Do Your Breasts Need a Lift?

Are you unhappy with your breasts?  Have they changed over time and you are looking to improve their appearance?  A woman’s breasts may sag due to breast feeding, weight fluctuation, or even heredity.  Any of these factors will affect the elasticity around your breasts, which can lead to the degradation of your breast profile.  By removing  the excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues, Dr. Murphy will give your breasts the youthful appearance you had before.  There are various options when it comes to a breast lift, or mastopexy.  Some women choose to have breast augmentation  along with a mastopexy to increase their breast size from what it was.  There are also different incision options you can discuss with Dr. Murphy to see which is best for you.  The recovery period for a mastopexy is very similar to a breast augmentation.  The first couple of weeks are slightly painful, but nearly all mobility is regained after 4-6 weeks.  Please look at our before and after pictures to see if a mastopexy is the right procedure for you.  Dr. Murphy would be happy to discuss this procedure with you and we offer complimentary consultations!
