A breast lift could be the perfect procedure to help you improve the sagging, drooping appearance of your breasts. Performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Layton, a breast lift in Kerrville can immediately and dramatically enhance your figure, as well as your self-confidence.
The breast lift procedure–also known as a mastopexy–surgically removes the excess, unwanted skin on your breasts. This procedure also raises and reshapes your breasts, returning them to a more youthful and attractive position without requiring implants. Breast lifts are safe procedures offering long-lasting results.
Your breast lift journey starts with an initial consultation with our experienced medical staff in Kerrville, who will determine if you are a suitable candidate for a breast lift and whether it is the best option. The ideal candidate for breast lift surgery should be in good health, with no chronic diseases or pre-existing medical conditions.
During your consultation, our medical team will also explain the pre-and post-operative instructions for your surgery. Given that this is a surgical procedure, you will be expected to follow general surgical pre-operative procedures like refraining from smoking, using nicotine products, taking recreational drugs, consuming alcohol, and taking certain medications, including Aspirin or other blood thinners, to reduce the risk of complications.
During your procedure, our trained medical team will administer anesthesia. Dr. Layton carefully removes your excess, saggy skin through careful incisions. Your nipples will also be repositioned to a more youthful, raised position. Immediately after the surgery, your breasts will appear fuller, firmer, and perkier. Over time, incision scars will fade or disappear.
Our expert medical team is committed to helping you make the best recovery. First and foremost, we recommend that you arrange for a trusted friend or family member to pick you up from your procedure appointment. For the first few weeks following your surgery, Dr. Layton recommends that you avoid vigorous exercise or movement: your recovery should consist of ample rest and relaxation.
Additionally, avoiding lifting your arms or working out your chest muscles for the first two weeks is crucial. Our medical team recommends following a healthy, balanced diet and engaging in an active lifestyle to keep your results looking beautiful. We recommend that you visit our clinic for regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
Though our breast lift procedure is a wonderful solution to lift and contour the breasts, this surgery, on its own, is not designed to increase your breast size. The breast lift procedure only removes excess, saggy skin, resulting in breasts that appear fuller, firmer, shapelier, and more contoured.
If you wish to increase your breast size simultaneously while you obtain your breast lift, Dr. Layton will recommend performing a combination breast lift and breast augmentation surgery to achieve your desired results. Combining surgery will reduce potential health risks and recovery time.
Dr. Layton and our plastic surgery staff are highly experienced in breast surgeries, including breast enhancement, breast augmentation, and breast reduction. Our plastic surgeon will help you reshape and rejuvenate your breasts to give you the gorgeous, youthful silhouette of your dreams.
