Your breast tissue can be affected as aging, pregnancy, and loss of elasticity in your skin take their toll. Women who have shed a large amount of weight may discover a loss of volume or increase in sagging. A breast lift procedure can help you avoid these pitfalls by removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple to create a rejuvenated breast appearance.
If you find that your nipples are gradually moving downward, the breast lift may be your perfect solution. Dr. Louton is able to restore a voluminous breast appearance by reshaping the breast using advanced techniques. For instance, by excising and moving the nipple to a higher position, he is able to improve the overall breast shape and create the illusion of fuller breasts. Results of a breast lift can be maintained for many years.

Breast Lift Surgery Steps
To correct sagging and create a perkier breast, incisions are made and the breast is sculpted into a new position. Excess skin is removed and the nipple is raised.
Here is what you can expect:
- Dr. Louton will administer sedation to ensure the procedure is painless. After you are fully anesthetized, small incisions are made in the breast crease and surrounding the nipple.
- Dr. Louton gently removes excess skin around the breast and nipple.
- In cases where a breast augmentation is being performed in conjunction with the breast lift, implants will be placed.
- Dr. Louton will then strategically reposition the nipple and areolar tissue.
- Dr. Louton uses sutures to close the incision sites, and a pain pump will be attached to administer a steady stream of medication to control soreness.
After surgery, most patients are back to work in one to two weeks. Sutures are removed within 10 days, and scar fading can take several months to one year.
Breast Augmentation and Lift: A Winning Combination
If you would like to dramatically increase the size of your breasts as well as achieve a more youthful position, you may want to consider combining a breast lift with a breast enlargement procedure. Here is how the two compare: While a breast lift is designed to reposition the breast into a perkier position, a breast enlargement simply increases size. If you are happy with the size of your breasts but want to combat sagging, the breast lift alone should be adequate.
The breast lift procedure can be performed on women with all breast sizes, assuming they meet the health qualifications for surgery. Whether you experience sagging due to aging, breastfeeding, or weight loss, breast lift surgery can have dramatic results. Remember that a breast lift is not intended to improve breast size, but the repositioning process can create a firmer, slightly fuller appearance.
