A breast lift provides a more youthful, lifted, firmer appearance to the breast by reducing excess skin and lifting the breast to a more favorable higher position. The procedure is designed to reduce and improve the sagginess or droopiness that may be seen due to pregnancy, nursing, weight loss, or the natural effects of gravity over time. Many women desire to recapture the firm, youthful look of their breasts.
Dr. Stephen Delia can help provide a firmer and more youthful appearance by eliminating some of the sagginess to the breast and achieve an overall more harmonious shape.
Breast Lift Procedure
During the breast lift procedure, Dr. Delia may make inconspicuous incisions in areas around the areola and underneath the breast to remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin envelope. This will help reposition the overall breast shape and nipple position to a more favorable, youthful, higher position.
Dr. Delia takes great care in minimizing the scarring, making the incisions in the fine lines and natural skin creases that are easily hidden under clothing. A breast lift can typically be done on an outpatient basis and usually takes only a few hours or less to complete.
In some cases, a breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation to help patients with loss of breast volume (along with excessive breast sagging), achieve a more youthful shape.
What can I expect after breast lift surgery?
Since breast lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, patients go home in a bra with only light dressings over the incision lines. The bra is worn as a “dressing” for two to three weeks and discomfort is minimal in most patients. Light activities may be resumed after several days, however, strenuous exercise should be avoided for several weeks following surgery, in general.
