What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a popular procedure because many women find that their breasts have started to sag over time. This sagging can be caused by any of the following:
- Significant weight loss or gain
Sagging breasts can cause a loss of self-confidence and self-esteem. A mastopexy corrects the position of the breasts, creating a more attractive, youthful appearance. The procedure can be performed without altering the size of a patient’s breasts. However, many women choose to have breast augmentation at the same time as a breast lift.
Dr. John H. Miller is delighted to welcome any patient seeking to improve her appearance with a breast lift.
How Is a Breast Lift Performed?
A breast lift simply removes loose, sagging skin from the breast and raises it higher, for a more youthful appearance. A breast lift is always carried out under general anesthesia and takes about two hours to perform. It usually does not require an overnight stay.
Once the anesthetic takes effect, Dr. Miller will remove any loose skin from the breast and lift it higher. When the breast is in the new, correct position, the nipple will be carefully and centrally relocated. Implants can be inserted at this stage if requested by the patient. The incision will then be closed with fine, dissolvable stitches and covered with a sterile dressing.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?
A cosmetic surgery procedure is always a personal decision, and Dr. Miller will help you make the right choice for your individual needs during your consultation. A breast lift may be a good fit if you have any of the following:
- Flat, empty-looking breasts
- Loose, sagging skin
- Aging skin leading to loss of firmness in the breasts
- A loss of body confidence
Dr. Miller has heard these concerns from women across Mississippi, particularly patients in Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, and Ocean Springs. A breast lift at Apogee Plastic Surgery can make a big difference in how you feel about your body.
What Post-Operative Care Can I Expect After a Breast Lift?
Once you undergo a breast lift, you may need to wear a sports bra for several weeks to ensure your breasts are fully supported. It is normal to feel some discomfort, but Dr. Miller will give you specific, individual advice on how to enhance your healing and recovery. You will have a series of follow-up appointments at Apogee Plastic Surgery to remove your stitches and dressings and to check on your progress. Most mammoplasty patients need to be away from work for about two weeks.
Your comfort is important to Dr. Miller, so you can be sure that you will be supported, cared for, and satisfied with your breast lift results. His team of medical professionals takes pride in offering top-notch, post-surgery attention to all of the patients at Apogee Plastic Surgery.
