What is a Breast Lift?
A Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is the ideal option for women with drooping breasts as a result of factors like aging. Female breast ptosis or sagging is a natural consequence of aging. The rate at which a woman’s breasts droop and the degree of ptosis depends on many factors. The key factors of breast ptosis over a woman’s lifetime include: cigarette smoking; her number of pregnancies; gravity; higher body mass index; larger bra cup size; and significant weight gain and loss. Post-menopausal women may also experience increased ptosis due to a loss of skin elasticity.
The breast lift procedure eliminates sagging breasts by reshaping the breast mound, tightening the skin and repositioning the nipple to give your breasts a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Lytle may combine the breast lift with breast augmentation, depending on your situation.
Breast Lift Candidates
There are many reasons women seek the breast lift procedure, including:
- Stretched breast skin
- Enlarged areolas
- Breasts that are elongated or low
- Nipples that point down
Women who have one or more of these issues may be candidates for a breast lift. Women with small breasts or large breasts who are in good health are possible candidates for the breast lift.
Having realistic expectations is another important factor in determining breast lift candidacy. While it is important that you feel comfortable with the way your breasts look after the breast lift, you should be doing it for yourself and not for anyone else. Also, because of the aging of breast skin and gravity, a breast lift will not permanently change your breasts. Firmness and shape will be change for the better for a very long time, but you may need to undergo another breast lift in the future to keep gravity and age at bay.
Breast Lift Consultation
During a consultation for a breast lift procedure, your medical history will be discussed, including previous surgeries and any medications currently being taken. This will help ensure that breast lift surgery is right for you.
The doctor will address expectations and any concerns regarding the procedure. There will also be an examination of the breasts to take measurements. Finally, Dr. Lytle will formulate the best surgical plan for your case and then set a date for the surgery.
Breast Lift vs Breast Augmentation
In general, if you are happy with the volume of your breasts in a bra, but not the shape, a breast lift will likely be the procedure of choice. If your breasts are too small, however, a breast augmentation will be needed. Dr. Lytle can let you know if a breast lift with implants is the right procedure for you.
The Breast Lift Procedure
A breast lift procedure will start with general anesthesia being administered to the patient. Next, based on the patient’s breast size, shape, and position, a suitable incision pattern will be used.
After the incision, the breasts will be reshaped and lifted to improve contours. Any excess skin will be removed to address sagging, and any shape asymmetries can also be addressed. If enlarged, the areola can be addressed with the breast lift procedure. It may also be repositioned for a balanced look.
Once the breasts have been properly lifted and have been given the desired shape and firmness, the remaining breast skin will be tightened and the incisions will be closed.
Breast Lift Recovery
There will be some bruising and swelling around the breasts following your breast lift procedure in Detroit. A compression garment will need to be worn during your recovery to provide additional support. patients typically need around two weeks to recover from their breast lift.
