A breast lift at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa involves cosmetic surgery to reshape breast tissues. It removes excess skin and pulls remaining tissues tight, resulting in younger-looking, firmer, aesthetically pleasing, and symmetrical breasts.
The benefits you can expect after a breast lift include breasts that are:
A breast lift can correct the position of breasts and nipples that point downward. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports a 70% increase in the demand for breast lift procedures since 2000.
Ideal candidates for breast lifts are women who have lost breast volume due to weight loss, aging, having children, or breastfeeding. Breast augmentation might be a better option if you simply desire larger breasts. Some patients benefit from breast augmentation and breast lifts performed during the same procedure.
You should be in good health, at a stable weight, a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations to be considered for a breast lift at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa.
Before undergoing a breast lift, you often receive general anesthesia to help you fall asleep and avoid discomfort. Your surgeon makes an incision and repositions, removes tissue from, or reshapes breast tissues to create a youthful look.
They may move or reshape your areola and nipple if needed. You might receive a breast implant or fat transfer if you undergo breast augmentation in addition to a breast lift. Your surgeon closes any incisions after the procedure.
The surgery duration depends on the type of procedure you receive, but it often takes under three hours.
You can usually go home the same day as a breast lift, but be sure to have a family member or friend drive you. Get plenty of rest, take medications as directed, keep the incision sites clean, and avoid strenuous activity until permitted by your surgeon. You can usually return to most daily activities within about two weeks. The final results often appear after several months.
