Breast Lift Denver

Over time, the effects of gravity along with the loss of the skin’s natural elasticity begins to have an effect on the appearance of a woman’s breasts. These factors, combined with pregnancy and nursing will often cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness.

Breast lift is performed to help raise and reshape sagging breasts to a more perky and youthful appearance. A variety of Breast lift procedures are available depending on how much lift needs to be done. Sometimes the desired result can be achieved with an incision only around the areola by simply removing excess skin around the nipple and filling out the breast tissue with a breast implant. In other cases, more of a lift is needed and the breast tissue and the nipple are re-positioned with an incision around the nipple and a vertical incision below the nipple, the so called Vertical or Lolipop Mastopexy. A personal examination by Doctor Squires will help determine which method may be best for your particular goals.

Breast Lift Techniques

There are various breast lift techniques available. Dr. Squires individualizes the surgical approach based on the degree of breast elevation required, also taking into account a patient’s overall breast size and inherent tissue tone. Patients with looser, lax tissues require more skin and tissue tightening in all dimensions and this will be discussed during the initial consultation.

Patients should be prepared for the trade-off of permanent scarring on the breast from this surgery. There is no other way to effectively lift and tighten breast tissues without some external scarring. It should be noted that the scars are acceptable for the majority of women as they hide along natural breast contours, and fade to normal skin color over time.

Most breast lift patients say the benefits of fitting into various clothing styles and bikini styles that look great and fit comfortably typically outweigh the presence of hidden and inconspicuous scars. Our patients feel confident, youthful, healthy, and sexy with perkier, firmer breasts.
