Life can give women a variety of reasons to consider breast lift plastic surgery. Lubbock surgeon, Dr. Jane Rowley is the trusted surgeon with knowledge and expertise that extends to breast lifts, breast augmentations, and breast reductions. Depending on the personal cosmetic results you are looking for, any of these procedures or a combination can be an option.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, called a mastopexy, helps to raise the breasts by removing extra skin then tightening the skin around the surrounding breast tissue to support the new breast shape. The nipple and the areola are also moved to a more upward position. The surgery is usually done as a same-day-surgery, and can also remove unwanted stretch marks if they are part of the extra skin that is removed.
What a Breast Lift Can do for You
A breast lift restores sagging breasts to a firmer, fuller shape. A breast lift can’t change the size of your breast, but the procedure can give your breasts symmetry, and a more youthful appearance. If you are wanting to also change the size of your breasts, a breast augmentation or breast reduction can be done in combination with a lift to achieve your desired look.
Life After Surgery
You will have some discomfort, swelling, and some draining initially after surgery. It’s important to follow your doctor’s post-surgery instructions carefully. You can expect to return to regular exercise after about 4 weeks of recovery. Scarring is minimal and will continue to fade over time.
A breast lift is an excellent way to bring life back to your sagging bustline. And, you can expect to enjoy the results of your surgery for years to come. It is best to plan this procedure after you are finished having children and nursing babies as that can change your surgery results.
