A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes, including loss of skin elasticity, can result from pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, and gravity. Heredity may also be a factor, and a woman in her teens may experience loose, sagging breast tissue. Breasts that have lost their firm, uplifted contours can affect a woman’s self-image and confidence.If you want to restore the firmness and shape of your breasts, then a breast lift may be right for you. In general, a breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple) has become enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift rejuvenates the female figure with a breast profile that is more youthful, uplifted and firm.
Where do I Begin?
A consultation with Dr. Sena is the first step to learn how a breast lift can improve your breast contours. A consultation is designed to fully educate you about breast augmentation in a non-pressured environment and will include:
• A discussion of your goals and an evaluation of your individual case
• The options available in breast lift surgery
• The likely outcomes of a breast lift and any risks or potential complications
• The prescribed course of treatment recommended by Dr. Sena
Dr. Sena will also answer any questions you may have.
What to Expect
A breast lift may be performed in Da local facility. The decision for anesthesia will be based on the requirements of your specific procedure and considerations of patient and surgeon preference. Dr. Sena and the assisting staff will fully attend to your comfort and safety.
Once your procedure is completed, dressing or bandages will be applied to your incisions, and an elastic bandage or support bra will minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood that may collect. Before being released following surgery, you and an accompanying family member, friend or caregiver will be given specific instructions that may include:
• How to care for the breasts following surgery
• Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection
• Specific changes at the surgical site or in overall health
• When to follow up with Dr. Sena
Results and Outlook
The final results of your breast lift will appear over the next few months as breast shape and position continue to settle. Incision lines are permanent, but they most likely won’t be visible even under your favorite bathing suit.Over time, your breasts can change due to aging and gravity. Your new breast profile is best maintained by maintaining your weight, a healthy lifestyle and proper support of your now firm and rejuvenated breasts.
