Breast Lift (Mastopexy) Baton Rouge
A mastopexy or breast lift is a surgical procedure that elevates the breasts to improve the appearance and contour. It is ideal for sagging breasts, breasts that have lost shape and volume, low nipple position, down pointing nipples and areolas, and breast asymmetry. Breasts change over time due to changes in weight, pregnancy/breastfeeding, aging, and genetics. A breast lift will not increase the size of your breasts, but will lift your breasts, increase projection, and create a more youthful shape. In a good candidate, this procedure can be performed in combination with breast augmentation surgery to increase breast size.
In our consultation, we will discuss an evaluation of your overall health, perform a breast examination, take photographs for your medical record, and discuss risks, benefits, and potential complications of breast lift surgery. We will also review before and after photos of other patients who have undergone breast lift surgery.
I perform my breast lift/mastopexy in our outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia in combination with local anesthetics. Most of my patients are very comfortable after surgery and often take over the counter medications or very short term pain medication.
