It is usually recommended that patients should be 18 years old before undergoing cosmetic breast surgery. The argument is that the breasts may still be developing and, if surgery is too early, this development may continue requiring more surgery later. It is also felt that psychologically development is also incomplete.
However, there are good reasons why early surgery might be sensible. The breasts may be deformed, unequal in size and or very large, all causing psychological harm, which could be averted by surgery. The common deformity is tubular or conical breasts. On these occasions, the surgeon is likely to ask for confirmation from the parent, GP, and psychologist.
Female breast size is determined by several factors, including genetics, body weight and hormonal influences. Unfortunately, larger breasts can often be associated with a variety of problems, ranging from self-consciousness and inconvenience (especially if you are particularly sporty, or if you struggle to find flattering, well-fitting bras and clothes), through to more serious discomfort. This can include backache, neck pain and skin irritation.
By combining the optimal choice of treatment with my skills and surgical vision, I am able to create the natural ‘invisible’ finish for my patients. I believe in exceptional one to one care and in taking the journey together from the start to finish.
When it comes to making a decision about which provider or surgeon to select as your chosen preference for your Breast Lift procedure, safety and quality of care are typically the most important considerations to think about, alongside any Clinic and surgeon’s level of experience with Breast Lift procedures.
