Many women are unhappy with the changes that occur in their breasts over time. These changes can happen simply due to gravity and the normal processes of aging but may also be due to breast feeding. Often these changes can result in tired, droopy, or saggy appearing breasts. The nipple and areolar complex can also change in appearance and look or feel less perky and youthful than before.
What Is A Breast Lift?
A Breast Lift or Mastopexy is a procedure designed to elevate the sagging appearance of the breasts and restore them to a perkier, more youthful shape. The goal is to bring the breast tissue and the nipple areola complex back to their original position before all these changes occurred.
Dr. Lakshman can perform the procedure alone or in conjunction with breast augmentation with saline or gel implants. By performing an in depth initial consultation, Dr. Lakshman can determine which course of action is appropriate for you. As a dual board certified Plastic and Hand Surgeon, he brings an additional level of skill and attention to fine detail to his work and provides the best outcomes for his patients in the San Gabriel Valley as well as the Greater Los Angeles area!
Breast Implants With A Breast Lift
There are certain indications to perform a breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift. If a patient is happy with the size of their breast in a bra but is unhappy with the shape and appearance outside of the bra, then a breast lift alone may fully address their concerns. However, if a patient has issues with the shape of their breasts as well as the size and want to be larger, they should consider an augmentation and lift done at the same time. Dr. Lakshman will conduct a thorough examination and determine which surgical plan is right for you.
Breast Lift Recovery
Breast lift surgery or Mastopexy is generally tolerated very well in our patients with minimal pain and bruising. Most patients have breast pain and tenderness initially but this quickly subsides after the first one to two weeks. Dr. Lakshman is very thorough with follow-up and sees his own patients several times after surgery to insure proper healing and outcomes. It is important to use the proper post-operative garments and avoid heavy lifting, pulling or pushing until all incisions are sufficiently healed. Breast massage, scar management protocol, and avoidance of an underwire bra can also be critical in getting a superlative result. Dr. Lakshman will personally guide you through this entire process!
