Breast Lift

Evansville, Henderson, Indiana

Who should have a Breast Lift?

If your breasts have become saggy and lost their youthful fullness and shape due to pregnancy, nursing, or age, a breast lift or mastopexy procedure will restore your youthful contours and improve your self-image.

What is involved in the breast lift procedure?

In a breast lift procedure in Evansville, the surgeon will remove tissue from the lower portion of the breast then move the nipple and areola to a position more appropriate to the younger contour of the breast. You may also choose to have breast implants to fill in the breast shape and create a more youthful contour.

What is the normal healing time after a breast lift in Henderson, IN?

After your breast lift surgery, you will wear an elastic bandage or surgical bra over gauze dressings. You will experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling that will subside in a few days. Your stitches will be removed after a week or two. You may have some loss of feeling in your nipples and breast skin due to the swelling after surgery. The numbness usually goes away within about six weeks after surgery although it may last to some degree for several months to a year. Although you will be up and about within a couple of days after your surgery, you will probably not be able to return to work for a week or more, and you will need to restrict activities for a week to a month or more.

What results can I expect?

You may have noticeable and extensive scarring after your procedure, and although the scars will fade with time, they will never entirely disappear. However, incisions can be placed in a way that you will be able to wear most styles without scars showing. You should be pleased with the new youthful contours that result from your breast lift procedure in Henderson, but you need to keep in mind that the breast lift will not be permanent over the long term because pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and gravity will eventually cause sagging to begin again.
