When it comes to breast shape, time is not on our side. Almost every woman will eventually notice a gradual loss in the size, shape or feel of their breasts. As bodies age, breasts will sag, droop, soften or flatten out. Even if the breast volume stays the same, the firmness is lost. Dr. Johnson understands this, and in most cases, a breast lift, or mastopexy, can rejuvenate, re-shape and firm the breast. Combined with a breast augmentation or reduction, dramatic improvements in your appearance will result. A breast lift and reduction together can reduce a breast that is overly large or stretched.
It can also reduce the size of a stretched areola, the darker, pink skin surrounding the nipple. Even breasts that are dissimilar in shape can be adjusted to appear younger, healthier and rejuvenated. Breast lift surgery involves a minimal scar technique that Dr. Johnson has refined over the last several years.
At the Center for Aesthetic Surgery, a breast lift may be performed under general anesthesia or twilight sedation for your comfort. You will be up and about a day or two following surgery. Dr. Johnson will send you home in a garment fit to your new shape and size. He and his staff will be available to you throughout the recovery process.
