Breast Lift Redlands
You may have noticed that your breasts sag due to loss of skin elasticity. Time, gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, or breast-feeding may negatively affect the position and shape of your breasts, leading you to desire a breast lift (mastopexy) from Redlands, California plastic surgeon Dr. Rau.
Desired Results of Breast Lift Plastic Surgery
You may seek a breast lift from Redlands plastic surgeon Dr. Rau if you are satisfied with the size of your breasts, but would like a raised, more youthful breast contour. Breast lift cosmetic surgery can enhance your confidence and sexuality.
Your Individual Goals for Breast Lift
Your breast lift cosmetic surgery goals will be discussed realistically with California plastic surgeon Dr. Rau. Breast lifts are often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery. Together you will decide which procedures Dr. Rau will perform in order to achieve your desired results. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions about how to prepare. You will also schedule a pre-operative appointment to review your medical history, take pre-operative photographs, and (if you are also undergoing breast enlargement surgery) experiment with sizer implants.
Breast Lift Procedure Details
On the day of surgery, you will have a final consultation with Redlands plastic surgeon Dr. Rau. Your breast lift procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Rau offers several breast lift incision options, which usually heal well and present minimal scarring:
- Crescent lift (the most minimal lift, leaving a slight scar on the upper areola)
- Circumareolar lift (also called a donut or Benelli lift, creating an incision around the areola)
- Lollipop incision (incision running vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease)
- Anchor lift (also called a Wise pattern (incision around the nipple, vertically from the bottom edge of the areola and then horizontally beneath the breast)
You may be sore for a few days after your breast lift procedure, but soon you will be able to resume your normal activities.
