Breast Lift

Breast drooping can significantly impact the appearance of your breasts, and it is almost impossible to prevent it from occurring. Sagging breasts occur when the breast tissue becomes weak, which can be the result of pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. Women with breast ptosis may feel that they appear aged and lack confidence in their body. Breast lift surgery is designed to restore perkiness, fullness, and shape to sagging breasts.

Who Can Benefit?

Post-Pregnancy

Your breasts go through a number of changes during pregnancy. After one or more children, you may find that your breasts lack the youthful look and shape they once had. Many women struggle to feel confident in their appearance after having children, and this is largely due to their poor breast appearance. A breast lift can restore your pre-pregnancy breasts.

Post-Weight Loss

Many women who are overweight tend to have larger breasts. During the weight-loss process, you can lose a significant amount of fat from your breasts. However, losing weight cannot improve skin elasticity, meaning many women are left with drooping breasts afterward. A breast lift can improve the aesthetics of your breasts to highlight your new, fitter physique.

Natural Aging

While there are many myths about what speeds up breast sagging, the fact is that aging takes a significant toll on our breast tissue. Every woman is different, but many will find that their breast tissue weakens and they experience breast ptosis over time. Little can be done to reverse the natural aging process, but a breast lift can turn back the clock and restore your youthful, perky breasts.

What Do You Desire?

Firm, Perky Breasts

A breast lift uses internal sutures to lift and support the breast tissue. The goal of a breast lift is to reduce sagging, which is achieved by repositioning the breast tissue so it sits above the inframammary line. This process creates breasts that sit higher on the chest, have a perkier projection, and have a firmer feel and appearance.

Areola Reduction

Many women with sagging breasts, especially after weight loss, have disproportionately large areolas. This can affect the balance and appearance of your breasts. During your breast lift surgery, your areolas can be reduced to a more proportional size. The nipple-areolar complex is then positioned to have a more aesthetically pleasing projection.

A Natural Appearance

The goal of any plastic or cosmetic procedure is to achieve flawless results. One benefit of the breast lift procedure is that you can maintain the look and feel of your natural breasts. Women with adequate breast volume may feel that a breast augmentation will provide them with poorly portioned breasts. A breast lift keeps your balanced appearance while maintaining a natural aesthetic.

Larger Breasts

Many women with breast sagging find that their breasts lack attractive volume. However, breast augmentation alone performed on patients with sagging breast tissue can lead to complications and an unattractive breast appearance down the line. Women who desire larger breasts should consider combining a breast lift with their breast augmentation for beautiful, long-lasting results.

Addressing Your Concerns

Frequently Asked Questions

  • HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE BREAST PTOSIS?

    Breast ptosis is identified by the position of the lower breast tissue and the nipples. Breast sagging begins to occur when the lower breast tissue sits below the inframammary line. Patients with moderate to severe ptosis will have nipples that point downward.

  • WHAT TYPE OF ANESTHESIA IS USED DURING BREAST LIFT SURGERY?

    Breast lift surgery is performed using a local or general anesthetic. The type of anesthesia to be used for your procedure will depend on the extent of correction needed to help you achieve your desired results.

  • WHERE WILL MY INCISIONS BE PLACED TO PERFORM MY BREAST LIFT?

    The placement of your incisions will vary depending on the type of correction you require. Incisions can range from just around the areolas, around the areolas and down the breast tissue, or in severe cases, they can also run along the breast crease.

  • WILL I LOSE NIPPLE SENSATION FOLLOWING MY BREAST LIFT?

    Some patients may temporarily lose nipple sensation during their recovery period; however, they should gain sensation within six months after their procedure.

  • HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?

    A breast lift is designed to provide patients with long-lasting support of the breasts, which allows women to maintain a quality breast appearance for years.
