Rejuvenate Your Bust Line with a Breast Lift
A breast lift, or mastopexy, can benefit patients who want to restore perkiness and symmetry to their breasts without increasing their cup size. Dr. H. Daniel Atwood in Fayetteville, AR, can customize this procedure based on your goals. He performs all surgical procedures at a local surgery center to provide each patient with privacy and state-of-the-art treatment.
While augmentation addresses the size and shape of your breasts, a breast lift is designed to address sagging that occurs due to aging, weight loss, breastfeeding, and other factors by removing some tissue and reshaping the breasts.
Patients who have undergone a breast lift by Dr. Atwood experience discreet and subdued scarring once their incisions are fully healed.
Dr. Atwood can combine a breast lift with breast augmentation if you wish to achieve both elevation and an increase in breast size. For optimal results and safety, Dr. Atwood recommends that patients who want both procedures undergo a breast lift first. Implants can be placed three to six months later.
For this procedure, Dr. Atwood does not recommend that patients bring in photos of their ideal breast size and shape. Instead, the outcome of your surgery will be entirely based on your existing tissue and breast size.
Once our anesthesiologist has administered anesthesia, we are able to perform the surgery in two to three hours, depending on the extent of your procedure. After placing discreet incisions, Dr. Atwood will trim away excess tissue. Next, the incisions are closed in a way that fosters a lifted, perkier breast shape.
Many patients are apprehensive about undergoing a breast lift or other cosmetic procedures because they are nervous about scarring. However, patients who have undergone a breast lift by Dr. Atwood experience discreet and subdued scarring once their incisions are fully healed. In order to help you experience the best possible outcome, our nurses will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions.
The duration of your recovery will depend mostly on the extent of your treatment and your body's natural capacity to heal. Many patients are able to return to non-strenuous work after about a week. As with any surgery, it is important during recovery to avoid any type of physical activity that might significantly increase your heart rate or place strain on your incisions. Dr. Atwood will advise when it is safe to resume exercise and other activity.
If the contours of your bust line make you feel self-conscious, our compassionate practice is here to rejuvenate your breasts and help you experience an exhilarating boost in confidence. Dr. Atwood can assess your candidacy for a breast lift and guide you through the process to help you achieve the results you want.
