Breast Lift Mastopexy Reduction

Occasionally, some women may have this type of surgery done to achieve a breast size that is proportionate to the rest of their body.

This surgery can also reduce the size of your areolas and help to restore sagging breasts to give them a more youthful appearance.

How is the surgery performed? 

Techniques for Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty) vary but the most common procedure involves an ellipse-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward to the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. The skin from both sides of the breast is brought down and around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breast. Prof. Wilson performs this technique which ends up with the least possible scarring: only a vertical scar and eliminates the troublesome transverse scar resulting from older techniques.

Care after Breast Reduction Surgery:

You will likely  feel a bit of discomfort after the surgery, so the Registered Nurse will offer you incremental pain relief medications.

In a few cases, usually 10 % of patients, Prof Wilson might insert  plastic tubes  to drain any blood away. He usually removes them before you leave the hospital.

Please expect that your breasts will probably be swollen and tender after the surgery. This is perfectly normal and lasts 1-2 weeks.

The Surgical assistant will fit you with a special sports bra at the end of the surgery. This reduces the swelling and helps fashion the breast contour. You will probably need to keep it on for 4-6 weeks after the surgery. 

Your stitches will probably dissolve after 10-15 days, so you will not need to have them removed.

Almost all patients can go home the same day after the surgery, except in massive breast reductions. In the latter cases, Prof Wilson might advise that you stay overnight in the hospital.
