What a breast lift does

A breast lift is a procedure to, from a surgeon’s standpoint, lift the nipple-areolar complex to the right anatomical position. As a surgeon, before performing a breast lift, I mark the area where the nipple is supposed to be and measure the distance to where the nipple is at the moment. Using this measurement, I then lift the nipple and areola to the right anatomical place.

The breast lift by itself will lift your breast tissue, but will also make your breast smaller. So, before having your breast consultation, you need to determine what breast size you want. If you want it to be bigger, you will need a breast implant at the same time as the breast lift. If you want it to be the same size, and you have enough tissue, lifting the breast will recreate a nice mound, keeping your breast tissue intact. Finally, if you have significant breast sagginess and you have lost breast volume, the breast lift by itself will decrease the breast size. So the results of a breast lift will be determined by the amount of sagginess and breast volume that you have.

But why is there a decrease in breast size with a breast lift? Well, when we perform a breast lift, what we are doing is removing the excess skin to fit whatever breast tissue you have. In other words, the excess skin is removed while the breast tissue is preserved and the nipple-areolar complex is repositioned to the right place.

Understanding what a breast lift with an implant can do for you is essential so you have a better idea of your eventual breast size. Most patients with significant sagginess come to the clinic thinking that they have a certain cup size, but in reality there is a big difference between what appears to be your breast and the actual breast tissue that will be used to mold your breast. In other words, your breasts appear to be big because of the excess skin and the amount of sagginess, but you will have a significant decrease in breast volume once the skin is removed. Most of the time, when you perform a breast lift without an implant, the breast will be smaller; in some cases it will stay a similar size.

Understanding what a breast lift can do for you in terms of volume and size is imperative for you to be happy with the goal of not only repositioning your breast and your nipple-areolar complex, but also recreating the breast volume that you desire.
