A mastopexy, often referred to as a breast lift, is a procedure that aims to give a patient tighter and firmer breasts. If you are interested in receiving a breast lift, this breakdown of the procedure can help you mentally prepare for the process.
The process begins with your initial consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Troy Pittman, where you will discuss your goals and Dr. Pittman will take measurements for the procedure.
During the mastopexy surgery, you will be under general anesthesia. The incisions made and the skin that will be removed varies from woman to woman, as it must cater to the size and shape of their breasts.
The procedure takes between one to two hours to complete. Dr. Pittman will use dressings to cover the incisions immediately following the procedure. Recovery will take four to six weeks.
Dr. Pittman specializes in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the breasts. If you’re looking for quality care and impressive results, contact us to schedule a consultation.
