Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
There are a number of reasons why a women's breasts change appearance and start to change shape. Some of the most common causes are, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, genetics and gravity. No matter what the cause, if you find yourself dissatisfied with your breasts because they droop, a breast lift procedure may be a good option.
The Breast Lift Procedure
Mastopexy, also known as a "breast lift" is a cosmetic procedure that lifts the breasts by removing excess skin. During the surgery your doctor will raise the nipple and create a firm, youthful appearance to the breasts. A breast lift can restore your self esteem and rejuvenate your body's curves.
Mastopexy surgery is performed under general anesthetic, and can be done in conjunction with a breast augmentation to add fullness and volume to the breasts. 87% of patients whom have undergone a breast lift surgery were highly satisfied with the results.
Sometimes a breast lift is performed at the same time as a breast augmentation (implants), which increase the size and volume of the breasts.
Your surgeon will provide you with full post surgery care. Most patients will go home the same day as they have their procedure and will be able to return to any non-physical activities within a week. While all patients differ, the majority of patients report only slight pain for the first few days, which can be comforted by prescription pain relievers, which your surgeon can provide if necessary.
All of the surgeons at PSCO are well known for both their unsurpassed patient care and excellent results. Rest assured that no matter which surgeon you choose from PSCO, you will have an experienced doctor for your breast lift procedure.
