Breast Lift Surgery at Boulder Plastic Surgery
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, firms and raises the breasts by tightening the surrounding tissue and removing any excess skin to support and reshape the breast. Changes can occur to a woman’s breasts over time that result in loss of firmness and shape. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, pregnancy, weight loss, and heredity. A breast lift can restore a more youthful and natural look, which helps many women realize a more positive self image. If you have concerns about loss of volume or shape in your breasts, a breast lift may be right for you. Contact us at Boulder Plastic Surgery to learn more.
What Does a Breast Lift Entail?
A breast lift will not round out the upper part of your breast or change the size. For those who want to increase or decrease the size of their breasts in addition to lifting and reshaping, breast augmentation or reduction surgery can be performed in conjunction with a lift. Common reasons for seeking breast lift surgery include if your breasts are elongated in shape, the nipples fall below the crease of the breast when unsupported, and if your areolas point downward. Stretching skin that results in uneven breasts is also a common reason for breast lift surgery.
During a consultation with your surgeon at Boulder Plastic Surgery, the surgical procedure and expectations will be discussed in depth. An evaluation will also take place during which your surgeon will examine the size and shape of your breasts, the condition of your skin, and the placement of the nipples. Incisions for a breast lift may vary depending on the size and shape of your breasts, size of the areolas, and the amount of sagging skin that needs to be tightened. Your surgeon will determine the best technique to meet your specific condition and needs. All incisions will be made in locations that are easily concealed by clothing, and they will heal and fade over time. Most women can return to work within a week, and most of your normal activities can be performed after several weeks. Occasional mild discomfort may be experienced for a few weeks after surgery. Any severe pain, signs of infection, or bleeding should be reported to your surgeon immediately.
