Breast Lift

Breast Lift Miami, FL, with Imagos Plastic Surgery

Restore a Perkier Bustline with a Breast Lift from Imagos Plastic Surgery

Every year, countless women undergo breast augmentation to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. Many patients have naturally small breasts, and breast augmentation helps them achieve the full, voluptuous breasts and enhanced cleavage they have always desired.

The processes of aging, breastfeeding, and gravity will eventually affect the entire body, including the breasts. Many women will notice that the perky breasts they once loved have gradually descended. The breasts begin to droop downward with ptosis (sagging) and lack support. The more the breasts sag, the more the breasts lose their shape, volume, and appeal. 

Women who desire a more youthful bustline may be interested in breast lift surgery, or mastopexy. Breast lift surgery with Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri or Dr. Onelio Garcia in Miami involves lifting and tightening the breast tissue along with repositioning the nipple-areolar complexes.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure that can lift and tighten a woman’s breasts. The surgery can also resize an overly large areola (the dark or pink area surrounding the nipple). Breast lift surgery works by meticulously removing, repositioning, and tightening skin and breast tissue to sculpt a new breast contour. A breast implant can also be included to add volume and fullness to the breast. 

Our surgeons can also include the GalaFLEX Mesh, a knitted surgical implant that supports breast tissue during a breast lift to give extra strength to the breast tissue. 

What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?

Perkier, Lifted Breasts

Many women consider youthful breasts to be an ideal trait. When the breasts begin sagging due to the effects of aging, pregnancy, or weight loss, a woman may feel less confident about her appearance. Once a breast lift surgery is performed, women can feel happy about their newly rejuvenated and perky breasts.

Better Cleavage

Breast lift surgery is designed to improve the aesthetics of the breasts, which can enhance a woman’s self-image. Once the breasts are restored to a more youthful position, women can feel more confident about their bodies, either unveiled or underneath clothing.

Restored Volume

Women with sagging breasts often notice that more revealing or tighter clothing styles fit them awkwardly. Breast lift surgery gives women lifted and fuller breasts, which allows them to fit into clothing better. They can proudly wear tank tops, form-fitting t-shirts, bathing suit tops, and other clothing that they typically steered away from before.

Improved Physique

The breasts are important to a woman’s frame and can affect her entire silhouette. Breast lift surgery offers subtle changes that can make a noticeable difference. Not only will women notice the transformation in the appearance of their breasts, but they will likely see an overall improvement in their physique due to a more balanced and attractive breast contour.

Breast Lift with GalaFLEX Mesh

GalaFLEX mesh is a surgical implant that helps support and lift breast tissue during a breast lift and provides extra strength. FDA-approved GalaFLEX mesh is made of biocompatible polymer that is safely absorbed by the body after 1 to 2 years. This innovative product is produced by Galatea and has helped over a million patients achieve their ideal breast lift results in two decades.

The long-lasting success of a breast lift procedure is often limited by the quality of the patient’s existing breast tissue and skin laxity. For patients with limited elasticity or weakened breast tissue, this can result in ptosis reoccurring and the rapid loss of their surgical rejuvenation. In these cases, plastic surgeons use surgical scaffolds like GalaFLEX mesh to stabilize and support the weakened or compromised tissue.

What Are the Benefits of Using GalaFLEX Mesh?

Another way to think about GalaFLEX mesh is like an internal bra. Your surgeon inserts the GalaFLEX mesh under the skin to support the breast mass. The mesh material is made of high-strength, absorbable monofilament fibers that are uniquely strong and flexible. Moreover, they are biocompatible, meaning the body accepts them easily with no risk allergic reaction.

GalaFLEX mesh is a knit textile that elevates, reinforces, and repairs soft tissue. The loose knit of GalaFLEX also allows new tissues to grow in and around its weave for better structural support. It also allows the new tissue to rapidly vascularize and develop a healthy blood supply as it becomes fully integrated into the breast tissue as the mesh fibers are absorbed.

How to Decide If GalaFLEX Mesh Is Right for You?

During your personalized consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Perez-Gurri or Dr. Garcia, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and whether a breast lift can help you achieve your desired figure. An examination of your chest, including measurements and photographs, will be conducted to determine the vitality of your breast tissue and skin. In addition, your surgeon will ask about your:

  • General health
  • Allergies
  • Current medications
  • Lifestyle
  • Past procedures

This information is taken into consideration to determine if a breast lift is a healthy and safe option and whether GalaFLEX Mesh will be the solution to your successful breast lift. As patient safety and satisfaction is always a top priority at Imagos Plastic Surgery, your surgeon may recommend an alternative or additional treatment to achieve the best outcome.

Recovery from a Breast Lift with GalaFLEX Mesh

Recovering from your breast lift with GalaFLEX mesh is similar to the recovery of other breast lift procedures. During your pre-surgery consultation with Dr. Perez-Gurri or Dr. Garcia, you’ll be provided with detailed instructions on how to care for your newly lifted breasts and sutures. You’ll also be provided with a compression garment to be worn for several days post-operatively. Throughout your breast lift recovery, your surgeon will monitor your healing closely.

You’ll be able to notice the difference in the position and shape of your breasts soon after your surgery. Your results will continue to improve over the next few months as bruising and swelling decrease.

Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck (Mommy Makeover)
