Learn More About Minimally Invasive Breast Lift Surgery
The traditional surgical breast lift (mastopexy) involved some type incision around and below the nipple, leaving a permanent scar. For many women seeking to lift their breasts to a more youthful position, these scars were an issue. It’s now possible with our Minimally Invasive Breast Lift technique to lift and reshape the breasts without the need for unsightly incisions. Utilizing BodyTite technology, the loose excess breast skin which allows the breast to sag and droop is tightened with radiofrequency thermal energy.
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis at our Brandon Plastic Surgery facility. Utilizing RFAL energy, a thin probe is passed under the loose breast tissues. The fibrous septa which support and anchor the breasts are then thermally tightened in order to firm and elevate the breasts. There are no sutures or drains required. A supportive athletic-type bra with taping is then utilized for several weeks to ensure adequate support and lifting. Patients can return to work almost immediately and resume their normal exercise routines in several days.
The no-incision breast lift procedure is a suitable option for women with mild to moderate breast sagging. This can be from the natural aging process or following pregnancy and breast feeding. The breasts can be lifted and reshaped to achieve a more desirable profile and silhouette. It is especially useful for scarless lifting of asymmetrical or uneven breasts to restore the natural breast symmetry without the need for scars. A personal consultation with Dr. Shienbaum will help determine if this procedure is the best option for you.
