About Breast Lift 

Breast Lift 

A breast lift, known medically as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to reshape and elevate the breasts and nipples, resulting in a more youthful and firmer aesthetic. This procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals content with their breast size but seeking to enhance firmness and contour. Mastopexy addresses sagging or drooping breasts often attributed to factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Genetic predisposition can also contribute to breast ptosis, leading to a loss of firmness and shape, with nipples pointing downward or positioned below the natural crease where the breasts meet the ribcage.

  • The primary benefit of breast lift surgery lies in its ability to enhance the shape, contours, and texture of the breasts. This surgical procedure can rejuvenate the breasts, providing a more uplifted appearance, improved firmness, and a youthful aesthetic. Consequently, patients often experience a boost in self-confidence, a heightened sense of body positivity, and a better fit in clothing without the necessity of full support bras.

  • Surprisingly, breast lift surgery can also have positive implications for physical health. By alleviating weight from the chest, this procedure can reduce neck and back pain. Moreover, any preexisting skin irritations beneath the breasts are commonly alleviated following the surgery.

  • Restoring the attractive shape of the breasts through this procedure contributes significantly to enhancing the patient's self-esteem.

  • What is Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
    Gastric sleeve surgery is a surgical procedure that reduces your stomach size. By limiting the amount, a person could eat, it is perfect for people who are extremely overweight and neither diet or training is not effective. A person should be extremely careful when deciding to take this procedure as it is irreversible and will greatly affect their lifestyle.
  • How does it work?
    The surgery removes a part of the stomach, reducing its size by 75% thus leaving the left side in a long sleeve shape. While three-quarters of the stomach is removed it retains all its previous functions resulting in a smaller efficient stomach that limits your food intake because of its size. Furthermore, the stomach produces hormones such as gastrin and ghrelin which are associated with the feeling of hunger, so removing a part of the stomach would decrease the level of these hormones as well as your appetite. The rest of the pouch is closed using medical staples and manual stitching to prevent any legates from occurring (doctors could perform a fluid test while operating to validate). During this period of time the patient will be under the effect of general aesthetics and the operation could last between 1-2 hours.

    After your stay at the hospital (normally 2 days) it is normal to feel tired the first few days. When a week has passed, you may return to work, though it is recommended to rest 2-3 weeks until your body stabilises. Everyday activities should be comfortable to perform within 4-6 weeks but from 3-6 months some symptoms might develop for this short period of time such as mood changes, tiredness, thinning hair or dry skin (due to the excessive weight loss).
