Breast Lift Q & A

Plastic Surgery Associates of Southern Indiana

What is a breast lift or mastopexy?

The aging process can cause your breasts to sag and lose their shape over time. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that reshapes, raises, and cosmetically alters a woman’s breasts. After the procedure, women can expect firmer breasts with no excess skin and more shape.

Before the breast lift begins, you receive sedation or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Then, Dr. Wise or Dr. Weber makes an incision either around the areola, down from the nipple to the edge of the breast, or down from the breast and across the breast crease.

After making an incision, they lift underlying tissue and reposition the breast to achieve your desired look. They can also remove excess skin at this time.

Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber close the incisions, and your results are immediately visible.

Who is a good candidate for a breast lift?

Breast lifts are a good solution for women who experience loss of breast shape and firmness due to pregnancy and breastfeeding, genetic factors, aging, and weight changes.

If you find your breasts are less firm than before or you experience stretched skin in the breasts, a breast lift may help your breasts feel youthful again.

However, only those who have reasonable expectations of results should have a breast lift procedure. Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber can help you determine the best treatment for your goals.

What results can I expect from a breast lift?

While the results are immediately visible, the full effects of a breast lift will occur once swelling dies down and the incision sites heal. It may take several months for your breasts to settle into their new position.

Breast lift surgery results should be long-lasting, and Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber instruct you on how to care for your breasts properly to maintain good results. Maintaining a healthy weight is also crucial following your surgery.

Breast lifts can help women feel more comfortable in their bodies as they age. If you’re interested in this procedure or want to learn more, call now or book an appointment online to find out more about your breast lift options with Dr. Alan Wise and Dr. William Weber.
