What is a Breast Lift?

Breast lift surgery is a body contouring treatment that redefines the breasts by reducing loose skin and surgically tightening the existing tissue to result in a more youthful and healthier appearance. This procedure is offered for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who have breast drooping due to breastfeeding, weight loss, aging, or gravity. Plastic surgeon Dr. Heath Charvet performs this cosmetic breast surgery at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa in New Orleans, LA. By using state-of-the-art methods, Dr. Charvet can help you choose the appropriate technique based upon the degree of sag present in addition to your desired aesthetic goal so you get the look of your dreams.

How is a Breast Lift Performed?

Breast lift surgery typically takes two hours or more and is performed while you are under general anesthesia. The incision used for cosmetic breast lift surgery generally falls within two categories, the anchor technique (inverted-T) and the straight line vertical incision. Once the incision is made, any excess skin is removed along with breast tissue and fat that is not desired. Your skin is then tightened, and the breasts are positioned higher and lifted so they look healthy and youthful. In many cases, the size and shape of the areola may be reconstructed and reduced to match the new placement and shape of the breast. At this time, an implant can be placed inside the breast if this is part of your treatment plan; however, implants can always be inserted at a later date. Recovery for breast lift surgery is more extensive than breast augmentation. After your procedure, we'll have you wear a medical compression bra to diminish swelling. A tiny tube is also inserted near the surgical area to assist with excess fluid leakage. It will take a few days before your swelling starts to go down. Dr. Charvet or a member of his team will provide detailed at-home care instructions to help you properly heal. Results following your breast lift treatment become evident after a few weeks as your breasts take their new position on your chest.
