Breast Lift


A woman’s breasts can change over time due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and aging. This can result in the breasts losing their shape and firmness, making a woman feel insecure. At the Thompson Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Thompson can perform breast lift surgery by eliminating excess skin and tightening supportive tissue to bring back a natural and youthful breast appearance.

What Do You Desire?

Youthful Breasts


Aging and significant weight loss can cause the breast skin to lose elasticity. When this occurs, it can make the breasts look saggy and deflated as well as compromise their overall shape and appearance. Breast lift surgery can elevate a your breasts to restore a more youthful bustline.

Enhanced Figure


Many women undergo breast lift surgery because pregnancy or breastfeeding have altered the size and shape of their breasts. Those who wish to rejuvenate their figure for a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted can look into getting breast lift surgery.

Smaller, Perkier Nipples


Some women may struggle with enlarged areolas (the skin around the nipples) or nipples that point downward. Breast lift surgery can correct overly large areolas and elevate the nipples to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Your Breast Lift Consultation


Your consultation is essential for a successful breast lift surgery. To ensure your procedure provides custom results that highlight your bustline, Dr. Thompson will examine your breasts and take detailed measurements of their size and shape as well as your skin quality and nipple and areola placement.

Your Breast Lift Procedure


Incisions

Your breast lift procedure will be performed using one of various incision techniques, which will be determined based on your desired aesthetic goals and degree of breast sagging. Incisions will either be done around the areola (periareolar), around the areola and down to the breast crease (lollipop), or around the areola, down the breast, and horizontally along the breast crease (anchor).

Combinations

Breast lift surgery can be combined with other plastic surgery procedures to achieve maximum results, including:

Recovery

After a breast lift, it is common to experience swelling and bruising during the initial healing process. Medications should be taken as instructed to alleviate discomfort and minimize the risk of infection. An elastic bandage will likely need to be worn during the first few days. This will be replaced by a soft support garment worn around the clock for the next several weeks.

You can expect to resume light activity and work within one or two weeks after breast lift surgery. Any numbness, which may occur, will typically fade within six weeks. It is best to avoid strenuous physical activity until approximately six weeks after your surgery, or when Dr. Thompson has given permission.
