Volume loss and breast sagging are a natural part of aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. Dr. Weider performs breast lifts for those in Dallas, TX who want to restore the youthful shape and position of their breasts.
A breast lift is a surgical procedure to address breast sagging and loose breast skin. Dr. Weider’s extensive experience allows him to minimize the appearance of scars following breast lift surgery. His goal is to provide an optimal lift through the least invasive method possible. Dr. Weider is also highly skilled in performing breast lift and breast augmentation simultaneously. During your consultation with Dr. Weider, you will learn about all aspects of the breast lift procedure, including:
- Breast anatomy, including size, shape, skin quality and consistency of breast tissue and glandular fat
- Location and shape of your nipples
- The degree of breast sagging and asymmetry between the breasts
- Facility choices such as our fully accredited facility or an affiliated hospital
- Guidelines to follow to reduce the risk of complications after breast lift
- Costs for surgery such as surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, and facility fees
A breast lift is one of the most commonly requested breast enhancement surgeries performed at Weider Plastic Surgery in Dallas. Women interested in a breast lift seek out the procedure to enhance the appearance of their breasts in one or more ways, including:
- Improving loss of breast volume from pregnancy or nursing
- Improving signs of aging breasts
- Improving changes that have occurred due to weight loss or gain
- Improving loss of elasticity
- Improving sagging, shape, and firmness
A breast lift can effectively restore the natural position of the breasts, raising them to sit higher on the chest as well as restore the natural position of the nipples. However, the breast lift will not increase the size of your breasts. If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts, you may consider adding a breast augmentation to improve fullness. If you are receiving a breast reduction to achieve smaller, more proportionate breasts, a lift will be included to address excess skin.
Dr. Weider performs breast lifts to improve breast sagging, breast asymmetry, and misshapen breasts. The breast lift procedure requires about three hours of time. During surgery, Dr. Weider will make incisions at key locations to perform the lift. The number and length of the incisions are related to the extent of breast sagging. Most women are candidates for the technique that requires an incision made around the areolae.
When breast implants are being placed simultaneously, Dr. Weider will dissect the breast pocket and properly position the breast implants. He will then lift and reshape the breasts. The nipples remain attached to blood vessels and nerves in order to preserve sensation. In most instances, the nipple size and shape may be improved to better fit the newly shaped breasts.
Dr. Weider will see you during the recovery period to help ensure an optimal result. Within a few days following breast lift surgery, many of our patients feel like returning to most of their normal activities, but may still refrain from work for five days or so. Dr. Weider will prescribe medication to ease discomfort during the recovery period. You may experience swelling and numbness following surgery, which subside over time. Dr. Weider will provide a list of guidelines to minimize the risk of complications, including no overhead lifting and refraining from various activities.
Patients typically see their final results within six to twelve weeks. Many patients report the improvement in their appearance has boosted their self-esteem. Breast lift results may change over time, depending upon aging, weight changes, and pregnancy. Scars will fade in time.
