Is it right for me?

Breast lift surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for your self, not to fulfill someone else’s desire or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. A breast lift is a good option for you if:

  1. You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
  2. You do not smoke
  3. You have realistic expectations
  4. You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts dag, have lost shape and volume
  5. Your breast have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
  6. When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
  7. Your nipples and areolas point downward
  8. You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  9. One breast is lower than the other

What it won’t do

Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breast. If you want to look fuller or smaller, you might want to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.

About Breast Lift Procedure

Intravenous sedation and general anesthesia is the choice for this procedure with an operating time of approximately two-three hours.

Your breast lift surgery can be achieved through a variety of incision patterns and techniques. The appropriate techniques for you will be determined based on:

  1. Breast size and shape
  2. The size and position of your areolas
  3. The degree of breast sagging
  4. Skin quality and elasticity as well as the amount of extra skin

Three are the common incision patterns:

  1. Around the areola;
  2. Around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease;
  3. Around the areola, vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease

After the plastic surgeon makes the incisions:

  1. The underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve breast contour and firmness.
  2. The nipple and areola are repositioned to a natural, more youthful height.
  3. If necessary, enlarged areolas are reduced to compensate for a loss of elasticity.

When your breasts are reshaped and excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened as the incisions are closed. Some incision lines resulting from a breast lift are concealed in the natural breast contours; however, others are visible on the breast surface but in most of the cases will fade and significantly improve over time.

Recovery and results

After your breast lift procedure is completed, you’ ll need to wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize swelling and support your breast as they heal. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain the excess blood or fluid that may collect. Avoid upper body workout for one month.

The results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Over the next few months, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal breasts which have been restored to a more youthful and uplifted position.

The results of your breast lift surgery will be long-lasting. Over time, your breasts can continue to change due to aging and gravity. But you’ll be able to retain your new look longer if you maintain your weight and keep a healthy lifestyle.
