How is a breast lift performed?
An Atlanta breast lift is performed by removing excess breast tissue and raising the breast to provide a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Your nipple may be repositioned to a higher location and excess areolar skin may also be removed.
Depending on the size and shape of your breasts, board certified Atlanta cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mark Crispin may choose one of three incision options. The incision chosen by Dr. Crispin will be based on your anatomical features and tailored to meet your exact needs.
Who should consider a breast lift?
Any woman who is unhappy with sagging, droopy breasts may wish to consider a breast lift. Breasts can sag due to numerous factors including aging, weight loss, pregnancy and heredity. With a breast lift, Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Crispin rejuvenates your breast appearance, restoring a youthful and appealing profile and breast shape.
Am I a candidate for a breast lift?
Candidates for a breast lift are dissatisfied with the sagging appearance of their breasts. In addition, an ideal candidate should:
- Not smoke
- Be in generally good health
- Be prepared for a surgical procedure and breast surgery recovery period
- Have realistic expectations of the results possible
Can a breast lift reduce the size of my breasts?
A breast lift can lift sagging breasts and remove excess skin, which in effect makes the breast smaller. However, if your breasts are overly-large, an Atlanta breast reduction procedure may be a better option for you. During your initial consultation, Dr. Crispin will assess the size and shape of your breasts and help you determine if a breast lift is right for you.
Can a breast lift increase volume?
A breast lift elevates the breasts but cannot enhance lost volume. Many women choose to combine breast lift surgery with an Atlanta breast augmentation to improve the position, shape and volume of the breasts. This option will increase your recovery period, but may be right for your desired outcome.
