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.

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.

Surgical Technique

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.
