Breast Lift

As we age or in response to body changes such as weight gain or pregnancy, support structures stretch and loosen resulting in a sagging appearance. When determining if you an ideal candidate for breast lift, we initially focus on the relation of the nipple to the rest of the breast and overall position on the chest wall. The nipple should be close to the center of the breast, so that you can see normal, non pigmented skin of the breast before you see non pigmented skin of the stomach – it is less ideal to have the nipple on the bottom of the breast or facing straight down. Additionally, the position of the nipple should be somewhere around the halfway point of the upper arm or between the elbow and top of the shoulder. If either the nipple is on the bottom of the breast or significantly below the halfway point of the arm, we usually recommend a breast lift.

Depending on the degree of ptosis (or sagging) and correction desired by the patient, various lifting techniques can be used to lift the position of the nipple and give a more desirable and youthful look. As a general rule, the more sagging or lifting required, the more incision length is required to achieve an effective lift. The addition of an implant can add volume to the upper breast and cleavage further enhancing the result to a more supple, youthful breast.
