Corrects loose, sagging breasts by reshaping the breasts, raising the nipples to a higher position and restoring breast firmness. Can reduce the size of the areola (pigmented skin surrounding the nipple), when desired. Generally performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with sedation; general anesthesia may be recommended. Complements: May be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation where greater volume is desired.
You may be a good candidate for breast lift surgery if you have any of the following conditions:
- breasts are pendulous, but are a size that is satisfactory to you
- breasts lack substance or firmness
- nipples and areolas point downward, especially if they are positioned below the breast crease
