Why choose to get a Breast Lift?

Patients with sagging breasts often seek out a Breast Lift. Breasts sag due to a number of reasons. Loss of skin elasticity, time, gravity, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding may negatively affect the position and shape of the breasts. A Breast Lift eliminates sagging skin to reduce sag, restore perkiness, and resolve asymmetries. You may be a good candidate for a breast lift if you are satisfied with the size of your breasts but would like more youthful breast contours. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and do not smoke.

What to expect with Breast Lift surgery

Breast Lifts are often performed in conjunction with Breast Augmentation during a single surgical session. This combination procedure is known as an Augmentation Mastopexy and is also called a Breast Augmentation with Lift. Combining a Breast Lift and implants results in increased perkiness, volume, and projection and a reduction in breast sag. Together, you and Dr. Rau will decide which procedures will be performed to achieve your desired results.

There are several Breast Lift incision options, which usually heal well and present minimal scarring:

* Crescent lift (the most minimal lift, leaving a slight scar on the upper areola)
* Circumareolar lift (also called a donut or Benelli lift, creating an incision around the areola)
* Lollipop incision (incision running vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease)
* Anchor lift (also called a Wise pattern (incision around the nipple, vertically from the bottom edge of the areola and then horizontally beneath the breast)

Combining Mastopexy with other procedures

Dr. Rau offers a nuanced approach to breast enhancement by skillfully combining Mastopexy with complementary procedures. Tailoring each treatment plan to individual needs, such as Breast Lift with Augmentation, Liposuction, or Abdominoplasty to achieve comprehensive results. This synergistic approach not only addresses breast sagging but also enhances overall body contours, ensuring a harmonious and balanced outcome.
