Breast lift UK (mastopexy) is a plastic surgery aimed at improving the shape and height of the mammary glands. The main problem, the elimination of which is aimed breast lift UK, is the lowering of the mammary glands. This can happen for a variety of reasons:
- Age and hormonal changes in the body
- Rapid weight loss
- Pregnancy and lactation
- The action of gravity
Unfortunately, the natural supporting structure of the breast, violated by the above circumstances, cannot be restored. However, thanks to the breast lift UK, the new form is given to the mammary glands and they can look as young and resilient as before.
The processes of breast lift UK procedure
Mastopexy or breast lift UK is performed under general anesthesia. With a small amount of intervention, it is possible to use local anesthesia. The time of the operation is about 1.5-2 hours. The surgeon removes the stretched part of the skin and forms the correct shape of the breast by moving the nipple and areola to a new position. In general, the breast lift UK technique is similar to reduction mammoplasty. However, unlike the last one, the breast tissue is not removed when lifted, but redistributed – sometimes it even gives a visual effect of increasing the breast size.
The period of rehabilitation after a breast lift UK takes about a week. You will be required to still in a hospital for 1-2 days (in case of general anesthesia), then for a few days, it is desirable to reduce any activity to a minimum. Sutures are removed after 10-14 days. For 2-3 weeks after the operation, it is mandatory to wear compression linen. In addition, in the next 1-2 months, you should lift weights and play sports in no case. During the rehabilitation period, pain and swelling are possible, which will gradually come to naught. A small percentage of patients also have a permanent decrease or vice versa – an increase in the sensitivity of the nipples. The final result can be assessed no earlier than 3-4 months after mastopexy.
