About Breast Lift Surgery
If you are happy with the overall size of your breasts but just want a slight change, a breast lift may be the answer. A lift can dramatically improve the shape and appearance of your breasts, leaving you with a youthful profile and renewed confidence. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi can trim away any excess breast tissue, reposition sagging or low breasts and nipples, and ensure that your bustline is uniformed and symmetrical. He can perform the procedure in conjunction with a breast reduction or as a standalone treatment as needed. You can find out more and see if you're a good candidate by scheduling a consultation at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY today.
During the initial consultation and after a thorough exam, we will help determine if a breast lift is the right surgery for you. Ideal candidates for this operation are women who:
- Have realistic ideas about what breast lift surgery can do
- Have breasts that sag or need a better shape
- Have breasts that hang, are stretched out, or are asymmetrical
- Have nipples that point downward or rest underneath the breasts
- Have lost skin elasticity with weight loss, pregnancy, or age

"43 Years Old 3 Kids - full breast lift with implants-Louisville, KY - I would highly recommend Dr Mizaguchi! !!! He is truly an artist in any procedure he performs!!! He is very personable, Knowledgeable , and honest. He takes a lot of pride in his work. He wants it to look just as fantastic as the patient does. He will not perform a procedure on you if he feels it is not needed . This says a lot about the Doctor and surgery center. If you are looking for a doctor that is well educated and very knowledgeable and up to date on all the technology out there you have GOT to at least have a consultation with Dr. Mizaguchi. He is well worth it to travel to I had some unexpected things happen during recovery and Dr. Mizaguchi was not going to let me be discharged until everything was stable I was truly gratefulthat he was my doctor when things went wrong. We all want a text book surgery but the reality is that things can happen out of everyone's control and having a great doctor like Mizaguchi made the experience complications and all a positive experience .

I could not be happier with the results from these procedures performed by Dr Mizuguchi. I get more compliments from people. The results exceeded my expectations. The nurses and staff are also very helpful and friendly. I am an extremely pleased patient and will recommend him to everyone.Patsy in Louisville, KY"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / May 08, 2019

What to Expect
Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgery. There will be many factors to discuss prior to the surgery, including where the incision will be placed. There are three commonly practiced incision points made in lift surgery:
- Incision made along each areola
- Incision made along each areola, plus a vertical incision down to the crease under the breasts
- Incision made along each areola, plus a vertical incision down to the crease under the breast and another horizontal line following the direction of the breast fold
The incision is usually chosen based on how invasive the lift needs to be. This procedure will produce surgery scars; however, our plastic surgeon will do everything possible to make the scars less visible or easily concealed. We will also provide information on how to best care for your surgical wounds for more attractive results.
With breast lift surgery, you will see results right after the treatment in the shape of your breasts, but the final result will be visible after the swelling from surgery subsides. The recovery will vary since many patients will have a breast lift in combination with another plastic surgery procedure, such as a breast augmentation, breast reduction, or tummy tuck. You will be urged to do light activities, such as slowly moving around the room, or spending a few minutes standing within the first 48 hours to stimulate blood circulation. There should be no heavy lifting or strenuous activity involving the chest whatsoever. You can restart your normal activities within 2 – 3 weeks, but exercise should not be attempted for 6 – 8 weeks. There is a myth that women who have breast lift surgery never have to wear a bra again. This is not true as you will want to wear a bra to keep the breasts in the right position. The breast skin will continue to age regardless of this surgical intervention, but it should not be as severe as it was before breast lift surgery.
