Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that breast lifts have grown in popularity by 70% since 2000. They are outpacing breast implants by 2-to-1. Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises the breasts by removing the excess skin and tightening the tissues to reshape and support the enhanced breast contour. A breast lift can improve your figure with a more youthful and uplifted breast profile. The areola can become enlarged overtime, and a breast lift can reduce this.
Over time, a woman’s breasts often lose their youthful shape and firmness because of:
- Weight fluctuations
A breast lift surgery will not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper portion of your breast. For fuller looking breasts, consider having breast augmentation surgery along with a breast lift. For smaller breasts, consider having breast reduction surgery in conjunction with a breast lift.
After the procedure, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons will place dressings and bandages on the incisions. Wear an elastic bandage or a support bra to minimize swelling and to support your breasts during healing. Our plastic surgeon may place a thin tube under the skin temporarily to drain any excess blood or fluid.
