Breast lift surgery and it types

Breast lift or mastopexy as it is called is becoming a widely used surgical procedure among the female world population, especially in developed countries. It is done to literally ‘lift’ the sagging breasts, scientifically known as ‘breast ptosis’. The hormonal changes that are frequently observed among women, mostly middle aged, due to past pregnancies. Changes in lactation and breastfeeding after child birth are most often the reason behind sagging breasts. Lifting the breasts depends upon the degree to which the female’s breasts have lost their stiffness. Obviously that is decided by the surgeon. The doctor will suggest how far lifting is necessary and especially, if you are planning to conceive again after the surgery.

The plastic surgeon doctor may sometimes suggest a full breast lift. A full breast lift requires a number of incisions to give your breasts a firm appearance. The doctor will use different techniques such as Anchor mastopexy if you are suggested a full breast lift. This gives a natural, fuller and voluminous look to your breasts. A full breast lift is basically a fully fledged surgical procedure to give your breasts more firmness and also uplift them. This involves maximum number of incisions to regain your bust size. Another procedure is a modified breast lift. It does not involve numerous incisions unlike a full lift. They are a form of correction surgery done to lower the breast ptosis. Your doctor may suggest this type of surgery if your breasts are less saggy or there are some corrections that need to be made after the full lift.

Breast augmentation users can also go for breast lifting at times. But lifting on augmented breasts can lead to increased number of risks for women. Overtime, there may be a loss of sensation around nipples. Also, there is a risk of damage to breast tissues and displacement of the implant itself. However, introduction of the newer technique Simultaneous Augmentation Mastopexy has considerably reduced the risks. It has been approved clinically safe with lesser complications.
