How Does Breast Lift Surgery Work?
The procedure in surgery can vary, based upon the degree of sagging, drooping, and the need to reshape the existing tissue. When performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, the results are a dramatic improvement, with the breasts now reshaped and restored to a youthful position on the chest and excess drooping skin removed. For some patients, the nipples must be moved to a higher location on the breasts for a more beautiful result. The actual nipple structure is moved so the nipples retain function.
The procedure requires incisions, which must be carefully placed to create the most aesthetic result. Our team of skilled, plastic surgeons employs the latest innovations in surgical procedures. As members of the faculty of the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis, each of our surgeons is at the leading edge in the latest developments in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Take advantage of the skills, extensive knowledge, and aesthetic approach we take in breast lift surgery.
Pregnancy, breastfeeding, age, gravity, and weight loss can all play a role in leaving you with saggy, droopy breasts. This condition can be distressing – a once young, firm body now looks older, less vital, and less attractive. Breast lift surgery allows the patient to regain high, firm, plump breasts, through reshaping the existing breast tissue and removing excess skin. Some patients may need to have the appearance of the nipples corrected, particularly if they are stretched, overlarge, or are drooping at the bottom of your breast tissue.
