Dr. Wotowic goes beyond simply providing a “lift”; he strives to create a natural and aesthetically pleasing result that complements your contours.

What is a Breast Lift?

Commonly referred to as a breast lift or boob lift, mastopexy surgery raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.

A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Heredity

Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted.

Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery

A breast lift addresses concerns related to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens tissue, and results in a youthful, uplifted breast profile. Key benefits include:

  • Enhanced breast shape and contour
  • Correction of sagging and improved symmetry
  • Reduction of enlarged areola size
  • Improved firmness and elevation for a proportionate body figure

Are you a Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?

A breast lift is suitable for individuals experiencing early to advanced breast sagging. To assess your eligibility, a consultation with Dr. Wotowic in San Ramon is essential. Ideal candidates are those in robust health, without significant medical conditions that could impair healing or increase surgery risks. Realistic expectations regarding the surgery’s outcomes are crucial for patient satisfaction.

During the consultation, Dr. Wotowic will evaluate your health history and surgical goals. He’ll clarify the procedure, expected results, and any potential limitations. This discussion ensures you’re well-informed about the benefits and constraints of a breast lift, aiding in making an educated decision about proceeding with the surgery.

Preparing for the Procedure

Preparation for a breast lift involves several steps to ensure optimal outcomes and safety. Dr. Wotowic will guide patients through a tailored preparation plan, which typically includes:

  • Comprehensive medical evaluation and breast examination to assess suitability for the procedure.
  • Instructions on medication adjustments, including the temporary cessation of certain supplements and anti-inflammatory drugs that can increase bleeding risk.
  • Guidelines on smoking cessation, as smoking can impair healing and increase the risk of complications.
  • Preparatory measures for post-operative care, including arranging for assistance during the initial recovery period.

The Procedure

Dr. Wotowic’s breast lift surgery is done under general anesthesia for comfort and is carefully tailored to each patient’s body and personal goals.This tailored approach involves precise incisions, whose patterns vary based on the extent of lift needed and individual patient factors. Excess skin is removed, and breast tissue is sculpted to enhance contour and elevation.

Additionally, the nipple and areola are elevated to a more aesthetically pleasing position, while the remaining skin is tightened to reinforce the newly shaped breasts, ensuring a harmonious and uplifted appearance.

Recovery and Results

Recovery from a breast lift is a personalized journey. It’s important to follow Dr. Wotowic’s detailed post-surgery instructions and attend regular check-ups for a smooth healing process. Wearing a support bra is recommended to minimize swelling and maintain support as you heal. It’s also advised to limit strenuous activities, like heavy lifting and intense workouts, to aid recovery. Keeping an eye out for any signs of infection or complications is essential.

Right after the surgery, you’ll notice an improvement in the shape and position of your breasts. As the swelling subsides and your breasts settle into their new shape, you’ll fully appreciate the lasting benefits of the procedure: a more attractive breast profile and a body image that feels just right.
