Breast feeding, weight loss and aging can result in a loss of breast volume leading to a droop and sagging breast. In these situations the treatment of choice can be an uplift.
At the first consultation, it is pivotal to identify what you dislike about your breasts and ascertain your expectations.
Mr Bonomi will show you his results and you are encouraged to ask for it.
The benefits and risks of this procedure will be discussed.
If you are happy to proceed, a second consultation free of charge will be booked to discuss surgery and sign the consent form. Mr Bonomi always recommends that you undergo surgery without any doubt, and if any extra consultations are necessary these will be free of charge.
Smoking reduces the blood flow to every organ including breasts and increases the risk of complications such as bleeding, infection and nipple necrosis. So if you are a smoker Mr Bonomi suggests that you stop smoking 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery if you want to reduce the risk of complications.
The incisions can be made around the areola only when a minimal lift of the nipple is required and there is no need to reduce the lower part of the breast.
A second vertical scar in the lower part of the breast and a third one in the lower breast crease can be performed depending on the amount of skin that needs to be removed in the lower half of the breast and the amount of lift necessary.
These procedures will give a youthful look to the breasts.
All operations have risks and benefits. The possible complications following breast reduction surgery depend on many factors such as the patient’s characteristics and the type of operation. You will have the possibility to discuss this with Mr Bonomi during the consultation.
There will be no need for the removal of stitches as intradermic re-absorbable ones are used.
You will have to keep the wound dry for a week until we see you in clinic and avoid bathing for 8 weeks.
You must wear a specific bra 24 hours a day for the first two months.
You will need to plan time off work so that you can relax and recover at home.
You should avoid exercise for 8 weeks.
You will have free of charge follow up consultations at one week after surgery, 2 months and at one year. If more consultations are necessary they will be free of charge.
