Known by medical professionals as mastopexy, breast lift surgery is different than breast augmentation. Breast lift raises and firms the breasts, restoring them to a more youthful position. The doctors of Premier Plastic Surgery Group of Utah will remove excess skin and tighten the surrounding tissue to raise and reshape your breast. This may be combined with breast augmentation to simultaneously raise and add volume to your breasts.
There are different types of breast lift:
- Crescent Lift
- Periareolar (Donut)
- Vertical (Lollipop)
- Full Mastopexy or Anchor Lift
Your specific needs will determine which type is the most appropriate. The doctors of Premier Plastic Surgery Group of Utah will assess your breasts and take specific measurements to determine where the nipple and areola should be positioned in relation to the breast crease (inframammary fold).
