Gain the Confidence that Comes Along with Looking and Feeling Your Best.
Time and gravity take their toll on nearly all aspects of the human body, but nowhere is this more apparent than in the breasts. Starting in your early 20’s, connective tissue of the breast begins to lose strength and rigidity. Add in the stresses of exercise, pregnancy, breast-feeding, natural weight fluctuations plus genetics and it’s clear how the breasts are particularly vulnerable to sagging, loss of fullness and reduced skin elasticity.
Do I need a breast lift?
The ideal candidates for a breast lift are women who have:
- Deflated breasts
- Sagging breasts
- Nipples that point down or hang below the fold of the breast
What Does a Breast Lift Do?
The main goal of a mastopexy (breast lift) is to lift and support breast tissue so that it sits in a higher and more youthful position above the breast fold. Due to the nature of the procedure full benefits of a breast lift may include:
- Lifted and supported breast tissue; “perky breasts”
- Fuller breasts
- Improved breast shape
- Improved breast symmetry
- Areola reduction
- Nipple reduction
Can I get Breast Implants Instead of A Breast lift?
For a woman with sagging or deflated breasts, it is highly unlikely the results of a breast lift can be achieved with breast implants alone. Breast implants are meant to add volume to the breasts, but will do nothing to lift or support loose breast tissue. Simply put, a breast lift should be done to lift, shape and reposition the breasts while an implant should be done primarily to fill a breast that is already in good position. However, if your overall cosmetic goal includes a combination of these results, breast augmentation with breast implants may be performed in combination with a breast lift.
What Are the Scars for a Breast Lift?
The goal of a breast lift is to remove extra skin, lift the breast tissue, support and reshape the breast. To achieve these goals it is necessary to resize the areola, and cut out extra tissue between the nipple and breast fold. Once the breast is lifted and sutured closed, the incision lines resemble an “anchor” or “inverted T”. During the procedure, the nipple is not removed and nipple sensation is preserved. All incisions on the breast generally heal very well and can be hidden by a bra or bathing suit as the scars fade.
What Can I Expect With a Breast Lift?
The breast lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under mild general anesthesia and typically takes about two and a half hours. A support garment will be worn to help minimize swelling and allow early activity. Following the breast lift, minor discomfort and soreness is standard. Results are immediately visible with a more full and lifted appearance. Basic activities may be resumed in as little as 24 hours and normal daily activities after one week.
