Breast Lift Munster and Hobart
Dr. Frank helps women achieve a more symmetrical and youthful appearance through breast lift. He offers years of experience performing the surgery and is the holder of a federal patent for periareolar mastopexy, which focuses on reducing the appearance of scars in the final results.
Typically, Dr. Frank recommends the surgery for women who:
- Have always had drooping breasts and are seeking an improvement.
- Following weight change or childbirth, want to improve their breasts and the position of their nipples.
While augmentation focuses on adding volume, breast lift helps Munster-area patients improve the aesthetics of their breasts, restore youthfulness, and create balance without the use of an implant.
Dr. Frank’s Approach to Breast Lift
During the initial consultation, Dr. Frank describes the breast lift procedure and answers any questions patients have about surgery and outcomes. He prioritizes patient education and safety, which gives those in his care confidence in his recommendations.
Through these discussions, patients get to know Dr. Frank and receive guidance in their decision to have plastic surgery. Our practice also provides a price quote for everything excluding postoperative medications. Following a second visit, preoperative testing and exams, and scheduling, patients are ready for surgery.
About the Procedure
Dr. Frank conducts breast lift surgery for Munster-area patients in a JCAHO-accredited facility. Patients receive general anesthesia to keep them comfortable through the procedure.
Surgeons can perform a breast lift using several different approaches. Before surgery, Dr. Frank advises patients about the technique he will use based on his experience and on the results they want to achieve.
As an example, a periareolar mastopexy employs a single incision around the areola. Dr. Frank’s patented implantable prosthesis takes the pressure off the skin edge, reducing the appearance of scars and creating a more reliable outcome. However, this approach is best for patients with limited droop, while women with significant needs may require other techniques.
Dr. Frank often combines breast lift with augmentation to achieve the symmetry and fullness his patients want. Some patients prefer to have one surgery, evaluate the way they look, and then come back for the other procedure. Our practice is happy to discuss options with patients before they make their decision.
Recovery from Breast Lift
Most Munster breast lift patients tell us that recovery is fairly painless. The skin is usually not very tender, and so incisions cause less discomfort. Most women are back to work within a week.
Typically, Dr. Frank advises patients to avoid activities that cause the breasts to move significantly—including running and heavy exercise—for up to two months. Limiting these activities can help patients reduce scarring and create the youthful and attractive results they want to achieve.
