Size is not the only factor that makes your breasts more appealing. ABPS board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Koltz offers breast lift surgery in Toledo, OH to restore firmer and more youthful looking breasts if they are sagging with nipples pointing downwards. Breast lift plastic surgery can be performed as an independent procedure or in conjunction with breast implants.
Dr. Koltz will eliminate excess skin from the breasts, gently lift and reshape the tissue, and reposition to the nipple-areolar complex to a more youthful level as part of your breast lift surgery. If the areolas have become overstretched, he will resize them to create a more attractive and proportionate overall breast appearance.
Benefits of a Breast Lift Surgery
Aging, gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, and heredity factors can cause your breasts to sag and lose their natural shape. You can choose a breast lift surgery to achieve the following aesthetic benefits:
- Reverse the effects of aging to restore perkier looking breasts
- Enhance the breast shape and firmness after pregnancy
- Restore tighter and younger looking breasts after weight loss
- Reposition the nipples and areolas to a forward facing level
- Make the breasts appear fuller and shapelier in a bra
- Correct breast asymmetry and restore shape to tuberous breasts
- Improve both size and firmness when combined with breast implants
Types of Breast Lift Surgery
Dr. Koltz will consider factors such as the extent of sagging in the breasts, shape, and size of the breasts in proportion to other body features, and your individual cosmetic goals to create a custom breast lift surgery plan with minimal visible scarring.
Popularly known as a “Donut Lift,” this breast lift technique involves just one scar to correct mild sagging in your breasts. Dr. Koltz will create a circumferential incision around the areola border. This procedure is usually combined with breast augmentation for more effective results.
For more significant breast tissue reshaping and lifting, your surgeon may perform a vertical lift, more commonly known as a “Lollipop Lift.” In this case, one incision is placed around the areola’s outer edge, while a second incision goes vertically down to the breast fold.
Heavily drooping or pendulous breasts can be reshaped and lifted with a more invasive anchor lift surgery. Dr. Koltz will create two incisions similar to a vertical lift, followed by a third horizontal incision hidden along the breast fold. Extensive breast reshaping is possible with this surgery.
If the breasts are only mildly droopy, Dr. Koltz may perform a crescent breast lift surgery. He will create a minor incision around the upper half of the areola border to tighten the breast tissue. A crescent lift may be more useful if you are having a breast implant surgery.
Breast Lift Combined with Breast Augmentation
If you are bothered by the appearance of sagging breasts, but the breasts have also lost volume over the years, you may benefit from a combined breast augmentation with lift plastic surgery. Dr. Koltz will create both fuller-looking and lifted breasts with a single procedure to dramatically enhance your overall upper body appearance.
