Breast Lift – St. Louis

A breast lift, or mastopexy, raises the breasts, tightens the skin, and improves the shape of the breasts for a more youthful appearance. Breast lift surgery can also be used in conjunction with augmentation to add fullness to the upper pole of the breast. Dr. Gurley emphasizes it is possible to lift the breast without an implant. Implants are only necessary to add volume or emphasize breast fullness. One of the advantages of a breast lift is that the nipple and areola can be resized, lifted, and re-positioned along with the breast tissue through vary discreet incisions placed on or under the breast. With this procedure, it is possible to change a V-shaped breast to a U-shaped breast which naturally restores a youthful appearance

What You Can Expect

ProcedureWhat 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.

Alternatives 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.

RecoveryWhat 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.
