With increasing age, a woman's breas-ts often change over time, as they lose their fat, firmness, and shape. A breas-t lift, or mastopexy, helps to rejuvenate the figure with a defined breas-t profile that is more uplifted and youthful, by removing the excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue of the breas-t.
The loss of skin elasticity and change in the breas-t profile occurs due to various factors such as aging, gravity, genetics, disease, weight fluctuations, hormonal fluctuations, breas-tfeeding, and pregnancy. These factors cause the breas-ts to sag and areola to enlarge and point downwards.
With a minimally invasive procedure of breas-t lift, one can achieve the most considerable degree of lift and restore shapelier breas-ts and achieve a perky and youthful appearance. This surgery can be done before or after childbearing. However, pregnancy and breas-tfeeding can reverse the benefits and improvements provided by breas-t lift surgery. If someone is planning to have children or would like to lose weight, it is advised to achieve these milestones, before having breas-t lift surgery in Delhi.

Benefits of breas-t lift surgery
Procedure time: 3-4 hours (depending upon the extent of the surgery).
General anesthesia is administered and the patient is completely asleep. The procedure can also be performed under intravenous sedation and local anesthesia.
Step 1. The surgeon will draw incision guidelines on the breas-t. The size of the areola can also be reduced, and the incision guidelines will show this change.
Step 2. The local or general anesthesia is administered to provide comfort during the surgical procedure.
Step 3. The breas-t lift surgery in India can be performed by a variety of incision patterns and techniques. The appropriate technique, suitable for the patient depends upon the degree of breas-t sagging, breas-t shape and size, position and size of areolas, and skin quality and elasticity. The incision can be made around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the crease of the breas-t (lollipop incision), or around the areola, both vertically down or horizontally around the breas-t crease (anchor incision mastopexy) Further, depending upon the incision technique, the incisions are made along the pre-marked lines and using a variety of instruments, the surgeon rearranges the breas-t parenchyma.
Step 4. The excess skin is removed, breas-t tissue is lifted and reshaped, and the remaining skin is tightened to improve breas-t contour and firmness. The areolas and nipples are repositioned, to a youthful height.
Step 5. Large areolas are reduced in size (perimeter) and are repositioned in the forward-facing position.
Step 6. Incisions are closed by using dissolvable sutures, and surgical drains may need to be placed inside each breas-t. Some incision lines are concealed in the natural breas-t contour, and some may be visible on the surface of the breas-t. These incisions will fade and significantly improve over time.
Step 7. Dressings are applied to protect the incision site.
Step 8. The compression garment is to be worn to reduce swelling and fluid buildup. The surgeon will provide pain medication to help the patient feel comfortable after the surgery.
The surgical drains if placed, are removed in a day or two of the surgery and stitches dissolve after 4-5 weeks.
