Aging, pregnancies, and weight loss can cause the breasts to lose their volume and shape. This can have an impact on a woman’s self-confidence and self-esteem. A mastopexy or the so-called Breast Lift is a surgical procedure to restore the youthful look of the breasts by removing loose skin, reshaping the breast tissue from the inside, and lifting the nipple into a more aesthetically pleasing position. A breast lift or mastopexy does not involve increasing the cup size of your breasts.
If you feel that you have lost volume or your breasts have significantly dropped with the nipple sitting below the breast crease or pointing downward.
Then it is more than likely that you would benefit from a breast lift or mastopexy. Usually, if you are presenting one of the symptoms below, then you may wish to contact Dr. Mounir for a face-to-face consultation to confirm if Mastopexy is appropriate for you.
During your first consultation, Dr. Mounir will start by listening to your objectives and expectations. He will go through your past medical history and even ask you to contact a GP to get supportive information from them to confirm your health status and medications.
He will want to know whether you have any previous surgical scars, especially on your breasts. Next, Dr. Mounir, Manchester cosmetic breast surgeon, will examine and measure your breasts and inform you about the degree of ptosis of your breasts. He will assess the quality of your skin. At the end of your initial consultation, Dr. Mounir will share with you his surgical opinion and tell you if you are a good candidate for a breast lift and whether you need any additional surgery to achieve a good result and meet your expectations. Dr. Mounir will invite you to take as long as you want before your final decision and come back to see him for a second consultation once you have decided to proceed.
During your second consultation with Dr. Mounir at the Manchester Cosmetic Centre will discuss with you the plan for your Breast Cosmetic Lift surgery. He will inform you about the length of your surgery, the position of your incisions, and how long you need off work.
You will have a pre-operative assessment either with the nurse or Dr. Mounir himself. Based on your medical history, Dr. Mounir may advise you to discontinue certain medications prior to surgery, but this is rare. If you are a smoker, you will absolutely need to stop smoking at least six weeks before and after and after your mastopexy surgery. If you are over 50 years old, Dr. Mounir may ask you to have a mammogram.
Dr. Mounir usually performs Breast Lift surgery under General Anesthesia. You will be under the care of an experienced NHS consultant anesthetist. Depending on the complexity, the surgery takes about 90 to 120 minutes to perform. You should stop eating and drinking the night before if your admitting time is early in the morning. Dr. Mounir will come and see you in your hospital’s room right before your surgery. This will be another opportunity to ask him any questions before signing your consent form.
During your initial and second consultations, Dr. Mounir will discuss with you the appropriate surgical technique he has selected for you depending on your excess skin and the degree of lifting that your breast requires, but also upon the quality of your tissues. The selected technique will have a direct impact on the number of scars you are going to have.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Mounir will provide you with post-operative instructions that you should follow carefully after your surgery. You will be instructed to wear a sports bra for at least six weeks. You will be given painkillers and antibiotics for one week. You need at least two weeks off work postoperatively.
