Breast Lift

As aging and gravity take their toll on a woman’s figure, the breasts may begin to sag. Fortunately, there is a surgical procedure that can correct unwanted breast sagging. This procedure is known as breast lift surgery, or mastopexy. A breast lift reverses the effects of aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight changes and produces firmer, more attractive, and more youthful breasts.

Achieved with Breast Lift Surgery

Breast sagging (breast ptosis) can occur for any number of reasons, though it is most often attributed to aging. However, even younger women who have naturally large breasts or who have undergone weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding may have noticeable breast sagging that causes their figures to look older and “matronly.”

Dr. Taylor performs breast lift surgery to correct ptosis and restore the appearance of the breasts. In addition to restoring a more youthful breast position on the chest wall, Dr. Taylor will also improve the size and position of the nipples and areolas so that they no longer point downward.

What Does A Breast Lift Entail?

Breast lift surgery restores a more youthful look by improving the shape, firmness, and position of the breasts. Dr. Taylor performs the procedure using one of the following surgical approaches:

Crescent Lift: Dr. Taylor removes a crescent-shaped area of tissue from above the top of the nipple.

Benelli Lift: Dr. Taylor removes a doughnut-shaped area of tissue from around the nipple.

Lollipop Lift: Dr. Taylor removes breast tissue through a lollipop-shaped incision that encircles the areola and goes down to the inframammary fold.

Anchor Lift: Dr. Taylor removes breast tissue through an anchor-shaped incision that encircles the areola, goes down to the inframammary fold, and extends along the fold.

The selected approach varies according to the patient’s needs and desires. If the patient also desires, Dr. Taylor combines breast augmentation with breast lift surgery and inserts implants to boost breast volume while also correcting breast position, firmness, and shape. Some patients may need a concurrent breast reduction with their lift, in which Dr. Taylor also removes more breast tissue to reduce the volume of oversized breasts.

Once the necessary tissue adjustments and removal are complete, the incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures and surgical glue.
