Tired of Dealing With Saggy Breasts?

There are many reasons women choose to get a Breast Lift. Breasts can lose their shape, volume, and firmness over time due to multiple pregnancies, breastfeeding, age and changes in weight. A Breast Lift aims to resolve these issues and help women feel more confident about their breasts again.

What is a Breast Lift?

A Breast Lift, otherwise known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to reshape breasts that sag due to weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding or aging effects. The breasts may be further enhanced with the placement of a breast implant at the same time to enlarge and help maintain the size and shape desired. Also, changing the size of the areola may be necessary to match the proportion of the new breast shape.

Candidates for a Breast Lift

Mastopexy can be a very gratifying procedure for the patient if their goals and expectations are realistic. Dr. Bull will listen to your goals and discuss any concerns you may have. During this consultative process, you will better understand what can be achieved with this procedure.

How Does It Work?

The procedure can be done with sedation and a local anesthetic but may require general anesthesia depending on the extent of the procedure. The different techniques involve removing excess skin and repositioning the breast tissue and areola. There are a few types of Breast Lifts. Sometimes the incision can be just around the outer edge of the areola, and for some patients, it may require a vertical and horizontal incision. The scars usually fade within the first year and become even less noticeable as time goes on.

What Results Will I See?*

Patients will see results right away after their procedure, but it can take about 6-12 weeks for the swelling to subside and the scars to begin to lighten.

What is the Recovery Process Like?*

After the procedure, the discomfort is usually minimal and can be controlled with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Bull. Bruising, swelling and soreness will improve daily and most patients are feeling well enough to return to work in 5 to 7 days. More strenuous activity can be resumed by 4 weeks. Occasionally numbness may occur, but this usually resolves in a few weeks. Other risks can be discussed with Dr. Bull in a consultation. They are rare but include mild asymmetry, scars that may not heal well, bleeding, infection and long-lasting sensation changes in the nipple.
