Breast Lift in South Florida

Over time, the force of gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding might cause women’s breasts to sag and lose firmness. As a result, women feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about their appearance. If you can relate, the good news is that you don’t have to continue living with these insecurities. Palm Beach Dermatology Group can perform a breast lift at one of our offices in South Florida. This surgery changes the shape of the breasts to raise them up.

Our highly credentialed doctors have been helping our patients of all ages feel beautiful and healthy in their skin since 1982. Now, we’re here to do the same for you.

About
What a Breast Lift
Involves

 

Also called a mastopexy, a breast lift is when a doctor removes excess skin around the breasts and reshapes them to lift them up. Although a breast lift doesn’t change the size of the breast, it reduces sagging and raises the nipples.

How to Prepare for a Breast Lift

 

After we learn your medical history, conduct a physical exam, and approve you for the surgery, we might require or recommend you to:

  • Get a mammogram
  • Stop smoking
  • Pause taking medications that could interfere with the surgery
  • Arrange for someone to pick you up and help you with certain activities after the surgery

What to Expect From the Surgery

 

Mayo Clinic dictates that your doctor might make an incision around the nipple, down from the nipple to the crease of the breast, or across the breasts.

We may insert stitches in the breasts to reshape them or reduce the size of the nipples. Once we remove the excess skin and raise the nipples, we bring the breasts together. Your doctor will close the incisions with skin adhesives, tape, or sutures.

This procedure should last about two or three hours.

What the Days After a Breast Lift
Might Feel Like

 

You should notice a change in your breasts almost immediately. However, they can take a few months to completely settle into their new shape.

After the surgery, it’s totally normal to feel sore or have red lumps, especially around the incision marks, for up to two weeks. Numbness in and around the nipples is also common.

You’ll wear a surgical support bra for about three or four days. Then, we’ll have you move on to wearing a soft support bra for three or four weeks. It depends on how well you’re healing.

Attention
How Our South Florida Doctors Determine If a Breast Lift Is Right for You

 

You might be a good candidate to undergo a breast lift if:

  • Your breasts sag.
  • Your nipple drop downward or past the creases of your breasts.
  • One breast hangs lower than the other.
  • The size of your nipples are no longer proportionate to your breasts.

If you plan to become pregnant or breastfeed, we may recommend that you put off this surgery. A breast lift can make it difficult for you to produce milk. The effects of pregnancy can also stretch your breasts, possibly undoing the results of the surgery.
