Breast Lift: Overview
Thanks to Dr. Michael W. Gray, the solution to droopy, saggy, asymmetrical or unshapely breasts is within your reach. A breast lift can improve the appearance of your breasts, making you feel younger and look sexier. In fact, breast lifts have become very popular with women who want to improve the shape of their breasts after having children, losing weight or dealing with the unavoidable effects of aging and gravity.
Breast Lift: Procedure
During a breast lift, Dr. Gray raises your nipples, tightens the skin, and if desired, can reduce the size of the areolas to give your breasts a more youthful look. Dr. Gray completes all breast lifts in his state of the art surgical facility within 1 to 1½ hours. Dr. Gray uses techniques that minimize scars and keeps the function of the breast intact. This means that the ability to breastfeed is not affected. Afterwards, most patients are amazed at how easy and painless the breast lift was.
The addition of a breast implant can add more volume to the breast, especially if greater volume at the top is desired. During your consultation, Dr. Gray will review and discuss the many ways he can perform a breast lift so you can determine which one is best for you.
Breast Lift: Recovery
After a breast lift, patients can return to work the very next day, but should refrain from strenuous activity for three weeks. There is minimal to no recovery time. Sutures are hidden under the skin and do not need to be removed, because they dissolve on their own. Scarring typically fades within two years.
