What does the procedure entail?
During the procedure, incisions are typically placed around the areola and vertically from areola to the crease underneath the breast. Dr. Gurley utilizes a short scar technique which minimizes the incision. Breast tissue may or may not be removed depending on your specific anatomy.
Are there any alternatives?
A breast augmentation can be used in combination with a breast lift. Dr. Gurley will meet with you personally to decide which procedure or combination of procedures would be best for you.
What can I expect?
In most cases, no pumps, drains, binding or wrapping are required. Most patients are off pain medication within 24 hours and can return to their normal daily routines. This includes showering, driving, and returning to work. Dr. Gurley will also provide you with a few simple post-operative movements you can do to reduce stiffness and promote faster healing. Sports and exercise are not recommended for 6 weeks after the surgery.
Who is a good candidate?
You may want to consider a breast lift if:
You always need a bra to hold up your breasts.
Your nipples are low and your breasts sit on your upper tummy.
Your breasts have lost shape, are flat and have little projection.
The top of your breasts have lost fullness, shape, and definition.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, or the natural aging process, breasts can change shape or lose their ideal position. Dr. Gurley is skilled at reshaping sagging breasts into rounder, more full breasts. Through one-on-one consultation she will help you visualize your breasts "lifted" and help determine if a breast lift in combination with breast augmentation would be the best choice. Her artistic eye will help you achieve the look you desire.
