Breast Lift / Reduction

Helping You Obtain Your Desired Breast Size

Breast Lift

Mastopexy is a very common procedure especially in women after losing weight and after breast feeding. This operation raises the both the nipple and the breast and re-contours the loose and sagging breast tissue.

Often breasts are enlarged and given more upper pole fullness by placing an implant at the same time of breast lift surgery.

Recovery

After surgery patients limit exercise with no jogging, aerobics, or lifting over 20 pounds for the first three weeks. You can return to the gym after you are off pain medications- usually three to four days- for light exercises including tread mill walking, Elliptical training, Stairmaster, light weights and stationary cycling. Patients may resume most normal activities in three weeks.

Mastopexy scars are permanent but improve over the first year.

Breast Reduction

Large heavy breasts are concerning to many women. Large breasts interfere with everyday activities and causes back pain, rashes, chest and breast pain, and inability to wear normal clothing.

 

  • Back Pain
  • Postural Problems
  • Deformities of the Back and Shoulders
  • Skin Rashes Under the Breasts
  • Breast Pain

Breast reduction surgery can alleviate or correct these problems as well as improve the shape of the breast and nipple areas. This procedure involves removing excess breast tissue and skin. As a result, the entire breast is both lifted and reduced in size.
