Breast Lift in Plano, TX

As a highly skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Wilcox can help you make your aesthetic goals a reality!
How Can I Benefit from Breast Lift Surgery?
Over time, factors including pregnancy, nursing, and aging can cause the skin of the breasts to lose their elasticity. This, in turn, can cause the breasts to lose the shape and firmness that they possessed in the past. This loss of elasticity or sagging can be offset by a surgical procedure called mastopexy, or a breast lift. This breast augmentation surgery will lift and reshape the breast, and also reshape the areola if necessary. The result is more natural looking breasts, and a more confident woman.
While having a breast lift at our facility, many women also choose to have breast augmentation. This option is perfect for women with small breasts or who have lost volume after pregnancy. Through the insertion of breast implants, it is possible to improve both breast size and firmness. The best way to find out which procedure options are best for you is to schedule an initial consultation. Dr. Wilcox is skilled and experienced with this type of procedure, and will be able to help you not only determine which options are best for your body type, but also help you to understand the procedure.
Am I A Good Candidate?
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery is to discuss it with Dr. Wilcox. Every body is different and, as a result, there is no “cookie cutter” version of any cosmetic surgery procedure. That being said; the best candidates for a breast lift are women who have noticed that their breasts have begun to sag and want to subtly change their appearance.
Many of the women seeking this procedure do so because pregnancy or nursing has left their breasts sagging with less volume than before their pregnancy. Women who have had pregnancies and wish to get their pre-pregnancy shape back may want to consider a mommy makeover.
Before The Procedure
The first thing you will do before your breast lift will be to meet with Dr. Wilcox to discuss the variables for your particular surgery. These variables include your age, the shape and size of your breasts, the condition of your skin, whether you are interested in an implant, and other considerations such as nipple and areola position. Dr. Wilcox will discuss the procedure with you in detail, and will be able to answer any questions or concerns you may have during your consultation.
The most common breast lift procedure involves creating an “anchor” shaped incision following the natural shape of the breast. This incision surrounds the area from which excess skin will be removed and defines the new location of the nipple, as outlined in your pre-procedure consultation. Once the skin has been removed, the areola and nipple are moved to their new position, and the remaining skin is brought down to reshape the breast. If you have chosen to have breast augmentation at the same time as your breast lift, the implant will be inserted during the procedure.
Breast lift candidates with smaller breasts may also be eligible for a variation of the above procedure, which is called a concentric or doughnut mastopexy. This variation involves a smaller incision and may reduce scarring.
After the Procedure
Following your breast lift, you can expect to experience some discomfort, which should last no more than a few days. Your breasts will also be swollen and slightly bruised; you can expect the swelling and bruising to fade quickly following the surgery. Immediately after surgery, you will wear either a bandage or surgical bra over a gauze dressing.
Sometime between one and two weeks after surgery, your stitches will be removed, which is also the approximate time you will be ready to return to work. During your initial consultation, Dr. Wilcox will discuss the healing process with you further as well as give you detailed instructions regarding when you can resume normal activities.
