As a woman ages, her skin loses its elasticity and the shape, size and firmness of her breasts can deteriorate. Pregnancy, breast feeding and weight fluctuation can also cause breasts to sag. Breast lift surgery can reshape and raise the breasts, repositioning the nipple to a perkier, more youthful position.
How Does a Breast Lift Work?
Breast lift techniques may vary based on the amount of sagging in the breast, but the most common procedure involves an incision around the areola and down the middle of the breast that follows the natural breast contour. This way the breast can be reshaped, the arola made smaller and the nipple placed higher. The incision start out slightly pinker or darker than the surrounding skin, but continues to fade over time. The breast lift will relocate the nipple and areola to a higher position, reposition the breast tissue to a higher level, remove any remaining excess skin from the breast and reshape all remaining skin. Closing of the remaining skin will help to reshape and lift the breast to the higher position.
Dr Reichner and his employees were so wonderful to me! I was a bit nervous about having surgery, but the Doctor was very kind and reassuring. My breasts look amazing-I have sent several of my friends to him, and each one has been thrilled with their outcome. Thank you Dr Reichner for the confidence you have given me!

Often, if a patient desires, breast augmentation accompanies the surgery to bring more shape back to the breasts. If you’re having an implant inserted along with your breast lift, it will be placed in a pocket directly under the breast tissue, or deeper, under the muscle of the chest wall.
Who Needs a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a good option for patients whose breasts have sagged or are asymmetrical in shape. Patients must be in good health, and their expectations should also be realistic.
Your Breast Lift Consultation
Patients in need of a breast lift are encouraged to schedule a consultation to find out more about the procedure. During the consultation, questions regarding their health and goals will be brought up. At the same time, their breasts will be examined to help determine the details of the procedure.
A breast lift begins with anesthesia. Next, the chosen incisions are created. Excess skin is removed, and the tissues are reshaped. The areolae may be resized or repositioned. Finally, incisions are closed with sutures.
Breast Lift Aftercare
Following the breast lift, patients will be feeling tenderness and minor discomfort around the affected area. Swelling will occur, as well as some bruising. During the recovery period, patients are highly recommended to sleep on their backs. Any rigorous physical activities should be postponed for several weeks until the patient is fully healed.
