What is a Breast Lift?
For a firmer and younger look, a breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue. This body contouring surgery works well for women who experience flat or saggy breasts because of pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. Thanks to medical advancements in mastopexy techniques, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows "a 70% increase in demand since 2000." At Tulsa Surgical Arts, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina proudly offers this surgery to his Tulsa, OK community. By combining the latest techniques and research, Dr. Cuzalina can choose the best technique based on your condition and desired outcome. Please call us to schedule an appointment and learn more.
What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?
Excess breast skin can cause the breasts to sag and appear flat. A breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue, resulting in a firmer and more youthful appearance. Patients choose Tulsa Surgical Arts because we offer the latest mastopexy techniques, which results in natural-looking breasts with minimal scarring. Dr. Cuzalina knows that each patient is unique, so he spends time getting to know you and your goals before recommending a treatment plan.
Is A Breast Lift For You?
At first, you may schedule a consultation because you think you need breast implants; however, after a physical exam with Dr. Cuzalina, he may determine that a breast lift is an even better option. A breast lift addresses sagging breasts and nipples. If you have saggy breasts, a breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the tissue so they appear higher on the chest wall. Additionally, a breast lift can treat the appearance of nipples that point downward. If you are considering a breast lift, you should be in good health and at a stable weight.

"I had a breast lift, augmentation by Dr. Cuzalina. It took me over a year to find the right dr, and it was worth the look, and wait. The results from my surgery came out better than I could have even imagined."- S.S. / Google / Jul 04, 2019
"I recently had a breast lift and implants. Dr.Cuzalina was very informative and advised me of what would truly look the best on my body type at the consultation. He was very attentive and took the time to explain the entire process to me. I did not feel rushed at all. The day of surgery I was welcomed and felt very relaxed and comfortable. Afterwards during my follow up visits I had nothing but the best care. His entire staff is extremely nice and I felt very comfortable with everyone. I was extremely pleased with his work and also his entire office as a whole. This was the very first time that I have had any kind of surgery like this, and I was a little skeptical at first, but I’m so happy I did it. I would highly recommend this office to all my friends. Before making the decision of which surgeon to use, I met with two other surgeons to just compare.. I truly just loved Dr.Cuzalina and his entire staff so much more than any of the others I met with in the Tulsa area, and I’m so very happy that I chose Tulsa Surgical Arts and Dr.Cuzalina. They have all been so great. I’ve been extremely pleased with the entire process."- A.C. / Google / May 04, 2018

Taking about 2 – 4 hours to complete, we perform a breast lift using general anesthesia. The duration of this procedure depends on the severity of your breast sag. Generally, Dr. Cuzalina will select from two different types of incision techniques, including the anchor (inverted-T) or straight line. After making the incision, any excess skin, tissue, or fat is carefully trimmed away. The remaining skin is tightened and the breasts are lifted so they appear younger-looking and healthier. In many cases, the size of the areola is reduced, which makes it look proportionate to the rest of the breast. At this point, we can insert an implant or fat transfer. Even if you don't decide on breast implants during your breast lift, you can always schedule the procedure for a different date.
What To Expect
Compared to breast augmentation, recovery for breast lift surgery is more lengthy. After your surgery, Dr. Cuzalina will have you wear a medical compression bra to reduce swelling. Additionally, he will place a small tube near the surgical area to help with excess draining that can sometimes occur after a breast lift. After your surgery, the swelling will decrease within about a week. Dr. Cuzalina or a member of his team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure your incisions heal properly. After several months, your breasts will start to heal and look higher on your chest wall. Once your breasts have completely healed, they will look and feel perkier and natural.
