A procedure for a more youthful chest profile
Also known as mastopexy, breast lift surgery raises breasts by removing excess skin and tightening surrounding tissue. As women age, skin elasticity can decrease from pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, gravity and heredity. Sometimes performed in conjunction with breast augmentation, breast lifts provide patients with a more youthful profile.
Women who experience a variety of issues are ideal candidates for breast lift surgery, including those:
- who are uncomfortable with the feeling that their breasts are sagging or drooping
- who have flatter or elongated breasts
- whose nipples fall below the breast crease
- whose nipples and areolas point down
- who have stretched skin
- who have enlarged areolas
- who have one breast lower than the other
This popular cosmetic procedure results in the rejuvenated appearance of the breasts. During the surgical consultation, Dr. Angelina will develop a treatment plan that meets your aesthetic goals to help you feel better and more confident. Breast lift surgery can increase the number of tops that fit properly, reduce the need for heavier-duty bras and return breasts to a more natural state.
Performed under general anesthesiology, breast lift procedures remove excess breast skin while shifting the nipple and areola to higher location. Sometimes areolas will be reduced in size if it is stretched. As incisions are closed, the skin around the breast is tightened.
After surgery patients may experience mild swelling, bruising or tenderness. Dr. Angelina will detail a postoperative plan that includes information regarding activity level.
