What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure aimed at correcting sagging breasts by lifting and reshaping them to a more youthful position.

This procedure involves removing excess skin, tightening the breast tissue, and repositioning the nipples to create a firmer, more lifted appearance. Dr. Gartner will work closely with you to understand your goals and customize the procedure to meet your unique needs.

Ideal Candidates for a Breast Lift

Ideal candidates for a breast lift generally include individuals who:

  • Have Sagging Breasts: Candidates should have breasts that have lost elasticity and firmness, resulting in sagging or drooping.
  • Experience Nipple Asymmetry or Positioning: Candidates with nipples that point downward or have migrated lower on the breast may benefit from a breast lift.
  • Are in Good Overall Health: Candidates should be in good physical and mental health to undergo surgery successfully.
  • Have Realistic Expectations: It is important to have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure and understand the associated recovery process.

Techniques Used in Breast Lifts

Dr. Gartner utilizes various surgical techniques to perform breast lifts, depending on the degree of sagging and desired outcome. The commonly employed techniques include:

  • Anchor or Inverted-T Technique: This technique involves creating an incision around the areola, extending vertically down to the breast crease, and sometimes horizontally along the crease. It is suitable for more extensive breast lifting and reshaping.
  • Lollipop or Vertical Technique: With this technique, an incision is made around the areola and extends vertically down to the breast crease. It is suitable for moderate sagging and offers a more limited incision pattern.
  • Donut or Periareolar Technique: This technique involves making an incision around the areola only. It is suitable for patients with minimal sagging and offers the advantage of a shorter scar.

Benefits of a Breast Lift

A breast lift can provide numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved Breast Contours: By lifting and reshaping sagging breasts, a breast lift can restore a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing breast shape.
  • Enhanced Breast Symmetry: A breast lift can address breast asymmetry and create a more balanced appearance.
  • Restored Nipple Position: The procedure can reposition the nipples to a higher, more youthful location on the breast mound.
  • Increased Clothing Options: With lifted and firmer breasts, you can enjoy a wider range of clothing options and feel more confident in your appearance.
  • Boost in Self-esteem: Restoring the shape and position of your breasts can have a positive impact on your self-image and overall self-confidence.

FAQs About Breast Lift Surgery

Will a Breast Lift Increase My Breast Size?

A breast lift is primarily focused on lifting and reshaping sagging breasts to a more youthful position. While some patients may experience a slight increase in breast size due to the repositioning of the breast tissue, a breast lift alone does not significantly change breast size. If you desire both a lift and an increase in breast size, a breast augmentation procedure can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift to achieve your desired outcome.

Can a Breast Lift Be Combined with Breast Augmentation?

Yes, a breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation if you desire both a lift and an increase in breast volume. This combination procedure is commonly referred to as an augmentation mastopexy. It allows for addressing both sagging and volume loss, resulting in lifted, fuller breasts. Dr. Gartner will evaluate your specific goals and anatomy to determine if a combined procedure is suitable for you.

How Long Do the Results of a Breast Lift Last?

The results of a breast lift are long-lasting, but it’s important to note that the natural aging process and other factors, such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and genetics, can still affect the appearance of your breasts over time. While a breast lift can provide significant improvement, the effects of gravity and aging will continue. Maintaining a stable weight, following a healthy lifestyle, and wearing supportive bras can help prolong the results of your breast lift.

Will a Breast Lift Leave Visible Scars?

Breast lift surgery involves incisions, and as a result, some scarring is inevitable. However, Dr. Gartner employs advanced surgical techniques to minimize scarring and places incisions strategically to ensure they are as discreet as possible. Over time, scars typically fade and become less noticeable. Dr. Gartner will provide detailed post-operative instructions on scar care to help promote optimal healing.

Can I Breastfeed After Having a Breast Lift?

While it is generally possible to breastfeed after a breast lift, it’s important to note that the ability to breastfeed can be influenced by various factors, including the extent of the lift, the surgical technique used, and individual anatomy. If you are planning to have children in the future, it’s advisable to discuss your breastfeeding goals with Dr. Gartner during your mommy makeover consultation. He can provide personalized advice based on your specific circumstances.

Can a Breast Lift Be Added to My Mommy Makeover?

Absolutely! A breast lift can be seamlessly incorporated into your mommy makeover. By combining breast lift surgery with other procedures like tummy tuck or liposuction, we can address both the changes in breast position and shape that often occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Gartner will assess your unique needs and aesthetic goals during your consultation to determine the best treatment plan for you. Together, we can restore youthful contours and enhance your overall body rejuvenation.
