A breast lift or mastopexy is a surgical procedure completed to correct the look of the breast.
You can obtain the perfect look through a breast lift without breast implants in Miami.
The breasts naturally lose their shape by losing breast volume and weakening the breast tissue with age. A breast lift can lift and reshape the breasts to bring back their youthful appearance.
This surgery is done to improve the breast's shape, elevate, and create younger appearing breasts. It can also correct asymmetric breasts or large and stretched areolas. It may be necessary to add implants to achieve fullness in the breast, but it is not always needed.
With time, the skin of the breast will stretch and result in a droopy appearance. A Breast lift will correct this change while perfecting the shape of the breast. Not only will the breast be elevated in the chest, but it will appear larger while no implant is used.

A breast lift without implants in Coral Gables near Miami is performed under general anesthesia. Typically the surgery can be completed in approximately two hours. After the surgery, you will go to the recovery room until stable and ready to go home.
You mustn't drive home and have a loved one help you for a few days following surgery.
You may have bruising, swelling, and numbness in the breasts after a breast lift. Sleeping in a recliner or propping up on a pillow can help with the swelling. Recovery is typically short, and you may be able to move some the day after surgery. Normal activities can be resumed approximately two weeks after the procedure.
There may be some risks involved, just as with any surgery. Some patients also experience sensations or numbness in the nipples that generally resolve within 3 weeks of the surgery. Sometimes the symptom may last for a few months. In rare cases, the numbness can be a permanent side effect of a breast lift.
Most patients can return to regular activities, including work, 1-2 weeks after surgery. Strenuous activities are best to be avoided for at least a month after the procedure.
A breast lift can last for many years but be aware that weight changes, pregnancy, or aging can cause the breasts to change again. Implants can help the longevity of results.
Some women wonder if they can breastfeed if they have had a breast lift. Up to 75% of patients can breastfeed after surgery. Consider it is best to wait until after you are breastfeeding and likely have children achieve long-lasting results from breast lift surgery.
