A breast lift can improve the shape and “perkiness” of your breasts. Our focus is to give you as natural a result as possible, while taking into account your specific desires. Dr. MacLennan will use her decades of experience to give appropriate recommendations for your individual situation.
A mastopexy removes skin and rearranges breast tissue. The nipple is moved upward, the extra skin is removed, and the sagging breast tissue is rearranged and moved up. Breast lift can raise sagging breast tissue, but it can’t raise the breast itself (the breast footprint) up higher on the chest wall.
In many patients, the final shape is improved with liposuction along the sides of the chest and in front of the armpit. This causes some bruising and is usually the main area of discomfort.
If you’re comfortable with your breast size but would like to be lifted or reshaped, a mastopexy alone may help. A mastopexy alone can increase breast projection but it can’t improve fullness in the upper part of the breast. To improve roundness or fullness in the upper part of the breast, a breast implant can be added to the lift.
While recovery from breast lift surgery is surprisingly easy, you’ll need time to recover. It takes about two weeks to get back to normal activities of daily living and about four weeks to get back to unrestricted activity. Women who have small children may need some help for a couple of weeks to avoid too much heavy lifting.
I could not have chosen better than Dr. MacLennan. From the first meeting I felt I could trust this physician; that we were a team discussing various options in order to determine what was right for me. She was frank about the limitations of surgery and the potential areas where there could be problems in healing or outcome. She is meticulous in covering all the points and ensuring I knew what was entailed. You could not be in better hands. She is a skilled surgeon and an artist in her work.
