Why So Many Mums Love Breast Lifts

No matter how hard you work and how well you eat, your body is going to change with time. Fat starts to build up and your breast begin to sag. It’s a total natural part of ageing that happens to even the most beautiful women in the world. This is especially true for mums.

When you have a child, everything changes.  Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and changes in your weight can cause your breasts to you sag and lose their youthful shape. Fortunately, there is something that you can do about it.

Breast lifts are a great procedure that can give mums their pre-baby bodies back. Want to look and feel amazing again? Here’s everything you need to know about breast lifts.

What Is a Breast Lift?

The number of breast lifts done in Newcastle and around the world nearly doubled in recent years. Thanks to dramatic improvements in plastic surgery techniques, modern breast lifts are safer than ever before and will leave you with minimal scarring.

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure can completely change the look of your breasts, nipples and areola. A breast lift can raise your breasts, increase firmness, lift your nipple position, reshape your areola, improve breast symmetry, and reduce sagging. A breast lift cannot, however, increase the volume of your breasts. If you’re looking for an increased cup size or more cleavage, you will want to consider getting a breast augmentation.

Breast lifts are often done in conjunction with breast implants because it provides both a lift and increased volume. If you are looking for more fullness, there are a wide range of breast implants that suit women of every shape and size.

What It’s Like to Get a Breast Lift

Of course, when talking about breast lifts, one of the first questions most women ask is: does it hurt? Fortunately, I can say that it’s a relatively painless procedure for the majority of women. While there will be a degree of swelling, you definitely shouldn’t be experiencing any sharp pains.

When you go for a breast lift, you can expect to be in surgery for around two to three hours. After the procedure, you’ll likely leave the hospital the same day. There are no surgical drains or other uncomfortable aspects of the post-op treatment. You’ll just leave the hospital in a supportive surgical bra to help support your breasts during the healing process.

What to Know Before You Get a Breast Lift

Before you decide to get a breast lift or any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to consider all of your options. When it comes to breast lifts, it’s especially important to be certain that you are done having children. While a breast lift won’t affect your ability to breastfeed, it is very likely that another pregnancy will undo the benefits of a breast lift. Likewise, if are planning to lose a substantial amount of weight, you should do it before getting a breast lift to ensure that you have reliable and predicable results from your breast lift.
