  Breast Lift  
     
 

Pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss or gain, or the natural aging process can cause breasts to lose their natural elasticity and breasts may begin to sag or hang. Breast lift can take years off your body by correcting a drooping bust line and restoring your curves to their youthful state.

During the procedure, excess skin and tissue are trimmed away and the bustline is tightened and lifted. Remaining tissue and the nipples will be repositioned to create the most natural-looking results. Risks include scarring, temporary bruising, swelling, and loss of feeling in the breasts or nipples. Nonetheless, breast lift is considered an extremely safe, effective procedure. The procedure takes one or more hours to complete and is often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation

Breast Lift Technique:

The breast lift technique involves three incisions that form an anchor shape extending from the nipple and aerola. The plastic surgeon will then trim away excess skin, lift breast tissue and suture it into the elevated position. Usually, the nipple and aerola must be repositioned and sutured in place. 

 
 

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

Good candidates for breast lifts may have breasts that sag, breasts that lack substance or firmness, and nipples and areolas that point downward.

What are the Advantages of a Breast Lift?

A breast lift can:

• Reverse the effects of sagging breasts.
• Correct imbalances in shape, size or look of the breasts.
• Reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple).
• Regain the volume and look of breasts prior to pregnancy and nursing.
• Reverse the effects of stretched, saggy skin caused by significant weight loss.
• Can be used to reduce breast size.

Breast Lift Recovery:

Plastic surgeons provide a complete list of pre and post operative instructions in order to reduce the risk of complications and allow for a smooth recovery. Breast lift patients can usually return to work and participate in most normal activities within a few days time, unless a breast augmentation is performed at the same time. In this case, participation in most normal activities may require two weeks of time. Most patients are pleased with the outcome of the procedure.
