In addition to adding volume, lifting the breasts can provide a more youthful and symmetrical appearance. Breast lifts can be done alone or in conjunction with a breast augmentation. The sagging of breasts can be caused by the natural aging process, drastic weight loss pregnancy or breastfeeding.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift consists of lifting the breasts back to their original perky position. This procedure has little to do with size unless it is paired with a reduction or augmentation. There are various techniques that can address a wide variety of characteristics. Dr. Deane will work with you to address your specific concerns and choose the best technique for you.
Who Is a Candidate for a Breast Lift?
Depending on your aesthetic goals, you may opt for a lift on its own or pair with a re-sizing procedure. A lift may be a great solution for you if any of the following characteristics concern you or make you feel self-conscience.
- You are happy with size of your breasts but they are lower than you would prefer
- Your breasts are no longer firm and the skin lacks proper elasticity
- Your nipples point downward instead of facing forward
- You want to get your pre-baby breasts back
Post Procedure & Recovery
Since there are a few different methods in which the breasts can be lifted, your scar placement will vary. Incisions can be made around the areolas, from the areola to the natural crease, and horizontally along the breast creases. These scars will begin to fade over time becoming less noticeable.
After the procedure, you will be bandaged and instructed to wear compression garments that help maintain your new tissue distribution. You may have drains to look after depending how extensive the lift was. Following the procedure, it will be very important to closely follow your post-procedure care instructions for the best possible outcome. Full recovery can take anywhere between two to six weeks, and you will need to limit moderate to rigorous physical activity for at least two weeks.
