During breast lift surgery, the breasts are raised to a more flattering position and loose, excess skin is trimmed away. Remaining skin is tightened and the nipples are lifted, making breasts appear full and more youthful. At our Connecticut practice, we recommend breast lift surgery for women whose breasts have begun to droop with age, women whose skin has been stretched by pregnancy, and women whose weight loss has resulted in a loss of volume in the breasts.
Breast lift surgery is not intended to enlarge breasts; rather, the procedure is designed to restore a more youthful shape. At our Connecticut practice, we can combine a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery for women who are seeking larger breasts. Breast augmentation is particularly effective for adding volume to the upper part of the breast.
