Breast Lift Surgery

In a youthful breast, specialized ligaments help to suspend the breast tissue off the chest wall giving the breast a pleasing roundness and upper pole fullness. Breast growth associated with pregnancy or weight gain stretches these ligaments. After pregnancy or significant weight loss, when the breast volume decreases, these ligaments remain stretched allowing the breast tissue migrate low on the chest giving a deflated appearance. The stretched skin also causes the nipple and areola to descend on the breast surface. Lifting the breast (mastopexy), re-suspends the breast tissue on the chest returning fullness to the upper aspect and removing excess skin. The nipple and areola are brought to the center of the breast for an aesthetically pleasing  appearance. A breast lift can be combined with placement of an implant to increase overall volume. A breast lift versus an augmentation is dependent on specific breast measurements. Dr. Hill will make these measurements and combine them with each individual patient's wishes to determine the best option to provide a great outcome. Consultations are free and focus on patient education so an informed decision can be made.
