There are many reasons why your breasts can sag, including aging, pregnancy, breast feeding, and weight loss. At The Plastic Surgery Institute, we have the best Rancho Mirage breast lift specialists to help improve your bust line and restore your figure.
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgery designed to correct the normal effects of age, gravity, weight gain or loss, and changes sustained through pregnancy and breast feeding. Ptosis of the breast is a condition that deals with the droopiness, sagging or downturned of breasts.
The goal of breast lift is altering the appearance of the breasts so they appear firm, youthful and attractive.
A number of techniques can impact these changes depending on what the surgeon and patient decides to do. A surgeon can carefully place incisions and remove excess breast tissue and skin. The areola can also be repositioned higher so the nipple faces forward and more ventrally instead of down. There are other more intricate techniques and variations that can be employed for patients who have specific concerns.
A candidate should be in good physically and emotionally health and who understand that the procedure is a major surgery with certain limitations and risks.
A Rancho Mirage breast lift can help women with medium to smaller breasts that have seen a clear change in the firmness and condition of their breasts. You are encouraged to speak candidly with your surgeon about what you hope to change and what you expect so together you can create realistic expectations and ensure the final results are satisfactory.
Patients can schedule a consultation with Dr. Villanueva or Dr. Chopra at our Palm Desert area location, The Plastic Surgery Institute.
After a full medical assessment and review of a patient’s medical record, your surgeon will inform you about the best options for you and your particular needs. Your doctor will give you detailed information on how to best prepare for surgery. There are steps that you can take to be in the best condition for your procedure.
Being in good health is an important part of going through any surgery. A healthy diet and regular exercise are a common thread with our patients.
If you smoke, you will need to quit not only prior to your surgery but after as well because smoking reduces the oxygen supply to the body and can lead to severe complications during surgery and in your recovery. Refrain from taking blood-thinning drugs, including over the counter medications like Aleve and Advil. These drugs can lead to excessive blood loss during surgery and recovery. They should be avoided until you are given the green light to resume by your surgeon.
A breast lift is an outpatient procedure so you are encouraged to prepare a place where you plan to recovery at home. It should include a bed or sofa with pillows on which you can sleep and relax comfortably, well stocked with drinking water, all of the medications prescribed by your surgeon, a phone or cell charger, and some entertainment. Have a friend or family member around to help out for the first several days after your surgery.
