Breast Lift: Rejuvenate and Elevate

A breast lift usually won't change your breasts' cup size or volume; however, a lift can be paired with an augmentation or breast reduction to achieve your desired figure.

You might choose to have a breast lift if your breasts sag or your nipples point downward. Once completed and healed, a breast lift should boost your body positivity, image, and self-confidence.

Preparing for Surgery

To realize the most elegant and refined results, prospective patients should do their best to prepare for their procedure with Dr. Meade and manage their aftercare ahead of time. 

Dr. Meade will usually ask the following of his patients:

  • To undergo further medical evaluation and laboratory testing
  • To adjust or completely abstain from specific prescribed medication and dietary
  • supplements
  • To cease smoking and the consumption of alcohol and drugs
  • To make sure they are well-hydrated, especially in the days before their procedure 

The Breast Lift Procedure

There are a variety of surgical techniques to choose from, and Dr. Meade will explain what is involved with each option during your initial consultation. He and his team will also check in with you throughout your healing process and answer any of your questions or concerns.

Your Breast Lift Recovery and Results

After a breast lift, you can expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Your skin may feel tight as the results settle in. These symptoms will soon disappear and usually only last about two weeks. If you have drains placed near the incisions, Dr. Meade's team will remove them a few days after the procedure.

Women can usually enjoy their breast lift results for about 10 to 15 years, though some patients can go much longer before a revision is needed, if at all.

Can A Breast Lift Give Me Cleavage?

It depends on the patient, although 'cleavage' is often achieved with the addition of implants. Breast lift surgery is often paired with breast augmentation to enhance your cleavage, improve symmetry, and add volume to the chest.

That said, a breast lift alone does offer remarkable results for most women, elevating how they feel about themselves. Often, this directly translates to how they move and appear in the world and the space they occupy.

What Are The Possible Side Effects And Risks Of A Breast Lift?

While mastopexy is a relatively low-risk procedure, patients may experience:

  • Bleeding until the wounds are fully healed 
  • Infection at the wound sites 
  • Seroma or hematoma (inflammatory fluid)
  • Light scarring 
  • Poor healing of incisions 
  • Temporary loss of breast or nipple sensitivity 
  • Temporary uneven size or shape of breasts 
  • Blood clots 
  • In very rare cases, the need for a revision surgery

Will My Breasts Sag Again After My Breast Lift?

Remember that a breast lift does not slow the aging process. Eventually, the breasts will drop years after a breast lift simply because the aging process has continued, with the skin naturally losing its elasticity.

When Will I Be Able To Return To Work After My Breast Lift?

Patients typically are off work for a minimum of 3 to 7 days. Usually, there are no restrictions after three weeks post-op. It's important to know that it usually takes 6 to 12 weeks for your breasts to achieve their final shape.
