Breast Lift

During the breast lift procedure, Clarksville-area plastic surgeon George R. Valentini employs advanced surgical techniques to lift and reshape drooping breasts. Since Dr. Valentini tailors all of his plastic surgery procedures to the specific needs of each individual, the details of the surgery may vary from patient to patient. Typically, though, three incisions are made: one encircles the nipple, the second follows the crease of the breast, and the third runs vertically between the other two incisions. These incisions allow Dr. Valentini to remove excess skin and raise the breast to a higher position on the chest. Women who would like to add more volume to their breasts can choose to have silicone or saline breast implants inserted during the procedure. After breast lift surgery, patients of our Hopkinsville practice are usually able to return to work in about a week. However, it may take several weeks before patients can resume all of their usual activities with complete comfort and safety.
