Having kids is among the happiest moments of life for a woman, but apart from all the happiness and joy, your body pays the toll especially your breasts as a result of breastfeeding. Your breasts can become saggy after having kids, or after you lose a considerable amount of weight.
Luckily there is a tried and tested way to reduce sagging and uplift the breasts making them more youthful. Another reason for saggy breasts is aging and bigger breast size as well. Breast lift surgery in India is becoming very popular and women from all sectors of life are choosing it. The level of sagginess depends on the following factors:
- Gravity is a very important factor for women with overly sized breasts
- Genetics, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle play a crucial role
- Aging changes the breast’s shape and causes them to sag
- Pregnancy and lactation
- Drastic weight gain or loss
For breast lift surgery in Mumbai, Dr. Siddharth Prakash is one of the best plastic surgeons in Mumbai at Lilavati Hospital. He is KEM Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston alumnus.
This surgery is done for the correction of sagging or droopy breasts, making them look perkier and fuller. The nipple position is lifted, and the volume of the breasts is increased specifically in the upper portion.
In your consultation with the plastic surgeon, he will discuss your goals and expectations from the surgery. The surgeon will also recommend certain imaging and blood tests and physical examination. Breast lift surgery is often accompanied by breast augmentation surgery.
The surgery varies from person to person and depends on the desired outcomes. Your surgeon will provide a detailed information pack about your surgery so you can read about everything in detail at home and decide accordingly. You can book another meeting with your doctor and clarify any confusion and decide the surgery date.
Mastopexy or Breast Lift Surgery
This surgery is performed under the effect of general anesthesia and is performed under outpatient sitting so you can return home the same day. This surgery is done by using rapid recovery incision techniques and you won’t have to stay at the hospital.
Mastopexy is done alone on patients who have saggy breasts with good volume for restoring the shape of the breasts. Mastopexy is combined with breast augmentation with fat when patients lose volume in the upper portion of their breasts.
The nipple and areolar region are repositioned, and overstretched saggy skin is removed for making the breasts look perky and youthful. Skin quality, overstretched skin, and nipple position decide the technique of the surgery.
Post-Surgery Recovery After Mastopexy
You will experience some bruising and swelling on your breasts after the surgery. Some patients also feel slight discomfort and mild pain for one week. You’ll need to take an off from your work for 1 or 2 weeks, and avoid any kind of strenuous activity like running or exercise for one month.
Also, you’ll have to regularly go for follow-up appointments after 2 days of the surgery, one week, 2 weeks, and 2 months gap for one year.
The swelling and bruising will settle after one and half months and your scars will fade away as well. The effect of surgery can be affected if you get pregnant afterward, gain weight, or experience any hormonal disorders.
