4 REASON OF SAGGING BREASTS
Firstly, the breast is the tissue overlying the chest (pectoral) muscles. Large breast size leads to a higher chance of sagging, solely because higher breast mass is more vulnerable to gravity.
Secondly, some women have probably been wearing wrong bra sizes or very tight bras that lead to the sagging breasts.
Thirdly, the inappropriate ways of breast massage and having sex is a reason of the sagging breasts.
Finally, the notion of loose breasts can also lead to droopy, deflated boobs.
WHAT IS BREAST LIFT?
Lifting the sagging breasts is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to change the shape of breasts. During a breast lift, excess skin is removed and breast tissue is reshaped to raise the breasts.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about Breast surgery:
Q: Will I Be in Pain?
A: Most of our customer share with us the recovery is far less painful than they expected. Some discomfort, swelling is to be expected and can be well controlled. You will have prescription pain medication in 5 days after the procedure to help you stay comfortable through the first stages of healing. A return to normal light activity is possible as soon as you feel ready, usually within a day or two.
Q: Will my results look natural?
A: Customer will have the accurate diagnosis and results afterwards through VECTRA XT 3D imaging system. Our surgeons will offer suggestions to achieve balanced proportions not only on the breasts, but throughout the body. Viewing and discussing these simulated photos with our doctors will help guide them in performing your surgery to your specifications so that you are sure to love the end result!
Q: Will augmentation/enlargement work for me if I have saggy breasts?
A: It depends on how much your breasts sag. If you have mild sagging breasts, you can receive breast implants to enlarge your breasts because they can fill up a loose skin envelope (after pregnancy and breast-feeding) making the breasts look full again.
Q: Do i need to exchange the breast implants?
A: If they aren’t broken there is really not reason to exchange/replace them unless you're not happy with the size anymore.
Q: Will my nipple sensation or feeling change?
A: Some women experience changes or loss of nipple sensation after breast augmentation. In many cases, these changes are only temporary and nipple sensation returns after several months. Unfortunately, more than 10% of women, however, have permanent alterations in nipple sensation.
Q: Can I still breastfeed after breast surgery?
A: The answer to this question is simply that most women can still breastfeed just fine after breast surgery. Breastfeeding with implants has been shown to be safe for the baby and the mother.

- Discuss with your surgeon what your hope to achieve, what may or may not be possible given your existing breast anatomy, body type and skin elasticity,
- Comprehensive discussion regarding risks and complications,
- Previous medical history, underlying medical conditions, a complete list of all medications you are taking, birth control, allergies, the frequency of having sex etc. will also be recorded,
- Working with VECTRA XT 3D imaging system to visualize what the potential outcome of your surgery will be:
The VECTRA Imaging procedure begins with a 3D photograph being taken of your breasts. We then use your actual image and the system tools to manipulate your photo using different types, profiles, and sizes of implants to show you simulated “after” photos giving you a realistic animation of what result you can expect after your procedure.
You will clearly see the pictures on VECTRA 3D machine about:
+ Surgical incisions -
+ Breast implant usage to increase size (optional). The breast implant plays a fundamental role to shape the breast after lifting.
The type of incision used during breast lift procedure will vary depending on the degree of lift and whether implants will be placed during the surgery. The more removal and reshaping required, the longer the scars tends to be. At EMCAS, our team makes all efforts to ensure minimal scarring.
PREPARE FOR YOUR SURGERY
- Strictly NO food and drink including water for 6-8 hours before surgery. Having food or drink in your system could cause complications from the anesthesia,
- Stop smoking before your procedure for a few weeks to avoid nicotine-related risks,
- Do not take medications that could increase bleeding, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and aspirin. Avoid supplements that have similar effects, like vitamin E and fish oil,
- You must be cleared for surgery by appropriate pre-surgery screening (blood test, EKG, X-ray, ultrasound etc.) in accordance with your surgeon's instructions and our Patient Safety requirements,
- Choose clothes that will be comfortable (loose-fitting clothes and slip-on shoes). You shouldn't wear contact lenses, accessories like jewelry, watches, wigs or hairpins. Do not apply any products to your skin or hair the morning of surgery,
- Line up a family member or friend to drive you home after your procedure or post-operative care since you will be receiving anesthesia.
Operative time is totally about 120 - 150 minutes under general anesthesia. Once the incisions are made, excess skin, fat and tissue are removed then the nipple and areola are repositioned for a natural placement. The remaining skin is tightened as the incisions are closed.
TAKING CARE OF THE LIFTED BREASTS:
The recover time at hospital is 24 hours. You can expect to resume your normal work schedules within a few days. If implants are used without flaps, your recovery time may be shorter. In general, more complex procedures performed on larger areas will take longer to heal, depends on whether it was a stand-alone surgery or if it occurred in conjunction with another body contouring procedure. Swelling may last for several weeks, with most patients reporting mild discomfort, which can easily be controlled with pain medication.
It is a good idea to have someone there to take care of things for you while you recover for the first few days. You need to sleep on your backs with arms near sides for 2-3 weeks. You will want to avoid upper body exercise for the first couple of weeks, and only then gradually add it back in. Physical activity and exercise can be fully resumed after 6 weeks depending on how quickly you recover. Think of sexual activities as exercise - you should be careful not to directly touch the breasts or incisions, and it is also important to avoid letting the breasts bounce up and down.
Proper recovery is essential to minimize scarring after undergoing a breast lift. Scars take time to fade, but as the years go by, the scars from breast lift surgery should become less and less of an issue.
