
With the majority of breast lift protocols, there are some scars associated with surgery. Incisions are needed to remove loose and excess skin, so scars are an inevitable part of the process.
During surgery, the latest breast lift techniques are used by our surgeons to minimize scars. A program for postoperative scar care will be provided.
After the surgery and convalescence period:
The wearing of underwired bra during the first month after surgery is to be banned, instead a special bra will be provided and you must wear during the period indicated by your surgeon.
Bruises, swelling and numbness (small loss of sensitivity) appear the first days after your breast lift, is completely normal, so you must rest completely during the first days.
In the 7-14 days after the operation:
You will be able to get up and walk around the house the day of the surgery, but stay calm for the first few days.
You can go back to work during the first week.
Swelling and hematoma will begin to disappear.
After some weeks :
The sutures begin to resorb.
You can resume daily activities (non-tiring).
Avoid lifting anything above the head for three to four weeks after your breast lift.
The numbness of the nipples and the skin begin to disappear.
How to keep the breast lift results as long as possible?
The facelift restores the breasts to their state and frome of your youth, but the natural changes and the slackening of the skin due to age do not stop.
But by following the appropriate care recommended by your surgeon, you should not return to your previous level of relaxation for many years.
However, it is important to understand that certain life events, such as pregnancy (after breast lift) or weight fluctuations can negatively affect your results. If you plan to have more children or want to lose weight, it is best to achieve these goals before having a breast lift.
