Breast Lift Plastic Surgery (Mastopexy) - Greensboro, North Carolina
You can have the breasts of your youth or achieve the perky breasts you have always desired through a breast lift plastic surgery procedure in Greensboro. Gravity, genetics, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight fluctuation, and aging can cause your breasts to sag and lose their shape. But a breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that reshapes your breasts. You will have lifted, more shapely, natural breasts as a direct result of breast lift surgery. Once lifted, shapely breasts enhance any figure!
After a breast lift procedure with Piedmont Triad board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis, you can expect firmer, more youthful-looking breasts.

In Greensboro, we offer three surgical incisions options for your breast lift procedure:
Board certified Greensboro plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis makes an incision around the areola and vertically (down to the breast crease) and horizontally along the breast crease. This is often described as an anchor-shaped incision.
No Vertical Scar – Periareolar
Female plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis removes excess skin from the breast and is able to achieve the same aesthetic results without the appearance of a vertical scar. Dr. Contogiannis makes a circular incision around the areola to remove excess skin.
Vertical Scar – Lollipop Scar
The incision that may be recommended to address some types of breast ptosis (droop) is a vertical scar incision. Dr. Contogiannis removes excess skin from around the areola and also from the lower part of the breast gland. A scar appears around the areola and also down the front of the breast. This is sometimes called a lollipop scar.
Dr. Contogiannis commonly places an implant when performing breast lift plastic surgery. This is typically done to increase fullness at the top of the breast due to loss of volume from pregnancy or other factors.
Mastopexy in Greensboro Recovery
Following breast lift surgery in Greensboro, you will wear gauze and a surgical bra. Swelling and bruising subsides within a few days, and you can wear a softer support bra as you continue healing. At first, the swelling may make the breasts look a little flat. This is not permanent, and your shape will become evident as the swelling subsides. Your nipples may be numb for a few weeks. In rare cases, this condition is permanent. You should avoid exercise for a month or so. There are scars from the breast lift surgery, as with any surgical procedure, but they will fade with time.
