Mastopexy | Breast Lift | El Paso
The Breast Lift is ideal for women with sagging breasts due to past pregnancies, genetics or aging. The procedure is intended to create an elevated, more youthful breast contour.
Breast Lifts are done as an outpatient procedure, under general anesthesia. The design of the incisions varies depending on the patients’ wishes and the degree of lift needed. During the procedure the breast is reshaped to a more pleasing contour.
As women age, their breasts may sag somewhat. This can be exacerbated by pregnancy or nursing weight fluctuation. In these situations, many women enjoy beneficial results from a breast lift or “mastopexy.” In this procedure, the skin of the breast is tightened to return the breast to a more youthful shape, firmness, and position. Sometimes an implant is placed as part of the procedure to increase breast volume. Incisions are usually around the nipple and sometimes extend down to the underside of the breast. There are a lot of options in breast lift surgery, and at Envy Aesthetic Center we will work with you to choose the approach that will create the best results. During your consultation Dr. Gonzalez will discuss recommendations for the type of incision to use and the possible benefits of including an implant as part of the procedure. The procedure is usually done as an outpatient, under general anesthesia. Most patients return to work about a 5 to 7 after surgery. There may be some bruising for a week or so and some swelling for a few weeks following surgery.
