What is Breast Lift Surgery?
A mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, elevates the position of the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue. Since 2000, breast lift surgery has grown by 70 percent, surpassing breast enhancement surgery in popularity. As it is less extensive than breast enhancement, many women are now turning to breast lift surgery to restore perkiness and shape back to their breasts.
During breast lift surgery, there are three different types of incision placements: around the areola, around the areola and vertically down to the crease of the breast, or a horizontal incision at the crease of the breast. Which type of incision Dr. Warnock uses may depend on patient preference and body type. Incisions are placed carefully to minimize visible scarring as much as possible.
Once the surgery is complete, Dr. Warnock will close the breasts using sutures that dissolve on their own.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?
Although a breast lift will improve the position and appearance of the breasts, it will not increase breast size significantly. Women who are seeking more drastic results may want to consider other surgical procedures, and those who are planning future pregnancies may be advised to delay surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Warnock, your health, medical history, cosmetic goals, and expectations will be discussed to determine if breast lift surgery is right for you.
What is the Recovery Like?
Following surgery, your breasts will be bruised and swollen. Your new contours will be supported by a bra and bandages for several weeks, and prescription medication will be prescribed to you to control discomfort. Full results will be evident after about four weeks, when all bruising and swelling should subside.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The improved position and shape of your breasts will be long-lasting, but can still be affected by major lifestyle changes such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process. Adopting a healthy lifestyle and stable body weight will help maintain your results over the long term.
