About Breast Lift Surgery
A surgical breast lift is a cosmetic treatment that lifts and reshapes the breasts by reducing excess skin and pulling tight the surrounding skin to produce a firmer, younger appearance. This body contouring surgery is offered for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who have breast sagging due to breast feeding, weight loss, aging, or gravity. Medical breakthroughs in breast lift surgery have made this surgical procedure so effective that new stats released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show around a 70% increase in demand for this procedure since 2000. Dr. David Yonick, a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Midland, MI, offers this cosmetic breast surgery at Yonick Plastic Surgery, integrating the most advanced methods and delicately choosing the proper technique depending on the level of sag present.
Many women visit Yonick Plastic Surgery hoping to get fuller breasts with breast implants; however, after a physical exam it may be confirmed that a mastopexy is needed and will be necessary before augmentation. This is because of the amount of breast sagging that is present. Women whose breasts and nipples point down in most cases need a breast lift to correct the skin irregularity and raise the breasts higher up on the chest wall. If your nipples point downward and your breasts look elongated, a cosmetic lift can improve their appearance. Women considering a breast lift need to be physically healthy and at a stable weight. While implants may be wanted, in a good portion of cases, a breast lift is all that is needed to add the fullness and shape that is desired.

Breast lift surgery takes about 2 – 4 hours and is performed using general anesthesia. The overall time duration for this surgery depends on the severity of breast sag present. The method used for mastopexy surgery generally falls within two categories — this is based on the the size and location needed for the incision. The anchor technique (inverted-T) and the vertical incisions are the preferred incision types. Once the incision is made, any wrinkly and loose skin is carefully trimmed away along with breast tissue and fat that is not desired. After this process, the skin left behind is pulled tight and the breasts are brought up and lifted so they look younger and healthy. In many cases, the size and shape of the areola is reduced to match the new shape of the breast. It is during this time an implant can be inserted inside the breast if this was agreed upon with Dr. Yonick before surgery. If a breast lift is the only technique being performed and if breast fullness and shape are a concern, breast implants can be done at a later date.
What To Expect
The overall recovery period for mastopexy is more lengthy than breast augmentation surgery. After surgery, you will be fitted with a support bra to minimize swelling. In addition, a tiny draining tube will be placed near the surgical area to assist with excess drainage that can sometimes occur after a surgery of this nature. The post-surgical swelling will decrease within about 3 – 5 days. Dr. Yonick or a member of his team will provide specific, at-home incision care instructions to assist your healing process. Results following a breast lift treatment are the most impactful after several months as your newly shaped breasts take their new position on your chest. The breasts will appear natural, and you will feel younger, prettier, and in sync with your frame.
