Breast Lift Surgery in India

The breasts droop or sag due to reasons of pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss and aging, and this usually has a negative impact on a woman’s self-confidence. Sagging or asymmetrical breasts can be corrected through breast lift surgery which restores the natural appearance of the breasts. Breast lift surgery can also be emotionally rewarding apart from the physical improvement ensured. The procedure involves removing excess skin on the breasts thereby giving them a more youthful and attractive appearance.

Breast Lift Surgery Procedure in India – Breast lift surgery in India is provided under general anesthesia which results in the patient sleeping for at least 3- 4 hours, which is the duration of the procedure. In this procedure, the underlying breast tissue is raised and reshaped to improve the firmness of the breasts and their contour. The nipple and areola are raised and placed in a more youthful position. If required, enlarged areolas are reduced by removing skin at the perimeter. Any excess breast skin is removed to compensate for loss of elasticity. The remaining skin is tightened and the incisions are closed. The incision lines are permanent, but in most cases these fade and improve over time.

What is gynecomastia?

Overly large male chests can cause emotional issues and poor self-esteem for men.

Gynecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast. The masculine appearance of the chest is replaced by what looks like small or sometimes even fully developed "woman-like" breasts. The enlargement of the breast in gynecomastia is caused by growth or proliferation of the glandular component of the breast much like the changes seen in a woman's breast as she passes through puberty.

Breast Enlargement caused by too much fat (ie. not primarily glandular enlargement) is called pseudo gynecomastia.

Despite the different causes, both lead to breast enlargement and both are amenable to cosmetic improvement.
