Pregnancy, breast feeding, weight change, aging and gravity can exert force on the skin envelope of the breast, causing the breasts to sag, and become unsightly. This often leads to a poor self-image, and is especially common in women who’ve had multiple pregnancies. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, involves raising the breasts to give them a more youthful, perky shape through an anchor-like or vertical incision underneath the breast. The surgeon then removes any excess skin and repositions the nipple. In smaller-breasted women, the procedure is often combined with a breast augmentation to increase volume and improve shape. The surgeons at Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona offer the very latest techniques including periareolar and short scar mastopexy. All of these options will be discussed with you in detail during your initial consultation in order to decide which course of treatment best suits your specific needs.
Breast lift surgery does require general anesthesia, and is performed at Northern Arizona SurgiCenter, our privately owned, fully licensed, certified, and AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgery center located in the lower level of the Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona building in Flagstaff. Recovery time is generally swift, and you can expect to be driving within four to five days unless implants are used, in which case it might take slightly longer.
