Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Dr. Joseph Mazza, board certified plastic surgeon, offers mastopexy (breast lift) at his Mazza Plastic Surgery Center located in Ft. Myers, FL. Mastopexy is a plastic surgery procedure designed to lift the breasts.
It’s a fact of life, as we age our skin begins to sag as skin loses its’ elasticity. For some women this fact is particularly problematic as breast tissue thins reducing the breast’s firmness and shape. Women find that their clothes may no longer fit properly, and they avoid wearing form-fitting clothes.
Age and gravity aren’t the only factors causing a woman’s breast to sag. Other contributing factors are:
- Significant weight gain and loss
- Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Dr. Mazza advises that a breast lift will not change the size or augment your breast. (See breast augmentation) However, if you want to regain your youthful breast shape and firmness, a breast lift may be right for you.
IS A BREAST LIFT RIGHT FOR ME?
CONSULTATION PROCESS WITH JOSEPH MAZZA, M.D.
During your consultation with Dr. Mazza, he will thoroughly discuss your aesthetic goals as well as review your medical history. You may also want to discuss if a breast augmentation and lift are needed to achieve your body shaping needs. It is important that you are in overall good health, you weight is stabilized, and that you no longer plan to become pregnant and have children.
BREAST LIFT PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY
Dr. Joseph Mazza utilizes minimally invasive surgical techniques to minimize scaring and aid in his patients’ fast recovery. Typically the breast lift procedure is done with very small incisions made around the areola on the underside of the breasts. After the incisions are made Dr. Mazza will precisely remove any excess breast tissue and reposition the breasts on the chest wall. A breast lift will restore a woman’s breast to a more youthful shape and “perkiness.”
Dr. Mazza advises his patients to expect some mild discomfort and pain. Pain medication will be prescribed to relieve pain. Expect some bruising and swelling. Numbness is common but will dissipate within 10 to 14 days. A support bra should be worn and strenuous activity avoided.
