Women who have sagging breasts due to previous pregnancies, breastfeeding, genetics, or aging can benefit from breast lift surgery. This procedure can also improve the appearance of the nipple-areolar complexes by repositioning or reducing them. Patients who decide to undergo breast lift surgery can enjoy perkier and more youthful breasts that give them an enhanced sense of body confidence.

Patients will go home in light dressings after a brief observation period following their procedure. Work and light activities can be resumed after one or two weeks, and aerobic exercise can be continued after six weeks. Dr. Alexander will provide complete aftercare directions that include physical limitations and other instructions that are individualized during the consultation appointment to provide the best results.
While most surgeries result in scars, Dr. Alexander places all incisions meticulously and utilizes modern breast lift techniques to minimize the visibility of scarring. Scars also tend to fade and flatten over time until they are nearly imperceivable.
