Breast Lift / Reduction

Breast lift or Mastopexy
The breast lift operation is done to raises and recontour the loose and sagging breasts. A woman may need this surgery after losing a considerable amount of weight, or losing volume and tone in her breasts after having children.

This surgery is done under general anaesthesia.The surgeon relocates the nipple and areola (the pigment skin surrounding the nipple) to a higher position, repositions the breast tissue to a higher level, repositions the breast tissue to a higher level, removes excess skin from the lower portion of the breast and then reshapes the remaining breast skin. If you have your breasts enlarged as well as lifted, an implant may be placed behind your breast tissue or chest muscle.

After the surgery, gauze dressing and a surgical bra may be given.i. A supportive bra is usually recommended for several weeks following the surgery. Swelling and dis coloration may occur around the incisions and subside gradually. You may experience decreased sensation, which is usually temporary, in your nipples or breast skin. Mastopexy scars are permanent but will fade to some extent over time.The position of these scars is usually discussed with the patient pre operatively.

Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery,also known as reduction mammaplasty, removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body .It does help in reducing the discomfort usually associated with very large breasts.

The surgery is quite similar to the breast lift surgery and is done under general anaesthesia.The surgeons makes incisions and excess breast and fatty tissue is removed. In few patients the breast may need to be lifted at the same time and the position of the areola and nipple improved. This is generally needed when the breasts are sagging because of age or excessive weight loss. Liposuction may sometimes be used to improve the shape of the breasts.

After the surgery,dressing and support bra may be given.Breast reduction scars are permanent and there may be problems with breast feeding.

Both these surgeries are routinely done at Image medical centre by Dr Anup Dhir
