Restore and Renew your Natural Breasts with Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.
Anyone, at any age, can have drooping or sagging breasts. This occurs because breasts are only composed of fat, glands, and connective tissue. There are no supportive muscles in the actual breast itself exist. Ligaments called Cooper’s ligaments, which act as “nature’s bra”, connect the muscles under the breasts. Cooper’s ligaments and the skin are the only support for the breast. This is why gravity pulls the breasts down, stretching out the skin and Cooper’s ligaments, causing the breasts to droop.
Additional reasons women desire a breast lift include the effects of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, and heredity which can increase the rate and severity of sagging breasts.
Since a breast lift does not change the shape or fullness of the breasts, many of our patients choose to combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation to increase the size of their breasts at the same time for optimal and natural-looking results. The nipple and areola (the darker skin around the nipple) can also be repositioned or resized during a breast lift procedure to further enhance the appearance of the breast.
The first step is your breast lift consultation with Dr. Greg Chernoff. During this consultation you will discuss your aesthetic goals, including breast size and nipple position. Dr. Chernoff will examine your breasts to assess the tone of your skin, areolar size, and quality of your breast tissue. If it is determined that you are a candidate for a breast lift procedure, further details will be explained and your medical eligibility will be thoroughly evaluated.
Dr. Greg Chernoff is a board-certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in all types of breast augmentation, restoration and renewal surgeries.
What is a Breast Lift Surgery?
A breast lift, or mastopexy, varies based on each patient’s anatomy and breast lift goals. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Indianapolis, breast lift surgery is done under general anesthesia and may take 2-3 hours, depending on the complexity of the surgery and if a breast implant is added to the procedure.
There are different types of breast lift surgeries and the main criteria for selecting the correct approach is the degree of lifting desired, the looseness of your skin, and the amount of breast tissue (glandular and fatty tissue) inside your breast skin.
You will likely experience bruising, swelling, and soreness for a few days. You will be required to wear a surgical bra for 1 week, and then you will wear a support bra for 1 month.
Preparing for Surgery
Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our “Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery”. The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.
