What are the advantages of having a Breast Lift?
- An elevated more youthful breast contour
- Nipple-areolar complexes of the desired size and the correct height
Who is a good candidate for a Breast Lift?
- If you have sagging breasts due to past pregnancies, genetics, or aging
- If the sagging is too great to be treated with an implant alone
- If your nipple-areolar complexes (pigmented areas around nipples) are enlarged
What does a Breast Lift procedure involve?
Incisions are usually around the nipple-areolar complex and in the crease under the breast. The nipple-areolar complex is repositioned higher, the excess breast skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a pleasing contour and in a more normal position.
How long does a Breast Lift take?
It may take anywhere from 2-4 hours depending upon if additional procedures are combined.
How long does it take to recover from a Breast Lift?
A support bra is worn for 2-3 weeks and the sutures are completely removed within this time as well.
When can I expect to see results from my Breast Lift?
When can I go back to work/resume my normal activities after having a Breast Lift?
Light activities may be started in 7-10 working days.
