What is a Breast Lift?
Breast sagging occurs for many reasons. Skin loses elasticity so that the breasts cannot maintain an upright orientation. Another reason for sagging breasts is natural anatomy in which a woman’s breasts hang so that the nipples point downward. Breast surgery works by removing skin and tissue from the breasts, so they sit higher on the chest.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?
If you notice that your breasts hang loosely from your chest or that your nipples point downward, you may be a good candidate for a breast lift.
How is a Breast Lift Performed?
Dr. Palmer chooses an incision line that suits your specific needs. This may include an incision from the bottom of the areola down to the breast crease. He may also make an incision around the areola. After making the incision, Dr. Palmer reshapes the breast tissue into a more natural position and removes any excess skin. A drain may be placed in the incision before it is closed with sutures.
What is Breast Lift Recovery Like?
Breast lift surgery may result in some swelling and discomfort. Cold compresses can be used to manage these symptoms. You will wear a special surgical bra for up to three weeks to hold the tissues in place, protect the sutures, and minimize swelling. It can take up to one year for the breasts to heal completely.
How is a Breast Lift with Augmentation/Implants Performed?
If you are having implants as part of your breast lift, Dr. Palmer may use the same incision line to place the implants inside the breasts. A breast lift with augmentation/implants may extend your healing time.
