For well over a decade one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery in the United States has been breast augmentation. For women who were born with naturally small or overly large breasts or those whose breasts have been effected by childbirth, weight loss, or health conditions breast augmentation is an excellent way to restore their confidence and enhance their self-image. However often the desired youthful result cannot always achieved by breast augmentation alone. That is why Dr. Berman often pairs breast augmentation with another procedure: the breast lift.
The breast lift is designed to restore a younger, firmer, and more symmetrical shape to sagging breasts. A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing shape and skin elasticity. Giving birth, breastfeeding, or a significant weight change can all exacerbate the effects. Some patients have had drooping breasts since puberty. By removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue, a breast lift surgery will raise the breasts and allow the breast profile to be reshaped and repositioned. Undesirably large or stretched areolas can also be reduced during the procedure, resulting in a better proportioned and natural looking breast. For those who require a minor lift, a small incision is made around the areola and a tiny amount of skin is removed. For moderate sagging, the incision includes the areolar incision and extends vertically from the areola to the breast crease. Lastly, for those needing a significant correction, the incision includes a third location along the breast crease. Scars with all techniques will occur but will fade as time passes.
According to the American Society for Plastic Surgeons, breast lift surgery has increased in popularity over 70 percent since the year 2000. The frequency of this operation over the years has created many new techniques, procedures, and devices that have contributed to the breast life being one of the safest, effective, and most popular cosmetic surgery options in the country.
