The optimal patient for a breast lift is a woman who desires the restoration of her breasts to their youthful appearance. Over time a woman may notice that her breasts have begun to sag or droop. The drooping of the breasts is common and in many cases due to the natural effects of aging, pregnancy, weight loss, and/or heredity. Many women combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation which includes the use of implants, this option helps enhance breast volume that may be lost over the years. At the Thompson Center for Plastic Surgery, we rejuvenate the breasts by eliminating excess skin and tightening supportive tissue to bring back a youthful breast appearance. A breast lift may also include repositioning and reduction of the size of the areola, which may have darkened or drooped over time.
