Breast Lift Surgery in San Francisco
A decrease in breast volume and drooping or sagging of the breasts can pose problems for many patients. Many times, these changes are brought on by childbirth, breastfeeding, or substantial weight loss. To restore a natural-looking and youthful silhouette, a breast lift (mastopexy) can be performed. Patients who choose to have their breast lift performed by one of the specialists at Wave Plastic Surgery can look forward to long-lasting results that improve their appearance, self-image, and confidence.
Breast Lift Procedure
The goal of a breast lift is to elevate the nipple and areola to a natural and youthful position just at the level of the breast fold. The amount of lift and the length of the incisions that are required to produce excellent results is determined by carefully analyzing the amount of volume loss, drooping, and/or sagging. A typical breast lift incision is made around the nipple and down toward the crease that is located just below the breast. Incisions are always hidden in natural creases along the edges of the areola. Postsurgical scars gradually fade and flatten out in a short period of time and are not noticeable. Patients who undergo the procedure do not have to worry about changing the type of clothing they wear to hide their scars.
Breast Lift with Augmentation
Many patients who have breast drooping or sagging also complain that their breasts look flat and deflated. This condition can be easily treated using a combined breast lift and augmentation procedure. The lift portion of the procedure returns the breasts to a younger and elevated position. The augmentation portion of the procedure restores volume. Implants of the patient’s choosing are carefully placed and secured above or below the pectoral muscles.
The best way for patients to determine if they are a good candidate for a breast lift or breast lift with augmentation is to schedule a consultation with one of the specialists at Wave Plastic Surgery.
