The full and perky breasts of your youth are subject to natural changes including aging, pregnancy, nursing, and gravity which can weaken the breast tissue and skin and cause the breasts to droop. Breasts loose projection and assume an unattractive shape and position, with breast tissue and nipples descending below the inframammary crease. These natural changes can leave you feeling less confident and self-conscious of your breast appearance. Breast lift surgery is a procedure that repositions and reshapes the breasts to regain a more attractive and youthful appearance.
Breast Lift or Mastopexy is a surgical procedure specifically tailored to the patient’s needs and desires and aiming at restoring more youthful, fuller and more beautiful breasts. It may range from just removal of excess skin, to reshaping the breast tissue, to adding an implant for added volume and projection (mastopexy-augmentation).
Prior to the surgery you will have a consultation with Dr. Grubnik. During this consultation, it is important for you to answer one important question:
Are you happy with the size of your breasts?
This determines the type of procedure you need. If you are happy with the size of your breasts and would like them to look more youthful, then only removal of skin and reshaping of breast tissue is required. If, on the contrary, you would like your breasts to be bigger, then an implant should be placed and the breast tissue reshaped.
The surgery is performed in theatre under general anaesthetic and takes approximately two hours. The type of procedure performed is specifically tailored to your aesthetic desires and will be discussed with you during the pre-operative consultation.
