What you need to know about Breast Lift in Thailand

Commonly known as a Mastopexy or mammoplasty, the breast lift differs from breast augmentation in that it helps to raise sagging breasts by modifying the size, contour and elevation. It is a surgical procedure, performed by a plastic surgeon in which excess tissues and fat are removed. Some patients may choose to have breast implants added as part of the procedure.

As you get older, your breasts change losing elasticity and firmness and as a result you might choose to have a breast lift if your breasts sag or your nipples point downward. A breast lift won't significantly change the size of your breasts. However, a breast lift can be performed in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction, this will be determined by your surgeon and will require a scan of the breasts.

Breast Lift, Before and After

You might consider a breast lift if:

  • Breasts sag — they've lost shape and volume, or they've gotten flatter and longer.
  • Nipples — when your breasts are unsupported — fall below your breast creases.
  • Nipples and Areolae point downward.
  • Areolae have stretched out of proportion to your breasts.
  • One of your breasts falls lower than the other.

While a breast lift can be done on breasts of any size, women with smaller sagging breasts will likely have longer lasting results. Larger breasts are heavier, which makes them more likely to sag again.

A breast lift can be done in a hospital or an outpatient surgical facility. Sometimes the procedure is done with sedation and local anesthesia, which numbs only part of your body. In other cases, general anesthesia which renders you unconscious, is recommended. Techniques used to remove breast skin and reshape breast tissue vary. The specific technique your plastic surgeon chooses will determine the location of the incisions and the resulting scars.


Additional factors to consider:

1. Recovery time and Risks: After a breast lift, your breasts will likely be covered with gauze and a surgical support bra. Small tubes might be placed at the incision sites in your breasts to drain any excess blood or fluid. Your breasts will be swollen and bruised for about two weeks. You'll likely feel pain and soreness around the incisions, which will be red or pink for a few months. Numbness in your nipples, areolae and breast skin might last for about six weeks.

In the first few days after a breast lift, take pain medication as recommended by your doctor. Avoid straining, bending and lifting. Sleep on your back or your side to keep pressure off your breasts. Avoid sexual activity for at least one to two weeks after the breast lift. Continue to wear the surgical support bra round-the-clock for three or four days. Then you'll wear a soft support bra for three or four weeks. Your doctor might suggest using silicone tape or gel on your incisions to promote healing.

Like any major surgery, a breast lift poses a risk of bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to anesthesia. It's also possible to have an allergic reaction to the surgical tape or other materials used during or after the procedure.


2. Success rate: You'll notice an immediate change in the appearance of your breasts although their shape will continue to change and settle over the next few months.

Initially, scars will appear red and lumpy. While scars are permanent, they'll soften and become thin and white within one to two years. Scars from a breast lift can usually be hidden by bras and bathing suits.

Breast lift results might not be permanent. As you age, your skin will naturally become less elastic, and some sagging might occur especially if you have larger, heavier breasts. Maintaining a stable, healthy weight can help you retain your results.

3. Patient reviews often highlight an improved self-image and self-confidence.
