Mastopexy/Breast Lift
In addition to breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Potter offers breast lift and breast reduction surgeries. These procedures allow individuals who are dissatisfied with uncomfortably large breasts or drooping breasts the opportunity to achieve a more attractive and comfortable breast shape and size.

Breast Lift Surgery
The breast lift procedure is designed to lift and reposition breasts that have drooped or stretched over time. Individuals whose breasts have also lost volume over time may choose to pair a breast lift with breast augmentation to restore size, shape, and firmness to the breasts. Patients who undergo a breast lift performed by an expert like Dr. Potter enjoy the improved self-confidence that accompanies a more youthful, attractive figure.

When performing a breast lift, Dr. Potter will make incisions to remove excess skin, reshape the breast, and reposition it higher on the chest. Depending on the extent of the lift, different types of incisions will be used. Before undergoing surgery, breast lift patients will participate in a thorough evaluation and planning process to determine the best options for them.

Making a complete recovery from breast lift surgery takes four to six weeks, during which time patients may experience soreness and swelling, and should avoid heavy lifting and other strenuous tasks. Most patients are able to return to work after about two weeks. Because smoking affects healing, patients should stop smoking several weeks before surgery, and should avoid smoking during recovery from breast lift surgery.

Dr. Potter is committed to helping his patients achieve a beautiful body contour using breast reduction or breast lift surgery. To schedule a consultation, contact Graystone Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery today.
