• Can the breast lifting procedure prevent pregnancy or breastfeeding?
No. Pregnancy and breast-feeding are possible but can alter the result. A period of 6 months is recommended before or after surgery.
• Can breast sag reoccur after a breast lift?
Yes. With age the breasts tend to sag. Similarly, after pregnancy or weight loss, the results of the operation may be altered.
• Can the procedure be repeated several times?
Yes. A treatment for ptosis can be carried out several times in a lifetime.
• Treatment of Ptosis and breast cancer
The risk of breast cancer is unchanged after a ptosis treatment.
In some cases, the treatment of breast ptosis can lead to the discovery of breast cancer, either through systematic analysis of the gland that may be removed (anatomo-pathological exam) or through mammographic assessment conducted generally before the procedure.
