Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
When you catch a glimpse of your full-length profile in the mirror, do you think about how you might look after a breast lift in Boca Raton?
Many women feel that sagging breasts give an aging, frumpy look to their figure – a look they want to correct. Breast lift surgery, known medically as mastopexy, can benefit women whose breasts have descended due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. It can also be a good choice for those whose skin tone simply did not support their breasts well as the years passed or for women who have lost a significant amount of weight. Women who have seen their areolas grow and become misshapen over time are often delighted to learn that they can have a pleasing nipple-areola appearance again after the procedure.
Instead of lamenting your shape next time you turn sideways at the mirror, request a FREE consultation to discuss a breast lift in Boca Raton with Dr. Steven Schuster or Dr. Daniel Kovacs. They understand that your self-image is a key factor in how you feel about your life. They will take time to listen and learn about your needs, then help you learn about the procedure and decide whether it\'s the right choice for you.
The Basics – Breast Lift in Boca Raton
At Schuster Plastic Surgery, breast surgery will be designed just for you. Dr. Schuster or Dr. Kovacs will make the incisions required to create the result you have discussed; most likely around the areolas and in some cases straight down, but rarely under the breast. They'll position your nipples and areolas higher on your breasts, remove excess skin and close the incisions with fine sutures using a short-scar technique.
For some women, especially those who have a post-pregnancy "deflated" appearance, our surgeons may recommend a breast lift with implants in addition to performing a mastopexy. This combination of breast augmentation and lift is popular with moms looking to restore their figures after childbirth. For women whose large breasts have contributed to sagging, Dr. Schuster or Dr. Kovacs may want to discuss the possibility of breast reduction combined with a lift.
Your Procedure, Your New Look
Breast lift surgery in Boca Raton normally takes two to three hours. It's usually performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Many women choose breast augmentation in Boca Raton in addition to their lift procedure to achieve a complete breast makeover. You'll return home after your surgery with light dressings over your incisions and a special bra to wear for support for two to three weeks. Most women find they can control postoperative discomfort easily with oral medication and begin to resume light work and non-strenuous activities in seven to ten days.
Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs devote time and energy to ongoing education to add to their medical school training and many years of surgical residency and fellowship training. Dr. Schuster also serves on the clinical faculty of the University of Miami School of Medicine, Division of Plastic Surgery teaching plastic surgeons in-training his techniques, while Dr. Kovacs is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Surgery at Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine. They can recreate an attractive breast contour for you and elevate your breasts to a more youthful position. If you're like most of our patients, you'll be selecting form-fitting clothing again and you'll be pleased next time you happen to notice your profile in the mirror.
The Doctors Answer Your Questions
You're likely to have many questions when you come in to meet with us. We'll take all the time you need to evaluate your breasts and discuss your options with you. Until then, here are answers to questions many women have about breast lift surgery in Boca Raton.
How long with the results last?
There's no stopping the normal processes of aging and gravity, unfortunately. Your breasts will continue to change along with the rest of your body. But as long as you maintain your weight and live a healthy lifestyle, the results of your mastopexy should last for several years.
Will my breasts really look like they did when I was younger?
While there's no absolute guarantee with any surgical procedure and you may not look exactly like you did years ago, most women are quite satisfied with their outcome.
Will my nipples lose sensation?
Most women find they retain nipple sensation after the recovery period. There is a slight risk of decreased nipple sensation with the breast lift procedure. Other procedures to consider:
