Breast Lift Salt Lake City & Bountiful UT
What is Breast Lift?
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is designed to lift, reshape, and firm up a sagging breast. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss and aging can all have an impact on breasts causing them to lose elasticity and firmness. This result is a breast that has lost its youthful shape. The mastopexy is designed to correct this problem. Dr. Larry Sargent now offers Breast Lifts to the Salt Lake City and Bountiful, Utah after years of experience.
A breast lift is for women who wish to improve the shape and position of their breasts. You would be a candidate for a breast lift if you have:
- Sagging or pendulous breasts
- Lost firmness with skin elasticity
- Nipple position is too low-below crease of breast
- Nipple pointing downward or significantly enlarged areola
Do I Need Breast Implants With My Lift?
While the breast lift raises the breast and improves shape it does not increase volume. Loss of volume of your breasts is commonly associated with sagging. You may be a candidate to have implants placed at the time of your breast lift. This can effectively restore volume as well as further enhance breast shape.
What Type of Lift Do I Need?
Breast lifts are individualized using different incision patterns. This is based on:
- Breast size and shape
- Position and size of areola
- Degree of sagging
- Amount of excess skin
The most common incisions or patterns used for a breast lift are:
- Around the areola
- Around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease
- Around the areola, down to the crease, and horizontally in the crease of the breast
The more severe the sagging and the lower nipple positions require more incision to restore a youthful appearance.
After your procedure, you will either be in a bandage or a support bra. Bruising and swelling are to be expected and will resolve in several weeks. Pain medication may be needed the first several days. Your full results won’t be apparent until 4-6 weeks. Heavy exercising and lifting should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.
