Your breasts won’t always look the way they did when you were young. Skin elasticity breaks down with aging, weight loss and pregnancy which can leave your breasts looking less than what you’d like them to. By improving the appearance of sagging or drooping, a breast lift with Dr. Thornton can help you feel like your younger, more confident self.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
There are several things that happen in a woman’s life that can cause her breasts to lose their youthful feel and appearance. Drooping and sagging will eventually get the best of the breasts. A breast lift, or mastopexy, with Dr. Thornton can help restore your silhouette for an ageless feminine figure.
Is a Breast Lift a Good Fit for You?
Next to breast augmentation, the breast lift is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for women in the United States. As years go by, your breasts may endure changes such as:
- Drooping or sagging
- Elongated or downward-pointing nipples
- Loss of shape
These problems happen with almost every woman at some point in life – whether it is because of:
- Pregnancy and breast feeding
- A significant drop in weight
- Inevitable effects of gravity and age
Whether you’re a mother looking to get back her pre-baby body or wanting to turn back the effects of time, Dr. Thornton understands the impact that changes in the breasts can take on a woman’s self confidence and her feeling of femininity. This level of compassion and care is often seen as a benefit by many women when choosing their plastic surgeon for their life-changing journey.
Women who are also experiencing a loss of shape or volume in their breasts may also benefit by pairing their breast lift with breast implants . Dr. Thornton will help outline the best treatment plan to get your breasts looking the way that you want.
What You Can Expect from Your Breast Lift Surgery And Recovery
When you choose to have your breast lift with ThorntonMD Plastic Surgery, you also receive our genuine concierge level of service and care. Dr. Thornton’s passion for providing women with the aesthetic refinement they seek for their breasts will help you to better achieve the results that you want.
For your outpatient surgery, you will be placed under general anesthesia. Dr. Thornton will then make incisions on your breasts so he can carefully excise and reshape the underlying breast tissue to create a more youthful shape. Breast implants can also be used at this point to restore lost volume. Dr. Thornton then pulls the skin tight, removing any excess or sagging areas for a firm position and feel.
