Regain the Perkier Appearance of Your Youth
If it has been awhile since you have looked in the mirror and saw perky and beautifully contoured breasts, then know that you are not alone. As you age, the loss of the skin’s natural elasticity combines with gravity to cause your breasts to sag. The problem is often compounded by pregnancies and nursing, as well as significant weight fluctuations, and before you know it, your breasts have lost their firmness and youthful shape.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. A breast lift can help restore your breasts to the perkier appearance of your youth.
What is a Breast Lift?
The technical term for a breast lift is “mastopexy,” which is a surgical procedure designed to reshape and raise drooping or sagging breasts. The procedure can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple) or reposition nipples that point downward. A breast lift works to reshape your breasts to create or restore a more youthful, perkier appearance.
Breast Lift with Breast Implants
For some patients, we combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation to increase breast size and enhance the shape of the breasts. Combining these procedures can also increase firmness. A combination breast lift-breast augmentation procedure is particularly popular among Atlanta women whose breasts have lost volume and have begun to sag because of childbearing and breastfeeding. Whether a combination procedure is right for you will be discussed during your consultation. We’ll spend ample time with you to help you determine which treatment plan will provide you with the best results, based on your goals, expectations, and desired look.
Your Breast Lift Surgery
Your breast lift will consist of an incision made in one of three locations, depending on the plan of care that we jointly determine is best for you.
- Around your areola
- Around your areola and downward
- Around your areola, downward, and along the crease beneath your breast
Regardless of the location chosen, we will be able to improve the contour and firmness of your breasts by reshaping the underlying tissue and trimming away excess skin.
Once your procedure is complete, we will provide you with a surgical bra or bandage to help with healing and to minimize swelling. You will be provided with more detailed care instructions at the time of your surgery.
Breast lifts in Atlanta can be performed as outpatient procedures under general anesthesia. Depending on the volume of your breast tissue, your skin laxity, and desired outcome, the best approach will be determined to lift and firm your breasts.

Following pregnancy, Vertical Reduction Mastopexy was performed to restore the breast position. The vertical approach has the benefits of shortening the incision and improving breast projection.
