Breast lift, also known as Mastopexy, surgically lifts and reshapes the breasts in order to look more youthful, shapely and firm.
Breast lift surgery results in more youthful looking breasts and may restore the shape of flat or pendulous breasts after weight loss or pregnancy. In some cases, Dr. Herman may recommend the placement of a breast implant, or breast augmentation, to enhance breast shape or size.
Dr. Herman is an expert in all the different surgeries available and based on your needs and desires will recommend which surgery will best for you. Incisions are inconspicuously placed around the nipple and areola, and in some instances a vertical incision from the nipple to the breast crease or under the breast may be necessary.
Breast Lift Surgery is most often performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia.
Recovery depends on the extent of your breast lift. You can return to light activities within a day or two and full activities within 1-2 weeks.
Results can be long-term, but weight loss/gain, future pregnancy, or natural aging may alter your appearance.
