TRANSFORM YOUR APPEARANCE TODAY
Many women suffer from sagging breasts due to pregnancies, genetics or simply aging. If this sagging is too great to be remedied with an implant alone, breast lift surgery may be right for you. This surgery elevates the breast and offers a more youthful breast contour. Our surgeons use a variety of breast lift procedures including mini-breast lift and full breast lift, also known as a mastopexy.
Actual Patient Review
“Dr. Snodgrass is so sweet, I am glad I let him perform my surgery. The staff is awesome. I would recommend this office to all of my friends who wanted breast surgery. Thanks for making me feel relaxed and safe in your practice.”
Breast lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under sedation anesthesia. The design of the incision can vary based on individual situations and needs, but in most circumstances for a full lift an incision is made around the nipple-areola and in the crease under the breast. The nipple-areola complex is repositioned to a higher degree and the excess skin is removed. The breast is then reshaped into a more pleasing contour and more desirable position. The insertion of an implant may or may not be advisable, sometimes a “mini” breast lift may be an option instead of a full lift.
After surgery a bra is worn with light dressings over the incisions. Sutures are typically removed after 1-2 weeks. Initial discomfort is usually moderate and is easily controlled with oral pain medication. Light activities may be resumed between 7-10 days post op.
The specific risks and the suitability of a mastopexy for a given individual can only be determined at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
