What is a radio frequency - assisted breast lift?

A radiofrequency-assisted breast lift is a non-surgical minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to enhance the appearance of the breasts. In contrast to a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction, this type of lift does not involve invasive incisions or excess skin removal.

Radiofrequency (RF) energy heats tissue to stimulate collagen production and encourage skin tightening and firming. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon can also remove small amounts of unwanted fatty breast tissue. The results are temporary and there is no associated recovery.

What cosmetic concerns does a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure treat?

  • Breast Shape & Size: RF energy alters the appearance of the breasts in two ways by stimulating collagen production and also liquefying fat cells for improvements in breast shape, breast contours, and for body contouring. Mommy Makeover: While an RF breast lift provides a more subtle result than surgery, the procedure can be added onto other breast surgeries as part of a larger mommy makeover.

Who is the ideal candidate for a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure?

The ideal candidate for a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure is seeking a modest enhancement to sagging of the breasts. A radiofrequency-assisted breast lift is not recommended for those who are under 18, pregnant or breastfeeding, or who have breast sagging falling below the ribcage or inframammary line.

What is the average recovery associated with a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure?

Complete recovery from a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift typically takes one weeks. Most candidates return to work after one to two days. Strenuous activities should be limited for a few days following the treatment.

What are the potential side effects of a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure?

Possible side effects following a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure include swelling, redness, bruising, and temporary changes in sensation.

What can someone expect from the results of a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure?

The results of a radiofrequency-assisted breast lift procedure will develop over six months after the initial procedure as collagen production increases and takes effect. The results last three to five years. Significant weight loss, weight fluctuations, or pregnancy will affect the results.

Breast lift can be used to address various aspects of your breasts’ appearance.

  • Sagging breasts.

  • Breasts that have lost shape and volume.

  • Breasts with a flatter, elongated shape.

  • Nipples that, when unsupported, fall below the breast crease.

  • Nipples and areolas that point downward.

  • Stretched skin and enlarged areolas.

  • A breast that is lower than the other.

This treatment is excellent for older breast implants.
