Breast Lift with Dr. Heil

Premier Plastic Surgery has been home to a variety of plastic surgery procedures for the Pittsburgh, PA and Wexford, PA areas for years, including breast lift surgery, breast augmentation, breast reduction, gynecomastia surgery, and more.

Whether you are seeking a breast lift surgery as a result of pregnancy, weight fluctuation, aging, hereditary reasons, or simply gravity, we have the solutions to improve your life and your confidence. In the last 20 years, the popularity of breast lift surgery has increased by 70 percent, which serves as a testament to the efficacy of these procedures.

What Is A Breast Lift?

The technical term for a breast lift is mastopexy, which involves a series of incisions that are designed to remove excess skin from the breast area, ultimately rejuvenating and lifting the breasts and making them more symmetrical, youthful, and appealing. Typically, breast lift surgeries will also reduce the size of the areola if it has become enlarged over time. This simple procedure can have extraordinary results, restoring the confidence you are seeking through firmer and more precisely contoured breasts.

Life-changing results are often achieved by repositioning the nipples in relation to the shape and size of the breasts. Sometimes, the nipples will begin to turn downward over time, taking away from the shape you may have once had. This can be fixed with a simple outpatient breast lift surgery from Premier Plastic Surgery.

What Can I Expect To Happen Before And After My Breast Lift Surgery?

Our pre-op process involves either general or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, which will keep you from feeling pain during the procedure. A normal breast lift surgery only takes about two hours, which means that you should be able to return home the same day.

After the procedure, we will provide you with a surgical bra that will facilitate a fast and safe healing process. You should expect moderate levels of swelling and soreness after the surgery, but these symptoms should subside after a few days. Additionally, pain medication can be prescribed to reduce uncomfortable soreness. Within about a week’s time, you should be able to return to everyday life and enjoy your newly rejuvenated figure.

What Occurs During The Consultation Process?

The consultation process differs depending upon whether you are local or inquiring from longer distances. As an experienced practice of plastic surgery, people from all over the country seek our professional care. If you are inquiring from a significant distance, we can set up a completely private, secure network to enable a video consultation.

Breast Lift FAQ

Before committing to a breast lift surgery, it is important to take time to consider your desired results. These procedures, while vastly beneficial, should be carefully considered before moving forward. There are a series of questions that you should ask yourself prior to scheduling your breast lift surgery with Premier Plastic Surgery.

Am I happy with the size and fit when wearing a bra?

This may be the first question you ask yourself before doing any research into breast lift surgery. If you are unhappy with the way that your breasts fit into a bra, whether it be the size, fit, shape, or any other factor, a breast lift may be the right move. We offer a variety of different techniques to give you the look and feel that you desire.

Are my breasts asymmetrical or oddly shaped?

If your confidence has been shaken because your breasts appear to be mismatched in size or shape, this procedure is for you. One of the most common reasons women seek out breast lift surgery is because one breast is larger, higher, or simply does not match the other. If your appearance has been hindered due to asymmetrical breasts, consider allowing us to provide a solution with a breast lift.

Do my nipples appear to point downward?

If the years have resulted in a gradual downturn of your nipples, a breast lift is the perfect fix. Generally caused by sagging breasts, downward pointing nipples is a common issue that pushes women to consider breast lift surgeries. By reshaping and lifting the breasts, we can fix this problem and return your nipples to the outward direction they once had.

Do my areolas sit below the crease of my breasts?

Sometimes the areolas will stretch far enough to pass the crease at the bottom of the breast. This is not desirable for most women and is generally a great reason to consider a breast lift. By removing excess skin and lessening the size of the areola, Dr. Heil can give you the beautiful, perky breasts that you desire.

Each of these issues, along with others, can be reconciled through a breast lift surgery or other form of breast rejuvenation procedure. At Premier Plastic Surgery, we will hear all your concerns to establish the breast lift plan that will leave you feeling more beautiful and confident.

Will a significant weight loss warrant a breast lift?

Women who have gone through a recent transformation via drastic weight loss should also consider breast lift surgery, as the shape and appearance of your breasts may have had an adverse reaction to the change in volume. At Premier Plastic Surgery, we can give your breasts the proper treatment to match your new figure.
