A board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Azar develops innovative surgical techniques to provide exceptional outcomes.
The Breasts You Want
A breast lift, also called mastopexy, can help you regain confidence in your feminine figure by providing a variety of benefits, which include:
- Restoring a firm, lifted, more youthful shape
- Sculpting stretched, enlarged nipples and areolas
- Aligning breasts that hang unevenly
The breast lift procedure consists of eliminating excess skin and tissue, lifting and tightening the breasts and raising the position of the nipples. This procedure restores your youthful curves in little more than an hour and is often performed in combination with breast augmentation for more dramatic results.
Dr. Azar will adapt his surgical technique to your unique breast renewal. He typically uses either the simple periareolar mastopexy (doughnut) or the vertical mastopexy (lollipop). For most women the vertical technique provides the greatest benefits, as it enables him to lift the breasts higher, minimizes the length and appearance of scars, and reduces the risk of stretching the nipples. With either technique, Dr. Azar inhibits stretching of the nipples by stitching these incisions with Gore-Tex interlocking sutures.
Your Recovery & Beyond
Dr. Azar performs breast lift in a major hospital or surgery center with a board-certified M.D. anesthesiologist. This outpatient procedure typically takes 1 to 3 hours to complete; surgery time is increased when breast lift is combined with other procedures.
Patients typically can return to work within about a week and resume strenuous activities after about a month. After initial swelling and bruising subsides, your enhanced breast shape will gradually appear. Dr. Azar's patients are consistently pleased with the natural and youthful shape that their breasts have once again.
