Rejuvenate Your Bust Line with a Breast Lift

Breasts can sag due to factors such as aging, pregnancy, smoking, weight fluctuations, and more. All women are affected by gravity at some point in their lives, but for some it occurs at a younger age than expected. A breast lift, or mastopexy, raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue.

If you are unhappy about sagging breasts, consider a breast lift at Lowe Plastic Surgery of Oklahoma City.

When to Undergo a Breast Lift in Oklahoma City

Mastopexy (i.e. breast lift surgery) can treat sagging breasts that have lost shape and volume. It may be right for you if:

  • Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape
  • When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
  • Your nipples and areolas point downward
  • You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  • One breast is lower than the other.

In some cases, mastopexy can also be combined with other techniques for breast enhancement. For example, breast lift surgery is sometimes combined with augmentation, which helps to restore breast fullness at the same time.

FAQ

How will my breast lift be performed?

There are several techniques for a breast lift. The best technique for you is determined by your skin quality, breast size, breast shape, areola size and position, and the degree of breast sagging exhibited.

IV sedation or a general anesthetic can be used. Three incision patterns are commonly used in a breast lift: 1) around the areola 2) around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, and 3) around the areola, vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease.

After incisions, the breast tissue is lifted and reshaped. The nipple and areola are elevated. If necessary, enlarged areolas are reduced by removing skin at the perimeter. Loose breast skin is removed to compensate for a loss of skin elasticity. Next, the remaining skin is tightened and the incisions are closed. Sutures, adhesives and surgical tape can close the skin to finish the surgery.

What should I expect during recovery from breast lift?

Dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions. You will wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize swelling and support your breasts during healing. A thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess fluid that collects after surgery. You will be given instructions about aftercare, medications, and follow-up appointments.
