A variety of factors can cause your breasts to sag. Over time your breasts will naturally begin to sag lower than they once were, but things like pregnancy and weight loss can also play a huge role in the appearance of your breasts. The breast lift procedure allows you to boost your breasts back up where they once were and can give you more confidence in your own skin.
How the breast lift procedure works
Every patient has different needs which we take into account when we discuss your options. In this procedure, incisions are made to sagging or droopy breasts in order to lift the breast and improve the contour. After the incisions are made, the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped, the nipple and areola are repositioned, and any excess breast skin is removed.
The four types of breast lift procedure are:
- Anchor: 3 basic incisions, one around the areola, one vertical to the breast crease, and one horizontal along the breast crease
- Lollipop: 2 basic incisions, one around the areola and one vertical to the breast crease
- Periareolar: 1 incision around the areola
- Crescent: 1 along the top half of the areola
Most patients experience a recovery time of 1-2 weeks so you can be back to your normal activities in no time.
