breast lift


Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and recontour sagging breasts. In some cases, it can be performed in conjunction with surgery to enlarge the size of the breasts. A breast lift can be performed at any age, but plastic surgeons usually recommend waiting until breast development has stopped. Pregnancy and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast lift surgery before having children and feel that they can address any subsequent changes later. Since the milk ducts and nipples are left intact, breast lift surgery usually will not affect your ability to breast-feed; however, you should discuss this with Dr. Saieh.

Please stop, at least two weeks before surgery, all prescription and non-prescription herbal-like vitamins, diet pills, energizers, stimulants and appetite suppressants either bought in the USA or a foreign country, i.e. Mexico, etc. Bring them to the office and tell Dr. Saieh about them. Do not take Aspirin or Ibuprofen or any other related anti-inflammatory products for a period of three (3) weeks prior to surgery and four (4) weeks after surgery, because they can cause increased bleeding. To take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is okay. If you are a smoker, you will be asked to stop smoking well in advance of surgery.

breast lift Mastopexy is performed to lift sagging, loose breasts or breasts that have lost volume and elasticity after childbearing. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the dark pink skin surrounding the nipple. The extent of the procedure depends on what changes are desired and what your surgeon deems appropriate. Mastopexy is usually performed under general anesthesia to allow you to sleep through the entire operation, although local anesthesia to numb the area around the breasts may be used.

Individual factors and personal preferences will determine the specific technique selected to lift your breasts. A common method of lifting the breasts involves three incisions. One incision is made around the areola. Another runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast. The third incision is horizontal beneath the breast and follows the natural curve of the breast crease. After Dr. Saieh has removed excess breast skin, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position. The areola, which in a sagging breast may have been stretched, can be reduced in size. Skin that was formerly located above the areola is brought down and together beneath it to reshape the breast. The nipples and areolas remain attached to underlying mounds of tissue, and this usually allows for the preservation of sensation and the ability to breast-feed. breast lift There are many variations to the design of the incisions for breast lift surgery. The size and shape of your breasts, size of your areolas, and extent of sagging are factors that will help Dr. Saieh determine the best technique for you. In some instances, it may be possible to avoid the horizontal incision beneath the breast. Sometimes a technique may be used that avoids the horizontal incision as well as the vertical incision that runs from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease. If you are a good candidate for a modified technique, Dr. Saieh will discuss this with you.

If you and Dr. Saieh have decided that it is desirable to enlarge your breasts at the same time as they are lifted, this will require insertion of breast implants. If this is an option that you wish to consider, Dr. Saieh will review the necessary information with you and may provide you with a brochure on breast augmentation.

After surgery, pain that is controlled easily by medication will subside in a day or two. Within the first week, the dressing will be replaced by a soft bra which you will be advised to wear for several weeks.
