Many factors impact the firmness and elevation of the breast tissue. Gravity, aging, pregnancy, weight gain/loss and breastfeeding all can change the appearance of the breasts. Over time, the skin can stretch and the tissue can sag lower on the chest. To restore firmer, elevated breasts, mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, is the ideal solution. Dr. Harry Salinas at HMS Plastic Surgery offers spectacular outcomes from his breast lift procedures at our center in Miami, FL.
The goal of breast lift surgery is to remove excess or stretched skin and reposition the breast tissue higher on the chest. Many women have breasts that are elongated with the nipples pointing downward versus forward. Mastopexy or mammoplasty can rejuvenate the breasts, making them higher and firmer, with nipples and areolas that are centered and facing forward.
Experienced Mastopexy Surgeon
Dr. Harry Salinas is a highly respected and board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. His extensive expertise in reshaping and lifting the breasts is evident in the beautiful outcomes he has achieved for his breast lift surgery patients. Dr. Salinas utilizes the latest techniques to discreetly hide incisions and scars while rejuvenating the breast skin and tissue.
Breast lift surgery does not increase the size of the breasts, but they can appear larger once the tissue is elevated and reshaped higher on the chest. Some patients may opt to have an augmentation performed with their mastopexy to create larger, fuller breasts. This can be achieved with saline or silicone breast implants in various shape and sizes.
Recovery from breast lift surgery is typically about 5-7 days for most patients. There may be some swelling and bruising that lasts for 2-3 weeks, but most patients can return to work in about one week.
