|Breast correction||Breast correction|
Many women notice that their breasts have lost their firmness and shape after pregnancy. The higher the number of pregnancies, the more noticeable the changes in the elasticity and shape of the breasts. Naturally large breasts may also lose their firmness in time.
Breast lifting is surgery that corrects the shape and elasticity of breasts without any considerable changes to their size. The effect of the surgery resembles that of a well fitting bra, only the result is achieved with your own breast tissue, which will be remodelled as necessary and the nipple lifted to a suitable height.
Breast lifting may be combined with breast enlargement with implants if requested by the patient and if required to achieve a better shape.
Since the surgery does not damage the milk ducts, it will not prevent you breastfeeding in the future.
No proof has been found of a link between breast lifting and the threat of breast cancer.
This surgery is performed under GENERAL ANAESTHETIC. We will check the sensitivity of the patient before choosing a method of anaesthesia. The most suitable method will be determined by the physician-anaesthesiologist in our clinic during your pre-surgery interview.
The following is required before general anaesthetic: ECG, venous blood and urine test results that must be submitted to the anaesthesiologist.
If necessary, the tests will be organised by our clinic.
You will have to wear bandages for about 2 weeks after your post-surgery check-up. It is extremely important that you wear a special support bra for 3-4 months after surgery.
Even the most skilful surgeon cannot guarantee that there will be no complications.
