Breast lift surgery raises and forms the breasts by getting rid of excess skin as well as tightening the surrounding skin and tissue to reshape and support a higher, more balanced look. Over time, a woman's breasts can lose their youthful firmness and appearance. Sagging breasts can occur due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, gravity, aging, and genetics.
In some cases, the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift can help correct this, too. Our surgeons will work together with you on a one-on-one basis to determine whether a breast lift is right for you.
Is This a Good Option For You?
A breast lift may a good option for you if:
You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag, have lost shape and volume
Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
Your nipples and areolas point downward
You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
One breast is lower than the other
You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
You do not smoke
You have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance
What Breast Lifts Won't Do
Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift and augmentation surgery. If you want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and reduction surgery.
