What is Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure in the realm of cosmetic surgery aimed at reshaping sagging breasts to restore a more youthful and firmer breast shape. Depending on the patient's aesthetic goals, the procedure can include breast lifts with or without breast implants, and also breast augmentation. This process involves moving the nipple areolar complex to a higher position, giving the breasts a perkier look.
Our Approach at Leva Medical
At Leva Medical, our experienced surgeons, led by Dr. Jean-Paul Leva, can create an improved breast shape for patients desiring a successful breast lift. In some cases, we can even provide upper pole fullness without implants using a combination of techniques like fat grafting. We tailor every procedure to the unique anatomy of the patient, ensuring that we meet your specific needs and goals and helping you achieve the look and feel you desire.
Consultation with Dr. Jean-Paul Leva and Procedure Details
During your consultation with Dr. Jean-Paul Leva, we will evaluate your breasts, discussing size, volume, and shape. We'll talk about any excess tissue, discuss whether your nipples point downward, and determine the best way to improve your breast volume and appearance. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and takes about two to three hours to complete.
After the procedure, you will need to take proper care of your breasts to support the healing process. This includes wearing a special bra to maintain the new breast shape and avoiding strenuous activity and heavy lifting for a few weeks. Swelling is common but should decrease over time. We will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions, which will include how to manage the incisions to help them heal.
Considerations and Next Steps
If you're on the fence about breast lift surgery or interested in other options such as breast implant or lift without implants, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our expert team to discuss your options. We can also discuss the cost and what to expect post-surgery. Remember, changes in body weight, pregnancy, and years can lead to sagging and loss of volume, but a breast lift can restore your breasts to a more natural and youthful look.
