Breast Lift Q & A

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure in which the structure of the breasts are altered to correct sagging and drooping. A breast lift is similar to a breast augmentation procedure, but instead of enlarging the breast through the use of implants, Dr. Olaya lifts or raises the breasts to a more natural height, making them fuller and more firm. During this process, the areolas and nipples are also adjusted to compensate for the new height. A breast lift is often recommended after a woman has had several pregnancies and breast fed her children. Sagging breasts may also be the result of excess weight loss or aging that has weakened the breast tissues.

How Long is the Recovery Time for a Breast Lift Procedure?

Recovery time is variant from patient to patient. It typically takes six weeks for the skin and tissues to heal.The breast size, and the depth and extent of the reconstruction may add to the patient's healing time. If the patient follows their instructions concerning rest, lifting restrictions and proper wound care, the healing time will go smoothly. In many cases, a patient may choose to have a breast lift procedure performed in conjunction with an abdominoplasty or other types of cosmetic procedure. Dr. Olaya may adjust the length of the recovery time so the patient can heal sufficiently before resuming regular activities.
