The appearance of your breasts can change over time due to a number of factors, taking on a saggy, deflated look. A breast lift raises and reshapes your existing breast tissue to restore a firm, perky profile that’s flattering yet completely natural, often in combination with resizing and centering the nipples and areola for a beautiful final result.
Dr. Truong uses special techniques to reduce scarring and make your result look as natural as possible. For some women, Dr. Truong may recommend including breast implants at the same time as your lift to restore fullness. In most cases, he can perform a combination lift plus implants as a one-stage procedure to minimize anesthesia and downtime.

Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options for your breast lift surgery. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.
When most women think about improving their breast appearance, they often think going larger with breast implants is their only choice. In reality, many women can see significant improvement in their silhouette from a breast lift alone, although including implants at the same time can offer an extra boost as well.
Seeing the best possible breast lift results begins with a consultation with Dr. Truong. During this time, you can talk about the improvements you’d like to see in your figure, and he can advise you on the breast enhancement procedure he feels will best help you meet those goals. This may mean a breast lift performed on its own, or a combination of breast lift plus implants, depending on your hopes for surgery.
Dr. Truong will also go over additional details about what the surgery entails, and what you can expect from your results. Finally, you’ll be given more specific information on what to expect before, during and after your surgery, including tips for a comfortable recovery.
Breast lift surgery normally takes about 2 hours, although this time may vary somewhat depending on whether implants are included at the same time. In some instances, such as for women getting a mommy makeover, a breast lift may be combined with additional procedures that can further affect the length of your surgery. In either case, you can plan on heading home the same day as your surgery without expecting an overnight stay.
After your breast lift, your breasts may feel sore at first, and tight or stretched, particularly if a combination breast augmentation and lift was performed. As swelling decreases, your new look will become gradually more noticeable.
Your final results should be visible by about 6 months after surgery, with younger-looking breasts that appear perkier and feel firmer, and that have centered, forward-pointing nipples and proportionate areola for a new look that’s all you, only better.
