Enhance the Shape and Position of Your Breasts With a Breast Lift in Austin

Aging, pregnancy, nursing, and weight change can cause your breasts to sag and appear deflated over time. These developments can profoundly impact your appearance, your self-confidence, and even the fit of your clothing. In some cases, sagging breasts can also cause back and shoulder pain and be detrimental to your posture. If you’re hoping to stop your breasts from drooping and restore them to a perkier, more youthful position, a breast lift in Austin with our team may be the perfect solution.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that aims to lift and reshape sagging breasts. This procedure is commonly performed on women who have experienced significant weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or aging, which can cause the breasts to lose their firmness and shape. During a breast lift, excess skin is removed from the breasts, and the remaining skin is tightened to lift the breasts. The nipple and areola are also repositioned to a higher, more youthful location on the breast. 

Benefits of a Breast Lift

A breast lift performed by one of our expert plastic surgeons can offer all of the following benefits:

  • Reduction of breast sagging
  • Perkier, more lifted breast position
  • Improved breast proportions
  • Rounder, more youthful breast shape
  • Alleviated back and shoulder pain

  • Better posture

  • Improved self-confidence

What to Expect During Your Breast Lift Surgery

Before your breast lift, you’ll need to schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our female plastic surgeons. Your surgeon will examine your breasts and talk to you about your specific goals for the procedure. She will answer any questions you may have, discuss what to expect during and after your surgery, and put together a custom-tailored treatment plan for you.

Your breast lift procedure will likely be an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Once you’re sleeping peacefully, your surgeon will make incisions around the areolas and down to the lower creases of the breasts.

Excess skin will then be removed, and the breast tissue will be carefully reshaped and lifted. The nipples may also be repositioned to a more natural location. Once your surgeon is finished making adjustments, she will close the incisions with sutures and apply bandages.

After the procedure, you’ll be kept at the facility for a couple of hours to allow the anesthesia to wear off and to ensure that you don’t suffer any complications. You’ll then be able to have a friend or family member drive you home and, ideally, stay with you for one or two nights.

Breast Lift Recovery

After undergoing breast lift surgery, it is important to take proper care of yourself during the recovery period to ensure a successful outcome. You will need to wear a special surgical support bra for up to six weeks following the surgery to help reduce swelling and support your breasts.

You’ll likely need to rest at home for between one and two weeks before you can start gradually resuming your normal routine. You should be able to return to work within a couple of weeks, but it’s best to avoid strenuous exercise or physical activity for around five to six weeks. While recovering, you can boost the healing process by getting plenty of sleep, eating nutritious foods, and staying hydrated.
