What is a Breast Lift?

A surgical breast lift is a body contouring procedure that reshapes the breasts by trimming away excess skin and pulling tight the remaining tissue to produce a more youthful and healthier appearance. This body reshaping surgery is reserved for women who have lost breast fullness and shape and who have breast sag due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. Dr. Mark W. Stalder, a plastic surgeon in New Orleans, LA, performs this procedure at Stalder Plastic Surgery. By incorporating the latest methods, Dr. Stalder can decide on the correct technique, depending on the degree of sag present and the desired outcome.

How Does a Breast Lift Work?

Breast lift surgery takes about 2 – 4 hours and is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. The timeframe of this procedure depends on the nature of breast size and sagging. The surgical technique used for cosmetic breast lift surgery typically falls within two categories — these are based on the size, location, and nature of the incision. The preferred methods are the anchor technique (inverted-T) and the vertical incisions. After making the incision, any wrinkly and loose skin is excised along with breast tissue and fat that is not wanted. The remaining skin is then tightened, and the breasts are lifted to appear younger and healthy. In most situations, the size and shape of the areola are reduced to match the new placement and shape of the breast. During this time, an implant or a fat transfer can be placed inside the breast if this was discussed with Dr. Stalder before surgery. If the lift is the only procedure being performed and if breast size is a worry, silicone or saline implants can be done at a different date.

The recovery from a breast lift surgery is more extensive than breast augmentation. After surgery, you will be fitted with a support bra to minimize swelling. A small tube is also inserted near the location of the incision to help with excess drainage that can often occur after mastopexy treatment. After surgery, the swelling will decrease within several days. Dr. Stalder or a member of his team will provide detailed home treatment care instructions to help with your healing process. Aesthetic results after a breast lift surgery become evident after a few weeks as your newly shaped breasts take their new position on your chest wall. The breasts will look and feel natural, and you will feel beautiful and more youthful.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
