Breast Lift Quality in South Carolina; With or Without Implants By Dr. Sutton Graham on December 01, 2009

Sutton Graham, MD, FACS has an excellent reputation in our region for quality breast lift (mastopexy) surgery.

We have the pleasure of treating a variety of women seeking breast lift. For example, many women are healthy and active following child-bearing and breast-feeding. They look good in many of their clothes, but need effective bra support to maintain attractive breast shape. They have trouble wearing bathing suits, sundresses, plain tee-shirts, gowns and evening wear; all because they feel they need good support.

Breast lift can change that. You can look better when your outfit is braless, or look even better wearing a bra. Firm support will be unnecessary. Finally, after a breast lift, you will find that sports bras give you more effective support and comfort when jogging, playing tennis, or other vigorous sports.

Another common breast lift patient is a woman who has succeeded in loosing considerable excess weight. She may have done this by diet & exercise, or weight-loss (bariatric) surgery. While she may be pleased with her slimmer physique, she may report dramatic loss of breast shape. Mastopexy breast lift is capable of removing large amounts of loose skin, while preserving all natural breast glandular tissue.

Many breast lift patients want a lift and a larger breast size. Mastopexy is often combined with augmentation (implants). This can give an excellent youthful look to your breasts. It can restore pre-pregnancy breast size and shape. Or it may improve on what you already have.

Breast lift operations are designed to preserve your nipple and areola sensation. There may be temporary decreases, but normal sensation usually returns, with most procedures. Similarly, women usually maintain the ability to breast-feed, although breast lift is not commonly indicated before having children. We will recommend the procedure that gives you the least scar, most effective improvement, and maintains safety. We usually recommend 5-7 days off work, and 3 weeks before resuming exercise work-outs. We'll advise you about shopping for new bras, etc. Breast lift plus tummy tuck or liposuction may be referred to as a "mommy make-over."

Our procedures are performed in our nationally accredited office surgical facility, with a board-certified physician (MD) anesthesiologist. Our nurses and staff are very experienced in caring for and advising breast lift patients, and they'll make your recovery smooth. We think you'll say we provide the best surgery experience you'll ever have.
