Breast Lift Techniques at Our Tijuana Practice
A breast lift procedure is designed for women who have lost the natural elasticity of their breasts, causing them to hang or sag. Most women experience this due to aging, weight loss or gain, or pregnancy. Breasts have this natural tendency to lose their shape and “perkiness,” but with a breast lift at Dr. Bucio’s Tijuana practice, a more youthful appearance can be restored and a more feminine figure can result.
Good candidates for breast lift surgery may have one or more of the following conditions:
– Breasts that hang low, or sag
– Breasts that lack firmness or substance
– Nipples and areolas that point downward, particularly if they are below the breast crease
If a patient is also concerned about breast size, a breast lift may be combined with a breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery. This gives breasts the contoured, youthful look most of our patients desire.
Breast lift surgery, performed by Dr. Bucio at his Tijuana clinic, can last between two and four hours. During this time, Dr. Bucio will make an anchor-shaped incision following the natural contour of the breast. Excess tissue and skin will be trimmed away, and the bust line will be tightened and lifted to reshape the breast. Dr. Bucio will then reposition the remaining tissue and the nipple to ensure the most natural-looking results.
After the Breast Lift Procedure
After a breast lift procedure, temporary side effects include numbness, swelling, bruising and discomfort, but each of these should subside within the first week. However, healing after a breast lift procedure is a gradual process, and it is recommended that you avoid work, heavy lifting and straining for the first few weeks after surgery.
Proper security measures are taken during breast lift surgery at the Tijuana clinic of Dr. Bucio, and our team of professionals will do everything they can to make your visit as safe and comfortable as possible.
