Breast Lift St. Petersburg

Breast LiftBreast lift, also known as a Mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to reshape the breasts, reduce sagging and raise the position of the nipples and the areolae. The size of the areolae can be reduced during the procedure to keep them in proportion to the newly shaped breasts.

A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

Pregnancy
Breastfeeding
Weight fluctuations
Aging
Gravity
Heredity

A breast lift won’t significantly change the size of your breasts. However, a breast lift can be done in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction.

Following surgery, patients may experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising. This will typically resolve within two to three weeks. Pain medication may help make patients more comfortable following a breast lift surgery. Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise, as well as sleeping on your stomach for two to four weeks after your surgery. Patients are required to wear a surgical bra for several days. Patients are normally able to return to light activities and work after about a week.
