Your Consultation Visit

Breast drooping is a condition that is hereditary in some women, but it more commonly occurs after pregnancies, weight loss, or aging. The breast skin is stretched larger than it needs to be with the nipple positioned on the lower half of the breast. To achieve fullness on the upper half of the breast, some patients will need a breast implant as well as a lift. This combination surgery lifts the nipple into the correct position and adds fullness to the breast.

The Procedure

During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the surrounding tissue is reshaped to give a more youthful appearance. The nipple is lifted back to a center position on the breast, and an implant is added to round out the upper portion of the breast.

Anesthesia

This combination procedure is done under general anesthesia and takes 2.5-3 hours to complete. The procedure will be completed here at our fully accredited surgery center.

Recovery

After surgery, you will be placed in a surgical bra which you will continue to wear to minimize swelling and support your breasts as you heal. Your recovery nurse will review your post-op instructions with your caregiver while you are in the recovery room. Medication will keep you comfortable after your surgery. You will return to see me in one week after your surgery, and most patients return to work within a week of surgery.

At Accent On You, we take pride in delivering the utmost quality of care with a personalized approach. Our patients in Arlington, Fort Worth, and the surrounding communities in Texas receive nothing but the most comprehensive information on the procedures we perform because we believe that an informed decision is the best decision.
