Breast Lift/Mastopexy

Plastic surgery is a personal and important decision. Dr. Simmonds wants to assure you that he and his staff are committed to providing personalized and quality care. We welcome the opportunity to give you the information you need to make the best possible decision.

Unfortunately some women's breasts may tend to sag over time. This may be secondary to gravity or due to childbirth. A breast lift or mastopexy is performed to raise and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning remaining breast tissue and areolas/nipples. Some women may find it necessary to have the breast implants in order to gain the fullness in the upper chest that is desired. Scars on the breast may be as minimal as a scar just around the areola (nipple), although some may experience more extensive scarring due to need for extensive surgery of the breasts.

The initial recovery phase is from three to seven days. Full recovery takes approximately six weeks. Activities may need to be limited during this six week period. The actual breast shape will change over the first six to twelve months. This is a very normal process as your body adjusts to new more shapely breasts.

Dr. Simmonds requires a baseline mammogram before surgery to evaluate your breast tissue before Surgery. Dr. Simmonds will go over your health history and any medical conditions you may have. As with any Surgery, risks and benefits will be discussed.

Following Dr. Simmonds' instructions, before and after surgery, minimize these risks. Some instructions include stop smoking, avoiding certain medications, and arranging to have help following your surgery. It is our goal to make you happy with your results and for you to feel a new sense of self confidence with your new body image.
