Before & After Pictures
What is a Breast Lift?
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is used to raise and firm the breasts, helping to improve their shape and overall appearance. The breast tissue can change over time due to aging, pregnancy, weight loss, gravity, and heredity. As a result, your breasts can sag and become misshaped, losing their youthful firmness. A breast lift is a simple surgical procedure that can help return your breasts to their original appearance.
A breast lift may be a good option for you, if you have:
- Sagging and flat breasts
- Breast that have lost shape and volume
- Elongated or pendulous breasts
- Nipples or areolas that point downward
- Nipples and areolas that have moved below breast crease
- Breasts that are different size and shape
- Breast Lift Procedure
Dr. Stubbs uses several different technique for breast lifts. The incision is made around your areola and down the middle of the bottom portion of your breast. Excess skin is removed, and the incision is closed. He will tailor the procedure to your specific needs to give you the optimal result.
Candidates for Breast Lifts
Breast lifts are excellent cosmetic surgery procedures for those women who have lost volume in their breasts due to pregnancy or massive weight loss. A breast lift is not recommended for women who have naturally low breasts. Dr. Stubbs considers other factors before recommending a breast lift, so the best way to find out if you are a good candidate for a breast lift at Signature Surgical Arts and Med Spa is to schedule your consultation now by calling our office at 616-396-1433.
Benefits of a Breast Lift
You may still have some overhang after your breast lift, but your breasts will have a much better shape, similar to what you have with a well-fitted bra. During your consultation, Dr. Stubbs describes the results of your breast lift based on your individual needs and anatomy. He may recommend a breast lift in conjunction with other procedures, such as breast augmentation, or fat transfer.
Breast Lift Recovery
Pain and soreness are common after the surgery and can be controlled with medication. You may also experience some swelling, bruising and numbness in or around your breasts. These side effects typically resolve within a couple of weeks, although for some, it may take as long as few months. You may be asked to wear a support bra to minimize swelling and aid in healing. Incision lines from the surgery are permanent, but typically fade and, in time, may turn nearly invisible.
