Breast Lift

Why Get a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, can raise breasts that have undergone significant droop due to pregnancy, weight changes, and natural aging. Several factors can contribute to the drooping of breasts. These factors can range from natural aging, genetics, gravity, fluctuations in weight or even pregnancy and breastfeeding.  

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lifting procedures have grown 70 percent since 2000 and outpaces breast implants two to one. If you are content with the size of your breast, but do not want the sagging breasts, then a cosmetic breast adjustment would be ideal for you.

A breast enhancement can raise the breasts while improving skin tone, breast shape, and overall aesthetics. In certain patients, a saggy breast raising is performed in conjunction with breast augmentation in order to achieve the desired result. A comprehensive consultation will help determine what procedure best fits your needs based on your anatomy.

What's Involved in a Mastopexy Procedure?

Breast lifts are performed on an outpatient basis. Incision and scar placement depends on the type of bosom lift you undergo. The pain associated with a breast size reduction tends to be mild. You may need to wear an elastic bandage or surgical bra for a short period of time. During mastopexy surgery, the surgeon raises the breast by removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue.

Recovery Time & Information

Your Ft. Lauderdale cosmetic surgeon will speak with you about the various types of incisions based on the amount of lift you need and the quality of your skin. Breast size adjustment surgery is an outpatient procedure and during recovery, you will be required to wear an elastic bandage or special bra to support your breasts in the healing process and minimize swelling. The patient will also be given specific instructions by their Ft. Lauderdale plastic surgeon to follow during recovery. Most activities that do not involve heavy lifting can be resumed after one week.
