THE PROCEDURE

Your breast lift surgery can be achieved through a variety of incision patterns and techniques. The appropriate technique for you will be determined based on
Breast size and shape
The size and position of your areolas
The degree of breast sagging
Skin quality and elasticity as well as the amount of extra skin
STEP 1- Anesthesia
Medications are administered to your comfort during the surgical procedures. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best option for you.

STEP 2- The Incision
There are three common Incision patterns
Around the areolas
Around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease
Around the areola, vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease

STEP 3- Reshaping your breasts
After your doctor makes the Incisions:
The underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve breast contour and firmness
The nipple and areola are repositioned to a natural, more youthful height
If necessary, enlarged areolas are reduced by excising skin at the perimeter.
Excess breast skin is removed to compensate for a loss of elasticity

STEP 4: Closing the Incision
After your breasts are reshaped and excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened as the incision is closed. Some incision lines resulting from breast lift are concealed in the natural breast contour; however, others are visible on the breast surface. Incision lines are permanent, but in most cases will fade and significantly improve over time.
Many women desire the smallest scar possible. However, your plastic surgeon will recommend incisions which best suit your anatomy. Listen to your surgeon and do not diminish result by demanding an incision that will not be appropriate for you.
Sutures are layered deep within the breast tissue to create and support the newly shaped breasts. Sutures, skin adhesives and/or surgical tape may be used close to the skin

STEP 5- See the Results
The results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Overtime, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for breasts which have been restored to a more youthful and uplifted position
