Breast lift surgery is a procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. As skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their youthful shape and firmness. Additional factors such as pregnancy, nursing and weight loss can cause the breasts to sag. While breast lift surgery will not permanently lift the breasts, the procedure can significantly delay the effects of aging and gravity.

Breast lift surgery can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery to increase both the firmness and size of the breasts. Dr. Ackerman is one of the few surgeons to perform the innovative vertical lift, which eliminates the large scar below the breast and allows for a much longer lasting lift.
What to Expect

Reasons for undergoing a breast lift:

  • Breasts that lack substance or firmness.
  • Some of the candidates have breasts that are pendulous, but are of satisfactory size.
  • Nipples and areolas that point downwards, especially if they are positioned below the breast crease.
  • Loss of elasticity, weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding affect the shape and firmness of the breasts.

The plastic surgeon will examine your breasts and take measurements. The size and shape of your breasts and the placements of nipples and areolas will be carefully evaluated. Medical history will be discussed like medicine conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments received, and previous surgeries. If there was a weight loss, your weight should be stabilized before surgery.
