A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is surgery to raise the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift can reduce the size of this area as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:
- Weight fluctuations
Breast Lift Consultation
When considering a breast lift, or any cosmetic surgery procedure for that matter, we recommend that you consult a qualified medical provider with experience in breast lift surgery. In Denver, Dr. Serota has extensive training and experience in this field and has helped many patients achieve a more youthful appearance with a breast lift.
When consulting with Dr. Serota, it is important to discuss the specific changes you would like to make to your appearance and how a breast lift will affect such an enhancement goal. As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, the decision to have a breast lift is a highly personal one. Properly researching the procedure, viewing numerous before and after photos, as well as openly discussing various treatment options with Dr. Serota will assist you in making a well-established decision regarding a breast lift.
During the consultation, Dr. Serota will explain the procedure and will discuss the type of anesthesia to be used during the breast lift surgery. Dr. Serota will inquire about your medical history and will perform a series of visual examinations. Dr. Serota will measure your breasts, take photographs, and may require a mammogram in an effort to accurately gauge the potential outcome of breast lift surgery. Furthermore, your surgeon will discuss the new placement of your nipples which may differ significantly in post-surgery placement based on the magnitude of the breast lift procedure.
Upon scheduling of the breast lift surgery, you will receive specific pre-surgery instructions.
How is Breast Lift Surgery Performed?
In today's cosmetic surgery environment, several breast lift techniques exist. Each patient and Dr. Serota will determine the most appropriate breast lift technique based on various factors such as the desired outcome, the patient's pre-operative state and the surgeon's preference based on their knowledge and experience.
If you are considering a breast lift it is important to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. As a rule of thumb, the most appropriate candidates for breast lift surgery are over eighteen years of age, possess a skin type that has a degree of elasticity, are not pregnant or breast feeding and are in good health.
