As women age, the skin loses its elasticity. This can often happen after pregnancy as well. Breast lift surgery is a way to lift and reshape the breast, creating a more youthful and attractive breast.
A breast lift can boost your self-confidence by restoring your breasts to a more youthful state. If you experience breast sagging due to any of the following, a breast lift may be right for you:
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Weight loss
During your breast lift, Dignity Health Medical Foundation plastic surgeons will raise and reshape your sagging breasts. Our team will remove excess skin and reposition the remaining tissue and nipples, thus improving your breast's shape and appearance. A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola - the darker skin surrounding the nipple.
If your breasts are small or have lost volume, getting breast implants in conjunction with your breast lift can increase their firmness and size.
Before your breast lift, you’ll meet with one of our plastic surgeons to discuss your personal appearance goals, the different options available to help you achieve those goals, and the realistic expectations you may have after surgery.
