What is a breast reduction with lift?
A breast reduction with lift is a combination of breast reduction and breast lift to help women achieve a more balanced look. This combination of procedures is ideal for women who feel burdened by over-large or low-hanging breast tissue.
Can a breast reduction with lift can improve my lifestyle
Large breasts have a tendency to get in the way of activities from a woman’s job, to what clothing they can wear and the exercise they do.
Why get both a breast reduction and a breast lift?
Discomfort, whether physical or social, is often the most cited reason women get a breast reduction with lift.
Am I a candidate for breast reduction with lift?
If your breasts are impacting day-to-day living, clothing choices or job, then this could be the procedure for you.
Are the results of a breast reduction with lift permanent?
For most women the results are permanent. However, if you experience significant weight change, or have children your breasts will lose their shape.
Also, no one can escape gravity so you can expect some drooping (ptosis) later in life.
Do I need any tests prior to a breast reduction with lift?
For women over 40, Dr Jane Paterson may recommend you have a mammogram before any form of breast surgery is carried out.
Dr Jane may also ask for a blood test to be done to check your blood level and chemistry. The results of these will help in ensuring your surgery is a smooth process.
Will a breast reduction with lift make me lose my balance?
A breast reduction with lift will certainly make you feel lighter on your front: which is why many women undergo this procedure. There should also be less strain on your neck and shoulders, but you shouldn’t lose your balance.
