Just The Lift You Need

What is a Breast Lift?

While many women are familiar with breast augmentation, there are other procedures to revitalize and give breasts a fresh, youthful appearance. In Charlotte breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, can produce a tighter, firmer look for patients whose breasts have been impacted by childbirth, weight gain or loss, or simply gravity. While mastopexy is not the same as breast augmentation, some patients choose to combine the procedures. This procedure can also correct asymmetry and position the areolas and nipples in a more balanced and youthful manner. In addition, many patients combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation to enhance both lift and size.

A Range of Options

What are the benefits of a Breast Lift?

With a breast lift Charlotte patients have an excellent way to rejuvenate their appearance and achieve a firmer, more youthful look. This procedure can offer many benefits, including lifting the breasts and removing excess skin to restore a more youthful contour. It can also improve nipple projection, reduce under-breast irritation, reshape the breasts, and decrease the size of enlarged areolas. Additionally, breast lift surgery can correct asymmetry caused by breasts of different sizes and lift nipples that have begun to sag or fall below the breast crease.

What Can I Expect During a Breast Lift?

Your Breast Lift Procedure

Every breast lift procedure begins with a consultation, providing the patient with the opportunity to discuss their desired outcome with Adam C. Augenstein, MD, and agree on a treatment course that best fits the patient’s needs. During this time, Dr. Augenstein will want to know about the patient’s medical history, and the patient has the opportunity to ask any questions or request to see before and after photos. Dr. Augenstein will talk the patient through every phase of the breast lift procedure. There are multiple types of breast lift procedures, each with differing incisions to achieve the desired results.

A periareolar lift, for example, is ideal for patients who want to reduce the size of the areola without significantly changing the shape of the entire breast or need only small changes in nipple position.

A vertical lift is a suitable option for patients who need more lift and shaping to the nipple and breast.

Some patients choose to get a breast lift and augmentation at the same time, which increases the amount of time required for the procedure. Adding an implant to the breast at the same time as a lift adds volume and shape, especially to the upper part of the breast. After the breast lift surgery, patients are discharged and allowed to return home in the company of a friend or family member.

Natural-looking Results

Breast Lift Results

Breast lift surgery can provide immediate and noticeable results, with lifted, firmer breasts that enhance your body's natural contours. Although you'll be able to see the results of your surgery right away, it's important to note that some swelling and scarring can be expected during the initial recovery period. However, these effects will gradually subside as time passes, and your results will become even more apparent.

Minimal Downtime

Breast Lift Recovery and Aftercare

We will walk you through every step of your procedure prior to surgery, which should last about an hour, depending on your surgical plan. You will be given a general anesthetic to ensure your comfort and safety while your procedure is performed. You will be able to return home the same day, although we do monitor our patients immediately following surgery. During the first few days after a breast lift Charlotte patients may be sore and experience some swelling, though any pain can be easily managed with medication.

Most patients are able to resume their normal routine, including returning to work, within a week of surgery. Strenuous activities, including intense exercise, should be avoided for several weeks following a breast lift procedure in Charlotte. It is essential that patients carefully adhere to all aftercare instructions provided by the surgeon. In the months following surgery, scars should continue to fade, and as swelling and scars diminish, the full results of the procedure will become visible.
