If you are considering having a breast lift procedure done, be sure to consult with an Orlando cosmetic surgeon. You will want to ensure that your
desired goal is clearly explained to your surgeon. During this initial consultation, all of your previous health information, as well as other important
background history, is collected. Between your previous history and your desired goals, your plastic surgeon will explain to you how he/she will help
you reach satisfaction. He/she should also explicitly explain what will happen during the breast lift procedure. It is important that you are
educated and very comfortable with the whole process.
The breast lift procedure itself is fairly quick—it typically only takes about three hours to perform. Breast lifts are performed either in a hospital,
an outpatient surgery center, or a doctor’s personal operating room. During the breast lift surgery,
the plastic surgeon will reposition the nipple to a higher location. In order to do so, the surgeon marks the appropriate location beforehand. The
doctor will make an incision in one of three areas: around the areola, around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, or around the areola,
down the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease. The type of incision made is determined by the results you desire. After the incision,
the breast tissue is lifted, the nipple and areola are repositioned, and any excess skin is removed.
Once the procedure is finished, your plastic surgeon will close your incision and proceed with post-operation care. The size of the scar from the incision
truly varies from person to person. During your initial consultation with your surgeon, they will recommend the incisions that best fit your anatomy.
Some of the incision lines from the breast lift will be hidden naturally by the shape of your breasts, but others may still be visible. All of this
will be discussed with you beforehand to ensure you are pleased with the results.
