A breast lift, referred to in medical terms as a mastopexy, is used to describe a range of procedures for patients with different problems. A breast lift can be anything from a small lift of the nipple to a raise and reshaping of sagging, aging breasts. Sagging is a natural result of aging, although it is exacerbated by pregnancy, breast feeding, decrease in skin elasticity and weight loss. Unlike breast augmentation or reconstruction, a mastopexy does not change the volume of the breast. Instead, the procedure is a reshaping or lifting of existing volume to create a younger, attractive look with better shape.
Stuart Florida Breast Lift Specialist P. Dudley Giles is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Who Focuses His Practice Exclusively on Cosmetic Surgery Procedures of the Breast & Body.
During your consultation with South Florida plastic surgeon P. Dudley Giles, you will want to provide a detailed description of what it is you expect from the procedure. This is to ensure you are as satisfied as possible with the results of the surgery.
Dr. Giles is a highly skilled plastic surgeon and has performed many South Florida breast lift surgeries. This procedure can be done using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with heavy sedation. The breast operation can raise and reshape sagging breasts, but can also be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation if you wish. Most women leave the hospital the same day as the procedure. No breast tissue is removed in a mastopexy, so the volume of your breasts will remain the same, however they may appear larger due to the tightening of the skin.
The ideal candidate for mastopexy surgery is a woman suffering from ptosis (sagging breast) typically wishing to restore a youthful appearance. If you are planning on having children in the near future, you may wish to delay the procedure until after pregnancy and you are done breast feeding.
The best candidates for the procedure are women who are also both physically and emotionally stable. It is important to have realistic expectations from the procedure, and thus essential you gain a thorough understanding of the process beforehand.
