Breast Lift Houston
A breast lift (aka mastopexy) is indicated for women with sagging breasts, but without excessive breast tissue. Sagging breasts can occur with weight loss, pregnancy, and aging. The type of lift and scars will be based on the amount of lift needed. Smaller lifts typically require scars around the areola, whereas larger lifts may require incisions extending to the lower aspect of the breast. A breast lift can be combined with an augmentation if an increase in breast size is desired.
Surgery is typically performed under general anesthetic and surgical time lasts between 2 – 3 hours. Most patients experience pain and swelling. Patients typically can return to work in one week.
Additional surgical risks will be discussed in consultation.
Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carpin to discuss if you are a surgical candidate, and to review the risks, benefits, alternatives, and expected outcomes of the procedure.
