Regain your youth with a custom breast lift

As women age, their breasts tend to sag or stretch. To address this trend and rejuvenate your appearance, Dr. Paul Glat offers procedures such as a custom Philadelphia breast lift at his private, discreet  center.

What is a breast lift?

Unlike breast augmentation, which involves the use of breast implants, a breast lift in Philadelphia repositions and reshapes the breasts so that they appear perkier, firmer, and more youthful. Because breast lift procedures refine the shape and appearance of your natural breasts without the use of augmentation, it is a popular choice for women who are happy with their cup size but would like to undo the effects of aging, weight gain (or loss), or pregnancy and breastfeeding.

What to expect during your breast lift surgery

Before your breast lift procedure, the first step will be to have a private consultation with Dr. Glat. During this consultation, he’ll ask you about your specific goals and expectations for the procedure. He will also conduct a physical exam and ask you about your health and medical history. This will allow him to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure and to create a treatment plan that’s custom-tailored to your unique needs.

Your breast lift surgery will be performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia, which means that you’ll be asleep during the operation. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Glat will make small incisions based on the specific breast lift technique you’ve chosen. He will then begin carefully removing excess skin and tissue to reduce breast sagging and give your breasts a more youthful, perky position. He will then reposition your nipples so that they fit the new position of your breasts. When Dr. Glat is finished making your desired adjustments, he will close the incisions with sutures and apply bandages as necessary. You will then be brought to a recovery room, where our team will monitor you for a couple of hours. After that, you can have someone you trust give you a ride home.

What are the benefits of a breast lift?

The benefits of Dr. Glat’s Philadelphia breast lift surgery are numerous; women often feel rejuvenated, finding that they have increased self-confidence and self-esteem. As the impression you make on others is often based, at least in part, on your self-image, the results of breast lift surgery can have a tremendous impact on your personal life. With renewed confidence, you may be more likely to smile and carry yourself with assurance. We stress to our patients that breast lift surgery brings about not only physical changes but mental changes as well.

Am I a breast lift candidate?

Women who would like to undo the effects of pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, or the aging process are often suitable candidates for a breast lift in Philadelphia. At our Bala Cynwyd office, we are happy to educate you on the risks and benefits of this procedure so that you can determine whether breast lift surgery is right for you. Women must be strong, physically, and mentally, as a breast lift is an invasive procedure. As such, the recovery process can be both mentally and physically trying.

Experience matters.

At the plastic surgery center of Dr. Paul M. Glat, our team has extensive experience with breast lift procedures. If you are interested in restoring the look of firm, perky, youthful breasts, Dr. Glat can provide you with superb patient care.

What are my breast lift options?

Two standard techniques are used in a custom breast lift: The anchor incision and a “doughnut” mastopexy (periareolar).

Anchor incision breast lift

The most common surgical approach in breast lift surgery involves an anchor (or keyhole) incision, which runs from the breast crease and around the areola. Because of the placement and size of the incision, this technique can result in more visible scarring; however, the procedure has been proven safe and effective, as the size of the incision grants Dr. Glat superb access to the breast tissue.

Once the incision is made, Dr. Glat will carefully remove the excess skin and breast tissue while repositioning the nipples, so they appear higher on the breast. By removing excess breast tissue and repositioning the areola, drooping and sagging is significantly minimized, resulting in firmer breasts with a more refined, youthful shape.

Periareolar mastopexy

With a doughnut mastopexy, a piece of circular tissue from around the areola is removed. Because the incision is along the outer edge of the areola, there is no visible scarring on the front wall of the breast. The areola itself can be reshaped or reduced for a more attractive appearance. After the incision has been made around the nipple, excess skin and fat tissue is taken out, and the surrounding tissue is pulled taut and reattached.

This breast lift procedure has numerous benefits and is a popular choice. If you are considering breast lift surgery, we can discuss your goals with you in person and determine the most effective methodology to meet your needs. Rest assured, Dr. Glat and our team take every precaution to ensure your health, comfort, and satisfaction.

What is the recovery like after a breast lift?

After your breast lift procedure, you’ll need to rest and recover at home for approximately one to two weeks. During this time, you’ll experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness. You’ll likely be advised to wear a surgical support bra for several weeks, and Dr. Glat can prescribe you pain medication if necessary to alleviate your discomfort. While you’re recovering, you should periodically take light walks to keep your blood flowing. It’s also important to stay hydrated, get plenty of sleep, and maintain a healthy diet.

Most patients feel well enough to gradually resume their normal routines and return to work after around one to two weeks. However, you’ll need to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous physical activity for at least four to six weeks.
