Over time, and due to numerous factors, breast skin can become lax, and breast volume can be lost, causing breasts to lose their firm tone and youthful position. For women in Seattle, breast lift surgery (mastopexy) with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jonov of The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery can address these issues and restore a more youthful appearance. Good candidates for breast lift surgery are often happy with their breast size but want to address issues of drooping caused by breast-feeding, weight loss, or age. Breast lift surgery in Seattle removes excess breast skin and repositions the nipple to a higher, more youthful position.
Breast lift surgeries vary greatly, depending upon the extent and type of correction desired. For those with a very low degree of droop, a minimally invasive breast lift can be performed using a crescent-shaped incision along the top of the areola. More extensive drooping will require other incision options, including an incision around the circumference of the areola, a vertical incision, or an anchor-shaped incision, which offers the greatest degree of lift. Breast lift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation, for added volume and fullness to the upper breast, or breast reduction. With a range of techniques, our surgeons can offer women the surgical options to best accomplish their goals.
At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, Seattle, breast lift procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art facility. Patients typically return home the day of the surgery wearing a compression bra for support. Pain is generally minimal to moderate and well-managed with a pain pump as well as oral pain medication to control discomfort. Most pain subsides by the end of the first week, and many normal activities can be resumed. Full activity can generally resume within 3-4 weeks, though recovery periods vary from patient to patient.
Breast lift surgery offers a high degree of patient satisfaction, with many women reporting great improvement in how their breasts look and feel.
