Breast Lift in Thailand
What is Breast Lift?
Breast Lift in Thailand (mastopexy) restores breast shape that has been lost due to gravity, nursing children, etc. A breast lift addresses sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume and drooping nipples and stretched areolas (the darker area surrounding the nipples), recreating a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. If there is too little or too much breast volume, a breast augmentation or breast reduction might be recommended in addition to a lift. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour to perform and you will likely receive general anesthesia (asleep and pain-free) before this procedure.
How is the procedure performed?
There are three techniques for your Breast Lift in Thailand. Your surgeon will select a technique based on your breast size and shape, areola size and position, degree of breast sagging, skin quality and elasticity and how much extra skin you have.
• Donut Lift
Also known as a Circumareolar Lift, this technique is best used for slight nipple asymmetry or a mild lift. First, your surgeon will make a doughnut-shaped incision around the areola to remove tissue. Then he cinches the breast skin to tighten it. This is less effective than a full mastopexy, but leaves a less noticeable scar.
• Lollipop Lift
This is also called the Vertical Mastopexy. In this lift, a lollipop-shaped incision is made from the crease of the breast vertically up to and surrounding the nipple. This is a very effective lift for many women with low hanging breasts.
• Anchor Lift
The incision in this lift is shaped like an anchor. It is similar to the lollipop, but also travels along the breast crease. This is the most invasive breast lift procedure, but very effective for women with very droopy breasts, or a long inframammary fold (distance from breast crease to nipple).
What result can I expect?
If your Breast Lift in Thailand is performed properly, your breasts should not return to their preoperative droop for decades, assuming you don’t have significant weight fluctuations or go through pregnancy. Some settling may occur, but the new nipple position should remain intact.
What are risks involved with a Breast Lift?
Following your surgery, your breasts will be bruised, swollen and sore for one to two weeks. You may experience some loss of sensation in your nipples and breasts following mastopexy surgery, with sensation gradually returning over the next weeks and months. However, some patients experience numbness for up to a year. On rare occasions, loss of sensation can be permanent.
How is Breast Lift recovery?
During your recovery, it is very important to limit your activity as directed by your surgeon and to immediately report any side effects or problems you’re having.
How is aftercare for surgery?
After the operation, expect to be uncomfortable for a few days. Your doctor will usually recommend that you wear a bra or have a special dressing in place to provide the support you will need during your recovery. For the first week, you may need pain medication. Within two to three weeks, your surgeon will remove all your stitches. The size and shape of the breast will continue to improve as time passes.

What do I need to do to prepare for Breast Lift surgery?
• If you smoke, you must stop. Women who smoke after breast surgery have a higher risk of poor healing, infection, and scarring. You should even avoid breathing in secondhand smoke.
• You may be asked to stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), warfarin (Coumadin), and any other drugs that make it hard for your blood to clot.
• Arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery and help you around your house for several days.
