Breast Lift Edina
As women age, their breasts naturally begin to sag or droop due to the effects of gravity and the gradual loss of skin elasticity. Some women may develop sagging breasts and loose skin prematurely due to pregnancy, heredity, breast feeding, weight fluctuations, and other factors. With sagging breasts also comes a loss of substance or firmness, and the nipples and areolas may also point downward. Fortunately, there is a solution to all of these symptoms that will allow you to return your breasts to their youthful state. Breast lift surgery at the Minneapolis-area practice of Brian J. Kobienia M.D., F.A.C.S. can rejuvenate the breasts and even enhance them, if so desired. During a personal consultation, you and Dr. Kobienia can discuss whether the breast lift is right for you.
Breast Lift Procedure
A breast lift, technically referred to as mastopexy, is designed to elevate breasts that have begun to sag and droop. The breast lift procedure, like any other at the Minneapolis-area practice of Dr. Kobienia, begins with anesthesia. Once the patient has been anesthetized, Dr. Kobienia makes incisions underneath the breast, around the areola, and vertically downward between the areola and the underside of the breast. Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Kobienia elevates and reshapes the breasts, removing any excess skin and resizing the areolas if necessary. At this point, the incisions are closed using sutures, further tightening the skin in the process. The breast lift procedure takes between two and four hours, depending on the scope of the surgery. Recovery can be done at home, and most patients are able to return to their normal routines within one to two weeks of their breast lift.
For patients who wish to increase the size of their breasts in addition to raising them to a more youthful position, breast implants can be placed during breast lift surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Kobienia, you will have the opportunity to discuss your options and decide whether you want to combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation.
