About Breast Lifts

A breast uplift surgery, or mastopexy, will enhance your feminine curves and improve the proportions of your body. This procedure is performed by applying incisions along the chest. The stretched skin that makes your breasts appear droopy will be reduced through the incision. The remaining skin will be lifted, helping to relocate your breasts to a higher position.

This surgery will help your figure look younger and healthier.

If you are tired of aging breasts that appear saggy, this procedure can help transform your body. Look good in bathing suits and low cut tops with your newly shaped and positioned breasts.

Incisions

The degree of breast ptosis, or droopiness of the chest, that you have will determine the technique used to recreate your chest. Some of the techniques used include:

Crescent Incision

A small incision is made along the upper edge of the areola. Through this incision, tissue is removed and the breasts lifted. This incision is for women who have minimal breast sagging.

Peri-Areolar Incision

A pattern will be incised along the edge of the areola allowing tissue to be easily accessed. If the areola is misshapen or stretched, this technique will allow it to be corrected to its previous size.

Lollipop Incision

Two incisions will be created on each breast, one along the areola and the second from the bottom of the areola to the natural crease under the breast. This method will reduce moderate sagging and reshape the areolas.

Inverted-T Incision

For women with severely sagging breasts, the inverted-T method is used. Three incisions will be made along each breast. The first will be applied around the areola, the second from the areola to the breast crease, and the last will be made along the breast crease. This technique allows Dr. Seare to remove large amounts of excess skin and lift the chest to its former position. This technique is often combined with a breast reduction.

Dr. Seare will implement the best method to correct your breasts, his strategy may include a combination of the above-lifted incisions or one in particular. The details of your surgery will be planned in your personal consultation.

Anesthesia

At Clinique Sculpture, we offer our patients many different anesthesia options to help their procedure be comfortable and safe. One of the popular options that Dr. Seare uses in most of his procedures is Awake Anesthesia. This form of anesthesia is an excellent option for your breast lift because it is cheaper than general anesthesia and is safer. To learn more about this option, ask about it during your personal consultation with Dr. Seare.

Designate a recovery area in your home. This space should be free of disturbances and allow you to rest. Surround this area with extra pillows, entertainment, medication, and water.

Twelve hours before your surgery you will need to fast and get a good night’s rest. The morning of the surgery, plan to arrive at your appointment a few minutes early so you aren’t stressed out.

When you arrive at your appointment, you will sign in and change into a gown. The surgical team will greet you and your treatment area will be cleaned and marked for surgery.

The preferred form of anesthesia will be applied and once it has taken effect, your surgery will begin.

Incisions will be made in predetermined patterns discussed during your consultation. Through these incisions, excess skin and tissue will be removed. The areolas may be resized and adjusted to their normal shape. The remaining chest skin will then be lifted and the incisions will be closed. Drains may be placed in incisions and the treated areas will be bandaged. The whole surgery will take about two hours.

Recovery

After your surgery, your incision sites will be sore and swollen. Prescribed medications will help improve the recovery process and keep you comfortable.
