Why should I consider a breast lift procedure?
There are a number of reasons that a woman may desire a breast lift procedure. Breast lift surgery can help reshape and support breasts that may have changed due to aging or other factors.
The most common concerns that lead to choosing a breast lift procedure include:
- Natural sagging of breast tissue due to aging and gravity.
- Change in the shape of the breasts due to changes that occur during pregnancy or as a result of breast feeding.
- Significant weight gain or weight loss.
- Hormonal changes, including those during pregnancy or menopause.
It is important to note that while a breast lift procedure will make your breasts appear firmer and more upright; this procedure will not significantly change the size of your breasts or cleavage. If you desire a fuller breast or larger size breast, consider combining a breast lift procedure with a breast augmentation.
Dr. Brou can help assess your personal appearance and cosmetic goals to determine which procedure or combination of procedures is most appropriate.
It is important to only consider a breast lift after child bearing activities are complete. Pregnancy and breast feeding after a breast lift procedure may negatively affect the results of the procedure.
What happens during a breast lift procedure?
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, involves reshaping and supporting new contours within the breast by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding breast tissue.
There are a number of incision types or patterns that Dr. Brou may use to achieve the best results based on your medical needs. Patients should expect that their areola and nipple will be repositioned in order to create the optimal shape and new contour.
After tightening is complete, Dr. Brou with carefully close your incisions in a way that compliments your anatomy and the new shape of your breasts. Visible scars are likely but should diminish in appearance over time. If you have concerns regarding the appearance and location of your surgical scars, discuss these with Dr. Brou during your pre-operative consultation.
How much down time should I expect with breast lift surgery?
Just like any other operation, patients can expect several hours in a recovery area and monitoring following your procedure. An overnight stay may be required, although you should expect to be able to move and walk soon after surgery. After recovery time, patients can also expect to wear a support bra or other wrapping until advised by Dr. Brou that they may be removed.
Swelling or bruising is common following breast lift surgery, but this should resolve during the recovery and healing time. Swelling should resolve within one month. Severe complications are uncommon, but if presented, will be managed by Dr. Brou and his care team.
Although individual patient results may vary, many patients are able to return to work within a week, depending on the nature of their work.
What can I expect as a result of breast lift surgery?
Just as every original procedure or appearance is unique, results of your breast lift will also vary. It is most important to discuss all of your concerns and goals with Dr. Brou. Following your consultation, Dr. Brou will advise you of likely outcomes for your appearance.
With any breast lift surgery, results of the procedure are immediately noticeable. Over time swelling will subside and the appearance of incision lines will soften. Breast lifts are long-lasting procedures, however aging and gravity will continue to affect your appearance and it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise in order to maintain optimal results.
