Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy) New Orleans, LA
About Breast Lift Surgery
Mastopexy (known as a breast lift) is a body contouring procedure that lifts and tightens the breasts by trimming away loose skin and surgically tightening the healthy tissue to result in a more youthful and healthier look. This cosmetic breast surgery is performed for women who have lost breast firmness, size, and shape and who are experiencing breast drooping due to aging and gravity, as well as weight loss or pregnancy. Outstanding advancements in mastopexy techniques have made this aesthetic surgery so effective and successful that new statistics by the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) reveal nearly a 70% increase in demand since 2000. By using the latest methods, Dr. Jules Walters can choose the appropriate technique based upon the degree of sagging present, keeping in mind the desired result.
Let's Get Started
There are women who come to Dr. Jules Walters desiring to have implants only, but after a private assessment, they may discover that a cosmetic breast lift surgery could provide a better outcome. The reason is due to the amount of sagging that is shown. Patients whose breasts have lost a significant amount of laxity typically need a skin removal and tightening surgery to reduce skin looseness and bring the breasts to a perkier position. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts sag significantly below the crease line, a mastopexy (breast lift) can dramatically help their appearance. Candidates contemplating a breast lift ideally will be in good health and at a good weight. Even though additional volume with implants may be desired, in so many cases a surgical lift combined in many cases with fat grafting is all that is needed to add the shape and size that is hoped for.

My husband called him a “genius” today, and I totally agree. Thanks Dr. Walters for everything.
I researched several positions in hopes of finding a great Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Walters was one of my top choices. After meeting with others I knew he was perfect for me. He’s smart, quite aware of the latest technologies, and is very personable. His bed side manner is amazing! I received a mommy makeover which included an extended tummy tuck and a breast lift with fat transfer. My results are amazing and it’s only been 5 weeks. My final results aren’t even in yet. My breast are lifted and full, and there was no silicone needed. What he did see today however was that I developed something called dog ears. But being the amazing plastic surgeon he is, he’s going to schedule an office visit to have them fixed. His expertise is UNMATCHED! His compassion and care for his patients? UNMATCHED. My stomach is the flattest it’s been in forever and I’m not even finished healing yet! I’d highly recommend anyone to him. And before I forget, his staff is also amazing. They are so extremely warm and friendly. If I should ever need anything involving plastics this is the only place I’m going. Thank you Dr. Walters for restoring my confidence and my body.
A breast lift takes usually two hours or more and is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. The timing for this treatment is dependent upon the nature of breast size and sagging. The surgical technique used for a breast lift typically falls into two categories — the technique is defined by the size, location, and nature of the incision. The inverted-T (known as an anchor) and the straight line vertical incisions are the most used methods. The incision is first completed, and any loose, unhealthy skin is excised along with fat and tissue that is not wanted. The skin is then tightened and the breasts are positioned higher and lifted so they appear healthy and younger. In most situations, the size of the areola is reconstructed and reduced to be symmetric with the new placement and shape of the breast. At this point, an implant or fat transfer can be utilized if this was discussed with Dr. Walters ahead of surgery. If the lift is the only procedure being performed, an augmentation surgery with implants can be implemented at a different date in some patients for a more predictable outcome.
What To Expect
Recovery for any type of breast lift is more extensive than a surgery with implants only. After the procedure, you will wear a post operative bra for comfort. A thin tube may be inserted near the location of the incision to help with excess fluid leakage that can often occur after a mastopexy. After surgery, the swelling usually goes away within about a week. Dr. Walters or a member of his team will provide in-depth, home treatment care instructions to help with your healing process. Aesthetic results after a breast lift surgery are noticeable after a few weeks as the breasts take their higher placement on your bustline. Your breasts will feel and appear natural, and you will feel perkier and healthy overall.
