The 22 Plastic Surgery Difference
Your breast lift procedure begins with your surgeon making the incisions. They use multiple types of incisions, including circumareolar, anchor, and what’s known as a “lollipop incision,” which encircles the areola and descends vertically down the breast. This allows them to remove excess tissue and skin, and lift and reshape the breast. We often reduces enlarged areolas at the same time to match the more youthful contours of the breasts.
For some women who wish to increase the size of their breasts, we may perform this procedure in conjunction with breast augmentation.
What to Expect Afterward
Your surgeon will bandage your chest and wrap it in a compression garment after your procedure. This will allow your breasts to retain their newly youthful appearance. While experiences vary, most women will need to take about a week off of work. After this time, patients commonly resume their daily routines. However, your surgeon will likely advise you to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for several weeks.
