What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift corrects sagging or drooping breasts. Sagging breasts are a result of various factors, such as weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, skin laxity, age, etc. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of breast lift procedures has grown 70 percent since 2000. By removing excess skin and tissue around the breast and areola, the breast can be lifted to achieve a more youthful breast position on the chest wall. A breast lift, however, does not improve the overall fullness of the breast.
What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift?
Patients desiring fullness in addition to a lift should consider a breast augmentation with breast lift. Some patients with significant breast tissue and breast volume may need only a lift to correct sagging breasts. As the areola can become enlarged over time, a breast lift can enhance the shape and size of the nipple as well. An augmentation with mastopexy is often part of the mommy makeover procedure, which is often done in combination with a tummy tuck to correct the adverse effects of pregnancy.
What is the Procedure for a Breast Lift?
Dr. Nimtz will begin your procedure with anesthesia medications administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. Once your comfort is assured, Dr. Nimtz will make an incision so that the underlying breast tissue can be lifted and reshaped to improve your breast contour and firmness. The nipple and areola are repositioned to a natural, more youthful height, and any excess breast skin is removed to compensate for a loss of elasticity. After your breasts are reshaped, and excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened as the incisions are closed and sutures are layered deep within the breast tissue to create and support the newly shaped breasts.
