Breast Lift

Candidates For A Breast Lift

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ed Pittman performs mastopexy in order to lift and reshape your breasts. Nursing, pregnancy, gravity, and significant weight gain or loss can cause breasts to lose their firmness and shape over time. A breast lift with Dr. Pittman addresses this sagging and inevitable loss of self-confidence. Your surgeon can also restore enlarged nipple areolar complexes to a smaller size while re-positioning them on the breast. Breast lifts are commonly performed in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery, to give you fuller, more youthful breasts.

Your breast lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Breast lift surgery with Dr. Pittman will typically take two to three hours at our private, fully accredited AAAHC surgical facility, offering each patient comfort and convenience, while avoiding a hospital visit and those associated costs. To perform a breast lift, incisions are made around the areola and vertically down the breast. It is sometimes necessary for incisions to extend into the crease beneath the breast. Excess skin can also be removed before elevating the nipple areolar complex to a more balanced, youthful position on the breast

Recovery & Results*

For the first month after your procedure, Dr. Ed Pittman will place restrictions on any strenuous upper-body or exercise activity. It is also required for patients to wear a supportive bra consistently for several weeks after surgery. You can go back to work in one week but must avoid strenuous activities for 1 month. Your scars from the procedure will fade over the course of several months to a year.
