Look Stunning in 2016 with a Breast Lift

If you are looking for a way to dramatically improve your appearance in 2016, a breast lift might be the right procedure for you. This plastic surgery effectively lifts sagging, drooping breasts, restoring them to a perkier, more youthful position. The breast lift is performed on an outpatient basis at Umansky Plastic Surgery, offering women improvement of their breast shape without taking a significant amount of time out of their daily lives.

Explaining the Breast Lift
A breast lift is a surgical procedure to reverse the sagging of breasts that is common after childbirth, breastfeeding and weight loss. It can also occur as a normal part of the aging process. The breast lift removes excess skin while restoring the breast to a higher position on the chest. The nipple and areola are repositioned to create a more youthful look. After a breast lift procedure, breasts appear firmer with a more attractive shape.

Breast Lift Benefits
There are a number of potential benefits associated with the breast lift procedure:

  • Creates a more youthful body profile
  • Produces the appearance of fuller, firmer breasts
  • Increases self-confidence and self-esteem
  • May improve breast projection and cleavage
  • Helps clothing to fit more smoothly

Is a Breast Lift Right for You?
A breast lift is typically recommended to a woman who has experienced significant ptosis (drooping) of the breasts due to childbirth, weight loss, or aging. Patients undergoing a breast lift should be in relatively good health and have realistic expectations for the procedure. A breast lift will not increase the size of the breasts, although some women may find the procedure makes their breasts look fuller along their superior aspect. If size is a concern, a breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation using implants to achieve desired results.

Surgery and Recovery
At Umansky Plastic Surgery, we perform breast lifts on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Incisions are made around the areola, with additional incisions running down the lower half of the breast and in the breast crease. Known as the “anchor” incision, this approach usually leaves good quality scars after the procedure.

During the breast lift, Dr. William or Jeffrey Umansky, MD removes excess skin while placing the breast in a higher position on the chest. The procedure typically takes 2-3 hours to complete and patients spend some time in recovery before they are sent home that same day. Recovery from a breast lift usually takes 1-2 weeks, with most patients returning to work and regular activities within one week.

A breast lift offers long-lasting, dramatic results and can give you the self-confidence boost you are looking for in 2016. To learn more about this procedure, contact Umansky Plastic Surgery at 858-281-4560.
