Breast Lift

If you’re like most women, your breasts will begin to sag over time, for reasons that may include age, breastfeeding, weight changes, and genetics. Mastopexy, which is often called a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. Board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Rebecca Garza and Dr. Gus Galante perform breast lift surgery in Indiana to help women from Munster, Crown Point, and nearby cities have a firmer, more youthful breast shape.

If you live in Northwest Indiana and have questions about breast lift surgery, request a consultation using the online form, or schedule an appointment by calling (800) 721-3244.

Talking It Over

Many women seek breast lift surgery to rejuvenate the appearance of their breasts. Improvements include:

  • Raising saggy, stretched out breasts to a youthful position
  • Restoring a rounded, perky breast shape
  • Directing nipples upwards
  • Reducing the size of enlarged or stretched areolas

You can discuss your goals and expectations at your consultation. If you have pictures of the size and shape of breasts you like, bring them with you to help communicate your goals for surgery. Both Dr. Garza and Dr. Galante are very approachable and will encourage you to ask questions. Your peace of mind and confidence are of the utmost importance.

Procedure Specifics

During a breast lift, Dr. Galante or Dr. Garza elevates the breasts by removing excess skin, fat, and other tissue. They also reposition the nipples and, if desired, reduce the size of the areolas (the darker skin surrounding the nipples). They then reshape the breasts to make them rounder and more youthful-looking.

In most cases, Dr. Galante and Dr. Garza will use one of 3 common breast lift techniques:

  • Anchor-shaped incision
  • Vertical or lollipop incision
  • Concentric (doughnut) incision

You will be under general anesthesia, so you will sleep through your surgery. Dr. Galante and Dr. Garza normally perform breast lift surgery as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can return home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive you home and care for you for the first few days.

Breast Lift With Augmentation

Often a woman’s dissatisfaction with her breasts is not only due to sagginess; sagging breasts commonly don’t have enough volume to achieve a full, rounded shape. Dr. Galante or Dr. Garza may recommend combining a breast lift with breast implants. By performing breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation, patients can enjoy fuller, more youthful-looking breasts.

Although combining these 2 procedures presents additional challenges, Dr. Garza and Dr. Galante have the surgical skills and experience to achieve satisfying results while devoting special attention to patient comfort and safety. They will thoroughly review your options with you before determining the most effective combination of procedures for your unique goals. Your peace of mind and confidence in your decision is of the utmost importance to our surgeons.

After Your Breast Lift Procedure

After surgery, either Dr. Garza or Dr. Galante will dress your incisions with light bandages. They will give you detailed post-surgical instructions and prescribe medication for any discomfort. Your breasts will be sore for approximately 3 days. You will need to wear a support bra for at least a few weeks and up to a few months. You’ll need to avoid wearing underwire bras until you heal completely.

Breast lift patients should limit active movement for at least the first few days to avoid pulling the stitches. Although you can resume light activities in 7 to 10 days, you should avoid strenuous movements and heavy lifting for several weeks. As with all surgery, breast lift surgery will leave scars, but they usually fade within the first year.

It’s important to remember that a combined breast procedure requires a bit more recuperation time than a singular procedure would, and may also require the use of surgical drains. Dr. Galante and Dr. Garza want you to be comfortable and safe during your own recuperation, and they will give you specific post-op instructions prior to your surgery.
