BREAST LIFT

A type of enhancement typically used when the breasts have fallen and/or become significantly deflated or asymmetrical.

Through this procedure, the breasts are lifted and reshaped to provide a more youthful and natural appearance. This is done through an incision that typically goes around the pigmented portion of the nipple called the “areola,” may extend vertically to the natural crease under the breast, and then may continue horizontally for a short distance. The droop of the breast, called “ptosis,” determines the length of the incisions necessary to achieve the desired result.
