Breast Lift

Breast Lift Surgery in Provo Utah

Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Having breast lift surgery at our Provo, Utah practice can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.
Why Breast Lift?

Our breast lift patients typically want to improve the appearance of breasts that sag and droop for reasons such as:

  • Dramatic weight loss
  • Loss of elasticity due to age
  • Changes after pregnancy and breastfeeding

If the breasts are small or have lost volume – for example, after pregnancy – we may recommend breast augmentation and women who want to achieve a more complete enhancement. Breast augmentation in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both the firmness and size of the breasts. For other women, a lift may be combined with breast reduction to both elevate and resize the breasts.

About the Procedure

Breast lift surgery raises and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning remaining tissue and nipples. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at the on-site Riverwoods Surgery Center in Provo, UT. Dr. Rose performs this surgery using general anesthesia. The incisions for mastopexy may encircle the areola, descend vertically down the front of the breast or along the underside of the breast. The extent of the incisions will depend on the amount of lift that is required. If a breast lift is combined with breast reduction, liposuction may also be used to remove excess fat deposits.

After this 1 to 3 hour procedure, there will be some bruising, swelling, and discomfort for which pain medication will be prescribed. Most patients take a week off from work, and can resume more strenuous activities after about a month. Swelling will continue to subside in the weeks following surgery and scars will gradually fade.

Testimonials

I have been meaning to send you an email and let you know how happy I am with my results and experience with you. I went to 5 different doctors and chose you. Knowing different results with people that I know, I am pretty sure that those other doctors would have done a fine job. After going to your office and the experience that I had with you and your staff, I knew that you were the doctor for me. You are the most professional doctor that I saw. It was so much more comfortable for me to go over all of the information about breast augmentation with you at your desk and me fully dressed. I didn't have that experience with any of the other doctors. You have a way of making people feel at ease as much as possible. It was nice to have a doctor tell me sizes to consider that would be proportionate to my body frame.

Your staff is so wonderful. Each person in your office is so pleasant to deal with. I don't think that you could have better staff and it helped make my final decision to go to you to have my procedure done.

You did an amazing job!! This is confirmed to me each time one of my friends or family members tells me how natural and great I look. I have decided, if you have something about yourself that bothers you and can be fixed, fix it! The confidence boost that this breast augmentation has given me is awesome. My husband said Dang, I have never heard you talk about any part of yourself like this before. I replied with, Have you ever seen any part of me look so great? We both said that you must have been very gentle during surgery, because I had one tiny little bruise and I felt great quickly after.

I am very happy with my results and I would recommend you to anyone. I have found myself trying to think of people that I could tell to go to you and I realized it probably wouldn't be very nice to tell people that they need to improve their looks if they hadn't even thought of it before. Two of my friends have come to you already and feel the same as I do. We need more surgeons out there like you.

Sincerely,K
