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

First and foremost I would like to express my sincerest appreciation and thanks to Dr. Rose. As I've come to realize from the many nurses, physical therapist and other staff at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, we were very fortunate to have had Dr. Rose be the attending surgeon for wife's injury. As I understand now, he is one of the country's best in this field of expertise. Everyone that we've spoken with about him has had nothing but praise about his medical talents and ability. We feel very fortunate to have had Dr. Rose to do her surgery. By the way, I had my first opportunity to see the surgical incision and his work today when my wife was at her physical therapy appointment. His suture work could probably qualify him to be a seamstress for Armani Clothes! Wow! Nice Work!

Please let Dr. Rose know of our great appreciation and admiration for him.J
