Your Consultation Visit
Breast ptosis (drooping/sagging breasts) is a common condition that affects women. The loss of skin elasticity or breast volume can occur secondary to pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging. The end result is breast skin that is overly stretched, and a nipple positioned below your natural crease. This process and its correction will be discussed in detail with you at the time of your initial visit.
We will discuss your concerns and expectations about your breast surgery. The surgical process will be reviewed in order to help you understand benefits and risks of 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. A These findings, your goals, and our understanding of surgical principles will allow us to settle on the correct procedure for you.
Just like a breast lift, excess skin is removed, and the breast tissue is reshaped. However, in this procedure a breast implant will be added. This implant will provide a more youthful roundness and fullness while the breast lift restores nipple position.
Like all our breast procedures, this surgery is preformed at an accredited surgical hospital. You will be placed under general anesthesia and allowed to fully recover prior to being released to home later that same day.
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.
