Full, firm breasts are a hallmark of youth, femininity and beauty, and for many women, an integral part of their body image and confidence. But gravity, pregnancy, aging, weight changes and breastfeeding can cause your breasts to lose elasticity and volume, resulting in a sagging, flattened appearance.

Women turn to Dr. Guenther for breast lift because he offers modern techniques for natural-looking enhancements that last. He collaborates with you, helping you to understand not only the procedure, but also how small changes in the surgical approach can have a large impact on your results.
Dr. Guenther offers a range of incision patterns for breast lift surgery to suit the differing needs of his patients. Incision type may be influenced by factors such as skin quality, breast anatomy or previous breast surgeries. If you want to combine your lift with breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a mommy makeover, this may also affect Dr. Guenther's approach. He will work closely with you to explain how varying methods will create a youthful and natural breast appearance.
Through his extensive training and experience, Dr. Guenther has refined short scar (limited scar) techniques for horizontal-only, periareolar (around the areola) and circumvertical (SPAIR-type) incision patterns. Short scar techniques help to diminish signs of surgery and improve comfort in the short and long term. Women commonly report that these techniques result in an improved breast shape that holds up over time.
Healing & Enjoying Your New Look
Dr. Guenther's modern techniques minimize trauma during the procedure, which makes for a quicker and more comfortable recovery. You will wear a support bra continuously for 2 weeks to help with healing and comfort. Most of the swelling will subside within 2 or 3 weeks, and you should be able to return to your daily activities within 1 to 2 weeks of surgery.
By 3 months, you should have a good idea of what your final results will be. The scars continue to mature for up to a year, and should be as small as possible thanks to Dr. Guenther's scar-minimizing strategies.
Dr. Guenther will work with you to determine the perfect timing for you procedure, and if any complementary treatments may help you with your cosmetic goals.
