Breast Lift (Step-by-Step)
At Cades Clinic, our highly trained and experienced surgeons carry out the Mastopexy (breast lift) procedure with precision and utmost care.
The process involves several well-coordinated steps:
The procedure begins with the administration of general anesthesia, ensuring the patient’s comfort by inducing unconsciousness for the duration of the surgery.
The surgeon then proceeds to make an incision on the breast. The pattern of this incision depends on factors such as the degree of breast sagging, size and position of the areolas, and the patient’s specific goals. Common patterns include periareolar (around the areola), vertical (around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease), or inverted T (around the areola, vertically down to the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease).
Repositioning of Breast Tissues
Once the incision is made, the surgeon removes the excess skin and reshapes the breast tissue, effectively lifting and firming the breast. The nipple and areola, which remain tethered to the underlying tissue for vital blood supply, are then repositioned to a more elevated, youthful position on the chest.
Closure of the Incision
After the reshaping and repositioning of breast tissues, the incision is meticulously closed using sutures or skin adhesives to minimize scarring. A surgical bra or elastic bandage might be placed over the breasts to support the new contour during the healing process.
Post-Operative Care and Recovery
Post-operation, patients are closely monitored in a recovery room for any potential complications. The recovery timeline can vary, but typically, patients are discharged within a few days. A gradual return to non-strenuous work is often possible after two weeks, provided the healing process is uneventful.
Continued Medical and Nutritional Support
One of the distinct advantages of opting for a procedure at Cades Clinic is our continued support post-surgery. We stay connected with our patients after they return home, providing crucial medical advice and personalized dietary plans curated by our on-board nutritionist. This comprehensive support aids in a healthier and smoother recovery, ensuring our patients’ wellbeing even beyond the confines of the clinic.
