Breast Lift Overview
Rejuvenate your bust line with a breast lift from Najera Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. Over time, your breasts will undergo changes. During the natural aging process, skin loses its elasticity, and gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can all cause the loss of breast shape and firmness. All of these life events and changes can cause the breasts to naturally become less firm and begin to droop. A breast lift from Frisco, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Najera, can help you enjoy perkier, more youthful looking breasts and counteract the effects of time.
Best Candidates for Breast Lift
A breast lift is used to address pendulous breasts, breasts that lack firmness, and nipples that point downward instead of ahead. If you’re happy with your breast size but are not happy with the shape, then a breast lift can provide shape and that “perk” that is lacking. Some patients have uneven breasts, and a breast lift may be able to better match the shape of the two breasts. It is generally recommended that patients wait until breasts are fully developed before undergoing breast lift surgery. The procedure is commonly a part of our mommy makeover treatment plans.

The Breast Lift Process
Dr. Najera will perform a thorough examination, measuring your breasts and taking pictures to completely assess your situation and maintain records of your procedure. We encourage you to gather any medical history information prior to your visit so that we can better serve you. Also, be sure to make Dr. Najera aware of any weight loss plans you have for the future. During the breast lift, the extra skin of your breasts is removed and your areola and nipple are moved up. A breast lift is usually an outpatient surgery completed in 2-3 hours. The specific techniques used in your breast lift procedure will depend on the current state of your breasts and the desired final result. Incision placement can depend on a number of factors, but Dr. Najera does his best to minimize any scarring so that you get attractive and pleasing results. A breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift, if size is also a concern. As long as you maintain a steady weight and a healthy lifestyle, the results of your breast lift surgery should last for years to come.
