According to the figures published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lift currently ranks among the top five cosmetic surgery procedures in the US. The demand for breast lift is on the rise because many women now prefer to have more subtle breast shape enhancement and want to achieve more natural looking outcomes and appearances.
Moms who want to restore their pre-pregnancy look also choose breast lift to appear more sensuous and feel more confident about their body. Breast lift is sometimes combined with breast augmentation surgery to create more effective results.
The surgeon will explain about breast lift to the patient during the initial consultation. Sagacious and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides breast lift to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding locations in The Mother of Presidents.
A candidate for breast lift should have a good general health to sustain the surgery and anesthesia. She would typically be bothered by the appearance of sagging breasts and downward pointing nipples. Breast tissue laxity and loss of breast volume may occur in such candidates due to aging, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or heredity factors.
The woman should ideally be above the age of 18, and have stable and moderate body weight. She should not be pregnant or nursing, and should have no near-term plans for a pregnancy. She should be a non-smoker or be committed to quit smoking for a time period specified by the surgeon.
Standard Breast Lift
In this cosmetic surgery technique, an anchor shaped incision will be created, including an incision around the areola, and another one going vertically down to the breast base. The surgeon will create a third incision horizontally along the breast crease. With this traditional breast lift surgery, it is possible to significantly reduce sagginess from the lower half of the breast.
Doughnut Breast Lift
In comparison to a standard breast lift, this technique does not involve significant skin reduction. Downtime is reduced and scarring is minimal. The surgeon will create a circumferential incision around the areola to remove a limited amount of tissue. The technique is well-suited for women with smaller sized breasts. Areola reshaping may also be included as part of this procedure.
Lollipop Breast Lift
This vertical breast lift technique falls somewhere in-between a doughnut breast lift and a standard lift. The surgeon will place an incision in the areola border, and another small incision will be created vertically down to the breast crease. This technique can help produce a moderate degree of lift to the breast tissue.
Breast lift surgery will usually involve a downtime of about one week. The patient is likely to go through mild pain and soreness in the incision sites in the first week, but it can be managed with prescription pain meds. To ensure that the breast tissue acquires its new shape and position, the patient will be required to wear a surgical bra for a few weeks.
