A breast lift is a surgical procedure to raise sagging or drooping breasts. Also known as mastopexy, the procedure involves removing excess skin and tightening existing tissue to restore the breasts’ youthful appearance. A breast lift can also reduce the size of areolas that have grown larger and wider over time.
With a modern approach to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Blumenauer collaborates with patients to ensure they’re satisfied with their results.
Dr. Blumenauer performs multiple types of breast lifts, including:
The circumareolar technique involves creating a crescent or full incision around the areola to lift the breast tissue subtly.
For moderate elevation, Dr. Blumenauer may recommend the circumvertical technique, which involves creating a vertical incision towards the lower breast fold to shape and tighten the tissue.
This technique provides elevation and support for individuals with excessive sagging. Along with a vertical incision, Dr. Blumenauer creates a horizontal extension to control the breast shape while lifting and tightening the underlying tissue.
After a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Blumenauer can recommend the appropriate technique for younger-looking breasts.
Dr. Blumenauer performs a complete medical history review and physical exam to determine whether you’re a candidate for a breast lift. He may recommend a breast lift if you:
Dr. Blumenauer commonly performs a breast lift in conjunction with a breast augmentation. This allows for a simultaneous enhancement of breast size and appearance.
After the administration of anesthesia, Dr. Blumenauer creates an incision on your breasts to access and reshape the underlying tissue. He then removes excess skin and tissue to lift the breasts into a more youthful position.
Dr. Blumenauer also repositions the areolas and may remove the skin at the perimeter if they are enlarged. Finally, he sutures the underlying tissue and outer incision to support the lifted breasts.
