Breast Lift Surgery or Mastopexy
Age causes the elasticity in skin to weaken and this can result in wilting and drooping breasts. For women who are satisfied with the size of their bust but are unhappy with the shape and sagging, a lift can be the right surgery choice. The procedure raises the breasts and gives the bust a youthful and perky look.
Commonly, three incisions are made; one around the areola, one vertically from the areola to the breast’s crease and one horizontally beneath the breast. Excess skin is surgically removed and the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position and reattached. After one to three hours of surgery and about two weeks of recovery, the bust will take on a firmer shape and a rejuvenating look.
Are there complementary procedures that can be conducted during the same surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery is often combined with a breast lift. Many women add a youthful lift to their new enhanced bust and both procedures can be performed during the same surgery.
In addition, “mommy makeover” procedures are a combination of surgeries, including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and further body contouring with liposuction. “Think of it being tighter, smoother and a better shape from under the bottom of your rib cage right down to your C-Section scar,” says Dr. Bray. Also, body contouring procedures for the thighs, hips and arms can be added to any surgery. Women frequently comment on how much better clothes fit and they look and feel more youthful, confident and sexy with their new curves and shape.
Dr. Bray says breast enhancement surgery and the tummy tuck combination are the most popular and rewarding cosmetic surgery procedures that he performs in his practice.
