At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we understand that, over time, factors like pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging can lead to sagging or drooping breasts. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can rejuvenate and reshape your breasts, providing a more youthful and uplifted appearance. Learn how our plastic surgeons can restore your breast’s natural beauty with a breast lift in Newport News & Williamsburg, VA.

Restore Firmer,
More Uplifted Breasts

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that addresses sagging or drooping breasts, restoring their youthful shape and firmness. Over time, factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and aging can lead to a loss of breast volume and skin elasticity, causing the breasts to lose their natural perkiness. A breast lift helps you regain your confidence and rejuvenate the appearance of your breasts.

During a breast lift, excess skin is removed, and the underlying breast tissue is reshaped to create a more uplifted and youthful contour. Depending on your unique needs and goals, the surgery may also involve repositioning the nipples to a more aesthetically pleasing height. With the expertise of our board-certified plastic surgeons, you can achieve a firmer, more youthful breast appearance, enhancing your self-esteem and confidence.

Combine Breast Lift & Breast Augmentation

Sometimes, achieving your desired breast appearance may require more than one approach.

During surgery, excess skin is removed to lift and reshape the breasts, addressing sagging or drooping, while breast implants are placed to enhance volume and achieve the desired size and shape. The result is breasts that are not only rejuvenated and uplifted but also beautifully proportioned.

Breast Lift Surgery in Hampton Roads

During your breast lift in Newport News & Williamsburg at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, you’ll be in the capable hands of our board-certified surgeons. The procedure begins with the administration of anesthesia. You and your surgeon will have discussed the type of incision needed for your specific case, which can vary based on your individual concerns and goals.

The most common incisions include the periareolar incision, which is made around the edge of the areola, and the vertical incision that extends from the areola to the breast crease. In more extensive cases, an additional horizontal incision along the breast crease may be required, creating the anchor incision. These incisions provide access to remove excess skin and reshape the underlying tissue. Your plastic surgeon will then reposition the nipple and areola to a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing height.

Once your breasts have been reshaped and the desired contour achieved, the incisions are closed with sutures. You’ll be monitored as you wake up from anesthesia, and our team will ensure you’re comfortable and well-informed about the post-operative care needed. Over time, you’ll notice a significant improvement in breast shape and firmness.

Breast Lift Recovery Guidelines:

  • Ensure you get ample rest during the initial days following surgery.
  • Take prescribed pain medication and antibiotics as directed by your surgeon.
  • Use a post-operative surgical bra or compression garment for the recommended duration.
  • Limit strenuous activities and heavy lifting during the early recovery period.
  • Follow proper wound care and hygiene instructions to prevent infection.
  • Stay on schedule with your surgeon’s post-operative check-ups for monitoring.
  • Support the healing process with a healthy diet and adequate hydration.
  • Be vigilant for signs of infection, excessive swelling, or unusual changes.
  • Protect incisions from direct sunlight to minimize scarring and ensure proper healing.
  • Don’t hesitate to reach out to your surgeon if you have any concerns or questions.
