Create a Perkier, More Youthful Bust with a Breast Lift
Sagging, deflated breasts can make you feel self-conscious about your figure and affect the way your bust line looks in bras or swimsuits. A breast lift can remove excess skin and reshape breast tissue for a perkier, more proportional figure. At our Chesterfield, MO, practice, Dr. Stanley L. Librach performs breast lifts for patients who have lost volume due to pregnancy, age, or weight loss. In addition, this procedure can help women who have always had drooping breasts experience a beautiful, firm bust for the first time. We recognize that every patient is different and has unique goals and preferences. Our team treats each breast lift patient as an individual and can tailor treatment to suit your needs.
What Can a Breast Lift Do?
During a breast lift, Dr. Librach can remove stretched skin, reshape breast tissue, and raise the nipple and areola to create a more youthful contour. Many women experience changes in their breasts over time due to:
- Weight loss or gain
Breast lifts can address lost skin elasticity and rejuvenate the bust line. However, this procedure does not significantly alter the size of breasts. In addition, a lift cannot round out the upper part of the bust. If you wish to make changes to the size of your breasts, you may wish to combine your lift with a breast augmentation or reduction.
Dr. Librach is a skilled plastic surgeon who can tailor your breast lift to provide the youthful bust you desire.
Planning Your Treatment
There are several different types of breast lift surgery. Dr. Librach can sit down with you and discuss your goals, preferences, and budget. Based on your unique needs, he can design a tailored treatment plan to create the bust line you desire. The right technique for you will depend on several factors, including the:
- Size and shape of your breasts
- Position and size of your areolas
- Degree of sagging
- Amount of extra skin
- Skin quality and elasticity
During your initial consultation, Dr. Librach will perform a complete physical evaluation to determine the safest and most effective technique for your unique anatomy. He can also discuss your options for sedation and anesthesia with you to help you feel confident and relaxed about the procedure.
What to Expect during the Procedure
A breast lift is a common outpatient procedure which typically takes about one to two hours to complete. Before beginning, we will administer anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable throughout treatment. Then, Dr. Librach will:
- Make several small and discreet incisions
- Lift and shape the underlying breast tissue
- Reposition the nipple and areola
- Reduce enlarged areola if necessary
- Remove excess breast tissue
- Close incisions
Regardless of the unique specifics of your procedure, Dr. Librach uses advanced techniques to minimize scarring and achieve dramatic, yet natural-looking results.
Recovery and Results
It typically takes several months to see the final results of a breast lift. However, most patients return to work about a week after surgery, depending on the type of job they have. During the first two to six weeks, you will need to wear a compression bandage or surgical bra to minimize swelling. Dr. Librach will advise you on when you can resume normal activities and how to care for your breasts as they heal.
Rejuvenate Your Breasts
Age, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations can all cause your breasts to sag and lose their youthful appearance.
