A breast lift is an aesthetic surgical procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of your breasts. This surgery is also called a mastopexy.
Breastfeeding, weight loss, and aging are among the myriad factors that take a toll on your delicate breast tissues. As a result, your breast tissues stretch and sag, as does the position of your nipples.
A breast lift addresses these common issues by elevating your breasts, removing lax skin, and repositioning your nipples.
With age, the ligaments supporting your breasts weaken, causing your breast to drop from their once perky position.
Sagging may be particularly pronounced if you’ve gained and lost weight and after breastfeeding. When this happens, you may notice that your breasts look somewhat deflated.
A breast lift at Gabrielle B. Davis, MD Plastic Surgery corrects these aesthetic issues by lifting your breast tissue and repositioning your nipples to create a more youthful, firmer-looking breast.
As a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Davis offers you several options to achieve the look you desire. One option is a standard breast lift, where she removes excess skin and repositions your nipple in each breast.
You can also opt for a breast lift with silicone gel or saline implants. This surgery lifts and augments your breasts at the same time to improve the appearance of deflated-looking breasts.
During your consultation, you can expect Dr. Davis to evaluate your breast tissue and thoroughly discuss your options so you can arrive at the best decision.
Dr. Davis performs your breast lift in an operating room while you’re under general anesthesia, so you’re asleep during the procedure. Depending on your breast anatomy, she makes an incision around your nipple or in an anchor shape extending below your nipple.
She removes redundant skin to elevate the position of the nipple. She inserts an implant, if that’s what you choose. A standard lift lasts three hours, while a procedure with an implant is usually four hours.
Dr. Davis wraps your breasts in a soft bandage after surgery to promote your recovery. Three days after surgery, you switch to a surgical bra or sports bra, which you wear 3-4 weeks. Doing so helps your breasts heal properly.
