Breast lift surgery or mastopexy is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure that addresses flat or sagging breasts and restores their natural youthful shape. Loss of skin elasticity due to aging, pregnancy, genetics and/or breastfeeding are the main factors contributing to sagging breasts. A breast lift addresses this aesthetic concern by eliminating excess skin and tissue, resolving droopiness, and elevating the breasts to an aesthetically pleasing position. However, traditional breast lift involves incisions and scars, which makes most women hesitant to go ahead with the procedure. Fortunately, skilled plastic surgeons have come up with a minimally-invasive technique – the BodyTite breast lift or scarless breast lift. The procedure can provide women with beautiful, firm, perky, youthful looking breasts – without the long incisions, scars or extended downtime associated with surgery.
The minimally invasive breast lift performed using the FDA-approved BodyTite™ utilizes Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology. The BodyTite handpiece is applied to the treatment area, while the device’s cannula is carefully inserted beneath the skin through a small incision. The device and cannula work together to deliver radiofrequency energy that can provide immediate skin contraction at the surface of the skin. The system also stimulates the production of subsurface collagen fibers to improve skin structure and provides superior skin tightening benefits. Unlike traditional breast lift surgery that requires general anesthesia, the scarless procedure requires only local anesthesia. BodyTite can provide surgical quality results without significant downtime or weeks of recovery. Importantly, the BodyTite breast lift resolves drooping breasts, tightens loose skin, and enhances the shape of the breasts, without leaving any scars.
The key benefits of the procedure are:
- Eliminates excess skin and tissue, resolves droopiness, and elevates the breasts to an aesthetically pleasing position without invasive surgical methods
- Reshapes the breasts to a more youthful contour
- Improves breast symmetry
- Immediate skin tightening, with results continuing to improve over time
- Improved skin structure with collagen production
- Needs only local anesthesia, which means lower anesthesia-related risks and short downtime
- Shorter recovery time than the conventional breast lift
- Natural looking, long-lasting results
The BodyTite breast lift procedure is relatively simple, but not every woman is an good candidate. To be a good candidate you should be healthy, not smoke, not have a history of breast cancer or prior breast radiation, and have not had or do not have breast implants. Also, the candidate should have realistic expectations about the outcome.
Although the procedure is minimally-invasive, mild pain, swelling, bruising, redness and numbness is expected after the procedure, which will subside on their own. However, follow your surgeon’s post-treatment instructions diligently to make your recovery smoother and easier.
Initial results can be seen immediately after the procedure, whereas the final results of the procedure are noticeable in as little as one week, but become more pronounced after three to six months. Visible results are usually seen after 6-12 weeks. Most patients resume their normal activities soon after the scarless breast lift.
