A breast lift, or mastopexy, reshapes and lifts sagging breasts. Breast lifts can also reduce the size of enlarged nipples, and often enhance the contour and shape of the breasts without any need for breast augmentation.
Breast lifts are available for women with fully developed breasts that sag or have nipples that point downward. Common causes of reduced elasticity and sagging of the breasts include:
- Weight fluctuations
Dr. Ashruf at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery of Maryland incorporates high definition Brazilian techniques to create a lifted, youthful breast profile that increases self-confidence. Some women choose to enhance the size and volume of their breasts during a mastopexy, which is often referred to as a combination breast lift augmentation.
Breast Lift Procedures
Breast lift procedures are performed with the use of general anesthesia to ensure that you feel no pain during the procedure. First, Dr. Ashruf creates several incisions around the areolar skin – the deeper pigmented skin masks breast lift scars – and cuts away excess skin from the skin envelope on the underside of the breast. The incisions are then closed with stitches, and your chest is tightly wrapped with supportive gauze.
What to Expect After a Breast Lift
Immediately following the breast lift procedure, you will remain in our surgical center under the close supervision of our highly qualified nurse practitioners to ensure that no complications arise. Patients are encouraged to allow themselves one full week of rest and relaxation following the breast lift procedure.
Strenuous activities, such as exercise and heavy lifting, should be avoided for up to six weeks after the breast lift procedure. It is important to attend follow-up appointments with Dr. Ashruf over the course of the healing process to ensure you get the best results from your procedure.
