Breasts usually lose their firmness and shape, and tend to drop with age. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and gravity all take their toll on the breasts. The result is saggy breasts that bear little resemblance to their younger days.
A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery that lifts the breasts to a more youthful appearance. The breast shape and firmness are improved, and the skin and underlying tissues are tightened. Excess skin is trimmed.
Breast lift surgery has become increasingly popular, but while the surgery is considered very safe, women who want to firm up their breasts sometimes avoid it because they are concerned about post-surgery complications.
At UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center, we have board-certified plastic surgeons that take every precaution possible before and during breast lift surgery to avoid any post-operation complications. After all, we want the same great results that you do!
The procedure takes from one to three hours. General anesthesia is the norm. This ensures that the patient doesn’t feel any discomfort during the surgery. We do regular post-op checkups and take every precaution to ensure that the risk of complications is minimized.
Your results will begin to be visible in a few days as soon as swelling goes down, with the full impact of the procedure visible after a couple of weeks.
