Breast Lift Tacoma
Even with small breasts and excellent skin tone, there’s just no getting around it; your breasts are going to sag over time. Given the normal processes of pregnancy, nursing, aging, and gravity this natural droop may be exacerbated. Many patients who find themselves unsatisfied with the changing position of their breasts seek out a breast lift or mastopexy.
Women who are finished having children and who want to address issues like: breast firmness, nipples that point downwards, and of course, sagging breasts are good candidates for a mastopexy.
Three incisions allow Dr. Chung access beneath the breast. She removes excess skin and tissue, raises the breasts, and if required she can adjust the position of the nipple at this time.
When excess skin is removed, a minor reduction in breast size may occur. Candidates for this surgery should be interested in greater firmness and an elevated position for the breast. If you desire a change in breast size, you may want to consider consulting with Dr. Chung about an augmentation or reduction to be performed concurrently with your lift procedure.
The Recovery Process
We make it a priority to support you during your recovery. Dr. Chung believes in ensuring that her patients feel informed and empowered about their after care.
Many breast lift patients can return to work in as little as three days. Immediately after a breast lift, patients will typically experience swelling and discomfort. Dr. Chung will manage your pain and discomfort by prescribing pain medication, and as such she may also recommend that you wear a support bra as support for several weeks to assist in your healing.
It’s vital to remember that with this procedure full and final results may not be completely evident for six months post surgery. Your results will continue to improve as your body heals and adjust. Dr. Chung is renowned for her gorgeous and natural looking results with this surgery, patience and self-care are essential components to a successful recovery.
