Breast uplift surgery is available in Liverpool through Anca Breahna, a leading cosmetic surgeon with a specialism in breast procedures.
The process of breast uplift can be suitable to alleviate a number of conditions and a number of causes for breasts needing uplift.
The procedure can boost appearance but also do so much to improve mental health and self-esteem. As a female surgeon, Anca Breahna is uniquely positioned to understand these sensitivities.
In this page we will outline key information about breast uplift and who this process is suitable for, as well as answering common questions.
We will also speak a little about Ms Breahna and why she stands apart from other surgeons in Liverpool.
Breast Uplift Suitability
Suitability for this operation can only be ascertained in a detailed consultation with a leading surgeon.
However, as a general rule it is often suitable for those who have drooping breasts, whether this has occurred over time or been a long-term concern, perhaps since puberty.
The best candidates are women who have breasts that have lost volume and are now sagging.
The causes for the sagging are varied, but typically include
- Weight loss
More importantly than the cause for most prospective patients is whether a breast uplift is suitable and the impact this could have.
It may also be that the apparent sagging is actually a similar condition such as tuberous breast, whereby the breasts can have an underdeveloped appearance with an overly prominent gap between them.
Suitability would be determined at a thorough consultation.
Consultation for a Breast Lift in Liverpool
As much as you can research and seek knowledge from web pages, a consultation remains the absolutely vital step.
The consultation is your chance to talk and express your hopes for surgery and the journey that has brought you to seek a procedure.
Your surgeon would listen and then suggest a plan of best action. Clearly their experience and level of skill is vital, as the more they have of each, the more options they have and the more certain you are to receive the very best care and have the best results.
That, though, is to jump ahead a stage. Any surgeon would only recommend an operation if it is truly in a patient’s best interests.
A second consultation is then usual, indeed this is a stage Anca Breahna deems of vital importance, allowing the patient time to consider at their leisure if surgery truly is for them.
The benefits of breast uplift are profound, but it is still a major procedure and so not to be entered into lightly.
The patient does not need to be an expert in the procedures or even be certain if they require a Mastopexy or treatment for congenital breast or tuberous breast.
Instead, they simply need to know that they have a concern over the appearance of their breasts, the surgeon can then recommend the best treatment.
Breast Uplift Procedure
The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic.
At the start, your surgeon would make an incision around the outside of the nipple and then another would be made running in a vertical line from under the nipple.
Following this, excess skin is removed and the breast tissue reshaped and nipple repositioned as required. Wounds are then closed and dressings applied.
Experience of the surgeon is important to factor in how the breasts will settle down as they heel as the final result will not be visible for around six months, this scarring fades and the breasts return to a more natural shape.
Recovery from Breast Uplift
At consultation, you would be provided with full details of aftercare.
There will be a need to take it easy for around two weeks and physical activity will be off limits for a period.
Your progress and recovery would be checked at regular intervals, Anca Breahna holds regular follow-ups throughout the first year and is also available at all times to answer any queries.
Mastopexy surgery is considered safe, but as with any operation there are some risks – these include swelling, tenderness and bruising. Infrequent complications would include infection, delayed wound healing and poor scarring.
Your surgeon would detail all risks in consultation and answer any questions or concerns.
Cost of a Mastopexy
For a breast lift in Liverpool, there is the cost of the surgeon, anaesthetist and the private hospital to factor in.
At the time of writing, prices start from around £5,800.
A full, detailed quote would be provided at consultation – this fully inclusive of all fees.
