What Is a Breast Lift?
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that enhances and reshapes sagging or drooping breasts to achieve a more youthful and lifted look. During the surgery, Dr. Ko removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to enhance breast contour and positioning. This procedure addresses the effects of factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, and aging, which can cause the breasts to lose their firmness and sag.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery offers numerous benefits for individuals seeking to rejuvenate their breasts. By addressing sagging or drooping caused by factors like pregnancy, weight loss, or aging, the procedure restores a more youthful and uplifted breast contour. The surgeon removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue, leading to enhanced breast positioning and an overall improved appearance.
Choosing to have your breast lift at Skin MD offers the advantage of not only the results but also the post-procedure support you’ll receive. Our team includes board-certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Ko, who brings over two decades of experience in assisting patients like yourself.
How Does a Breast Lift Procedure Work?
A typical breast lift is performed under either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Once ready, the process involves a series of simple steps:
- An incision is made either around the areola, around and vertically down(Lollipop), or an inverted “T” type incision is used.
- Your breasts are reshaped through lifting, repositioning, and the removal of excess skin.
- Your skin is tightened, and the incisions are closed.
- And sometimes a breast implant is inserted at this time (when the volume is desired).
What Can I Expect After the Procedure?
Certain incision lines will be inconspicuously placed along the natural contours of your breasts, while others could be more noticeable on the surface. Although incision lines are permanent, they usually become less noticeable as time passes. While healing, you’ll require an elastic bandage or support bra. Occasionally, a minor drain might be used to remove excess fluid or blood during your initial post-operative visit.
You will see the results of your breast lift immediately. It may take several weeks for your breasts to heal fully, but we’ll be there to support you at every step.
