What is Breast Lift and Reconstruction Surgery?
Over time, a woman’s breasts can lose their shape and firmness due to factors such as:
- Weight loss
- Poor support during exercise
- Pregnancy and/or breastfeeding
Breast lift surgery serves to remove excess skin and reposition the breasts to a more elevated position. When one or both breasts have been lost to due mastectomy surgery, we can also perform breast reconstruction surgery to restore a more natural-looking breast. In some cases, both of these procedures can be performed together. These options can be discussed with Mr. Salerno during your consultation.
What Can I Expect During Breast Lift and Reconstruction Surgery?
This procedure can be personalized depending on your unique condition and preferences. This procedure can be performed using multiple techniques and incision patterns in order to create your desired results. Prior to your procedure, we will discuss your surgical plan and what you can expect.
What is the Recovery Like?
The recovery process can be different for every patient, but some bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort may be experienced as the breasts heal. It is often advised to arrange for someone to drive you home after your procedure, as anesthesia may be used. Mr. Salerno can help you determine how long you should take to recover, when you can return to normal activities, and what you can expect during the healing process. Once all bruising and swelling subsides, the breasts will appear more elevated and perky.
