What is a Breast Lift?
Breast lift surgery is a body contouring procedure that lifts and reshapes the breasts by reducing loose skin and pulling tight the remaining tissue to create a firmer, younger look. This cosmetic breast surgery can help women who experience reduced breast shape, lost breast volume, and sagginess because of aging, gravity, weight loss, or pregnancy. At Peak Plastic Surgery Center in Denver, CO, Dr. Eric Barker offers breast lifts to help patients live more comfortably. As an expert plastic surgeon, Dr. Barker creates a detailed surgical plan based on the severity of your breast sag and cosmetic goals. Please schedule a consultation to learn more about the benefits of a breast lift.
What To Expect From A Breast Lift
Breast lift surgery is an excellent option for patients with breasts that sag, point downward, and have excess skin. If your breasts look elongated, mastopexy can help enhance their appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Barker will create a surgical plan to address your cosmetic concerns and determine the best incision technique. The incision type generally falls under two categories: the anchor incision or straight-line vertical incision. Dr. Barker will select the best incision type based on the amount of excess tissue.
Taking about 2 – 4 hours to complete, Dr. Barker will administer general anesthesia at the beginning of your treatment. Next, he makes an inverted-T or straight-line incision based on your treatment plan. After making the incision, Dr. Barker carefully excises the excess skin, tightens the remaining tissue, and lifts the breasts so they appear healthy and perky. Once Dr. Barker closes the incisions, he will take you back to the recovery room for monitoring, and we will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing.
The overall recovery period for breast lift surgery is more lengthy than breast augmentation. After the procedure, you will need to wear a support bra to reduce swelling. Additionally, a tiny tube is placed near the incision site to help decrease fluid retention. Within several days, your post-surgical swelling should go away. A few weeks after surgery, results from your breast lift treatment become visible as your newly shaped breasts take a higher position on your bustline. The breasts will look natural, and you will feel beautiful and more youthful.
