Our surgeon will listen carefully to your goals for breast enhancement surgery at your personal consultation. If they determine you are a good candidate for a breast lift, they will collaborate with you to establish a surgery plan for the creation of your ideal breasts.
Typically the initial consultation consists of answering all of your questions and concerns about the surgery. You and the doctor will discuss your goals and expectations as well as review your medical history. The doctor will review the details of the procedure as well and what you can expect before and after the procedure. We will answer questions regarding costs and post-surgical care. If you want to proceed, the doctor will perform an examination including breast measurements and go over the various types of lift techniques available.
Your breast lift procedure begins with our surgeon making the incisions. They will use what’s known as a “lollipop incision,” which encircles the aureola and descends vertically down the breast. This allows them to remove excess tissue and skin, and lift and reshape the breast. They often reduce enlarged areolas at the same time to match the more youthful contours of the breasts.
For some women who wish to increase the size of their breasts, this procedure may be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation.
Our doctors will bandage your chest and wrap it in a compression garment after your procedure. This will allow your breasts to retain their newly youthful appearance. Most women will need to take about a week off of work. After this time, patients commonly resume their daily routines. However, our doctors will likely advise you to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for several weeks.
