If you are unhappy with the shape and lack of volume of your breasts, a breast lift may be for you. Due to the ageing process, pregnancy, breastfeeding and even gravity, it is common to experience breast sagging. Although your breasts may have once appeared full and perky, they can be left sitting at a much lower level than they previously were. With Medbelle, you can restore a youthful and uplifted appearance with a breast lift here in Swansea.

Your Breast Lift in Swansea

If you are considering undergoing a breast lift procedure, then you might be wondering what can be achieved as well as what’s involved.
Drooping or sagging breasts happens for a number of reasons including age, genetics, gravity, pregnancy and breastfeeding. If your nipple currently sits lower than the breast crease pointing downwards, it is likely that you will benefit from a breast uplift. The physical cause of breasts which hang lower is caused by stretching of the skin and ligaments of the breast, which causes less support given to the breast tissue. This allows the breasts to sit much lower on the chest.
Breast lift surgery looks to reverse this, by removing a portion of skin on the breasts and repositioning the nipple so that the breasts sit at a much higher level, giving a youthful and perky appearance. Your surgeon can also address any asymmetry of your breasts during your operation.
It is also possible for your surgeon to perform a breast enlargement at the same time. This will be discussed with you prior to surgery and depends on your specific goals.

Generally speaking, a breast uplift without implants will give a more natural appearance to your breasts. However, if you have lost volume in your breasts in addition to sagging, then having a breast uplift in addition to a breast enlargement can solve both issues at once.
Lifting the breasts closer to their original position can make clothes more comfortable as well as boosting self-esteem. It can also help the breasts appear much more similar to how they did prior to breastfeeding, restoring confidence and giving a result that can last for many years.

    expand_more

    This will depend on how physically demanding your job is, but typically 1-2 weeks.

  • What if I gain or lose a lot of weight after breast lift surgery?

    expand_more

    Although it varies from patient to patient, if you gain or lose a lot of weight following a breast lift this could affect the results of your surgery. It’s advisable to get to and maintain your optimum weight before surgery.

  • Will I still be able to breastfeed after having a breast lift?

    expand_more

    Typically, women look to have a breast lift after they have completed breastfeeding. Although most women find they are able to breastfeed after having the procedure, due to the operation requiring an incision to be made around the nipple, some of the milk ducts, glands or nerves may become damaged. However, if you were able to breastfeed prior to surgery, there is a good chance you will be able to afterwards.

    If you plan on breastfeeding after surgery, you must discuss this with your surgeon during the consultation phase. This is so the most appropriate incision technique can be used by your surgeon.

    If you are currently breastfeeding, your surgeon may ask you to stop up to 6 months in advance prior to your surgery.
