What are Breast Lifts?

Your breasts can lose their youthful voluptuousness and firmness because of numerous factors, such as age, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or nursing. Unlike breast augmentation, a breast lift in Boston focuses on reshaping and repositioning existing breast tissue for a perkier, more youthful appearance. It addresses sagging or drooping breasts without implants, restoring their natural contour and firmness. It’s a transformative procedure that enhances confidence and rejuvenates your silhouette without adding volume. If you’re embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts, please explore your breast lift options in Boston, MA, today.

You’re a candidate for a breast lift if:

  • Your breasts are sagging or loose
  • Your breasts look flat or deflated
  • Your nipples are pointing downwards
  • Your breasts are drooping downwards due to pregnancy
  • Your breasts are hanging lower than your chest
  • Your beasts are no longer bouncy, uplifted, or youthful

Dr. Boustany’s personalized approach to a breast lift

Sagging, deflated, or flattened breasts can be a source of considerable self-consciousness and anxiety to some women. Dr. Boustany believes sagging breasts are perfectly natural, and you shouldn’t feel embarrassed. However, if you believe youthful and lifted breasts will make you happier, she is thrilled to accompany you on your journey. Dr. Boustany performs a personalized breast lift in Boston based on your breasts’ unique conditions and your cosmetic goals.

However, each individual is unique, so the surgical techniques should also be unique. Instead of following a cookie-cutter treatment plan, Dr. Boustany curates a personalized treatment plan for you. Your breast lift may involve repositioning the nipples to the center of the breast mount or trimming excess skin from overly large areolas. Depending on your unique condition, the surgeon may also prefer different incision styles.

What happens during the breast lift?

Your breast lift will be performed at our state-of-the-art Boston hospital under the care of our Harvard-affiliated healthcare professionals. Breast lift is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. The surgeon will make incisions according to your unique goals and concerns. The incision might be made around the areola, or it might go down to your breast crease, or it might be horizontal along your breast crease.

Depending on the degree of sagging, the procedure might involve repositioning the nipple to the center of the breast mound. The surgeon may also reduce the size of overly large areolas to make them more proportionate to your breasts. Furthermore, excess skin will be removed to help you achieve a lifted and tighter appearance. Finally, the incisions will be closed using sutures, surgical tape, or medical adhesives.

What’s the recovery like after a breast lift?

You’ll experience mild swelling and bruising after the surgery for a few days. You’ll also have to wear bandages and surgical bras for a few days to protect your newly-reshaped breasts. Dr. Boustany will prescribe medications to prevent infections, facilitate healing, and reduce discomfort. You must follow her instructions accurately to ensure optimal healing. It is our goal to provide you with the best results possible from a breast lift Boston has to offer. The incision marks will be bright initially, but they’ll soon fade into a dull pink and become almost imperceptible.

During the first days after the surgery, you’ll need to sleep on your back and avoid pulling clothes over your head. You can instead wear button-down shirts. You can resume normal activities and work within a day or two, but you must avoid strenuous physical activities for at least six weeks. Furthermore, you should maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain the results.
