A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a frequently performed procedure which lifts the breasts back to a more youthful position. Breast sagging may be caused from aging, pregnancy, recent weight loss, breast feeding, gravity, or heredity.
Dr. Harvey specializes in performing a minimally scarring mastopexy, also known as a LeJour lift. This breast lift will remove the excess skin to lift and tighten the breast, as well as reduce areola size, which commonly become enlarged as the breasts sag. Although the loss of nipple sensitivity is a risk, fortunately, it is less than 1%. If you are also looking to increase the fullness of your breasts, you may consider the placement of implants, also known as an Augmentation Mastopexy.
Recovery from a mastopexy is relatively simple. Patients are usually out of work for 1-3 weeks after this procedure. You can expect to be in a molded cup sports bra for 6 weeks after surgery. You will be placed on lifting restrictions for 6 weeks as well as no high impact activities, like running, for 6 weeks.
