Also known as a mastopexy, breast lift surgery changes the shape of a woman’s breasts. It involves removing excess skin and reshaping the breasts. Breast lift Manchester doesn’t involve significantly changing the size of the breasts. To change the size of breasts, a woman needs a breast augmentation or reduction.
The benefits of a breast lift
As women get older, their breasts can change. They lose elasticity and firmness. This can also happen because of pregnancy or weight loss. A breast lift can repair this damage to the skin. As a result, breasts are firmer. However, it can also make it more difficult to breastfeed. Therefore, women considering getting pregnant may want to wait.
Choosing a Breast Lift
Women thinking of a breast lift need to remember this is a major operation and, as such, comes with risks. This is why it’s important to make sure they use a surgeon registered with the General Medical Council and a member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. Ideally, they should also be a Specialist FRCS in Plastic Surgery.
A surgeon will take time getting to know their patient and understand their medical history. They will want to know if there is a history of breast cancer and to see the results of mammograms or biopsies. In addition, they will look at any medications the patient is taking, as these can affect recovery. After this, they will complete a physical examination, discussing options and expectations.
