A breast lift raises and tightens the breasts to help restore their original shape. A breast lift can enhance your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifting.
This figure shows the results of an inverted-T lift after several weeks of healing. The upper breast fullness and swelling have resolved, the breast tissue has "dropped", and the lower poles of the breasts have rounded out.
This inverted-T breast lift illustration shows the final skin closure and the breast shape after surgery.
During the first few weeks after surgery, the breasts are very tight, swollen and perky.
The inverted "T" breast lift results in removal of skin from around the areola, down the center of the breast and from the lower portion of the breast. The areola remains attached to the breast tissue, nerves, and blood vessels. After removal of the skin, the areola is slid into a higher position and the surrounding skin is wrapped around the breast tissue and closed with dissolvable sutures under the skin. This technique is used in moderate to severe cases of breast ptosis.
The breasts appear natural and youthful after the vertical breast lift has healed and the breasts have softened and settled.
Note the "lollipop" shaped scars around the areolas and down the center of the breasts.
The central breast skin is removed in a "key-hole" pattern. The deeper layers of the breast are usually sutured together to shape the breast. The areola is slid into a higher position and the skin is sutured closed leaving a
After fully healed, the puckering around the areola resolves, and the skin loosens and the breast settles into a soft, natural appearance.
Here, in side view, is a breast shortly after circumareolar breast lift. The breast is tight and the skin is puckered around the areola.
This drawing shows a circumareolar breast lift. For the first few weeks after surgery, the skin is very puckered around the areolas.
This example of a circumareolar breast lift shows the circular pattern of skin that is removed around the areolas. The skin is then tightened around the areolas like a "purse string" and the breasts are lifted and the areolas are repositioned in a higher location.
