A Breast Lift Can Help You Achieve a Perkier Bustline
Dr. Bruce Hermann can perform a breast lift surgery at his Denton, TX, practice to rejuvenate a sagging bustline. This procedure can restore the firm, youthful contours that are often compromised by significant weight loss, pregnancy, nursing, and aging. If you wish to achieve a lift and improve projection, Dr. Hermann can combine a breast lift with breast augmentation. As an experienced surgeon who has trained with some of the most respected practitioners in the field, Dr. Herrman can give you enhancements that help you feel beautiful and confident.
Are You a Candidate?
During a consultation, Dr. Hermann will conduct a consultation to determine if breast lift surgery is right for you. Ideal candidates for a breast lift include patients who are:
- At a healthy weight
- In good overall health
- Over the age of 18
- Not wishing to have more children
- Finished breastfeeding
- Need a lift, but not extensive tissue removal, to achieve their goals
What to Expect
During the consultation, you and Dr. Hermann will discuss your personal cosmetic goals and concerns, and customize a treatment plan to suit your individual needs. He will also review your medical history and administer a detailed examination in order to determine your candidacy. Dr. Hermann and Lisa Rux, our licensed medical aesthetician, will provide you with preoperative and postoperative instructions to help you experience a smooth recovery and optimal results.
Each patient responds to surgery differently, but in most cases, you can return to work and daily activity in about three weeks.
Once candidacy is confirmed and a treatment plan formulated, Dr. Hermann will schedule your procedure. Before surgery, he will administer general anesthesia to maintain your comfort throughout the procedure.
As with a breast reduction, Dr. Hermann will use the short scar technique as opposed to the traditional angle pattern to minimize scarring. He will carefully lift and reshape your breast tissue, and trim excess skin. The nipple will be positioned higher on the breast to create a perky, youthful breast contour. If needed, the areolas will be reduced.
Dr. Hermann will close the incisions with barbed sutures and the Dermabond® Prineo® Skin Closure System to keep the incisions tight and prevent scarring. We also provide a compression garment to minimize swelling and inflammation. The length of your procedure will depend on the extent of refinement, whether you are receiving implants, and whether it is being combined with a breast augmentation or mommy makeover. In most cases, the procedure generally takes about two to three hours.
Recovery and Results
Dr. Hermann will carefully monitor your recovery over the course of the next few weeks to ensure you are healing properly. During this time, it is imperative to watch for any signs of infection. If you develop a fever, chills, excessive bleeding, intense pain, or excessive swelling, call our offices immediately.
Each patient responds to surgery differently, but in most cases, you can return to work and daily activity in about three weeks. Although you will notice a beautifully contoured bustline once the procedure is complete, you can expect a full recovery and desired results in about three months.
