What is it?
A breast lift is a wonderful way to utilize your own breast tissue to improve the shape of your breasts and elevate the nipple. Dr. Hartmann uses a technique which repurposes your own breast tissue to create an internal lifting effect. The incisions are typically through a lollipop incision. At your consultation she will determine the best procedure to achieve your desired results. For the patient, this is a transformative surgery.
Am I a candidate?
Candidates for breast lift surgery have ample breast tissue/overhanging tissue. Up to date breast imaging to screen for breast cancer will be mandatory if you are over 40 years of age.
Before & Afters
What is recovery like?
Recovery following breast lift is approximately 2 weeks without exertional activity. At 6 weeks, you may return to gym activities; this includes lifting weights. All stitches dissolve under the skin. You will wear a compression bra 24/7 for the first 2 weeks and then you may switch to your own sports bra as long as it provides good support. You will have to sleep on your back for 6 weeks as well. Scarring will fade over the first year.
