Breast Lift

Surgery

Perky breasts are often the mark of a youthful figure, but for many women, time, pregnancy, and struggles with their weight have robbed them of full and firm breasts. The breasts, more than any other area of the body, are prone to sagging over time. Unfortunately, there isn’t a natural correction available to reverse laxity in the breast tissue. Breast lift surgery is designed to restore firmness and youthful projection to sagging breasts by lifting and supporting the breast tissue.

How Can Breast Lift Surgery Help?

For many women, their breasts play a key role in creating youthful, feminine curves. A breast lift can help restore these curves in women with adequate breast volume who have begun to experience breast ptosis (sagging). A breast lift can also significantly improve breast augmentation results for women who lack volume and suffer from breast droop. Dr. Wilson customizes each breast lift procedure to provide the individual patient with results that best suit her needs and that highlight her body’s natural physique.


Identifying Breast Ptosis

Mild

Women with mild breast ptosis have a small portion of lower breast tissue that sits below the inframammary crease. Generally, the nipples still have a good projection and point outward.

Moderate

Women with moderate breast ptosis have a significant portion of lower breast tissue that sits below the inframammary crease. The nipples may have also begun to point downward.

Severe

Women with severe breast ptosis have the majority of their lower breast tissue sitting below the inframammary crease. The nipples will have begun to droop and, in many cases, point down toward the floor.
