Bring Back a More Youthful Silhouette With a Breast Lift

Women of all ages and backgrounds choose to undergo breast lifts for many personal reasons. More women are choosing to contour rather than alter their natural shape. While implants are still popular and very common, breast lift procedures are gaining popularity.

If you’d like to change or improve the shape of your breasts, we can help. Our plastic surgeon Dr. Rick Smith and our team offer breast lifts and cosmetic surgery procedures at our office in East Lansing, Michigan.

What you should understand about breast lift surgery

A breast lift procedure (also known as a mastopexy) contours and reshapes breasts by tightening loose skin and supporting tissue to raise the breasts for a firmer, more youthful silhouette. Drooping or sagging breasts are a normal part of the aging process and can be more pronounced after childbirth and breastfeeding. 

Depending on the size and shape of your breasts, the position and size of the areolas, and the degree of skin laxity, a breast lift typically consists of lifting the underlying breast tissue, removing excess skin, and reshaping the areolas to improve symmetry. Depending on breast size, some women also get breast implants as part of the breast lift for more firmness and to increase cup size.

What should I expect before, during, and after a breast lift procedure?

If you’re considering a breast lift or other type of breast augmentation or body contouring, the first step is to schedule a consultation with our team. At your appointment, Dr. Smith will discuss your goals and recommend the best procedure for your needs.

The breast lift is performed under anesthesia to keep you comfortable and one or more incisions will be necessary to lift the tissue and remove excess skin. Although our team will make every effort to make the incisions as discreet as possible, there will be a small scar at the incision site after the procedure (incision scars may fade and become less pronounced over time).

Is a breast lift right for me?

Some of the general guidelines for getting a breast lift include:

The decision to undergo a breast procedure or body contouring option is highly personal. Women choose cosmetic procedures for many reasons, including improving their appearance, managing the signs of the aging process, and personal fulfillment. 

You deserve a body you love. For more information about breast lifts and whether it’s right for you, contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Smith at our office in East Lansing, Michigan.
