What Is A Breast Lift?

A surgical breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a body contouring treatment that redefines the breasts by trimming away excess skin and tightening the healthy tissue to produce a more youthful appearance. This body reshaping surgery is reserved for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who are experiencing breast sagging due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Rough in Tucson, AZ offers this cosmetic surgery at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery. By integrating the most state-of-the-art methods, he can choose the appropriate technique, depending on the level of sag present and your desired outcome.

how it works

How Does A Breast Lift Work?

A breast lift takes approximately 2 – 4 hours and is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. The inverted-T technique, known as an anchor, and vertical incisions are the most used breast lift methods. After making the incision, any wrinkly and loose skin is removed along with fatty tissue. The skin is then pulled tight, and the breasts are raised so they appear perkier and younger. In most situations, the size of the areola is reconstructed and reduced to be symmetric with the new shape of the breast. After your procedure, you may need to wait 4 – 6 weeks to resume your normal activities.

Dr. Rough and his entire staff are incredible. From start to finish, they are compassionate, empathetic, and thorough. From the consult to the operation I felt I was taken care of by professional, genuinely caring people. I’ve had a few cosmetic surgeries and I always get sick from the anesthesia, Dr. Rough’s anesthesiologist is the most wonderful sweet human being I’ve ever met. Everyone that is on his team is amazing and just as sweet. You will be in good hands with anything Dr. Rough does. I am writing this review day of surgery and I am feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. James Rough if you are looking for a skilled and caring surgeon with a team that will take care of you from start to finish. I cannot wait for my results!

Breast Augmentation FAQs

How much does breast augmentation cost?

Your total cost for breast augmentation will vary based on your choices and if you are having any other surgeries. Once your treatment plan is developed, Dr. Rough will talk to you about estimated costs and financing options. To make sure your results match your goals and last a long time, it's important to focus on quality over low costs.

Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?

Your treatment plan may include breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. A breast lift removes loose skin and improves the position of the breasts, while augmentation enhance the size and shape. In your consultation with Dr. Rough, he will listen to your needs and goals before explaining your treatment options. An augmentation and lift are often a part of a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after breastfeeding and pregnancy.

Can I breastfeed with implants?

If you want to breastfeed after breast augmentation, talk to Dr. Rough during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after augmentation surgery, with the right surgical technique and placement. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results, which is why it is better to wait until your family is complete to get breast augmentation.
