What is it?
Considering a breast lift in Ft Myers? Contact Dr. Audrey Farahmand female, board-certified plastic surgeon. This is technically referred to as mastopexy. Overtime, women’s breasts lose elasticity with gravity, age, and following pregnancy. This produces a sagging appearance to the breasts and a lowering of the nipple. To correct this process, a mastopexy (a.k.a. breast lift) is performed to remove excess skin, reposition the nipple, and increase the fullness of the breast. Mastopexy can be performed with or without an implant. The incisions are around the areola, below the areola in a vertical line between the areola and the breast fold, and a small horizontal incision in the breast fold. Women who need only minimal lifting may be candidates for minimal scar techniques such as “doughnut mastopexy” where the scar is placed only around the areola or “crescent mastopexy” where the scar is placed around the areola only around the top half of the areola.
The length of the recovery period after breast lifting depends on whether an implant is used or not. Generally, patients are required to avoid heavy lifting and repetitive arm movements after surgery for several weeks. Many go back to work after 4-5 days depending on the type of work duties they have.
