Dr. Andrea Doyle performs breast lift (mastopexy) surgery at her Rhode Island plastic surgery practice for women who have experienced drooping or sagging of their breasts due to age or weight loss. This breast enhancement surgery is also especially common with mothers who are wanting to restore their pre-baby feminine figure. Dr. Doyle strives to provide her breast lift patients with unique, natural-looking results that beautifully complement their curves.
Who is breast lift surgery for?
The breast lift can be an effective procedure for women who are unhappy with sagging or drooping of their breasts. Several factors can cause the skin around the breasts to lose elasticity, such as age, pregnancy and breastfeeding, or significant weight fluctuations. Once this happens, it can be difficult or even impossible to lift the breasts to a more youthful or perky position with just diet and exercise.
Surgery is often needed to remove excess skin and reposition the breasts. When you meet with Dr. Doyle for your personal consultation, she will take a careful look at your condition to determine the best approach for your breast lift surgery. The breast lift focuses on loose skin or tissue, so Dr. Doyle may also recommend breast implants to help restore fullness to your breasts.
The breast lift procedure
Dr. Doyle is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has helped many women to restore a youthful and natural-looking figure with breast lift surgery.
Your breast lift will be customized based on your unique goals and current condition. An incision will typically be made in the inframammary crease beneath your breast. From there, Dr. Doyle will be able to reshape the underlying breast tissue for a firmer and perkier shape. She will then remove the excess skin to improve elasticity and lift the breasts to a more youthful appearance.
Breast lift recovery and results
Once your breast lift is completed, you should be able to return home that same day under the care of a loved one. You will need to avoid driving yourself for a couple of days due to the effects of the general anesthesia used during your surgery.
The results of your breast lift will be immediately noticeable, however, you will need to wear a special surgical bra or compression garment as your skin heals. You may experience some bruising, swelling, and/or redness, but these concerns will gradually fade throughout the recovery process. Most women feel well enough to return to work about a week after their breast lift, but high levels of activity and heavy lifting should be avoided for six weeks. You will be able to contact Dr. Doyle with any specific questions you may have about your breast lift recovery.
After a few short months, you will be able to look in the mirror and see the final results of your breast lift. Your breasts will appear lifted and more youthful as they flow naturally with the curves and contours of your body. Dr. Doyle’s breast lift patients will be able to enjoy long-lasting results from this popular enhancement surgery.
