Breast Lift Panama Surgery
Though the causes vary, many women experience the sagging of breast tissue within their life span. For some, sagging might occur after a pregnancy. For others, the breasts sag due to dramatic weight loss. Aging is also a contributing factor to the loss of the shape and firmness of your breasts. Luckily, there is a procedure that can correct this problem; a Breast Lift (Mastopexy).

A medical vacation breast lift is an outpatient surgery that can last between two and four hours. The procedure can be done under general anesthetic or local anesthesia, with a sedative, depending on the incisions and/or how much tissue is being removed. Before your breast lift surgery in Panama, your surgeon will meet with you to discuss a few matters.

Along with discussing your medical history and any medications you may be taking, your surgeon will discuss your expectations and the desired shape and size of your breasts, as well as the new position of the nipples. Measurements will be taken of your breasts and you will be given pre-surgery instructions.

If you smoke, you will be asked to stop in the weeks prior to your breast lift. You will also be asked to refrain from taking aspirin or any other anti-inflammatory drug as they thin the blood and can cause an increase in bleeding.

Though mastopexy will not heighten your risk of breast cancer, you may be asked to get a mammogram prior to and following surgery. This is simply to aid in the detection of any future change in your breast tissue.

The surgery itself consists of three incisions shaped like an anchor. The first incision your surgeon will make is around the areola. The second incision extends from the bottom of the areola straight down to the natural crease where the breast meets the chest. The third incision is made horizontally along the natural curve on the underside of the breast. Through these incisions, the surgeon removes excess breast skin. Then, the areola and nipple, along with their underlying connective tissue, are maneuvered to a higher position. Skin is then pulled taught and stitched together around and under the nipple to reshape the breasts for a more youthful look. On some occasions, a small drain will be placed in the breasts to alleviate any fluid build up that may occur.

You will generally be released from the hospital two to three hours following the surgery. Be sure to have someone to pick you up and spend at least the first night with you. Swelling and bruising of the breast tissue is common following most any surgery. You should avoid any strenuous activity in the weeks following the breast lift and your surgeon may ask you to sleep on your back. Loss of nipple sensation is also common following mastopexy, but feeling usually returns within a few weeks to a few months.

Though major complications are rare, some risks include excessive bleeding, asymmetrical breasts and/or nipple height, keloid scarring and infection.

If age, gravity, pregnancy or weight loss have left you with sagging breasts, take a medical vacation to Panama for a breast lift to rejuvenate both your looks and your self esteem.
