It’s quite common for things like the natural processes of aging, the effects of gravity, or changes in your body after significant weight loss, pregnancy or breast feeding to alter the shape of your breasts.
In recent years, breast lift procedures have become a popular way to restore the youthful look of your breasts, without having to resort to artificial implants. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has found that breast lifts procedures are performed twice as often as other breast augmentation procedures.
The breast lift procedure raises your breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the skin. This effectively reshapes each breast and renews support.
At Charles V. Pledger, MD we employ an incision strategy based on your current breast shape and areola location. This might call for making an incision around the areola of each breast to adjust its size and location. From there an incision can be made down from the areola to the base of the breast to remove skin. This will help to tighten and lift the breast.
Another Charles V. Pledger, MD incision strategy adjusts the areola and includes a vertical incision down from the breast crease followed by a horizontal incision.
At Charles V. Pledger, MD our physicians always try to make the incisions in a natural crease in the breast. In time the incision lines will start to fade naturally.
If you are interested in a breast lift procedure or you would like to schedule a consultation, please feel free to call Charles V. Pledger, MD at 801-373-4300 to schedule an appointment.
