Before & After Photo Gallery For almost every woman, it's not a matter of "if" her breasts will sag, it's about "when" and "how much." For many women, breast lift surgery in Baltimore, Maryland with Dr. Dean Kane can help restore a youthful figure.
Pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss or gain and the aging process can cause your breasts to lose their natural elasticity. As they begin to sag or hang, you may find yourself seeking baggy clothing to disguise an unattractive profile, feeling self-conscious or even avoiding certain social and intimate situations altogether.
For our patients in Baltimore, breast lift surgery, medically known as mastopexy, can take years off the body's appearance by correcting a drooping bust line and restoring curves to their youthful state. If you're ready to find out more, request a personal consultation with Dr. Kane.
Dr. Kane performs all of his breast lift procedures in his Baltimore, Maryland office. During the typical breast lift procedure, Dr. Kane makes incisions around the areolas then down and under the breast inside the crease. He removes excess skin and tightens and lifts the bust line. Breast lift surgery can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or with an implant to give more fullness to the breasts. It is also often performed in conjunction with breast reduction surgery.
For some women, a variation known as a "donut pexy" is a good choice. In this procedure, incisions are confined to the rim of the areolas and skin is removed from this area only. Dr. Kane most often uses this approach with patients who want implants to increase their size at the same time they're having their breasts lifted.
Dr. Kane uses twilight sedation for his breast lift procedures, enabling his patients to avoid the few days of grogginess and nausea that often accompany general anesthesia. Most of his Baltimore breast lift patients experience mild discomfort after their surgery.
You can expect some amount of swelling, bruising and change in breast and nipple sensation, but these after-effects subside within a few to several days. You'll need to rest and avoid strenuous activity for a short time, but you'll probably be ready to go back to work in about a week.
