Weight changes and pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause breasts to sag.
The aim of the operation is to provide fullness and roundness. Your doctor will choose the appropriate option from a range of available techniques.
If breast tissue is seen as inadequate, silicone prosthesis can be used.
There is usually no loss of sensation after the operations. You can still breastfeed after a breast lift.
The operation takes about 2 hours under general anaesthesia and you are up and about walking within 24 hours.
You should wear a special bra for two weeks to protect the new uplifted breasts.
