A breast lift can address problems of sagging in the breasts to create a tighter, firmer, “perkier” bust line. Dr. John L. LeRoy can eliminate the excess fat and skin that causes breasts to take on a drooping appearance. Breast lift can do wonders for the look of your breasts and give you a more sensual, youthful aesthetic.
Breast lift surgery can help women whose breasts are taking on a sagging or drooping appearance due to a variety of factors, including:
- Recent pregnancy
- Weight loss
- Natural aging process
- Genetic disposition
A breast lift can address sagginess and droop by tightening the area and literally lifting the breasts to a higher position, giving them a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
During a breast lift procedure, Dr. John LeRoy will make an incision around the areola (the dark-pigmented area around the nipple), down to the crease of the breast. Excess skin is then removed. Dr. LeRoy will tighten the remaining skin and reshape the breasts, relocating the nipples to a higher position, with the goal of giving the breasts a much smoother, more youthful aesthetic.
Breast lift surgery typically takes about two hours or less to complete. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and can be done as an outpatient.
Recovery from breast lift surgery usually involves some swelling and bruising, which should fade as the breasts heal. Any discomfort after the procedure can be managed with medication. Although there will be some scarring after breast lift surgery, it is typically light and will fade to an even lighter appearance with time. Strenuous activities should be avoided in the first few weeks after surgery. Patients can often return to normal daily routines about one week after the breast lift procedure.
