Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?
Breast lift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to lift the female breasts for a more youthful and attractive breast appearance. You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if:
- You are in good physical and emotional health
- You are unhappy about the loose, sagging, or drooping shape of your breasts
- You have nipples that are pointing downwards
- You have excessively large nipples and areolas
- You are over the age of 18 years
- You have realistic expectations about the outcome of this procedure
Breast lift surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed at Dr. Balinger’s in-office operating room or an accredited medical facility. Before the procedure, the surgeon will create markings to help guide the surgery. An anesthesiologist will then sedate the patient to ensure their comfort and safety throughout the procedure. Dr. Balinger will create an incision around the areola extending down to the breast crease. While doing this, the surgeon takes extra steps to reduce the risk of scarring. The next step is to lift and reshape the breasts. Excess skin is removed and breast tissue is tightened in order to give your breasts a firmer, lifted, and rounder appearance. Once the desired changes have been made, the surgeon will close the incisions and apply bandages to the treatment area. You will then be put in an observation room where your vitals will be monitored before you are discharged from the hospital.
