If your breasts droop, then turn to Dr. Harold E. Beam, M.D., who offers breast lifts to patients in Glastonbury, New Britain, Hartford, New Haven and the surrounding areas of Connecticut. Return your breast back to their youthful perkiness and buoyancy with a breast lift procedure from Dr. Beam.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is surgery designed to “lift” sagging breasts. It differs from an augmentation in that it does not increase the size or shape of the breasts but instead is intended to give them a more youthful appearance. A woman’s breasts may naturally sag over time due to pregnancy, loss of skin elasticity, or even weight loss. A breast lift can help restore a more youthful appearance, counteracting the effects of aging, gravity and weight loss on breasts which can cause them to begin to droop. You can go from droopy to perky with Dr. Beam and a skillfully performed breast lift.
What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?
Many women who have had a considerable amount of weight loss and those who have been pregnant often look for ways to restore the youthful look to their breasts. A breast lift—also called a mastopexy–can help these women restore a rounder, more youthful shape to their breasts. If you want to give your breasts a more youthful appearance, a breast lift can be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation with natural-looking results, so schedule your consultation with Dr. Beam today!
What is the Procedure for a Breast Lift?
Depending on the size and shape you desire for your breasts, there are many options for your breast lift surgery. For a small amount of sagging (ptosis), the incision only needs to be made around the areola. For a more moderate amount of ptosis, the incision is made around the areola as well as down the front of the breast. For the most severe cases of sagging, there will be an incision made around the areola, down the front of the breast, and in the breast crease. Many patients choose to have breast implants in conjunction with a breast lift if they are looking to lift and increase the fullness of their breasts. At your initial consultation, Dr. Beam can discuss all of your options with you to decide which procedure is right for your needs.
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?
The cost for breast lift surgery depends on the severity of the sagging of your breasts and other factors, as your cost can also change should you choose to have a breast lift and breast implants. Dr. Beam and his staff will discuss all pricing and financing options with you at your initial consultation.
What is the Recovery After Breast Lift Surgery?
Dr. Beam will give you ample information before your treatment about the recovery process. He will also prescribe an oral pain medication to help deal with the discomfort. Most patients can return to normal activities after about three weeks. Your breasts may feel slightly swollen after your surgery. Wearing a good support bra is needed to help speed healing. You may also need to do the following:
- Changing bandages from time to time
- Taking medication to help with discomfort
- Scheduling a follow-up appointment to check your progress
