Breasts are not immune to the aging process. As women age and go through various life changes such as pregnancy, aging and weight fluctuations, droopy breasts can occur. The good news is deflated or droopy breasts can be corrected with a breast lift. The breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure which can raise and reshape sagging breasts.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Dr. Stevens recommends a breast lift procedure for women who are in good physical health with realistic expectations for improving the appearance of sagging breasts. Women with smaller, sagging breasts often achieve more long-lasting results than women with heavy breasts. It is generally advised that surgery be postponed for women planning future pregnancies.
What to Expect After Surgery
After surgery, it is common to experience swelling and bruising during the initial healing process. Some discomfort can be expected during the first few days that can be relieved with prescription pain medication. It is also possible for numbness to occur and will typically fade within six weeks.
An elastic bandage will likely need to be worn during the first few days and then will need to be replaced by a soft support which should be worn around the clock for the next several weeks. While the resulting incision will be visible, it can typically be concealed with a bra or bathing suit and will fade with time. The scar may appear worse during the first few months before beginning to fade. A return to work and light activity can usually be expected within one or two weeks after your breast lift surgery.
