What is a Breast Lift (Mastopexy)?
As a woman, Dr. Breister Ghosh understands how frustrating it is for the breasts to succumb to the natural stages of our lives. Between pregnancy, weight loss, breastfeeding, gravity, and the natural aging process, the breasts are bound to droop and sag over time. Some women may find that their breasts look deflated, that their nipples point downward, or that their cleavage is lost. A mastopexy, most commonly known as a breast lift, addresses these concerns. After a breast lift, the breasts are restored to a more youthful, perky appearance.
What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?
There are many benefits of receiving a breast lift with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
- Removes excess skin from around the breasts
- Repositions the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest
- Addresses downward-pointing nipples
- Can be performed in conjunction with other breast surgeries like breast augmentation
- Improves the comfort and fit of bras
- Boosts overall confidence
How is a Breast Lift Performed?
Your breast lift will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. The technique and incision pattern used during a breast lift depends on a variety of factors such as the size and shape of your breasts, the position of your areola, your degree of sagging, and your natural skin elasticity. Dr. Bresiter Ghosh will discuss which technique will deliver your desired results during your private consultation. During your procedure, the breast tissue will be lifted and reshaped to restore a natural firmness and improve your breasts' contour. Your nipples will also be lifted to a natural, more youthful position. Enlarged areolas may be reduced at this time if a patient desires this. Finally, any excess skin will be removed from around the breast. Breast implants can be inserted during your breast lift procedure if you wish to add more volume for a fuller look. The entirety of your breast lift may take up to three hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Breast Lift ?
Following your breast lift surgery, Dr. Breister Ghosh will fit you with a surgical bra that will help reduce swelling and promote proper healing. This surgical bra will be soft and supportive and is typically required to be worn for about four weeks following surgery. Dr. Breister Ghosh will likely suggest you refrain from vigorous physical activity throughout your recovery process. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for about one to two weeks off work.
How Much Will My Breast Lift Cost?
The cost of your breast lift will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
