Lockdown has caused a major shift in cosmetic surgery trends. The rise of online video calls has made us much more aware of our facial and upper body features. While many have turned their attention to anti-ageing treatments, for others the breasts have become a point of focus.
The number of breast procedures requested during lockdown has increased dramatically. So, what types of breast surgeries are being carried out? Here we’ll look at the procedures currently booming in popularity.
Mastopexy – The breast lift
A Mastopexy is designed to correct droopy breasts. Sagging can occur due to ageing, significant weight loss, or after breastfeeding. There are a number of different types of Mastopexy procedures that can be carried out. The type recommended to you will be based on the severity of the drooping, alongside other factors.
After undergoing a Mastopexy, your breasts will be perkier, higher up and they will appear much more youthful.
Breast asymmetry surgery
Breast asymmetry is extremely common, but the level of asymmetry can vary. If your different sized breasts are causing issues with your self-confidence, breast asymmetry surgery could be the answer.
Numerous surgical techniques can be used to treat asymmetry issues. Your treatment options will be discussed with you during the consultation.
Breast reduction surgery
Breast reductions are proving particularly popular with women during lockdown. There has been a shift in breast surgery trends, focusing largely on achieving natural looking breasts. However, the effects of the lockdown have also had an impact on the popularity of the procedure.
A breast reduction involves removing excess skin, tissue, and fat to reduce their size.
