Patients seeking the best Nashville plastic surgeon for breast lifts will find that Dr. Burgdorf has extensive expertise at breast procedures.
Breast lift surgeries are complex operations that should be performed by properly qualified plastic surgeons. Dr. Burgdorf is a board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon who specializes in all aspects of breast rejuvenation procedures, including breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction.
The effects of aging, weight loss, gravity, and pregnancy can profoundly affect the appearance of a woman’s breasts by causing them to stretch. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their firmness and begin to sag. Nashville plastic surgeon Dr. Burgdorf performs breast lift surgery (mastopexy) to help improve the shape of a woman’s sagging breasts as well as restore the nipple-areolar complex.
WILL I NEED A BREAST LIFT WITH IMPLANTS?
Breast lift surgery will correct breast sagging and loose skin and can also improve the look of the nipples. However, depending on the amount of breast tissue a patient has before a breast lift, a breast implant may also be needed to restore volume loss. Breast implants may improve both the volume and shape of the breasts. After the excess skin and breast tissue is removed, the skin is tightened to give you a shapelier breast. Improving the contour of your breasts can help improve your self-confidence.
A BREAST LIFT IS AN OUTPATIENT PROCEDURE
Dr. Burgdorf performs the breast lift as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The procedure usually takes between two to three hours. All operations are performed within fully credentialed and state-of-the-art surgical facilities in the Nashville area.
Dr. Burgdorf makes an anchor shape or inverted “T” incision to start the procedure and then the process continues as follows.
- The underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve breast contour and firmness.
- The nipple and areola are repositioned to a natural, more youthful height.
- If necessary, enlarged areolas are reduced by excising skin at the perimeter.
- Excess breast skin is removed to compensate for a loss of elasticity.
Because of his expertise among Nashville plastic surgeons, Dr. Burgdorf performs many different techniques to achieve beautiful, natural looking breast lifts. His state-of-the-art system focuses on individual anatomy and even allows him to safely place implants at the same time of your breast lift procedure if you desire. During your private consultation with Dr. Burgdorf at Music City Plastic Surgery, you will help him decide which procedure is right for you.
BREAST LIFT RECOVERY
Patients undergoing breast lift procedures are sent home with light dressings and a comfortable, form-fitted bra. Soft bra support (without underwire) is encouraged for four to six weeks. The sutures are self-absorbing. Slight to moderate bruising and swelling is common for several weeks. A self-massaging protocol is initiated after several weeks to maintain both breast and implant softness.
Generally, patients are surprisingly free of discomfort following breast lift surgery as a result of our use of long-acting local anesthetic injections and gentle tissue-handling techniques utilized by Dr. Burgdorf. Most patients tell us they feel much better than expected after just two short weeks. Light exercise can be resumed after several weeks, with unrestricted return to all activities within six weeks. Final results can typically be appreciated at about three months after surgery.
BREAST LIFT RISKS
When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, the risk of serious problems after a breast lift is rare. Most complications are minor, temporary, and can be easily resolved. Specific risks and the suitability of a breast lift procedure for a given individual can be determined at the time of consultation with Dr. Burgdorf. You can reduce your risk of complications by closely following your surgeon’s instructions both before and after surgery.
