Breast Lift Baton Rouge

While breasts size is often seen as the most important aspect of the appearance of the breasts, the shape of the breasts is equally important. Over time, and sometimes due to factors like pregnancy, the breast tissues can begin to sag. This gives the breasts a flat and unattractive appearance that can make some women feel self-conscious.

If you are unhappy with the shape and overall appearance of your breasts, a breast lift may be perfect for you. The procedure is designed to enhance the contours of the breasts and adjust the tissues to give the breasts a rounder and perkier appearance.

Associates in Plastic Surgery in Baton Rouge has been able to help countless women achieve their aesthetic goals through plastic surgery.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, or mastopexy, involves raising the breasts and adjusting the tissues to give the breasts enhanced perkiness and to resolve breast sag. This is accomplished by removing excess skin and minor fatty tissue to reshape and restore a more youthful, uplifted appearance.

In order to ensure that the results provided look as natural and attractive as possible, the procedure also repositions the areolae on the chest wall. This helps to create improved breast symmetry.

Over time, the effects of normal aging, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight fluctuations and genetics all contribute to breast sagging and loss of fullness. Breast lift surgery is an ideal option for women seeking to reverse these effects and renew the appearance of their breasts. If a more enhanced appearance is desired, this procedure can be combined with breast implants.

It is recommended that you wait until after you are done having children before undergoing a breast lift. This is because pregnancy and breastfeeding can jeopardize the results of your breast lift, which may require an additional surgery to correct. You should also wait until you have reached an ideal weight that you can maintain.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

Ideal candidates for breast lift procedures are women who do not plan to get pregnant in the near future. Women who have finished breastfeeding and want to raise their sagging breasts are also excellent candidates for breast lift procedures

Good candidates for a breast lift are those who want to enhance the shape and perkiness of their breasts. It is important to have realistic goals regarding the results of the breast lift procedure.

The best candidates for mastopexy are women who have no plans to lose a large amount of weight and are committed to maintaining their weight after the surgery. Patients must have no health conditions that hinder the healing process.


Initial Consultation

After performing an exam and reviewing pertinent health history, your surgeon may order lab work, a mammogram, and other pre-operative tests as deemed necessary. Lastly, you will meet with a surgery coordinator to discuss fees, surgery scheduling options, and make a pre-operative appointment to meet with the nurse for final preparation prior to surgery.

During your initial consultation for a breast lift, you will meet with our board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations. Your surgeon will provide you with a detailed explanation of the mastopexy procedure, answer your questions, and determine a surgical plan of care based on your expected outcome.

What to Expect During Surgery

Your breast lift will be performed in our AAAASF accredited office surgical suite with a qualified anesthesia provider. Operative time in most cases is approximately 1-2 hours. Anesthesia will be administered; it may be general anesthesia or a combination of local anesthesia and sedation. This choice will be made during your consultation.

Incisions will be made in the targeted areas. Incision pattern options include the donut incision, the lollipop incision, and the anchor incision. The surgeon will then remove the excess skin and reshape the underlying tissues to achieve the desired results. The operation is finished by closing the incisions with sutures.

Most breast lift procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, and patients are discharged home the same day. You will need to have a friend or family member drive you home after your procedure, so make sure to plan accordingly ahead of time.

Your nurse will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions at your pre-operative visit and will review them again prior to your discharge home. Recovery time for breast lift surgery is about two weeks, and most patients take pain medication for a few days. Patients can typically return to work within 1-2 weeks, but heavy lifting, pushing or pulling should be avoided for the first four weeks following your surgery.

It will be necessary to wear the provided post-surgical support bra without underwire while healing from the breast lift procedure. This will help to protect the temporarily weakened tissues. A follow-up appointment with the surgeon will be scheduled so they can evaluate the progress of recovery and prevent potential complications.



“Not only is Dr. Dean an amazing surgeon, he is kind to his patient. I really needed a tummy tuck after having a huge kid and losing weight. Not only are my result far beyond my expectations, his aftercare is amazing. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift, and lipo, his was a huge surgery. The day after my surgery I had one tiny bruise. There are too many things to list were he did a little extra. Not only does he care about the results, he cares about his patient. He staff is awesome, his attitude is great. I really can’t put into words how happy I am with my result and my care. If you are looking, look no further, you won’t be sorry.”
