00:00:05.160 --> 00:00:10.820 A breast lift, or mastoplexy, is designed to raise the breast and tighten the skin 00:00:10.850 --> 00:00:16.180 to give your breast a better shape and a more perky look and appearance to it. 00:00:16.210 --> 00:00:19.620 Most women, over time, their breasts begin 00:00:19.650 --> 00:00:22.900 to sag, either due to gravity or thinning of the skin. 00:00:22.920 --> 00:00:27.340 A breast lift can rejuvenate the way your breasts look and the way you fit into 00:00:27.370 --> 00:00:31.980 clothing and the way you feel about your overall body and symmetry and harmony. 00:00:32.010 --> 00:00:37.260 When we do a breast lip surgery or mastoplexy, we like to tailor our approach 00:00:37.290 --> 00:00:42.420 to the specific patient and what their goals are and their expectations are with 00:00:42.450 --> 00:00:45.460 the type of technique that we are going to use. 00:00:45.490 --> 00:00:49.060 We offer multiple different techniques for breast lift surgery. 00:00:49.090 --> 00:00:51.180 Not all breast lifts are the same. 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:54.300 Sometimes you need to also use a breast implant. 00:00:54.330 --> 00:00:57.260 Sometimes you need to also do fat grafting. 00:00:57.290 --> 00:00:59.600 Sometimes you need to reduce the size of 00:00:59.630 --> 00:01:05.100 the breast and reduce the overall weight of the breast. 00:01:05.130 --> 00:01:09.180 Sometimes you need to do a less invasive procedure. 00:01:09.200 --> 00:01:10.930 That's the approach that we like to take 00:01:10.960 --> 00:01:13.850 when we're doing mastoplexy and breast lift surgery. 00:01:13.880 --> 00:01:17.620 There are different techniques when we're doing breast lift surgery. 00:01:17.650 --> 00:01:20.460 Sometimes we reinforce the breast lift 00:01:20.490 --> 00:01:27.740 with a biologic mesh and that is designed to enhance the longevity of the results. 00:01:27.770 --> 00:01:30.660 Over time, we don't stop gravity and all 00:01:30.690 --> 00:01:34.850 breast reconstruction or breast lift surgery will tend to change. 00:01:34.880 --> 00:01:36.260 It will sag. 00:01:36.290 --> 00:01:42.540 But when we use additional procedures like mesh or a breast implant, we can improve 00:01:42.570 --> 00:01:46.020 the overall result and the longevity of the result. 00:01:46.050 --> 00:01:49.700 A breast lift surgery is very quick and easy recovery. 00:01:49.730 --> 00:01:54.380 Most patients don't report any significant amount of pain or discomfort. 00:01:54.400 --> 00:01:56.290 As a matter of fact, most of our patients 00:01:56.320 --> 00:02:00.180 do not even use prescription pain medication after a breast lift surgery. 00:02:00.210 --> 00:02:04.780 Most people will feel fine one or two days after the surgery. 00:02:04.810 --> 00:02:09.540 You take off from work about one week, but you're back to your normal activities 00:02:09.570 --> 00:02:12.820 after about two weeks time, including going to the gym. 00:02:12.850 --> 00:02:15.260 Very often we combine a breast lift 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:20.760 surgery with an abdominal contouring surgery, such as liposuction or a tummy 00:02:20.790 --> 00:02:23.940 tuck, and this is often referred to as a mommy makeover. 00:02:23.970 --> 00:02:25.660 A breast lift operation is a very 00:02:25.690 --> 00:02:29.640 versatile surgery and can be combined with other techniques at the same time.
