Breast Lift Surgery Techniques:
- Depending upon the degree of sagging, a variety of different incisions and scars are produced. This can range from scars just around the areola, to include scars which run downward and beneath the breast, hidden in the fold. As with any breast surgery, be aware that there is always some scarring. The choice of the best breast lift technique for you is discussed during your consultation at our Baltimore, Maryland area plastic surgery center.
- Breast lift can be combined with breast implants to increase the breast size. Dr. Schuster does not believe that an implant alone “lifts” the breast. Sometimes only adding an implant creates a larger, more saggy breast. Many women today simply want a tighter, slightly more full but more perky breast. This will usually require some type of breast lift.
- Breast lift surgery at our office near Baltimore, Maryland may also be combined with liposuction, tummy tuck, face lift, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, laser skin resurfacing, and more to further enhance your overall transformation.
- “How do I know what’s right for me?” Answer: If you are happy with your cup size in a bra but don’t like the shape, then chances are you need only a breast lift. If you are still unsatisfied with the size of your breast in a bra, then you need an implant as well.
Recuperation After Breast Lift Surgery:
- Performed as an outpatient procedure
- Relatively easy, moderate pain
- Mild bruising and swelling for one week
- Recommend one week off from work after breast lift surgery
- Return to full activity and sports in four weeks
