A breast lift — also known as mastopexy — is extremely effective for patients looking to address the effects of gravity and aging. Patients will have a raised and reshaped bust line that lends a beautiful new contour to their bodies. Some women undergo an added breast lift with their breast augmentation procedure to enhance their results.
Dr. John Michael Quinn often performs breast lift procedures on women who:
- Have lost a significant amount of weight
- Have breast-fed and are experiencing sagging
- Are unhappy with the positioning of their areolas
- Have experienced a slow sagging over time
If you’re a healthy woman who wants to lift your breasts to a more youthful elevation, a breast lift may be a good option for you.
Breast lift surgery takes between one and three hours. Dr. Quinn will mark your breasts prior to surgery to provide guidelines for incisions that will be made during surgery. Dr. Quinn will begin the procedure by making the incisions and removing any excess skin. At this point, the procedure may or may not include inserting breast implants to restore the breast to its original shape and fullness. The breast lift may involve moving nipples and/or resizing the areolas.
Before & After Photos
When surgery is completed, the incisions will be sealed and your recovery will begin. This surgery requires anesthesia, so someone will need to drive you home following the procedure. All consultations, procedures, and appointments for our patients take place at our advanced surgical center in Overland Park, KS.
With a breast lift, as with any other breast surgery, communication with Dr. Quinn is key so that you understand the procedure, the result and the aftermath. Make sure you discuss your goals and expectations with your surgeon.
