A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is quickly outpacing breast augmentation as the preferred procedure to change the shape and contour of the breast. Without changing the breast size or increasing the fullness, a breast lift raises the breast to a more youthful height by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to improve firmness in order to reshape and support the new breast contour. You will notice immediate transformation, with the final results occurring over the next few months as shape and position continue to settle.
After the procedure, you will experience rest for a few days with healing taking up to a couple of weeks. A breast lift produces long-lasting results with the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle and consistent weight, with some change occurring with age. You should only consider a breast lift after your childbearing years have passed as pregnancy and the ensuing hormones will change, and potentially reverse, the procedure. Dr. Atchison will walk you through the procedure, as well as give you all the details necessary for you to determine if a breast lift is right for you.
