Notes from Dr. Jenq

Breast Lift Surgery

When a breast lift is performed, a striking result is that as the extra skin is tightened, breasts that were widened and flattened become rounder and better positioned on the chest. This surgery can bring a lot of satisfaction for women who are already happy with the size of their chest, but the skin has started to sag over time due to pregnancy or age.

The type of scar that is used depends on how much extra skin exists. They can range from a crescent scar that involves only a part of the areola to an anchor shaped scar.  The recovery process is generally about 2 weeks.  The goal is to recreate more youthful breasts without the need to use implants.
