Give your confidence a boost with a breast lift. Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, provides a solution to sagging that can occur with aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. A breast lift surgery can lift the breasts for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Why choose Dr. Bajaj for breast lift surgery?
Dr. Bajaj is well-known for her cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery skills. When you choose breast surgery, you want a surgeon who not only understands the aesthetics, but also the anatomy. Dr. Bajaj will consult with you to determine if breast lift surgery can achieve the results you desire.
Because breast lift surgery does not change the size of your breasts, you may want to consider additional procedures, such as a breast lift in conjunction with a breast augmentation. That’s why understanding your goals is so important to Dr. Bajaj.
Breast Lift Procedure
A breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made around the areola, along the breast crease, and in a vertical line connecting the two incisions (the anchor incision) or around the areola with a vertical line extending inferiorly (the lollipop). Excess skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped so that the nipple and areola complex are returned to the point of maximal projection of the breast. Since the nipple areola complex remains attached to the underlying breast tissue, the risk of losing sensation is low.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From A Breast Lift?
Expect some soreness and swelling for a few weeks. Generally, patients can return to work and perform normal activities, like driving, within 3-5 days. You will want to avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks.
How Long Does It Take For Breast Lift Scars To Heal?
Normally scars need 6-12 months to fade after a breast lift. Many factors go into the recovery process such as genetics, nutrition, and following the postoperative instructions that you receive. Typically after a breast lift, you will need to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for 2-3 weeks after surgery.
Risks Of A Breast Lift
As with all surgical procedures, there are risks associated with breast lift surgery. Potentially adverse events include discomfort, infection, changes in sensitivity, and asymmetry. During your consultation, Dr. Bajaj will review these risks with you, explaining any steps you can take to minimize them.
