Due to loss of breast tissue (after pregnancy, weight loss, menopause) and loss of skin elasticity, the breasts can begin to hang over time.
With a breast lift, the breast tissue is placed back to a higher position (lifted), sometimes in combination with the placement of a prosthesis, resulting in a younger and more aesthetic breast.
This procedure is done under general anaesthesia, takes two hours to perform and in some cases can be performed in day clinic, though a night hospital stay is sometimes required.
During your consultation you will discuss with your surgeon about the necessary incisions in order to achieve an optimal result. He will also discuss with you the possible discomforts and complications.
