Breast lift surgery reshapes and lifts the breasts by removing excess, sagging skin and reorganizing the breast tissues. The surgical techniques are highly personalized and are determined by your current breast size and shape, the size and position of your areolas, and your desired results. Most commonly, an incision is made around the areola and may also extend from the areola to the breast crease.
Women in need of more extensive surgical correction may also require a horizontal incision along the breast crease. Excess skin and tissue are removed, and the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve its contour. The areolas are repositioned higher on the breasts and may be resized if they have become enlarged. Once the breasts have been reshaped and repositioned, absorbable sutures will be used to close the incisions, and your surgery will be complete.
