Breast Reduction/Lift (Mastopexy)
Local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, average time 2-3 hours. Recovery is usually 1 week. Age, pregnancy, and weight fluctuation all affect breast structure. The goal is to restore breast shape and nipple position to a natural and youthful appearance. All efforts are made to minimize scars placed on the breast.
Local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, average time 1 hr. Recovery is usually 2-7 days. Fat grafting is used for facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, and buttock augmentation. Fat is harvested from an area of the patient’s body (usually abdomen or flanks). It is then processed and injected for aesthetic and reconstructive purposes. Fat is a living tissue and, therefore, is a permanent filler once it becomes integrated.
