A breast lift is a surgical procedure to address sagging or lost volume in your breasts. It’s a great option for women who aren’t looking for larger breasts but desire an improved chest profile.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia and takes between 2-4 hours to complete, depending on the degree of sagging and the amount of tissue that must be removed. A breast lift gives you a more youthful chest profile by lifting your breasts and making them firmer and more perky.
All of these procedures can improve the appearance of your breasts. The differences lie in how your breast tissue is manipulated during surgery.
A breast lift focuses on your skin. There’s no change in the volume of your breasts. Your existing breast tissue is lifted and excess skin is removed. That creates a breast profile that is firm and positioned higher on your chest. The nipples are often reduced in size and repositioned during a breast lift.
Breast augmentation involves placing implants beneath your skin to increase the size of your breasts. If your breasts are sagging, excess skin can also be removed, which is the same basic approach as a breast lift.
With breast reduction, Dr. Towle removes a portion of your breast tissue to reduce the overall size of your breasts. Excess skin is also removed, which provides a lifting effect.
Your breasts are positioned higher immediately after your procedure, but there is also swelling in the days and weeks following your surgery. As your body heals, that swelling subsides and the effects of your breast lift become apparent.
Your final results are natural-looking and help you feel more confident about your appearance. You can extend those results by wearing a supportive and properly fitted bra to prevent additional sagging.
