Breast lift surgery is one of the most powerful procedures to restore a woman breast shape and beauty. Having full, youthful-looking breasts is a critical aspect of how women feel about their physical appearance. However, pregnancy, genetics, and environmental factors eventually take their toll on our bodies. It’s generally understood that the breasts will gradually decline as a result of skin losing its elasticity and fat deposits diminishing. This can cause breasts to sag or droop.
Thankfully, breast lift surgery can dramatically reverse these unwanted effects. A breast lift removes excess skin and tightens what is left behind, creating a more firm and youthful aesthetic. Often times, a breast lift is combined with other procedures such as breast augmentation with implants to add more volume or increase size.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Moeinolmolki, he will discuss the various techniques, procedural options, and nuances of the breast lift procedure while sitting face to face. The doctor will be sure to answer all of your questions and address any concerns you may have moving forward. In some cases, Dr. Moeinolmolki will advise the patient on a specific type of breast lift with combination of liposuction and breast augmentation procedure.
There are various methods of breast lift surgery and depending on the degree of droop also known as ptosis, Dr. Moein will decide which surgery is most appropriate for you. In general the more ptosis you have the more incisions you will have to lift your breast to it’s normal position. The Three main types of breast lift surgery:
1) Crescent Lift: Is performed by removing a crescent segment to the skin and subcutaneous tissue to move the nipple & areola complex into a more appropriate position at the center of the breast. This method is reserved for minor droop.
2) Circumareolar Lift: Also known as the, Benelli Lift, Donut lift, which is also reserved for minor droop.
3) Lollipop Lift: Requires an incision around the nipple/areola and an incision vertically down. This type of lift can effectively treat many types of breast ptosis.
4) Anchor Lift: This is the most effective form of lift that deals with both vertical and horizontal breast tissue excess and misalignment. The incision is very similar to Lollipop Lift with the addition of an inframammary fold incision. Candidates for this type of breast lift require significant amount of breast lift and tissue reduction and movement.
Candidates for breast lift surgery are generally women in good overall physical and emotional health. Women who are planning to get pregnant in the near future should wait on breast lift surgery until afterwards.
There are several technique options for breast lift surgery, also referred to as mastopexy. Each procedure is tailored to fit the desires of the individual patient. The results may also vary depending on the severity of sagging.
Upon completion of your breast lift surgery, the recovery process begins. Generally speaking, patients can expect to return to their normal daily routines within a week. Keep in mind, however, that the breasts are likely to have swelling and feel sore for several days after the procedure. The doctor will prescribe medication to alleviate any discomfort.
