Is a breast lift right for you?
If your breasts have started to droop due to pregnancy, breastfeeding or the natural aging process, an expertly done lift can rejuvenate your chest and restore your sensual confidence.
In general, a breast lift may be in your best interest if you:
- Possess loose and/or sagging breast skin
- Have lost a substantial amount of breast volume
- Have large nipples and areolas
- Want to achieve a more youthful breast contour
- Possess nipples that point downward
Breasts that have begun to sag and lose their shape can have a profound impact on your femininity and confidence. When this occurs, a procedure with one of the top providers of the breast lift Houston has to offer, Dr. Sukkar, can eliminate any drooping and restore the beautiful and perky chest you deserve.
An Overview of the
Your Houston breast lift will begin with Dr. Sukkar administering general anesthesia, which will ensure you are completely asleep and safe throughout the procedure. From there, your surgery will be entirely customized, based on the severity of your sagging and your unique cosmetic goals.
For example, if very minimal sagging is present, you may qualify for a crescent or mini breast lift. In this case, Dr. Sukkar will make an incision along the top of the areola, before removing a crescent-shaped wedge of tissue to elevate the breasts and restore their perky and youthful position.
If you’re having a breast lift and a breast augmentation, a periareolar lift may be in your best interest. In this case, Dr. Sukkar will make an incision around the areola. Through that opening, he will remove excess breast skin and elevate the areola to a higher position, before placing your implants.
If you’re suffering from moderate to severe sagging breasts, Dr. Sukkar may recommend a lollipop lift. With this approach, Dr. Sukkar will create an incision around the areola that also extends down to the bottom crease of the breast. In this way, he’s able to remove a substantial amount of excess skin, producing a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your breasts.
And finally, if you’re suffering from very severe sagging, Dr. Sukkar will likely recommend a full mastopexy. To perform this procedure, he will make a large incision around the areola that extends down to the breast crease and along the breast fold. Through that opening, he will remove all of the excess breast skin and tissue, before tightening the remaining skin to ensure a flawless end result.
Regardless of the specific technique used, Dr. Sukkar will sculpt and shape your breasts until he’s recreated your perky and youthful chest. He will then carefully close the incisions to minimize any scarring, before sending you home to begin the healing process.
Once your breast lift is complete and you’ve begun the healing process at home, you can expect to experience some mild pain that should disappear within a few days. In the meantime, you can manage any discomfort with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Sukkar.
During the initial recovery period, it’s normal to experience some bruising and swelling in the treatment area. To allow your body to heal, you should stay home and limit your activities for about one week. In about three weeks, you’ll be able to return to your normal daily routine without any activity restrictions.
