The natural aging process and various life events can change your breasts’ shape and firmness as time passes. If you have noticed that your breasts have started to sag or your nipples are drooping, you may be interested in undergoing a breast lift procedure. A breast lift is a surgical procedure that can help improve the shape and position of your breasts, giving them a more youthful and lifted appearance. At Emmett Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO, we offer breast lift surgery to help you achieve your desired results. With our state-of-the-art facilities and individualized approach, we strive to provide the highest satisfaction and confidence in your breast lift journey.

The Benefits of Getting a Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery raises the breasts and returns them to a firmer, more youthful shape. This is done by removing excess skin, tightening the surrounding tissue, and reshaping the breast contour. A breast lift is often a solo procedure, but you can also combine it with breast augmentation or breast reduction. Note that where breast augmentation increases breast volume, a breast lift focuses on improving shape.

A breast lift can correct several concerns, including:

  • Flat breasts
  • Downturned nipples
  • Enlarged areolas
  • Asymmetric breasts
  • Wide breasts

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Emmett will perform a physical evaluation, take stock of your medical history, and confirm you are eligible for a safe and successful procedure.

A Breast Lift is a Great Choice If:

  • Your nipples are below the fold.
  • Your nipples are not at least halfway up the arm bone.
  • The skin from the areola to the breast fold needs shortening.
  • You are active and fit overall.

Taking the First Steps

Your breast lift journey begins with a consultation where you meet one-on-one with Dr. Emmett in a private, comfortable space. She will ask some questions about your medical history, examine your breasts, and talk with you about your aesthetic goals. This is also your opportunity to ask questions about the surgery, recovery, or results. Dr. Emmett often presents multiple treatment options, allowing you to make an informed choice about your surgical care.

Meet Our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Jennifer Emmett is well-known throughout the Denver, CO, area for her clinical skill as well as her approachable, down-to-earth manner. Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Emmett is well-qualified to provide high standards of care, always promoting patient safety, comfort, and outcomes. Dr. Emmett is particularly well-known for her skill in achieving natural-looking breast augmentation, resulting in an incredibly high level of patient satisfaction.

The Breast Lift Process Explained

When you arrive for treatment, our surgical team will take you to your private room and administer local anesthesia and IV sedation to promote your comfort and safety.

Dr. Emmett will make small incisions, often under the breast fold, then lift the tissue and skin. Depending on your treatment plan, Dr. Emmett may remove excess skin, tighten surrounding tissue, or create pockets for breast implant placement (if needed). The breast lift process may take up to three hours, though the timeline will vary considerably depending on whether you have any other procedures done simultaneously.

Recovery and Aftercare

Following your breast lift, you will likely need three or four days to rest and heal. We recommend skipping strenuous exercise or any other activity that elevates your heart rate for 14 days. Also, steer clear of weight lifting, push-ups, or pull-ups for a full six weeks.

You may anticipate some discomfort during the first couple days of recovery, but it is usually mild and manageable with either prescription or over-the-counter medications. Dr. Emmett will place surgical tape over the incisions and give you full instructions for aftercare.

Other Considerations

Can A Breast Lift Be Performed in Combination With Other Procedures?

A breast lift is commonly paired with breast augmentation or breast reduction to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. A breast lift may also be combined with breast implant removal to address the space left behind after implant removal.

You can choose breast lift surgery as part of a mommy makeover, a comprehensive procedure that involves different treatments to restore your breasts and tummy at the same time.

Are There Any Risks Involved?

While all surgical procedures come with some level of risk, you can mitigate the risks associated with a breast lift by choosing a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Jennifer Emmett.

How Long Do the Results Last?

By maintaining a healthy lifestyle and carefully adhering to post-operative guidelines, you can potentially sustain the results of your breast lift for a long time.

Is it Worth It?

Only you can decide whether it is worth it to have a breast lift performed. However, note that virtually all women who get this surgery from Emmett Plastic Surgery express high satisfaction with their results.
