BREAST LIFT CANDIDATES
Each breast lift procedure is designed to address a patient’s unique patterns of aging, sagging and volume loss. However, breast lift patients typically have:
- Volume loss
- Motivation to look and feel better
- Sagging breasts
- Enlarged aureolas
- Breast asymmetry
Our surgeon will listen carefully to your goals for breast enhancement surgery at your personal consultation. If they determine you are a good candidate for a breast lift, they will collaborate with you to establish a surgery plan for the creation of your ideal breasts.
THE TRILOGY DIFFERENCE
Your breast lift procedure begins with our surgeon making the incisions. They will use what’s known as a “lollipop incision,” which encircles the aureola and descends vertically down the breast. This allows them to remove excess tissue and skin, and lift and reshape the breast. They often reduce enlarged aureolas at the same time to match the more youthful contours of the breasts.
For some women who wish to increase the size of their breasts, this procedure may be preformed in conjunction with breast augmentation.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTERWARD
Our doctors will bandage your chest and wrap it in a compression garment after your procedure. This will allow your breasts to retain their newly youthful appearance. Most women will need to take about a week off of work. After this time, patients commonly resume their daily routines. However, our doctors will likely advise you to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for several weeks.
