It’s not uncommon for breasts to sag as a result of gravity, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, nursing, and even the natural process of aging. A Houston, TX plastic surgeon like Dr. Thomas Wiener can help to correct this issue with a procedure known as the breast lift.
What is a breast lift?
The breast lift is best described as a surgical procedure involving making incisions around the areola and along the breast’s natural crease, repositioning the nipple and areola, and removing excess skin. Sometimes, the surgeon performing this surgery may insert breast implants to restore lost volume. The type of surgical incision used will depend on the size and shape of your breasts and your surgery goals.
Why might I consider a breast lift?
A breast lift can give you back youthful, perky breasts. It can also improve your self-esteem and make you feel more confident in your appearance when wearing more revealing clothing or spending intimate time with your partner. Women who are self-conscious about their appearance can speak to our team to determine if they are a good candidate for this or other breast augmentation procedures available.
What can I expect from my breast lift procedure?
Most breast lift procedures are performed as outpatient surgeries. This means that you can return home the same day as your surgery. However, you can expect some discomfort and swelling after your surgery, but this can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. Most women take approximately two weeks before feeling well enough to return to their normal activities. Your experience may vary, but it is still important to talk to Dr. Thomas Wiener about arrangements you need to make to ensure the healing process goes smoothly.
