Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a well-known procedure that enhances the appearance of woman’s breasts. Breasts that sag shapelessly on the chest can be equally deflating to a woman’s sense of confidence about her feminine beauty. Firm and perky breasts are a characteristic of a youthful figure, but over time, gravity, aging, weight fluctuation, and childbearing can all cause the breasts and nipples to droop and drift downward. While exercise and diet can tone and shape the body, no amount of toning can restore projection and firmness to breasts that have lost their structure and elasticity.
As millions of satisfied breast lift patients have discovered, you don’t have to live with the disappointment of sagging, shapeless breasts. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can markedly rejuvenate your body’s contour by restoring youthful lift, projection, and firmness to the breasts. While a lift alone may achieve your aesthetic goals, many women choose to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation in a single surgery to give their breasts the fuller, shapelier curves they desire. This rewarding procedure will restore the youthful beauty of your breasts and allow you to wear tops, swimsuits, and lingerie with greater confidence.
In a breast lift surgical procedure, our plastic surgeons remove excess breast skin and elevates the breasts and nipples into a more youthful position. For women who would like to add volume to their breasts, as well, a breast lift procedure may be combined with breast augmentation in a single procedure using an innovative technique which Dr. Rosenblum developed, called the HOVER mastopexy. Breast lift surgery is a 2 to 3 hour outpatient procedure that is performed while a patient is under general anesthesia.
Your breasts may be swollen and bruised for a few days, but Dr. Rosenblum will prescribe pain medication to relieve any discomfort. Most women can return to work in one week and resume strenuous exercise in about one month.
