Your Breast Lift Consultation

Breast lifts do not increase breast size. If you desire larger, fuller breasts, a breast augmentation (with breast implants) can be performed at the same time as a breast lift. Many women like to combine a breast lift with a breast reduction to reduce volume in one or both breasts to decrease overall size or make the breasts the symmetrical if they are unevenly sized.
What is a Breast Lift Procedure?
A breast lift is a safe, out-patient procedure. The length of surgery time depends upon the type of surgery or if multiple procedures are performed.
A breast lift, which focuses on breast position, is often combined with breast reduction or breast augmentation (breast implants) to address size and projection. Dr. Sofer desires to customize a solution for you to create the most natural looking results that achieve your aesthetic goals.
There are multiple surgical techniques available for breast lifts. Dr. Sofer will help determine the best option to meet your unique needs.
- Periareolar Incision – A minimally-visible, circular incision is made around the areola to remove and tighten skin.
- Vertical Incision – An incision in the center of the breast allows for more reshaping by removing more skin from around the areola and lower breast.
- Inverted T Incision/Anchor – This incision is recommended for women who have severe sagging, often due to childbirth and breastfeeding or for women who have had major weight loss or weight loss surgery. The incision follows the natural contours of the breast and can remove most of the skin for the most dramatic results.
Recovery After a Breast Lift

If other procedures are combined with a breast lif thealing time might be longer., However many women find that their results are improved by adding a breast augmentation to their breast lift procedure.
