Breast Lift (Mastopexy) Surgery in Virginia Beach, VA
With age, weight fluctuations and pregnancy, many women’s breasts change in volume, firmness and shape. These changes combined with decreasing skin elasticity can cause the breast to sag, lose firmness or appear smaller. Breast lift surgery is a great way to restore the youthful appearance of full, firm breasts. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Bounds, Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach serves the residents of Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News and surrounding communities in Virginia.
What is Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)?
Breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that reshapes and raises sagging breasts. Breast lift surgery is sometimes combined with breast implants (LINK) to increase volume and firmness of the breasts.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
When considering breast lift surgery, begin the process with a consultation with Dr. Bounds. He will assess your overall health and the size, shape, and symmetry of your breasts and determine a course of action to achieve the results you seek. You are a good candidate for breast lift surgery if:
- Your breasts have lost shape or volume and are sagging
- You are in good health and maintain a stable weight
- You are a non-smoker
- Your breasts are not the same shape or size, or one breast is lower than the other
- Your breasts appear flat and somewhat elongated
- You have stretched skin and/or enlarged areolas
Thousands of women undergo breast lift surgery and are delighted with the results that lift, firm and shape their breasts, giving them greater self-confidence and a sense of overall well-being.
The Breast Lift Surgery Procedure
Dr. Bounds performs breast lift surgery on an outpatient basis in his in-office surgical suite. The surgery usually lasts two to four hours, after which a registered nurse will attend to you as you awaken in the recovery room.
After you are fully awake and Dr. Bounds is satisfied that you are comfortable, you will be released to go home with a relative or trusted friend.
