What Is a Breast Lift?
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift is a surgical procedure that lifts and restores the youthful shape of your breasts. As we age, the constant pull of gravity can transform breasts and diminish firmness. This can cause the nipple to shift downward and the upper portion of the breast to lose volume as breast tissue begins to sag.
A breast lift corrects these unwanted effects of aging by reshaping the breast so that the nipple returns to a higher position and the breast achieves a more youthful shape.
The Breast Lift Surgery Procedure
Breast lift surgery can last for an hour or longer, depending on your needs. There are several variations of breast lift procedure, involving different incision methods. Over the course of his career, breast lift surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel has developed a blended surgical approach to breast lifts that incorporates different techniques to achieve the most effective results. His hybrid methodology gives your breasts exceptional support, a beautiful shape and long-lasting results.
In the day or two following your procedure, you can expect your breasts to be discolored, irritated and moderately painful, but the discomfort should not be intense and medication offers substantial relief. You should plan to take about a week off from work, and refrain from any strenuous exercise or sports for approximately one month.
Dr. Zwiebel will give you detailed instructions for a successful recovery, and will call you personally after your surgery to check on your condition and comfort.
Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation?
For breasts that are small or have lost volume, breast implants may suffice to restore a youthful appearance. However, an implant cannot correct sagging issues. In cases of significant sagging, a breast lift is the appropriate solution. In some cases, the best results are achieved by combing the procedures, using breast implants to help restore lost volume and a breast lift to restore the breast’s shape.
