Breast Lift and Minimal Incision Breast Lift
Have beautiful, full, perky, young- looking breasts! Go braless if you want to!
Are your breasts lower than where they used to be? This occurs in many women with aging, after having children or from weight loss.
For women who want to correct sag and look higher and "perkier" without going much larger, breast lifting is available in a wide assortment of variations and techniques. Sometimes we combine a breast lift with a small implant, not only to raise the breast, but to also make it fuller and “perkier.” While many times it is not necessary to have a breast implant placed when undergoing a breast lift, many women, especially those who have lost a certain amount of breast volume over the years, find they desire more fullness in the upper part of the breast, Of our patients undergoing this type of breast lift combined with a small breast enlargement, most are opting to have silicone gel implants. After many years, the Food and Drug Administration has re-released silicone gel breast implants onto the general market. Several large medical studies, including one mandated by the FDA in which Dr. Varkony was an investigator, have shown silicone gel implants to be safe. Be sure to ask us about this as well as about saline implants, which are also still available, when you come in for your consultation. Either way, we use only smooth implants to give you the most natural, beautiful results possible.
In some patients, breast lift can be achieved simply by doing a breast enlargement using a small breast implant. In many cases, placing an implant behind the breast results in an upward rotation of the nipple and areola in addition to providing an esthetically pleasing increase in fullness. In these patients, one can achieve the desired result of a breast lift while obtaining the bonus results of enhanced fullness with no visible scarring. Please see the section on breast enlargement.
Should you decide to have a breast implant placed at the time of your breast lift, our unique system of implant sizing is the most accurate and predictable way to get the breast size and shape you want. Don’t rely on magazine photos or guesswork. Don’t let some other surgeon decide what size and shape breasts you should have. You’ve waited far too long to have this surgery for that to occur. Let us show you how to obtain the look you want to achieve.
Breast lift surgery is done on an out- patient basis. You can have your surgery in the morning and be back at home or in your hotel room in the afternoon. An overnight stay in a post- operative nursing facility or a private nurse in your home or hotel room for the first day can be arranged if desired. Most women return to work 3-4 days afterwards. There is usually very little discomfort associated with breast lift surgery as the surgery is done on the skin of the breast and not the breast tissue itself. Lasering is available to reduce the visibility of scars should they arise. Ask us which technique is right for you.
