Aging, weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to lose their firm and perky shape as sagging tissues develop. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, can lift and reshape the breasts for a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The breast tissues begin to sag and lose firmness as they lose elasticity. Breast lift surgery addresses loose skin and tissues to lift and reshape the breasts and restore firmness.
As the breast tissues stretch and droop, the nipple-areolar complexes may become enlarged and point downward. Breast lift surgery can reposition the nipples and areolas for a more youthful and balanced appearance.
Sagging breasts can make a woman feel embarrassed or self-conscious about her overall appearance. Breast lift surgery will not only lift the breasts to a more youthful position, but it can also improve a woman’s self-esteem and confidence.
During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will explain the details regarding your breast lift surgery and will work with you to determine a surgical plan that meets your individual needs while creating the aesthetic results you desire.
There are a few incision options for breast lift surgery. The choice of incision depends on the desired amount of lift as well as the anticipated amount of skin tightening.
Breast lift surgery can be performed alongside breast augmentation for women who wish to enhance the size and shape of their breasts using saline or silicone breast implants. In some instances, fat transfer can also be used to augment your breasts naturally. Breast reduction surgery is another procedure that can be combined with breast lift surgery for women who wish to reduce and reshape the size of their overly large breasts.
You will be asked to wear a surgical bra to support your new breasts and help minimize swelling following your breast lift surgery. Most swelling and bruising will resolve after a few days. Make sure to avoid any heavy lifting or physical activities that can put stress on the treated area for at least six weeks. You will be able to return to work three weeks after your procedure.
Some moderate discomfort will ensue following your breast lift procedure. Dr. Hadeed will prescribe you pain medication to help with this.
The degree of scarring on your breasts will depend on the technique used during your surgery. While some scars can be hidden by the natural breast contours, others may be visible. Most scars can be hidden with clothing and will likely fade over time.
The cost of your breast lift procedure will vary based on factors that include anesthesia fees, surgical fees, and techniques used. Dr. Hadeed will provide you with a cost estimate during your consultation.
