Breast lifting surgery
Procedure: during breast lifting surgery, sagging breasts are lifted by extracting the excess skin and shifting the existing tissue and nipples.
Duration of the surgery: 1 to 3 hours.
Anaesthesia: local with sedatives or general.
Treatment: 1 day in hospital.
Convalescence: 1 to 3 days after the breast lifting surgery there will be pain and discomfort in the breast region; return to work is possible after 1 week. Larger physical loads can be restarted after 1 month. Scars disappear after several months or later.
Results: variable. Gravity, pregnancy, ageing and weight changes can cause new breast sagging. Results will be preserved for longer or improve if breast implants are inserted concomitantly with the change of breast shape.
