Breast Lift Surgery Overview
Breast Lift Surgery Overview

The goal of breast lift cosmetic surgery is to raise the level of heavily sagging breasts in order to produce more youthful breast contours. Breast lift procedure may be performed independently or in combination with breast augmentation surgery. Over the years, advanced techniques have made breast lift a safer and more effective surgery.

Dr. Wright Jones is an experienced and widely recognized plastic surgeon providing breast lift and various other surgeries. Dr. Jones will customize the procedure to suit the unique aesthetic needs and goals of a patient. He receives patients from Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding communities for breast lift.

Impressive Candidates

Breast lift plastic surgery may be performed on women who are at least 18 years of age, and who seek perkier, elevated, and firmer looking breasts. If a woman is dissatisfied with the drooping breasts and the downward pointing nipples, she may benefit the most from breast lift surgery.

If in addition to poor elasticity of the breast skin, the patient also seeks enhanced breast size, the surgeon may recommend breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation. The candidate should not have any near-term plans for a pregnancy, and should not be planning to undergo a major weight loss program soon after breast lift.

Standard Breast Lift

In many cases, the cosmetic surgeon may choose the standard breast lift technique. In this technique, the surgeon will create an anchor shaped incision, beginning with an incision around the areola and another vertical incision down to the breast crease. Sometimes a third horizontal incision along the breast crease may be placed.

Mild scarring is unavoidable with this standard breast lift technique, but the results in terms of reducing droopiness in the lower half of the breasts can be very good. Tighter, firmer and perkier looking breasts can be achieved. Dr. Jones provides this procedure to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and nearby locations.

Procedure

Breast lift surgery will be performed with the patient under general anesthesia or IV sedation. The procedure will begin with the surgeon making the incisions in discreet targeted areas. Through the incisions, the surgeon will remove the excess breast tissue and reshape the underlying tissue to produce more natural looking, youthful, and desirable breasts.

In case of areola reduction, the surgeon will trim away excess tissue from the circumference of the areola to reshape the area. The areola and the nipple may be relocated to a higher position on the breasts to make them look natural. After the surgery is over, the surgeon will pull back the skin smoothly and tightly over the breasts. The incisions will carefully closed with sutures.

Recovery

The patient will be required to wear a compression garment or surgical bra for a few weeks until the new shape of the breasts becomes firm. Most patients will go through a downtime of about one week, after which they may return to work or resume their normal activities. Heavy lifting of weights and aggressive activities should be avoided for at least a month.

Breast Reconstruction Surgery Overview
Breast Reconstruction Surgery Overview

Breast reconstruction is a major plastic surgery procedure that will usually involve more than one procedure. Depending on the patient’s needs, the procedure may be performed at the same time with mastectomy or later. Flap reconstruction and breast implant surgery are two primary surgical approaches to perform breast reconstruction procedure.

Breast reconstruction is typically more complex than regular breast procedures performed by a cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Wright Jones is a leading plastic surgery expert providing breast reconstruction and various other procedures of the breast, body, and face. Dr. Jones receives patients from Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding communities.

Candidacy

The cosmetic surgery specialist will first determine whether the patient is a marvelous candidate for flap reconstruction or breast implant procedure. Candidates for flap techniques should not have any health conditions that could pose risk during the surgery. Flap techniques involve removal of tissue from a healthy area of the body, and the procedure is usually more invasive than implant reconstruction.

Secondly, this technique is more suited for candidates who require only a single breast reconstruction in order to match it accurately with the other breast. Women who are relatively thinner or older or seek a less invasive procedure with shorter recovery may choose breast implant reconstruction. As a leading plastic surgeon, Dr. Jones provides both types of reconstruction to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and nearby areas.

DIEP Flap Reconstructive Surgery

Deep Inferior Epigastric Performation (DIEP) breast reconstruction involves surgical removal of fat and skin from the patient’s abdominal area, which is then utilized to create a new breast mound. Unlike another flap technique called TRAM, the DIEP technique does not involve transfer of any muscle from the abdomen.

The surgeon will detach the fat and skin from the abdomen and re-attach it to the targeted area of the breast. Blood vessels in the tissue will then be connected to the blood vessels in the chest to provide proper flow. Abdominal skin will be tightened and closed with sutures. The entire procedure can take about three to five hours.

Breast Implant Reconstructive Surgery

If the woman does not have adequate skin in the breast area following a mastectomy, the surgeon will place a tissue expander in order to stretch the skin and allow space for an implant. Once the expander has sufficiently stretched over a few weeks of injecting with saline solution, the surgeon will replace it with a breast implant. It will take about two months for the expansion of breast tissue before the placement of the final implant.

If the patient has sufficient skin available to cover the implant, the tissue expansion will not be necessary. In such a case, the implant placement can be done at the time of mastectomy or at a later stage. Immediate implant replacement is more convenient because it avoids the multiple visits that will be required for the tissue expansion procedure.

The breast reconstruction procedure will also involve re-creation of the areola and nipple, and an appropriate surgical technique will be used in consultation with the patient.

Organized Plastic Surgery

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) as well as some of the key societies in each state are dedicated to the cause of improving success rates in plastic surgery and supporting patient education. New patients should learn about new procedures and techniques, and various attributes that a good surgeon should have. This can help them in the process of making the right choice of a surgeon for their needs.

Patients need to make discerning choices because some of the surgeons may lack the requisite qualifications or training in plastic surgery, while still presenting themselves as cosmetic or plastic surgeons.

Patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta GA, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive treatments from Dr. Jones.

Boost to the Cause of Patient Awareness

The ASPS, ABPS, and the Utah Plastic Surgery Society (UPSS) recently earned a significant legal victory in their efforts to promote patient awareness about choosing the best plastic surgeon for their needs. A local court had previously dismissed a lawsuit challenging the validity of the patient awareness campaign supported by these organizations. Now the 10th District US Courts of Appeals in Denver, CO has also upheld that dismissal.

The lawsuit had claimed that the patient education campaign run by these societies was causing a loss of business to the non-plastic surgeons. The appellate court’s decision to maintain the dismissal is a crucial victory for organized plastic surgery. The victory also serves a reaffirmation of the ‘Do Your Homework’ public awareness campaign led by the ASPS to improve patient safety.

The campaign had encouraged people to choose an appropriately qualified plastic surgeon for their needs, and not go for surgeons who may not actually have the requisite qualifications or skills. The Appeals Court decided that the defendants had not indulged in any deceptive advertising, and confirmed the previous ruling.

Patients must be aware enough to be in a position to distinguish a qualified plastic surgeon from other lesser trained surgeons who might present themselves as equally qualified.
