Breast Lift Bloomfield
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, which is also called a mastopexy, is a type of plastic surgery designed to remove excess skin and tissue from the breasts to improve the appearance due to sagging or lost volume.
A breast lift is most commonly requested by women that have lost the tone of their breasts to a sagging appearance. They may be happy with the size of their breasts but unhappy about the location with a typical downward look to the nipples. Dr. Felice describes the surgical procedure as creating a new skin brassiere.
Breast lift procedures have gone through an evolution in the past few years. Dr. Felice uses the shortest incision possible and shapes the breast so that the upper, inner and outer poles of the breast are full.
Other techniques are used to help prevent “bottoming out” of the breasts over time. Every effort is made to eliminate the old scars along the bottom of the breast extending toward the breast bone (sternum) and outer chest wall.
What to expect during a Breast Lift consultation?
During your plastic surgery consultation for a breast lift at Youthful Images of Connecticut, Dr. Felice will review your medical history, examine your breasts, discuss your expectations, review the breast lift procedure, discuss the recovery period, review other patient photographs and take your picture so that he can review with you the plans he has for your new look.
Finally, he will discuss the cost of the procedure. In addition, Dr. Felice’s office accepts several different financing options if that may be of interest to you.
Expected Recovery Time for a Breast Lift
The approximate recovery time for a breast lift is about seven days. You should expect some bruising, pain, and swelling after your breast lift; however, this is normal and will typically subside in a few weeks. Dr. Felice may prescribe medication to help you deal with the pain.
A sports bra is worn for three weeks postoperatively. It is also important to limit strenuous activity during the first couple weeks after your breast lift. If you have any questions about when you can resume your normal daily activities, ask Dr. Felice, and be sure follow all of his aftercare instructions so the recovery process goes as smoothly as possible.
You will see results from your breast lift right away; however, your breasts will continue to settle over the next few months. Typically, you will see the final results within a few months after your procedure.
