Due to aging or childbirth, many women find that their breasts have begun to sag, losing their elasticity and firmness. Dr. O’Brien performs a breast lift to essentially recreate the appearance of “perky” young breasts.
What is a breast lift?
Dr. O’Brien will remove the excess skin that creates the sagging appearance, then raises the nipple so it is approximately even with the lower crease of the breast, creating the appearance of a more youthful breast.
Am I a good candidate for a breast lift?
If you are in good health, have breasts that have begun to sag and lost their elasticity and firmness, you are a good candidate. A consultation with Dr. O’Brien will determine your eligibility for a breast lift.
How long is recovery from a breast lift?
Most women are able to return to activities with restrictions between 24–48 hours. You can resume normal activities and sports, usually in four weeks.
