Who is a candidate for Mastopexy?
Women who have sagging breasts. Where the nipple hangs below the lower crease of the breast.
Women who are happy with their breast size when in a bra may be happy with only a breast lift procedure. However, if you wish to increase your breast size and/or achieve a fuller more rounded look. An implant, mastopexy-augmentation will likely be recommended.
Your Consultation Visit
We will discuss your concerns and expectations about your breast surgery. We will review your individual factors to ensure that we preform the correct breast surgery to achieve your desired look. Measurements and photographs will be taken to guide our surgical planning. If you desire additional breast volume, we will review implant options. These findings, your goals, and our understanding of surgical principles will allow us to settle on the correct procedure for you.
During your breast lift, we remove excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. This process will reshape and support your new breast contour and lift your nipple back towards the center of your breast. A mastopexy, alone, will not refill the upper part of your breast. If your goal is to achieve a fuller rounder look, we will need to preform your lift in combination with an augmentation. Only a mastopexy/augmentation procedure can provide a lifted, fuller, rounder breast.
This procedure is preformed at an accredited surgical hospital under general anesthesia. We will also inject local anesthetic into your tissues for better postoperative pain control.
You will be placed in a surgical bra after your procedure to minimize swelling and support your breasts as they heal. After surgery, recovery nurses will provide you with caregiver instructions and supplies. Your surgeon will visit with your caregivers to discuss how surgery went and how to care for you over the next several days. Your first clinic follow-up will be one week after surgery. Most patients return to work after this week of recovery. Advise and direction on when to return to other activities will be reviewed at your post-op visits.
If you are interested in surgery, spend some time reviewing the information and videos on our website. We also have an extensive photo library of before and after results from some of our past clients.
With that preparation done give us a call to schedule your surgical consultation.
