Breast Lift

A Breast Lift is designed to lift and reshape the breast.  The normal appearance of the breast has the nipple and areola at the apex of the dome of the breast and pointing forward.  In many cases as the breast loses elasticity the nipple and areola begin to face downward with a certain degree of stretched skin.

Surgery: Outpatient
Est. Surgery Time: 2 - 3 Hours
Recovery: Walking is encouraged right away


What is a BREAST LIFT?

The surgery relies on incisions around the areola and down to the crease to permit repositioning of the areola and tightening of the skin.  The areola is not removed but in cases where it has stretched out it is made smaller.  Breast implants may be placed at the same time if additional volume is desired.  

The Breast Lift Consultation

A thorough discussion of your desires and anticipated outcomes is the first step in the consultation process.  An examination of the breasts to evaluate symmetry, balance and skin quality follows.  After a review of your medical history and medications a specific plan is devised.  This plan includes the most appropriate surgical option, costs involved, etc.
