Before & After

Your Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery procedures are performed to reshape and reposition sagging breasts. Cosmetic surgeons may also refer to this procedure as mastopexy, and it can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation

Breasts can lose their youthful position for a variety of reasons: genetics, aging, or fluctuations in body weight are some of the most common causes.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

During a consultation, Dr. Rosen can determine if you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery. Established methods are used to measure the degree of breast droop. Here is a basic guideline:

  • Mild breast droop is characterized by a nipple that is level with the breast crease.
  • Moderate breast droop would be characterized by a nipple that is below the breast crease.
  • Severe breast droop is identified by a nipple that is the lowest point of the breast and positioned down.

The Ideal Breast Lift Candidate

If your breasts no longer exhibit a youthful position or if they have lost firmness, you are probably a good candidate for breast lift surgery in Bucks County. However, if you are planning a future pregnancy, Dr. Rosen may advise you to postpone the breast lift procedure until after childbirth. Good candidates have ceased smoking at least six weeks before surgery and have realistic expectations.

The Procedure: How Breast Lift Surgery Works

This procedure will require one to three hours of operating time. The technique used will vary depending on your degree of breast droop. With mild breast sagging, one incision can be placed around the pigmented area of the areola, where a circular section of skin is removed and the breast is reshaped.

In cases of moderate or severe sagging, three incisions are typically used: one travels around part of the areola, another travels down toward the breast crease, and a third is placed horizontally in the crease. Skin and glandular tissue is removed and the nipple is repositioned to give the breasts a more appealing shape and position.

Your Breast Lift Recovery

Expect about one to two weeks of recovery time after your breast lift with Dr. Rosen. You will need to wear a special bra for about four weeks, and your activity will be limited for about six.

During the first week, the incisions and dissolvable sutures will be covered with gauze and tape. You may experience some swelling, bruising, discomfort and changes in nipple sensation.

The breast lift scars will initially be raised, but during the following year they will fade and flatten out significantly. We’ll set up follow-up appointments to ensure that you’re healing properly.

Are There Possible Complications?

As with all cosmetic surgery procedures, patients should understand the risks involved. With a breast lift, possible complications include bleeding, infection, poor healing, unsatisfactory results, reaction to anesthesia, disrupted breastfeeding, noticeable asymmetry, and loss of sensation.
