If you are satisfied with the size of your breasts, but wish to have a more youthful contour, you may be a candidate for a breast lift. Natural age-related changes compounded by pregnancy or weight loss can result in a breast mound that droops, lacks fullness and generally has an unsatisfactory appearance. The redundant breast skin can be removed or “tailored” and the nipple and areola can be repositioned upwards using well-concealed breast incisions. In some cases a breast implant can be used to add extra volume and assist in reshaping the breast mound.
A breast lift can be done in conjunction with breast augmentation. You can have saline or cohesive gel breast implants inserted at the time of breast lift surgery.
The procedure requires a short general anaesthetic and can be performed as day surgery at the Kamloops Surgical Centre. Recovery is typically very rapid with anticipated return to normal social activities within 2-4 days and return to most types of work within 7-10 days.
A breast lift can be performed at any age but it is generally recommended that the procedure be undertaken only when breast development has stopped. Book a consultation with Dr. Jacoby today and he can talk with you about reaching your personal goals.
