One of the most common concerns we hear from our patients is the drooping or sagging that begins to affect their breasts over time. Whether it’s due to the natural effects of age, or brought on by the impact of pregnancy or weight loss, experiencing these changes to your breasts can cause you to feel older or less confident in your appearance. A breast lift can help to renew your figure and give you back that youthful, feminine perk for your body.
What is a breast lift?
Over time, the skin around your breasts begins to lose elasticity, leading to some drooping or sagging of the breasts. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is performed to address this loss of elasticity by removing the excess skin and lifting the breasts back to an elevated and more youthful position.
During a private consultation, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will carefully examine the current condition of your breasts and listen to your specific concerns and desired outcome for your figure. She will then work closely with you to create a fully personalized treatment plan designed to restore a youthful appearance of your breasts and provide you with the results you are envisioning.
What benefits can be expected with a breast lift?
The primary goal of breast lift surgery is to lift the breasts by removing excess skin. This will help to create a more youthful appearance and firmer feel of the breasts, while enhancing the body’s overall feminine curves.
A breast lift can also help to improve the appearance of the breasts following weight loss and the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. These life events can often cause the breasts to droop or sag, or appear flattened or “deflated”.
Women who have downward-pointing nipples may also choose to undergo a breast lift surgery to lift the breasts and reposition the nipple.
We believe that one of the greatest benefits of breast lift surgery is the confidence-boost we’ve seen many of our patients experience following their surgeries. Many women feel as though they’ve been given their bodies back following the changes they’ve experienced due to life’s many factors – from childbirth and weight loss, to the effects of getting older. We love hearing from our patients who are overjoyed at their newfound confidence whether it’s while they’re walking along Miami Beach in a bikini, or simply getting dressed every day.
Am I a good candidate for breast lift surgery?
Breast lift surgery can be a rewarding experience for women experiencing any of the following concerns:
- A loss of skin elasticity that has caused the breasts to sag or droop
- Drooping or sagging of the breasts following pregnancy or weight loss
- A deflated appearance of the breasts
- Downward-pointing nipples
- An elongated appearance of the areola
Breast lift surgery can help give you back the youthful and feminine figure you deserve. At New Look New Life, we believe every woman should feel sexy and confident with her body no matter her age. During your consultation, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will help to determine the best approach for your personalized breast lift surgery and can discuss the different options available to you.
Can I combine my breast lift with breast implant surgery?
Oftentimes, sagging or flatness of the breasts is accompanied by a loss of volume. This often occurs following pregnancy, significant weight loss, as well as overtime with age. Women who are experiencing both of these concerns may benefit from a combination of both breast lift and breast augmentation (or implant surgery) with Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini.
These breast enhancement surgeries can be combined into a single procedure in order to improve the position of the breasts, as well as their overall shape and size.
Many mothers choose to undergo both a breast lift and breast augmentation to renew their bodies and regain confidence after having children. Other complementary procedures, such as a tummy tuck or liposuction can also be combined in order to achieve a full mommy makeover.
What to expect during your breast lift recovery
Following your breast lift surgery, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will provide you with a light surgical bra in order to provide support as you are healing. You will be able to return home under the care of a loved one shortly after your surgery, but should plan to take it easy for the first couple of days.
Many of Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini’s breast lift patients are able to return to work within 2-3 days. Some soreness and stiffness is to be expected during the initial days of recovery, and you will need to avoid any straining, lifting, or running for about 7-10 days after surgery. Our patients are allowed to return to normal physical activity after that time as tolerated.
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will provide you with her personal cell number in case any questions or concerns arise during your recovery period. Please do not hesitate to reach out during this time.
