Breast Lift in Plano & Dallas, TX | Ronald Friedman, M.D.

How Is Breast Lift Surgery Performed?

Dr. Friedman in Plano, Texas performs breast lift surgery under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. The procedure is performed in his AAAASF-accredited surgical facility, the West Plano Plastic Surgery Center, which is located on the campus of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Plano. He strictly uses physicians—not nurses or technicians—to administer your anesthesia.

To perform breast lift (with or without implants), incisions are placed around the nipple-areola. In most patients, a vertical incision extends from the bottom of the areola to the fold beneath the breast. Unlike most surgeons who perform breast lifts, Dr. Friedman typically does not place an extended horizontal incision in the fold beneath the breast except in women with severe sagging. There are no incisions on the upper breast. All sutures are internal. The incisions are sealed with a tissue glue (Dermabond). There are no external stitches, staples, compression bandages, or ACE wraps. Although there are scars from surgery, they generally fade over time.

Pain is usually mild and well-controlled with prescription pain medication. Most patients return to light activities within 3 to 5 days. Heavy lifting and chest workouts should be avoided for 6 weeks.
