The Breast Lift Procedure
Each breast lift procedure performed by Dr. Peña is customized to meet the exact needs of the patient. When you come to our office for your initial consultation, Dr. Peña will listen closely to your concerns and desires, carefully assess your frame, and begin to customize your options to help produce optimal results.
Generally speaking, however, your breast lift procedure will likely contain the followingsteps:
- After intravenous sedation, Dr. Peña will infiltrate breast tissue with an anesthetic solution, then make incisions in the agreed upon location. He then gently removes excess skin from the breast area, including the areolas and breast creases.
- If you are having a breast lift and breast augmentation simultaneously, the implants will be inserted at this time.
- The nipples and areolas are repositioned to a higher location.
- Sutures are used to close the incisions.
The average breast lift takes two to three hours depending on technique and the amount of tissue that requires manipulation. The technique performed by Dr. Peña will depend on the amount of sagging involved and your desired results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Peña and his breast lift staff will go over the steps of surgery and explain the recovery process in detail.
