Breast Lift Information Bluffton

Typically far less invasive than breast augmentation, a breast lift or mastopexy, is an affordable solution to sagging breasts caused by either weight loss or child birth and one which generally produces entirely natural-looking results. Women with adequate breast mass are good candidates for this procedure as the simple lifting process will generally suffice in correcting pendulous breasts without the use of saline or silicone implants for added breast fullness.

In instances in which adequate breast mass is not possessed, patients can opt to have saline or silicone implants of the desired size, inserted during the lifting and re-contouring portions of the procedure. Without the use of saline or silicone implants, this cosmetic procedure is incapable of producing dramatic increases in size and is instead used to restore firmness, fullness and proper elevation to the existing breast tissue.While this surgery can be performed at nearly any age, it is generally recommended that the patient delay this procedure until breast development is complete. The milk ducts and nipples are not significantly impacted by this surgery and remain intact, thus, the patient will most likely be able to breastfeed after a mastopexy or breast lift has been performed.

During the initial consultation the doctor will evaluate many things including the placement of the areolas and nipples as well as the skin quality, texture and tone and the shape and size of the patient’s breasts. The surgical plan will be based upon the patient’s personal preferences and the best lifting and restructuring techniques for accomplishing these results.
