BREAST LIFTING – Breast elevation
Breast lift surgery is performed in cases where the breast loses its firmness and sagging due to age, significant and sudden weight loss or gain, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The breast changes in three respects: in position, volume and size, fortunately these changes do not cause any health problems other than aesthetic ones.
The purpose of the Breast Lift surgery is neither to enlarge the breast nor to reduce it, but to lift the breast, giving it a regular shape. If one wishes to increase the volume of the chest in addition to freezing, of course this operation can be performed in combination with breast enlargement surgery, which consists of placing an implant or injecting fat.
During breast lift surgery it may also be necessary to reduce the halo, i.e. the dark pigmented area around the breast nipple.
The operation is performed under general anaesthesia and lasts about 2 and a half hours, at the end of which an I-shaped scar will remain, which with time fades and recovers the colour of the skin without disappearing completely.
At the end of the operation the staff will provide you with the appropriate surgical prescriptions to wear during your hospital stay, in the meantime you will be followed by the Himera Clinic specialists throughout your recovery.
