If you are considering a Breast Lift
A breast lift is a great option for women who want to improve breast shape and position. If an increase in size is wanted you may also want to consider breast implants along with a breast lift.
The best candidates for breast reconstruction
Women who are at a stable weight, whose breasts are fully developed and are done having children. A breast lift is an option for younger women also and is most commonly done to correct disymmetry or uneven breasts according to http://www.imagebydesignmd.com.
All surgery carries some uncertainty and risk
Breast Lift surgery is relatively straightforward. But as with any operation, there are risks associated with surgery and specific complications associated with this procedure.
Planning your surgery
Make sure you and your plastic surgeon understand what YOU want and that he/she can deliver.
Where your surgery will be performed
Your surgery will be preformed at a surgical center where there are board certified anesthesiologists.
Types of anesthesia
You will go under general anesthesia so you will sleep during the entire procedure.
There are several types of breast lifts, at your consultation your plastic surgeon will discuss the different types and will determine which lift is going to be right for you. One of the most common patterns for a breast lift is to make an incision around the areola and vertically down the breast. Some women will also require a horizontal incision along your breast crease. Once the excess skin is removed, the breast tissue is lifted and reshaped. As Dr. Melek Kayser of Image By Design Plastic Surgery is closing your incisions the remaining skin is tightened. All of your stitches will be internal and will dissolve within a few months. You will have tape covering your incisions for extra support, the tape will fall off about 3-4 weeks after surgery.
After your surgery
We recommend taking one week off of work or school, depending on what type of work you do.
