Breast Lift Surgery reverses the effects of gravity, aging, and childbearing. It is appropriate for patients whose breasts have drooped, which is characterized by the breast tissue and nipple area resting below the crease beneath the breast. Typically the nipple and areola have moved from the middle of the breast and point downward. This procedure is frequently combined with breast augmentation in Louisville.

Goals of Surgery

The goals of Breast Lift surgery are to restore a youthful shape to the breast. The surgery will reposition the nipple and areola over the center of the breast mound. It will not restore significant fullness to the top of the breast. Breast Implants are normally used to restore the upper breast fullness and a lift to reposition the nipple and tighten the loose breast skin.
