Pregnancy, aging and weight loss can cause breasts to sag, droop, and lose firmness. A breast lift (mastopexy) corrects this by lifting the breasts into a more projected position, creating an attractive, youthful shape. To achieve this, Dr. Newall removes excess tissue and tightens tissues in the surrounding area.
Breast augmentation is often performed in conjunction with a breast lift for women who desire a fuller breast appearance, while those who have excessive breast tissue may choose to have a breast reduction along with a lift to create a more proportional appearance. In some cases, Dr. Newall may reduce the size of the areolas for more balance, youthful looking breasts.
During your consultation, he will discuss the right combination of factors to give you breasts that are shapely, lifted and well-proportioned. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis and lasts approximately 2-3 hours. Patients usually can return to work 4-5 days after surgery.
