Breast Lifting

What is a Breast Lift?

 Your breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. Pregnancy, nursing, weight gain and loss, aging and gravity can cause breasts to soften and sag.



 A breast lift is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes sagging or deflated-looking breasts.

How a Breast Lift is performed

A breast lift usually takes about 2 hours. The procedure can be achieved through a variety of incision patterns and techniques based on:

˗ Breast size and shape

˗ The size and position of your areolas (small darkened area around the nipples)

˗ The degree of breast sagging

˗ Skin quality and elasticity, as well as the amount of extra skin.

What results can I expect?

 Though results from your breast lift surgery are immediately visible, breast shape and position continue to settle over the next few months. Incision lines are permanent, but will continue to fade over time.

What is involved in recovery?

 Breast lift surgery is usually performed as a day case surgery. If this is the case, be certain to plan for someone to drive you home after surgery and stay with you at least the first night following surgery.

 Following your surgery, your breasts will be bruised, swollen and sore for one to two weeks. You’ll need to wear a surgical bra for the first week after surgery, followed by a support bra for several weeks after that.

 Post-surgical swelling will resolve over time and incision lines will fade.
