Breast lift (or mastopexy) is a powerful surgical procedure that rejuvenates the breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue to optimize breast contour and symmetry. Mastopexy elevates the breasts to a youthful position on the chest wall, creating an elegant, balanced look. The position and size of the areolas are also optimized to compliment the overall breast aesthetic. Dr. Kristy Hamilton, a Texas-based, board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, blends her refined artistic sensibilities and highly-skilled surgical technique to create a customized, natural-looking breast shape and contour—revealing feminine, exquisitely proportioned breasts that gracefully accentuate the figure.
The breast lift procedure is ideal for women who have experienced changes in breast tissue related to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, genetics, or the passage of time. A popular option is to combine a breast lift with breast implants or fat injections to enhance breast size.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A BREAST LIFT?
Dr. Hamilton’s patients consistently remark on her ability to deliver exceptional breast enhancement results that greatly boost her patients’ confidence. With a passion for helping patients achieve their breast aesthetic goals with precision and finesse, Dr. Hamilton ensures every stage of the breast lift procedure is performed with the utmost care and attention to detail. Notable benefits achieved with a breast lift include:
- Perky, youthful-looking breasts that appear fuller
- A beautifully contoured areolar complex that is elevated to a higher position on the breast
- Balanced, symmetrical breasts and areolas
- Enhanced overall body proportions
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE BREAST LIFT PROCEDURE?
During a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Hamilton intently explores each patient’s unique aesthetic goals to create a bespoke plan for an optimal surgical outcome. Dr. Hamilton removes excess skin, sculpts and supports the breasts to create a beautiful shape and contour, and reshapes the areolas, repositioning them higher on the breast. Where appropriate, an “internal bra” can be incorporated to help provide additional support for the restored breasts. The ultimate result showcases flattering symmetry, a lifted and gorgeous breast contour, and stunning cleavage lines.
One of the qualities that truly sets Dr. Hamilton apart as a plastic surgeon is her signature approach to suturing and scar care. Her goal in performing meticulous, super-fine suturing is to ensure that incision lines are fine, thin and delicate. Combined with postoperative topical skin care and laser treatments, Dr. Hamilton’s patients are able to enjoy their newly rejuvenated breasts with less visible scarring that continues to fade with time.
WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE AFTER A BREAST LIFT?
Dr. Hamilton uses a specialized Accelerated Recovery Protocol to ensure that her patients enter surgery in a pre-calmed state that is optimized for a comfortable and expedited recovery. Most patients are able to return to work and regular, non-strenuous activity within one to three days. This is truly game-changing for patients who require minimal downtime postoperatively. Dr. Hamilton believes that achieving your ideal breasts should be a comfortable and joyful process, and she has innovated her non-narcotic recovery protocol with this in mind. Patients often report being pain-free the day after surgery, enabling them to heal in a relaxed state.
Following surgery, patients will wear a soft surgical bra for six weeks. Dr. Hamilton’s patients are restaurant-ready in 1-2 days and can start exercising in a progressive fashion, beginning at two weeks.
