While your breasts can make you feel attractive and confident, time and life changes can create sagging and an unflattering breast shape. Gravity, pregnancy, nursing, and weight changes can stretch breasts out, making them eventually appear saggy and flattened. A growing number of women have discovered that Indiana breast lift surgery is an effective solution. They trust and appreciate board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gus Galante for breast lift surgery to achieve firm, youthful-looking breasts.

Improvements from Breast Lift

Many women seek breast lift, technically called mastopexy, to create a more flattering breast appearance. Common reasons women choose this procedure include:

  • Raising saggy, stretched out breasts to a youthful position
  • Restoring a rounded, perky breast shape
  • Directing nipples upwards
  • Reducing the size of enlarged or stretched areolas

Your initial consultation with Dr. Galante is your opportunity to discuss breast enhancement in more detail. In the comfort of his private suite, you will be able to openly discuss your goals and expectations. Dr. Galante's patients appreciate his approachable, personable nature and enjoy having all of their questions answered without feeling rushed. If you have pictures of breast sizes you like, bring them to share with the doctor to help him visualize your desired shape and size. You can also review before and after photos of some of Dr. Galante's actual breast lift patients.

Complete Enhancement

Often a woman's dissatisfaction with her breasts is not only due to sagginess; breasts that sag commonly do not have enough volume to achieve a full, rounded shape. Many women choose to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation in Indiana because the lift procedure alone may reduce breast size, or at least make the breasts appear smaller. During your consultation, Dr. Galante will review the available types of breast implants in Indiana.

Although combining these two procedures presents additional challenges, Dr. Galante has the surgical skills and experience to achieve satisfying results while devoting special attention to patient comfort and safety. He will thoroughly review your options with you before determining the most effective combination of procedures for your unique goals. Your peace of mind and confidence in your decision are of the utmost importance to Dr. Galante.

Your Procedure, Your Enhancement

A breast lift raises and reshapes the breast by removing excess skin, fat, or breast tissue, and repositioning the nipple, similar to a breast reduction. Indiana breast specialist Dr. Galante is skilled in many breast lift techniques, but the most common options involve an anchor-shaped incision and a concentric (doughnut) incision with or without a vertical incision. During the procedure, Dr. Galante can also reduce the size of the areola if so desired.

Dr. Galante usually performs breast lift surgery on an outpatient basis in a local surgery center with the patient under general anesthesia. You will sleep through the entire procedure and be able to go home after surgery. Patients can usually resume light activities within in 7 to 10 days. Strenuous movements and heavy lifting of any kind should be avoided for several weeks.

The majority of Dr. Galante's breast lift patients are thrilled with their firm, shapely breasts and increased self-confidence. As with all surgery, breast lift surgery will leave scars, but they usually fade within the first year. Dr. Galante has the skills, experience, and vision to help you reach your cosmetic goals, as he has done for many women who have visited him for breast surgery.
