Breast lift

Breast lift

Factors as pregnancy, breast-feeding, rapid fluctuations of weight and decreased elasticity of skin with age impact the shape and fleshiness of each woman’s breast. This is why the breast lift intervention aims at improving substantially the appearance and shape of the breast. The procedure’s aim is tissue lifting, pre-positioning of the areola and a better shape. It is important to know that the breast lift itself can improve the breast contour but it cannot make it bigger. Solely combining the procedures of lifting and augmentation of the breast with implants can demonstrate such a result.

The problem with drooping breast can be solved either by means of concentric lifting, where the incision is around the areola itself, or by means of a technique, in which an incision is made in the form of the letter T in the area of the inframammary fold and to the nipple. The first solution is chosen when the breast is comparatively small and not very flaccid, and the second - when the drooping is considerable.

The Procedure
