There are several types of mammoplasty, which are performed in the ADONIS hospitals group depending on the goals and desired results.
Indications for Breast lift mammoplasty:
- Congenitally small breast size (micromastia)
- Breast hypertrophy
- Underdevelopment of mammary glands
- Breast asymmetry
- Ptosis of mammary glands
- Loss of shape and tone of the breast after the childbirth
- Mastectomy (previous removal of mammary glands)
A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:
- Weight fluctuations
Mastopexy is a part of the overall correction of the shape of the breast.
During mastopexy, an incision is made on the mammary gland, then a skin flap is excised. Breast tissues are moved according to indications, the nipple-area complex is transferred to the desired place, and the size of the areola itself is reduced.
A breast lift won’t significantly change the size of your breasts. However, a breast lift can be done in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction.
After mammology surgery
After the procedure, patients are advised on wound care, medication, suture removal and follow-up. Usually patients have to stay one night at the clinic. They can go back to their home country in 5-7 days after the surgery.
Soreness and swelling are likely for a few weeks after surgery. Bruising is possible, too. Physical activity will be limited for several weeks after the operation. Avoid strenuous activities – anything that could raise your pulse or blood pressure – for at least 2 weeks. Scars will remain firm and pink for about 6 weeks and then begin to fade over several months. You can return to your usual rhythm of life in 10-14 days, still you have to avoid physical activity for up 2 months.
While you’re healing, you also have to wear a compression bandage or sports bra for extra support and positioning of breast implants. Wearing the compression garments and compliance with the doctor’s recommendations will make the rehabilitation period less painful.
Mammoplasty can change the size and shape of your breasts as well as improve your body image and self-esteem.
There is no specific formula used to achieve natural-looking breast correction results as every woman is different. Instead, doctors of ADONIS Beauty clinic will evaluate a variety of factors including your body type, the amount of natural breast tissue present and your desired final breast size in order to develop the right treatment plan for your unique situation.
