The purpose of a breast lift is to correct symmetry, restore your breasts to a more youthful appearance, and give you back the confidence of looking and feeling better in your clothes. During a breast lift Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Trovato knows how to restore and reshape your breasts to provide you the best overall appearance for your body.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, clinically known as a mastopexy, is an effective plastic surgery procedure that addresses sagging breasts by lifting the breasts and enhancing their appearance

To achieve optimal results, Dr. Trovato will first begin by assessing your breasts, listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and take pictures of your breasts to determine your best approach. The end result is breasts that sit higher on the chest and are far younger-looking. Some of our Dallas breast lift patients combine their procedure with either a breast reduction or breast augmentation if the need is there.

Am I a good candidate for a Breast Lift?

Ideally, a breast lift can benefit women whose breasts have begun to sag with age

Their breasts either droop, are elongated, or have lost volume and shape. The sagging of breasts may result from pregnancy and breastfeeding, loss of weight, or the simple march of time. If the nipples point downward, a breast lift is probably in order. Women who plan on having additional children should not have a breast lift. The added weight gain and breastfeeding will negate the results of breast lift surgery.

The procedure should wait until after the last child has finished breastfeeding for those planning to have children. You may be an ideal candidate for breast lift, but the procedure requires an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon like Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Matthew Trovato. Dr. Trovato specializes in breast augmentation, silicone or saline breast implants, breast lifts, and mommy makeovers. It is vital you have the information needed to make an informed decision about your cosmetic procedure, so schedule your breast lift consultation today.

Benefits of a
Breast Lift

five to seven days to recover

Breast Lift surgery is ideal for women whose breasts are affected by a pregnancy, breastfeeding, or significant weight loss. Your breast lift downtime is considerably less and takes about five to seven days to recover than other similar breast surgery procedures. In addition, your pain management is handled with over-the-counter medication as needed. Overall, 93 percent of patients rate their breast lift as a worthwhile procedure.

Breast Lift Procedure

Prior to your breast lift surgery, Dr. Trovato will discuss the incision possibilities with you

These can be dictated by the degree of sagging involved and other factors such as breast size and shape. One approach creates two rings around the breast areola in a doughnut fashion. This method is better for women with smaller cup sizes, plus it establishes less scarring. A second approach is to make an incision around the areola and then downward, ending at the crease underneath the breast. This forms a lollipop shape. Finally, for women with the most significant sagging, an anchor-shaped incision provides the best access.

Once the incisions are made, breast tissue will then be manipulated or removed to achieve the patient’s breast contour goals. The nipple and areola may be repositioned higher on the breast or may be resized. Excess skin is trimmed to gain a firm appearance and feel. Your breast lift surgery in Dallas will take about two to three hours but may take longer if you elect to have other breast surgery procedures simultaneously. In addition, small tubes are placed at your incision sites at the end of your surgery to help with the drainage of excess fluid and blood.

Breast Lift Recovery

Your procedure is performed as an outpatient surgery, which offers you the opportunity to heal in the comfort of your home. Breast lift patients will experience some soreness, swelling, and bruising for the next 24 to 48 hours. Your new breasts will be wrapped in bandages for about a week, and then you will need to wear a post-surgical support bra for the next month. Patients can usually return to work in about a week but must avoid strenuous activity for about a month. It is imperative that you give yourself plenty of time to recover after breast lift surgery.

Breast Lift Results

Immediate and visible results

Breast lift results are visible immediately but continue to improve with time as swelling subsides, and the scarring begins to fade. Once your bandages are removed, you will notice the lift in your breasts and a perkier appearance. Your final results will continue to evolve in the next three to four months. The risks involved are the same as any surgery, but the breast lift procedure is generally safe and uncomplicated. To maintain your results, it is vital to avoid significant weight gain. With proper care, your results will last up to ten years.
