As you age, in the case of major weight loss or breastfeeding, or if you have large breasts your breast tissue may begin to sag and even cause your nipples to stretch and point down. A breast lift can give you perkier breasts giving you a fuller, more youthful look.
A breast lift can help improve the look of your breasts by lifting and improving shape a fullness. Sagging can occur for various reasons, but Dr. Basile can assist by removing excess skin and giving you perkier, better-positioned breasts.
If your breasts are no longer firm and sag causing you to be self-conscious, you may be a candidate for a breast lift. You must be a non-smoker and in a healthy medical condition for this procedure to ensure optimum results. If you plan to have children, you may want to postpone your procedure as this will alter your outcome.
To lift the breast, Dr. Basile will remove unnecessary sagging skin, tighten the remaining skin and reshape the breast with existing tissues. In many cases, it is necessary that the areola is reduced in size and repositioned to the new shape of your breasts. The procedure will vary based on the size of your nipples, the amount of excess skin, and existing shape of your breasts.
Incisions can be made around the areola, around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, or a combination of the two with an incision also below the breast crease. Therefore, scarring from the procedure will vary based on the incision necessary to achieve your desired results.
