Breast Lift Houston

How does a breast lift help you feel more confident?

The look and appearance of a women’s breast is essential to a woman’s confidence. It is also essential to how she feels when wearing clothes, bras or swimsuits. A women’s breast can change over time because of age, pregnancy or fluctuations in weight. Because of these reasons, the breast tissue begins to lose its elasticity and shape. A breast lift involves tightening and removal of the excess tissue to reshape and support the new breast.

Sometimes, if the areola becomes enlarged over time and a breast lift can also help minimize and reduce the size of it.  This procedure can boost your confidence, bring back the youthful shape of your breast, and flatter your figure.

What is a breast lift?

A breast lift is also known as a Mastopexy. This procedure is not designed to add volume in the way that an augmentation or implant would. Instead, a breast lift is designed to lift a breast that has lost its roundness or firmness over time and bring it back to a natural position.

Dr. Payne has been trained in microsurgical and breast reconstruction techniques, and is able to utilize these techniques to work on even the smallest details of the breast. He is passionate about perfection, even to the smallest detail.

What to expect during a breast lift surgery:

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and Dr. Payne will meticulously reshape and lift the tissue of the breast to improve firmness and the profile of the breast. The nipple and areola are also lifted to a more natural, more youthful height and to balance with the size and shape of the new breast.

Larger areolas are reduced by removing skin at the perimeter. After your breasts are reshaped and excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened.

Some of the incision lines can be concealed in the natural contours of the breast. Incision lines are permanent, but in most cases will fade and begin to improve over time and with proper care of the area.  Dr. Payne will recommend scar creams and post procedure creams that will also help the area heal and the scars fade.

What do breast lift scars look like?

Once the incision area heals, the scar will be barely visible. Proper care of the area will help to reduce scarring as well. There are three common incision patterns: Around the areola, around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease, and around the areola, vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease (anchor).

What to expect after surgery?

Immediately following surgery you will be wearing special garments, tape, or a silicone bra to keep the breasts secure and protected while healing.

The final results of your breast lift will appear over the next few months as breast heals and swelling goes down. The results of your breast lift surgery will be long-lasting. This procedure can be a life changing event as it can boost a patient’s confidence with a more flattering figure!
