I recently had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Blau, I could not be happier with the results. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented. I am glad that I trusted him in helping me decide on the right size and shape for my body frame. Dr. Blau is very patient and is very thorough in answering all of your questions. He is a master at what he does. The office staff is also so professional and caring. He deserves more than 5 stars, I can not thank him enough. I highly recommend Dr. Blau and his office staff.
When the nipple is below the infra-mammary crease, which is the crease under the breasts, this condition is defined as a “saggy breast”. The cause of saggy breasts can be hereditary or can be the result of weight loss and/or childbearing.
Breast Implants (Breast Augmentation) coupled with a Breast Lift (Mastopexy) can improve the contour of saggy breasts by a combining the benefits of a surgical lift with the insertion of breast implants.
With Mastopexy (Breast Lift), there may be temporary bruising and swelling with some discomfort. Any pain can be alleviated with medication. You will be advised to wear a bra (day and night) for the first month.
After the Breast Lift, stitches will be removed within two weeks. Scars will be visible, but may fade significantly with time. However, they will never disappear completely. The recovery rate is rapid, with most patients being able to return to work within one week. It is important to avoid strenuous activity, such as lifting, bending, or stretching for about a month.
As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. As with any surgery, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you.
