Any number of factors – weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, the natural aging process – can cause the bustline to lose its elasticity. When this happens, the breasts droop or sag, adding years to the body. The cosmetic procedure known as breast lift can restore your curves and make your body look more toned and youthful.
During breast lift, performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, Dr. Sonderman makes an incision along the breast and discards surplus skin, fat, and tissue. He then tightens the bustline and, if necessary, repositions the nipple so that the breast looks natural. Breast lift takes one or more hours to perform but is generally considered an outpatient procedure. Many breast lift Milwaukee patients report some bruising, swelling, and temporary loss of feeling in the nipples, but most side effects subside as the breasts heal, usually within a few weeks time.
