Breast Lift in Worcester, MA
If your breasts look saggy or droopy, a breast lift may be your solution to a younger and sexier appearance. Many women choose breast lift surgery after pregnancy or simply as a result of the aging process. Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom, a board-certified and experienced plastic surgeon, provides breast lift surgery for residents of Worcester and the surrounding communities in Massachusetts at Salisbury Plastic Surgery, a modern, advanced medical facility in Worcester.
What is Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery removes loose skin from the breasts and tightens the remaining skin to lift the breast tissue and reduce or eliminate sagging and droopiness in the breasts. Many women choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery in combination with their breast lift to restore volume and fullness to sagging breasts, further rejuvenating their appearance.
What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, yields firm breasts that rejuvenate a woman’s appearance. Many women are bothered by drooping breasts that look unattractive when not supported by a bra. Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, corrects this, truly liberating and rejuvenating women. Some women elect to also combine breast augmentation surgery with the breast lift procedure to restore lost volume and fullness to sagging breasts.
How Do I Know if I Should Have a Breast Lift?
If your breasts are elongated, drooping, and sagging, with nipples pointing downward instead of out, you may be an excellent candidate for mastopexy.
Gravity combined with the aging process, weight loss, and pregnancy are all factors that contribute to sagging breasts, and a mastopexy or breast lift surgery corrects these problems. If your breasts are also small or have lost volume and fullness, you may consider having breast augmentation surgery with your breast lift to obtain optimal results.
The Breast Lift Procedure
The breast lift is a simple procedure that requires two to three tiny incisions. Loose excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is pulled taut in order to move the nipple and areola to a higher position, pointing outward. The result is a rejuvenated, perkier, and more youthful appearance of the breasts.
How Long Does it Take to Recover from a Breast Lift?
Most patients recover within a week following surgery, with the removal of dressings on the third day, at which time patients may take a shower. Surgical drains will be removed after one week, and you can resume non-strenuous activities at this time. After three weeks, most of the swelling subsides, and you can resume normal activity and mild exercise. After a few months, you will see your breasts settle into their new shape and scars begin to fade.
Can I Combine Breast Augmentation with a Breast Lift?
The combination of breast augmentation with a breast lift is a very common practice and an excellent recommendation for patients who wish to enhance and rejuvenate their breasts by adding fullness and volume as well as reducing sagging.
Will I Be Able to Breastfeed After Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery in and of itself will not prevent you from breastfeeding; however, women who want to become pregnant in the future should consider postponing breast lift surgery until after you have all your children, as future pregnancies may affect the results of your cosmetic surgery.
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost in Worcester, MA?
Each breast lift procedure is personally tailored to the individual patient and may be combined with other procedures, so the price will vary from patient to patient. Since breast lift surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure, most health insurance providers won’t pay for it. To keep breast lifts affordable for all of our patients, Salisbury Plastic Surgery offers financing and flexible payment options.
