Have you considered breast lift to help give the appearance you desire?

If you're unhappy with your breasts’ appearance, a breast lift may be the ideal solution to help you attain a better contoured shape for restored self-confidence. Dr. Menard of Menard Plastic Surgery has extensive experience in performing breast lift surgery for patients in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham.

What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure in which excess skin is removed and tissue is tightened in the breast area. The purpose of a breast lift is to improve the firmness of the breasts and reposition them to make them more youthful and shapely. A woman may require a breast lift for any of the following scenarios:

• After pregnancy or breastfeeding
• Weight fluctuations
• Hereditary problems with sagging skin
• The natural aging process

Does a Breast Lift Change the Size of the Breasts?
No, a breast lift does not change the size of the breasts. During breast list surgery, Dr. Menard focuses is on re-contouring, firming, and reshaping the area for aesthetic appeal. For increasing or decreasing the size of the breasts, our office performs breast augmentations and reductions respectively. If you are considering any surgery to affect your breasts’ appearance, Dr. Menard welcomes you to schedule a consultation, where you can decide what procedure will help you meet your goals.
What Can I Expect After a Breast Lift?
Following a breast lift procedure from our Tuscaloosa plastic surgery office, you will likely experience tenderness and discomfort for a few days. Dr. Menard can prescribe medications to help you feel more comfortable. You will need to rest and avoid strenuous activity for a few days after surgery. Your stitches will be removed roughly 2 to 3 weeks after the lift, with the shape of your breasts gradually improving over the weeks and months that follow.
