Breast Lift – Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction
If you are wanting a mild to moderate lift without extensive scaring from a traditional surgical breast lift then the Vaser Lipo Breast Reduction and Lift might be for you. Recently, performing breast lifts with Vaser skin tightening has become a very popular and effective procedure. Many patients are wanting firmer, perkier breasts but are afraid of big ugly scaring and long downtimes. This procedure works well with tight and thick skin, if you have thinner skin a surgical breast lift will be a better option.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and light sedation. This promotes improved quality and therefore a mild to moderate lift in the breasts without big ugly scars.
Patients can return to work and most regular activities within 2-3 days in most cases. Results will take full effect after 3-6 months in most cases.
Breast Lift – Mastopexy
After having children, losing weight or simply ageing, many women find that their breasts can lose their firmness, and look deflated. Breast Lift surgery can reverse these effects and create a perkier breast.
You should consider whether you have finished having children before a breast lift, as your breasts may droop again, if pregnancy was the cause of the original drooping/deflation.
How does a Surgical Breast Lift work?
Breast lift, also known as Breast Ptosis Correction or Mastopexy, takes approximately two hours. It is performed under general anaesthesia or deep sedation depending on the extent of the procedure .
Excess skin will be cut away from above, below and around the nipple and areola. The skin will be stretched taut when re-joined. The pattern followed by the surgeon is that which will cause the breast to be lifted and allow repositioning of the nipple, to give a more youthful appearance. Loss of nipple sensation, although common in Breast Reduction is not expected, nor is breast-feeding prevented. Often a lift is combined with a Breast Reduction surgery or a Breast Enlargement surgery, to give the best results.
