Breast Lift

Procedure
Breast lifting (Mastopexy) is indicated for women with sagging breast. Lifting repositions the breast to a more youthful position.

Although several methods of lifting are available, I prefer the short scar or vertical technique. This technique limits scarring and provides for a long lasting youthful breast contour. Breast tissue is lifted and skin is tightened resulting in scars only around the areola (the pigmented skin around the nipple) and a vertical scar in the lower breast. On rare occasions an inverted “T” scar is necessary.

Anesthesia
Local with IV sedation or General Anesthesia.

Operative Time
Generally one and a half to two and a half hours.

Risks
Although rare, infection, bleeding, asymmetry and delayed healing may occur.

Recovery
Generally 2 weeks to resume aerobic type activities.
