ALSO SERVING DOYLESTOWN, BUCKS COUNTY, AND MONTGOMERY COUNTY
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A BREAST LIFT?
As you age, your skin becomes less elastic. Gravity, pregnancy, and other factors can cause your breasts to sag. Even if you are healthy and fit, this can make your body appear older than you actually feel.
Dr. Chapin, a highly skilled Philadelphia, Doylestown, Bucks County, and Montgomery County breast lift surgeon, can discuss your breast lift options with you to achieve your best look.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A BREAST LIFT?
Breast lift surgery can make your breasts feel firmer and look younger by lifting and tightening the skin. Excess skin and tissue are removed; the skin that remains is brought together to form the new contour for the breast. Breast lift procedures, known medically as “mastopexy,” can also be used to reduce the size of the dark skin around the nipple, known as the areola. For women with smaller breasts, the procedure is commonly combined with breast augmentation to achieve an optimal breast shape.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A BREAST LIFT WITH AUGMENTATION?
To best address the problem of breasts that have lost volume and begun to sag, Dr. Scott Chapin offers his patients the option of breast lift with augmentation. This procedure is also known as augmentation mastopexy or breast lift with breast implants. This procedure is also popular among women who are undergoing mommy makeover surgery to enhance their appearance after pregnancy.
In this procedure, the breast tissue is lifted and tightened as in a traditional breast lift, but then an implant is inserted in order to restore volume and fullness to the breasts. Often, this combination procedure can achieve more youthful and natural-looking results than breast lift surgery alone.
During your consultation with Dr. Chapin you can review photos of breast lift surgery with and without implants and discuss your overall goals and concerns to help achieve your best look.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD FOR A BREAST LIFT?
- Breast lift without implants typically involves minimal pain.
- Usually, patients are back to work within three to five days.
- Patients can typically expect to resume exercise within one to three weeks, depending on which procedure is performed.
