The breast lift (mastopexy) is a cosmetic breast enhancement surgery performed to elevate and improve the shape of breasts that have become droopy or saggy. This breast surgery is popular with women who have experienced changes to their breasts after having children, losing a large amount of weight, or simply from the inescapable effects of gravity as we age. Dr. Kolder and Dr. Improta can perform a breast lift to help restore the youthful perkiness and feminine silhouette you desire.
Your Breast Lift Consultation
During your breast lift consultation with Dr. Kolder or Dr. Improta, you will be able to ask any questions you may have about the surgery. They will go over details of the procedure, such as surgical steps, benefits, and breast lift recovery. Breast lift “before and after” photos will also be available for you to get an idea of the kinds of results you can expect.
Some women may also benefit from combining their breast lift surgeries with breast implants. This will help to avoid a flat appearance of the breasts and achieves a more natural shape.
The Breast Lift Procedure
Your breast lift will be performed under general anesthesia at our Ambulatory Surgery Center. An incision will be made in the breast to reshape the underlying tissue and remove any excess skin to help elevate the breasts. Breast implants can also be placed to improve the shape or size of your breasts.
Recovering from a Breast Lift
There will be some bruising, swelling and slight discomfort or tightness after your breast lift surgery. These conditions are temporary, and you may feel well enough to return to work within one to two weeks after surgery. Our doctors will recommend you wear a surgical bra 24 hours a day for two weeks to help aid in the healing process. You should wait 2?4 weeks to resume exercise.
Breast Lift Results
You will notice an immediate difference in the shape and position of your breasts, and your results will only get better as your body heals from surgery. Your breast lift will help to restore a more youthful appearance of your breasts, significantly reducing any sagging or downward pointing of your breasts or nipples. Women are often thrilled with their new figures, and feel more confident in everything from a sexy bikini to a simple t-shirt.
