The Many Unique Benefits of a Breast Lift -- Orlando Plastic Surgeon Explains

Dr. James A. Matas Discusses How a Breast Lift Can Address a Number of Common Aesthetic Conditions That Often Result From Weight Fluctuations, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding, the Environment, or Other Factors

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - Dr. James A Matas, an Orlando plastic surgeon, has been in practice for over thirty years, which has afforded him the benefit of seeing firsthand his patients' continual satisfaction long after the initial treatment has been performed. For patients affected by a sagging appearance in the breasts, known as "ptosis," Dr. Matas can perform a breast lift procedure designed to restore firmness to the skin and a more youthful appearance to the breasts with long-lasting results. Dr. Matas says this procedure is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the U.S.

In a recent blog post titled "The Unique Benefits Of Breast Lift Revealed," Dr. Matas explains the specific concerns that can be addressed by a breast lift as opposed to breast augmentation. "The purpose of a breast lift is to remove redundant skin and a very small amount of breast tissue," says Dr. Matas. He notes that there are many factors that can lead to breast sag and inelastic skin, including substantial weight loss or gain, sun damage, or sustained periods of breastfeeding. A breast lift allows excess, loose skin to be removed, the remaining skin to be tightened and smoothed, and the breasts to be lifted for a more youthful, "perky" appearance.

According to Dr. Matas, around 50% of his patients who elect to have a breast lift also choose to simultaneously undergo breast augmentation. By combining these two procedures, patients are able to achieve a fuller breast volume while correcting breast sag to achieve their ideal look. Dr. Matas says, "By performing an examination, I can clearly determine whether a breast lift is necessary -- with or without a simultaneous breast augmentation -- or whether a breast augmentation alone would achieve the results that the patient is seeking."

At the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Matas says the breast surgery consultation process is used to produce a customized treatment plan that will address each patient's unique needs, during which he answers all questions and explains what the patient can expect from beginning to end. "I [also] review photographic cases of patients that have had the surgery that I am recommending. I give them a tour of the surgical facilities, stressing the importance of office surgery accreditation and our use of MD anesthesia."

Dr. Matas reassures his Orlando plastic surgery patients considering a breast lift that, despite their fears, the vast majority of breast lift procedures do not necessitate removing the nipple or areola, so that patients can maintain breast and nipple sensation. Dr. Matas highlights that, though the breast lift procedure can take 4-5 hours to complete, the recovery is often relatively fast. While strenuous upper body exercises are limited for 6 weeks, most patients are able to return to work one week after their procedure.

Dr. Matas says that a breast lift can ultimately be very beneficial for women who are dissatisfied with the physical changes that often occur to the breasts over time. He notes that a breast lift can not only provide significant breast enhancement, but the procedure can ultimately lead to years of satisfactory results.
