Gravity, pregnancy, breast feeding, and weight gain and loss all take their toll on the female breasts’ size, shape, and feel. They sag, soften, flatten and sometimes shrink. A breast lift can rejuvenate, firm up, and shape up older appearing breasts. It can also reduce the size of an enlarged, stretched areola (the dark pink skin around the nipple).
After a breast lift procedure, many women find their younger, healthier figures give them a renewed self-esteem and self-confidence.
BREAST LIFT PROCEDURE
The incisions for a breast lift are around the areola and, when necessary, along the natural contours of the breast. Once the excess skin is removed, the nipple, areola, and breast tissue are lifted up to a more youthful, natural position and the remaining skin aligned to reshape the breast.
BREAST LIFT RECOVERY
Dressings consisting of gauze and a soft bra are worn. Medication usually controls any discomfort, which subsides in a few days, as does swelling and any bruising. There may be a temporary loss of nipple sensation, which will improve with time. Patients are usually up and around in a day or two. The scars fade with time and are easily concealed by a normal bra. Since they are around and, occasionally, below the nipples, they should not be noticeable even in low cut clothing or a bathing suit. Patients can typically return back to work in one week to ten days are resume full activity in 6 weeks.
