Thinking About Breast Lift Surgery? Here's What You Should Know.

Breasts often change with age, losing their firmness and becoming less elastic. Pregnancy, weight loss, and gravity may all contribute to the sagging of breasts. If you’re content with the size of your breasts but wish they appeared higher and firmer, you may benefit from a breast lift. If you’re considering a breast lift, here’s what you should know.

What Is A Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon that changes the shape of the breasts. During the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin and reshapes breast tissue to raise the breasts. A breast lift does not change the size of your breasts. However, it can be done in addition to a breast augmentation or breast reduction. A breast lift can restore a perkier, more youthful appearance to sagging breasts. For many women, it boosts their self-confidence and may also relieve back pain. 

Procedure And Recovery

A breast lift is performed under a general anesthetic and requires 2-3 hours to complete. During the procedure, your surgeon will make incisions to remove excess skin and reshape breast tissue. Patients will have permanent scars, which will heal and soften over time.

After the procedure, patients will wear a post-operative bra to reduce swelling and support the breasts as they heal. Patients should expect to take 1-2 weeks off from work and any physical activity. Any swelling, bruising, and discomfort typically subsides within three weeks. Your plastic surgeon will provide detailed instructions about what to expect before and after your procedure.
