Women’s breasts naturally experience changes throughout their lifetime. Pregnancy and nursing, fluctuations in weight, nursing, aging and hereditary factors can all cause changes in the breasts to occur. If you are experiencing drooping, decrease in volume or stretches areolas, a breast life in Concord and Boston can help.

What is a Breast Lift?

Breast Lift surgery is done to correct sagging or drooping breasts, loss of breast volume and stretched areolas. The goal is to create a more youthful, perkier appearance to the breasts.

How is Breast Lift surgery done?

Breast Lift surgery entails removing excess breast skin and reshaping the breast. The technique used depends on multiple factors, including breast size and shape, areola size, degree of ptosis, or sagging, and the elasticity of the skin.

In general, this breast surgery in Boston is done by removing excess breast skin and moving the nipple and areola to a higher position. A stretched areola will be reduced in size and any skin that above the areola will be brought beneath the breast to reshape the contour. The skin will then be tightened, and incisions will be closed.  A breast lift can also be combined with a Boston Breast Augmentation and other procedures for a Mommy Makeover.

What are my incision options?

There are three main incision options when it comes to Breast Lift surgery. These include the T-shaped incision, the Lollipop incision, and the Periareolar incision.

The Anchor incision runs around the areola, down vertically to the breast fold and then horizontally along the fold. The Lollipop incision runs around the areola and down vertically to the breast fold, mimicking the shape of a lollipop. The Periareolar incision simply runs around the areola. Your consultation with Concord Plastic Surgeon Dr. Narasimhan will determine which incision technique is right for you.

What should I expect during recovery from Breast Lift surgery?
