Breast Lift – Weight Loss Surgery in Charlotte, NC
The Refine Institute offers breasts lifts (mastopexy) to the residents of Charlotte, Concord, and the surrounding communities in North Carolina and South Carolina.
“Limiting incision length and minimizing dissection is a more contemporary approach to mastopexy.”
– Dr. Pratt
It is not uncommon, especially following weight loss, for your breasts to become droopy and saggy. To help boost self-confidence, many patients are turning to Dr. Platt for a breast lift. A breast lift, or mastopexy, recreates a youthful profile by restoring the shape and position of your breasts. Breast lift surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, as an outpatient procedure.
The Breast Lift Procedure
Dr. Pratt will begin the breast lift by making incisions. The location of your incisions will vary based on what is needed to achieve your goals. After the incisions are made, your breasts will be repositioned in a more natural and youthful appearance. In some cases, implants, or a reduction will be necessary, all of which will be discussed during your one-on-one consultation. After your breasts are repositioned they are sutured and thoroughly bandaged. The procedure typically takes only a couple of hours to complete.
While the recovery process is different for each patient, it is common for you to experience tenderness, bruising and swollen tissue for several days. Pain medication will be given to help make you feel more comfortable during your recovery. Expect some downtime, but you should be able to return to work in about a week. To aid in the healing of your breasts, Dr. Pratt will ask you not to use your arms too much. Keep in mind, it will take several weeks to assess the final size and shape of your breasts, since swelling will need to subside.
