I have said this before, we all fight gravity everywhere! Over time, gravity exerts its force and causes the breast to hang or sag. This can best be quantified or seen by following the position of the nipple on the breast. Eventually, gravity will cause the nipples to point to the toes!
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that’s designed to lift saggy breasts and eliminate loose skin in the area. The goal of the procedure offered by Dr. Nykiel is to raise the nipples and tighten the skin. Thus, creating a more youthful and perky breast.
In addition to giving the breasts a more youthful appearance, the breast lift can also help reduce the size of the areola to be more proportional to the overall breast shape. The different breast lift incisions (around the nipple or peri-areolar lift, vertical lift, and/or full a.k.a. inverted-“T”/anchor incision) depends on the position of the nipple and looseness of the skin. That is best determined after a consultation.
A breast lift surgery may take about 2 hours to complete. We’ll provide an anesthetic to help keep you comfortable during the entire procedure. It’s an outpatient procedure, meaning you can also return home the same day it is performed. However, it’s important for you to have someone available to help drive you home and assist you while you are recovering.
After the procedure, you can expect to have a more youthful breast projection, enhanced fullness, and improved nipple-areolar complex. Sometimes, I will extend the breast lift if one of your goals is to remove the “side-breast” or “bra-roll”. Again, how far we need to extend the lift is best determined during a consultation.
Once the necessary corrections are made, I will close the incisions and secure the treatment area. You will need to take about two to three weeks to recover. In this time, you should avoid strenuous activities and repetitive movements with your arms. You will be provided with detailed instructions that you must follow to make sure you heal quickly and achieve the best results possible.
If your breasts are beginning to develop a saggy appearance or have already shown a significant degree of sagging, then you may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery. You will need to schedule a consultation in our Ontario office so we can help make sure you’re a good fit. During your consultation, we will discuss your goals and ask you questions about your medical history.
