Breast lift for a smoother, firmer bust

Aging, gravity, weight loss and recent pregnancy/breastfeeding can all contribute to sagging breast skin. A breast lift eliminates excess skin, tightens remaining skin and actually lifts breasts to reverse these effects and give you a smoother, younger-looking and firmer bust.

What to expect

What to expect

Your surgeon isn’t only there for you during treatment. He or she is with you every step of the way – before, during and after.

Preparing for your treatment

At your initial consultation with our plastic surgeon, you’ll actually be able to see the potential results of breast augmentation with specific sizes and shapes of breast implants. Our VECTRA 3D imaging system gives you a basic idea through a digital model of how you may look after the procedure. The image can be changed based on the various sizes, shapes and types of implant you might choose, so you’ll be able to see what options are available to you.

During your treatment

The implant incision can be done in the armpit, the crease where the breast meets the chest, or around the areola (the dark-pigmented area surrounding the nipple). You’ll discuss these options with your doctor before surgery and decide which is best for your specific anatomy. The implants are then inserted either directly behind the breast tissue or behind the chest muscle. Then, your OSU Wexner Medical Center surgeon, who is highly trained to ensure minimal visual scarring, will close the incisions.

The entire procedure usually takes less than two hours to complete under a general anesthetic and can be performed on an outpatient basis.

After your treatment

It’s natural to have some swelling, bruising and numbness in the breasts and nipples for several weeks after surgery. Any pain or discomfort in the days following surgery can be minimized with medication. To help speed the healing process, a surgical bra will likely need to be worn. Many patients are able to resume normal daily activities within a week after surgery, but you should avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks following the procedure.
